What do parents/students think of the school now that its Spanish Immersion? I was planning on sending my kids to Adams in St Paul, but Little Canada is so much closer.

LC is a friendly school ideal for special needs. However, if youe child is gifted or a high achiever I would NOT recommend it.

The title one class is just as big the normal one. They are not providing a quality education for children who need a litle more boost. Some teachers do not communicate well enough with you as the parent.

I love Little Canada School. They have a fabulous special ed program and the principal gets involved in the children's education. If I had to move to another city, I would probably still send my kids to Little Canada School.
