Posted January 10, 2012
I am in my first year as Principal at Little Flower, but I have more than 30 years in Catholic leadership positions. I have found Little Flower to be a wonderful school with great kids, an excellent parent community and dedicated teachers and staff. All academic and spiritual programs are working effectively and we look forward to adding additional enhancements to the curriculum next year.
I have two children at LFS. I love the small class size, individual attention, and family atmosphere. Teachers and principal are always out to get the kids out of cars and buses each morning. Teachers wave at you after getting out of the car and walking to the school. When I have questions or concerns they are addressed promptly. The school is growing and adding in new programs that I care about. The teachers that our kids have had so far have been excellent and I hear it from other parent's and friends that I can expect that to continue. My kids are thriving and I am presently surprised each day what they learn. The school has also worked with us parents to control tuition cost while working to improve resources and offerings. I highly recommend this school...you don't feel like a number and it really does feel like a family.
I've been impressed with the teachers and staff at LFS. The principle is a great communicator and has demonstrated excellent leadership from day one. I have two daughters attending and have been thrilled at their progress in reading, math and problem solving. Both look forward to going to school every day; this is due to the commitment and postivie reinforcement of the teachers and staff. I have had a lot of fun with the volunteer time at the school, because of the "espirit de corps" of all the parents involved, as they do so with enthusiasm and "can-do" attitude. Overall, its been a very positive experience for my family and kids.
My son is a third generation Little Flower student and loving it! My little guy is finishing up his second year at Little Flower and absolutely loves his school! He is finishing up kindergarten now and READING everything he can get his hands on! He has also learned about religion, math, science, art, music, and physical education. As a parent I love how the faculty and staff know every student by name. My son walks in every morning feeling like he belongs there. That is a pretty awesome feeling for a kid to have! Many activities are available for the kids throughout the year. The children (of all ages) can participate in an All Saint's Day (costume) parade, bring a pet for the "Blessing of the Pets," or participate in the Catholic School Relay Races in the Spring. The older children have Band, Chorus, Reef Club, Chess Club, Basketball, and Cheerleading. Since the school is small, parent involvement is important. There are requirements for volunteer hours and fundraising but with a little effort, they are really not hard to meet. I am thrilled with the quality of education that my son is getting and by the caring and nuturing environment that he is in...At LFS you are family!
Little Flower School is an excellent school on all levels. It's teachers and staff are dedicated and caring. We have been at the school for 6 years now and have been very pleased. The class sizes are small and the children are living their Catholic faith every day. They attend mass once a week. The priests are in the school every day and there is now a nun assisting in kindergarten. Warm, welcoming environment. Excellent academics.
I've been a Little Flower Parent for 14 years now, with my youngest in that wonderful transition year from elementary to middle school. The academic and spiritual foundation provided at LFS, combined with genuinely caring and dedicated teachers and staff provides a great springboard for success in high school, college and beyond.
My child attended LFS for 4 years. We were very pleased with the experience for the first year. After that, I do not feel that my child got the instruction or attention that was needed. The teachers were very strict and seemed to care more about students conforming to an ideal model than about developing their talents and self-esteem. I was also extremely disappointed as tuition continued to increase and programs and staff were cut back in an attempt to cut costs, providing less and less as more money and volunteer time was required from parents. This was not the best use of my time or resouces to provide an education for my child. My child is attending a differently school this year.
Teachers: Excellent. They provide a caring, nurturing and structured environment conducive for learning. They give individualized attention and recognize abilities and skills of the students. The students have opportunities to excel and are praised for their successes. Principal Leadership: Excellent. Sincere and genuine care for the school, faculty, students and community. Greets students in the morning. Always projects a very positive light. Parent Involvement: Excellent. Involvement is encouraged. As parents, we have been welcomed into the school community. Our ideas and participation has never been turned away. At the same time, parents who are unable to be as involved because of work or other obligations is understood. Last year we could not be as involved because of our move and there was never additional pressures. This year, we are able and grateful to have the opportunity of involvement. Administration is wonderful. Always welcoming and understanding. I can not say enough about them and their willingness to help the parents and students. Our family is proud and fortunate to belong to this community of growth.
As a military family, we move every three years, nothing compares with the environment created at LFS by the Staff & Families. Best decision we have ever made for our children. High standards: academic, moral, and spiritual are integrated in a tailored curriculum that elevates its Catholic identity. The conversations that occur at my dinner table are reinforced by the conversations that occur in school. This reinforcement provides a consistent message that God is at the center and not just reserved for Sunday.
Little Flower School has an outstanding middle school program. Their teachers are caring and professional. Students are challenged by the classwork and learn study skills that will help them in high school and beyond.
I have 2 children in LFS. This is has been a great experience for our whole family. The teachers are great and really care for the students
I have a 6 year old with sight in one eye. She is of Mexican ancestry. She has one parent who has not maintained contact. She has some psychological reperucussions. She began attending Little Flower this year and has received support from all levels of teachers. Her scolastic achivements are high and home disclipline is no longer a problem. She is interested in music and this has been encouraged at the school.
Little Flower is an outstanding catholic school. The teachers are wonderful (especially Ms. K and Ms. A). They dedicate their heart and soul into the students. Thank you Little Flower teachers and staff for touching the lives of so many children!
Great school, great teachers, great students, great beliefs and morals!
This is my daughter's second year at LFS. She loves it and so do I. I am very pleased with the teachers as well as with administration. It is a safe, Catholic environment for children to grow up physically, emotionally, and spriritually. Would recommend this school to everyone!
I am a parent of a pre k student at LFS. I love the school. Administration is very organized, teachers are very caring and my daughter loves the school as well. I would recommend LFS to anyone looking for a good, Catholic environment for their child's academic and social development.
We moved here mid-year and enrolled our son in Little Flower school. We are so happy with the school. The administration/teachers are warm and friendly. Communication with parents is very good. And the children have an opportunity to play outside twice daily...this is very important to our family. We are so thankful that we found Little Flower!
