My TAG kid went here for first and second grade. The administration is not very helpful or cooperative with military. Mostly they cater to permanent students. Some newer teachers are great but the "old school" ones aren't accommodating to parents who want to be involved. If you know what your child needs and what you are entitled to receive, you can get it--but be prepared to fight for it.
My son is autistic and attended preschool and kindergarten here (so far). The special education teachers are wonderful and have really helped him to overcome his challenges. His speech has improved tremendously! The administration is OK, they aren't incredibly communicative but the school runs well. If you want up to date information on what's going on and how things work it's easier to get information out of teachers and other parents than the administration.
I went to Lansing from Kindergarten through graduation and so did both of my younger siblings. Now I am so happy to have three of my children going to Lansing, and out of the Leavenworth school district. I also have friends who now swear by the Lansing schools, after taking their children out of Leavenworth to home school them, and then work to get approved for out of district enrollment for their children.
We are in the military and stationed at Ft. Leavenworth for 3 years. Our oldest son is autistic and in a main stream classroom at Lansing Elementary. He has his own para and has speech and OT with the school as well. We have been extremely pleased with his progress. His Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Cioppa, is fantastic. She is exactly what he needed to help him build a strong foundation both academically and socially.
We are military and were stationed in KS for one year. Our oldest (Jason) went to Kindergarten and he loved his teacher Mrs. Rothmeyer. The school environment is great also. My son misses his teacher and I hope his next teacher is just as involved as Mrs. Rothmeyer was.
We love Mrs. Moorehead! My son is eager to get to school every morning...he loves kindergarten!
