Overall this is a great school. My son's teacher is wonderful and the LMC staff is fantastic. There is a lot of parent participation and community involvement; the office staff is very friendly and helpful. However, the new Principal, David Worst, has a more business style approach to running the school and has very little face time with either students or parents. This isn't necessarily bad but it is different from the previous principal. There also needs to be more attentive supervision on the playground, especially in the younger grades.
This is a school in the middle of single family homes. The school is within walking distance of the vast majority of the students. The principal is Kathy Pease. She is excellent! She is very deserving of the awards she has won in the state for the last two years. She knows the parents and the kids. There is a high degree of parent participation in the classroom and with homework. The entire staff of teachers, custodians, and office personnel are nice and cooperative. The school has a curriculum for the gifted students. Like any school, the teachers have their own style. They are extremely open to input.
This is an excellent school where all kids walk. They have high parent involvement and an excellent Principal in Kathy Pease who knows every childs name. They have the entire spectrum covered from challenged to precocious with an enrichrmnt program as well as a gifted program called 'project arrow'. The faculty allows each child to develop at hisor her own pace. Several opportunities exixt for extracuricular activitites from the traditional of girl scouts/cub scouts to a animal appreciation after school program. All student take music, art and gym adn there is ample opportunity for individuals to shine if they give extra effort. Their accelerated Reading program (grades 2-5) keeps students motivated to read. I rate this school as a gem.
