This upcoming school year my daughter will no longer attend Lloyd our neighborhood school. She will be going into the 3rd grade at a kindergarten grade reading level. I've tried everything to help her but I felt the school wasn't doing enough to get her at her reading level. When I asked about after school programs for her reading I was told she was way below her grade level and that the programs were only offered for kids almost at reading level. This school is over crowded and has lost the true reason of being a school which is to help students reach there full potential.

My daughter attended this school pre k through 2nd grade and she is transferring to a new school the upcoming year because this school did not help her. My daughter is at a kindergarten reading level and as much as I try to help her I felt her school wasn't doing enough for her. There are after school programs available but she did not "qualify" for them because she was way under her reading level. Those programs are for students almost meeting there reading level. So they basically forget about the rest. Every child should be entitled to extra help if needed. I hope my daughter recieve a better education a her new school.

Mrs. Espinoza is a was the kindest and most helpful human being. When I was looking for a little extra help with my daughter she was amazing in working with us and the Lighthouse vision clinic. I would love to thank Mr. Harris for helping my daughter so much and Mr. G for being the greatest computer teacher. All these teachers deserve the credit for all their hard work and dedication with so much passion for what they do on a daily basis!

Its sad to see an excellent teacher (Miss Alvarez) struggle to teach her kids. There are many students in her classroom that need help but the administration seems to not bother with it. Its easier to sweep things underneath the rug. Miss Alvarez and Ms. Sheela are really fantastic teachers and deserve ALOT better than what they have been given. It seems as though that even in the past this school can not get a good Principal. What is wrong with CPS?

During the 2001-2003 school year semesters, I attended Lloyd Elementary as a 4th and 5th grader. Now, I am 20 years old and I still recall the academic programs this school provided for the students. As a whole, this school was viewed to me as a social gathering rather than an academic enhancer. I enjoyed meeting the friends I did, but as a school, I did not learn much. It was only after I moved out of that area that I was able to read, write, and learn in a profound manner. Students who attend in your children's school truly does affect the way they learn. I suggest you give your children an extra helping hand and enroll them in an after school program or a tutor. Students learn better if they know they are good at it!

I feel the principal at this school DOES NOT treat the staff nor the parents with any respect.

Before this new principal this school was not so bad but now the school is going down because the principal changed almost all teachers when he came he closed doors for parents because he tought the parents we weren't necesaries for school.but parents did not care what he did and spoke with Lsc who revoqued what trincipal said.

This used to be a better school, but the principal changed a few years ago. Now there is a new principal and he has been mean to the good teachers and community. This man is from New York and knows nothing about Chicago or the students here. He is arrogant and does not care about the kids. He speaks some Spanish, but he still doesn't know how to relate to the families and people in the neighborhood. Now the good experienced teachers all leaving. The teachers that are left are not happy. The principal hired all new teachers who do not know anything about the neighborhood or the people in the community. And the kids test scores are going down too. The principal is a poor leader. He is never in the office when you want to speak to him. He has the secretary talk to you instead. The LSC and CPS needs to get rid of this principal. This school needs a better principal so it can improve. Right now it is below average because of him.

Ms. Delapena & Ms. Mendez are patient, kind and understanding to their students' needs. In the short amount of time I have know them there has been a lot of involvement with the kids and much improvement. I look forward to the years to come. The only downside to the school is the involvement of the principal, and office staff. They don't have the desire to be in the school when they are needed. When I have a question that needs to be answer they seem to give me the run around they never return my calls let alone give me resoultion.I hope that they will continue their efforts in maintaining academic excellence, which seems to be overlooked in my opinion.

I have a daughter who is in the third grade.She has attended Lloyd since kdg & although there are teachers who truly are dedicated to what they do the majority are there just for a paycheck , starting with the principal who is never able to help out anyone.I've been trying since June to get my daughter placed back in the billingual program & so far nothing. I've called the office several times.Sometimes the phone is not answered ,other times I've left messages & nobody ever calls me back , I've even taken time off from work to go there, only to be told that the person who can help me out is in a meeting & that they're unsure of when she will be available.The principal who im sure can help me claims she cannot do anything.I am very disgusted with Lloyd.

Although my son is only in Pre-k., My husband and I are very happy with his teacher Ms. Sheela and her assistant Ms. Rosita. They are very patient with the children. It's not easy to work with 17 four year old children. My son is very happy, he loves school, and each day he tells me what he has learned. They also inform the parents as to what they are working on, and they ask their assistant to continue with current skills they are teaching as home. I have also attended the meetings which are held once a month to assist parents in helping their children, as well as improving themselves as parents and educating them on the choices they have to improve themselves in the work field.

Lloyd school is staff with teachers who are very dedicated. Though teachers are only paid until 2:30 if one drives around the school's parking lot one will notice that teachers still stay after 5pm without pay. Teacher's here take their job seriously and commit to do whatever they can to enhance student learning. Unfortunatly, the Chicago public school system labels many of these teachers as unqualified because they have either not taken or passed a specific test that is required to take. (teacher's are being let go) Parents are being confused my this message and judge good teachers. If teachers are allowed to demonstrate their creativity instead of over loading them with tedious tasks, students will go above and beyond. Yes, teachers are also going to school to learn new techniques to improve their teaching skills. They go to workshops when students have a half day or schools are closed.

I think Lloyd is a pretty good school. I have two kids at Lloyd and I can say that the teachers are pretty good we have to think that the teachers do they part in school and it is our resposability as parents to do our part at home I think that this may help our kids we both parents and teacher should work together. We as parents should visit the school and, why don't you volunteer at school so that you can check the enviorment of Lloyd. I think Lloyd is a good school.

I think that Lloyd school is not a very good school. The principal is not doing a good job. The school scores are low due to the teaching the teachers are give to our kids. Some teacher are doing their jobs but others are not! The staff at Lloyd school are afraid to speak what's on their mine because of the principal. The principal care to much about the uniform and the kids behavior and trying to teach the spanish then their education. I think they should have more meeting in the evening then in the morning. Their are parents that would love to attend meetings but they work.
