When students feel free to cyber bully my child and teachers are not listened to, how do you expect students to develop any sort of respect?

Develops empathy: Strongly disagree
July 05, 2015
This school defends and caters to bullies and dies very little to discipline those who are out of line.

Develops honesty: Strongly disagree

The principal lies often, doesn't care about the well being of the students and when she communicates you can't understand what she is saying. Shouldn't the principal of a school speak English?

Teacher effectiveness: Effective
July 05, 2015
Most of the teachers are great and very committed to the students and the community. However, there are a few teachers that as a parent I still can't figure out why are they still teaching. Those few are highly unprofessional, lazy and kids really don't learn much from them.

My son has been at Lords Park from 1st-5th grade. I'm very pleased by the academic programs and the skills he has learned thus far. I'm very delighted to tell you about Mr. Killeen the principal. He is very professional and runs a tight ship. It is very organized and a cheerful place. The teachers are very educated.

We also have a child in 5th grade. Since the boundaries have changed the school has definitely gone down hill. While the most of the staff tries there are a few who do not deserve to teach but are only at the school because of tenure. The new students have also change the culture of the school. We are actually looking to move away from this school before our youngest will start attending. It s a shame we move here because of the schools reputation only to have it change to suit developers in the area. New school, no student for them, no money in the district. Thanks U46

We have had one child go through and another in 4th grade. We believe the staff is very good and works hard for the children. The feel of the school has changed since the boundaries were moved.
