We have not been very impressed with the teachimg staff at Larsen. Personally, I feel that most are there just to collect a paycheck and don't really care about the kids. When teachers yell 'shut up' to a class, it doesn't send a message of professionalism either. Standards are quite low. When your child can bump up his grade by bringing in a box of kleenex, it says a lot. Principal not in tune either.
my son goes to the gifted program in this school; I will have 2 of them in the program this coming 09-10 SYear. I thought at first it was a mediocre school judging from the outside and hearsay, but after this SY, I am pretty impressed on the safety, academic excellence and discipline the school maintains.
Larsen is an okay school. The bathrooms are pretty clean (accept for the locker room bathrooms). Probably on average theres only about 4-6 fights a year. So I guess i like it here at Larsen. Mr. Fulton who is the principal is a pretty nice guy. Overall Larsen is a good school.
