Our son attended Loring from K to- 2nd and he excelled ! He was happy and enjoyed this school. Excellent music program!

My son is just started in High Five with Loring. I've fell in love with the school. My sons writing ability improved within just 25 days of school. It's a caring school, you feel this across all of the staff. I look forward to the next several years for both of my children here. The school offers many community events also.

I love this school because the atmosphere is friendly and all the teachers care about their students. As a former Loring School Student I will tell you that some of my same teachers are there if they have not retired and that is a good sign that the teachers stay around because that means they believe in the school as well.

My children attended Loring and not only is it strong in academics, my children felt safe at school in an inner-city environment where so many people feel uneasy. All the staff is loving and caring, and it is still a pleasant place to visit.

Great school, my grandson enjoys his time there and I am glad of the small class room number and attention available to each student.

This school is phenomenal - excellent teachers and staff, highly innovative award-winning curriculum, and the parents and surrounding community have all been wonderful! We couldn't be happier with our Loring School experience!
