My grandsons go to Lutherville Laboratory, I have helped out in the classrooms, gone on school trips with the school. I have never witnessed a better school then this. The students seem to all get along. They really enjoy the work that is asked of them to do. The teaches and other staff have always be so professional, friendly and just very helpful every time I have been there. I do believe emphasis on the sciences and math programs there are the best in educating these students. I have seen my grandsons just become very bright young students from their learning process at Lutherville. It would be a great disservice if Lutherville Loboratory is not chosen.

This is an Excellent school. I wouldn't ask for another public school for my daughter who is in grade 2 to attend. The faculty and staff are very knowledgeable and caring. My child can not wait to get back to school at Lutherville Lab. I will recommend this great elementary school to anyone.

I graduated from Lutherville Lab last school season. I made a lot of really great friends and the teachers were really helpful. The GT program was excellent and it really broadened my horizons. This is definitely a great place to send your kids. I also really liked the music program and the band and orchestra instructor. They also made 5th grade really fun with things like steel drum band and winter concerts. A very wide and diverse school with really cool clubs and really diverse students.

Lutherville is one of the best public elementary schools in the state. [URL]http://www.msp.msde.state.md.us/Assessments.aspx?K=030803&WDATA=School[/URL] Strong STEM program, after school activities, highly-coveted magnet school. This is a great school where the teachers, staff and administrators really care and do their best to help your child succeed.

My dauther attends the special education kindergarten class here and I would do anything if she could continue with a class like this for her continuing grades. Lutherville is AMAZING! I'm sad I don't live in the district and am only hoping my kids will be able to get in via the magnet program.

My daughter entered this schools as a Magnet student in kindergarden. She is now in 4th grade and this school has been amazing! Not only do the teachers and staff create an outstanding learning environment, they also help the kids to feel special and make learning enjoyable. This is hands down the best public school ever.

We are in the magnet part of this school and although we are not in the neighborhood we feel very welcomed. The teachers care very much about all the students. My son loves his school.

We moved our family to this area in order to be in a top rated school disttict. To date, we have not been disappointed with Lutherville Lab. There is a very strong committment to learning, family involvement, and getting to know each student individually. It is wonderful to have a real 'neighborhood' feel to the school. The science, technology, and math programs are top-notch, as well as solid reading and language arts programs. The school's multi-cultural programs are wonderful as are the family involved art night, ice cream social, and writer's workshop to name a few. We look forward to being a part of the Lutherville family for many years to come.
