The leadership at this school is unqualified with no teaching experience above 1st grade. The leadership allows teachers too much freedom, having very loose expectations of the teaching staff. They need to make teachers responsible for expectations set.

Lines is a friendly, academically challenging school. Parental involvement is top notch and age-appropriate extracurricular activities abound. They offer a pull-out gifted program for reading (4,5) and math (3,4,5) as well as a high emphasis on small group tutoring for those behind grade level. There's a reason why this has been a blue ribbon school TWICE (only a handful of schools have that distinction).

I have 2 kids at lines. we have moved from other academically challenging states (NY, NJ). I have been impressed with Lines academic standards. It is challenging, yet it does not overwhelm the kids. They are concerned with balance and have been friendly. I have no complaints.

We currently have two children attending Lines, and we've found the staff and administration to be incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the latest trends in teaching. The teachers really seem to care about the children as individuals. I'm glad that the state has recognized the school's impressive results as well (Lines recently received the Blue Ribbon Award). And, I think one of the best parts of having our children attend this school is the sense of community among the families.

I have found that Lines school academics are by far better than some other local schools, the staff is incredible, caring, compassionite, and hard when needed to be. I am glad to have found this school.
