We went to Lessenger through school of choice for the Chinese Language program. Chinese class time seems to have decreased since we originally understood it, however the program is still a unique opportunity in the Detroit area. The teachers and principle have all been very accommodating and great to work with. Madison Heights is a small community in a bigger metro area and Lessenger benefits from both, an active local parent community and diversity. Our child has made a lot of good friends and we have been happy the education.

I am very happy with the Teachers and Principal. I think they try very hard to teach our children to really start to forward think and empower the kids to think for them self. I love the conversations I have with my kids about school. The Parents are a part of the school and I think that makes a big difference.

Coming from the Madison District, it didn't take much to impress me; however, this school is beyond anything I could have hoped for! My children (1st and 5th graders) are both excelling and really enjoy going to school.

I have two children at Lessenger pre-k and 4th grade. The Teacher teaches the curriculum but they also give great social support at lessenger. I know that when my child is away at school they are in good hands. I do not have to worry about either of them. My children stay intrigued, stimulated and organized at lessenger. Mrs. Jarvis is great the teachers highly qualified and supportive.

This is the worst school ever! I had three children enrolled (preschool, 2nd grade and 4th grade) and the teachers were all terrible. Let me make my self clear... Both of my school age children were very advanced and had no issues in prior schools.(My son won the spelling bee, etc) Lessenger does get high marks for academics... It's nice to know how well the teachers score on the MEAPS. Also in closing, I was the Room Mom in my childrens class and was the V.P at the prior school. My children are now at Hiller and very happy!!!

As a parent of 2 children attending Lessenger since 2003, I have to say I'm totally impressed with everything about this school. Coming into the school, my oldest had some behavior and socialization problems. The teacher tried everything in her power to help. The principal was beyond helpful! As a team, we worked to find a 'cure.' We helped him to become a better student. The extracurricular activities are fabulous. Parental involvement is stellar. I've read a couple of negative reviews and think that maybe these parents weren't the kind to give to the school, but only wanted the school to give to them. I recommend this school extensively!

This school is wonderful, my son gets all the support he needs. I'm so glad there is schools of choice. My daughter now attends kindergarten at Lessenger and loves it! There is more parent & staff involvement than I have ever seen at my sons previous schools. My youngest attends the preschool at Lessenger also and she loves it. If I didn't take my son out of the district we belong to he would still be having such a hard time and being made fun of by other kids. This doesn't happen at this school. The staff are all great. Our whole family loves Lessenger!!!

I am shocked as well with the comment from Nevember 2004. This school has done so much to help my child. Everyone there does so much. We come from another district & the difference is very noticable. So I can say I am glad also that there is schools of choice! If not my child wouldnt be getting the extra help he needs.

I am shocked by the November 2004 comment by a parent. Perhaps that student had some issues? Lessenger is a wonderful school. My children have all thrived here. The teachers (including art, music and gym), the principal, latch key staff, lunchroom staff, secretaries and janitorial staff are ALL wonderful. We couldn't ask for a better school or curriculum. The extra-curricular programs and events are well thought out and maintained. With so many working parents in the school community I am still amazed at the involvement we have here at Lessenger. Thank you Lessenger for enriching my children in so many ways. I never have to worry about my child, I know she is safe and in good hands. There is never a day that she does not want to go to school! What a loving and caring school we have! Chris

I love the principal of this school! She is genuinely concerned with the children and their families. There is a high number of special needs students here. She is willing to work with the parents concerning school discipline for each child's individual social/emotional needs. I had a serious issue with bus transportation that no one else seemed to want to try to solve. As a last resort, I contacted the principal not knowing if she would care or tell me bus trans- portation was not her concern. She was very pleased that I talked to her. She said she thought there was an issue with this particular bus, but had no idea it was that serious. She dealt with the problem and made a phone call. I did not have another problem. Had I known her level of concern I would have gone to her earlier concerning this issue.

Lessenger has been nothing short of wonderful. I find the Teachers and staff more than willing to help. They offer Cooking club, which my children LOVE, they also have family fun nights at no charge. It is a wonderful school family to be a part of.

The more my child is at this school the less I am impressed. I am told that this is the best elementary out of the 4 elementaries in Lamphere. If that is true, they better re-define the word best. The teachers teach the cirriculum but not the student. Lamphere district is not as great as I was told. The test scores may be right up there but the standards, ethics and conduct are not. I fault the district administrators as well as the school's faculty. Wake up Lamphere - your district is failing the grade with parents and students. Thank goodness there is school of choice - I intend to exercise that option.
