Posted January 14, 2014

I am very happy with the education my son is getting at Lewis & Clark Elementary. He is in his 2nd year at the school and he was just as excited to attend this year as last. The principal is very involved in everything that goes on at the school and the atmosphere is very positive. I am pleased with the teachers, curriculum, the amount of homework (never too much), and the overall learning environment.

It is a great comfort to me and my husband to have our child attending Lewis and Clark. The atmosphere is so friendly and inviting. I visit the school often and I'm always impressed with the student activities and academics taking place. The teachers are great! The principal seems to genuinly care about the students and the families of this community. We need more schools like Lewis and Clark!

With 'No Child Left Behind' and many schools not making AYP, parents are now given the option to send kids to other schools in the district. I wouldn't move my child to any other school in the district. The education, guidance, nurturing, and climate at Lewis and Clark is superior. I have had 3 of my children go through this school and my last child is now in the 3rd grade. The welcoming environment in the office and throughout the building is evident every time I visit. The teachers work very hard making sure students needs are met. The principal shows great leadership and awareness of the people in the community and their needs. I am proud to say that my child attends Lewis and Clark Elementary.

I'm looking forward to the beginning of school as my child will be attending Lewis and Clark Elementary for his third year. I appreciate the way the teachers nurture and encourage the students. Since my child has attended this school he has made great progress. I like the individual attention that is given to students no matter what their abilities. The administrator is a great asset to the school as she really takes a personal interest in the students. I feel fortunate to have my child attending a school with people that really care.

My child has a disability and has not always felt accepted at other schools. Since she has been at Lewis and Clark her attitude has changed about school. She now loves going to school and she feels good about herself. I know that a great deal of credit goes to the principal and staff. I can't thank the principal enough for all she did to make sure that my child got her needs met. She went out of her way to get us the help we needed. This school is lead with great values, love and nurturing of students. I have also been inpressed with the teachers and their ability to make learning fun. Thanks for all you do to make a difference in the lives of children.

I am very impressed with the teachers, staff and principal at my childrens school. We moved here from Chicago a couple of years ago and the change in schools has been wonderful. Two of my children attend Lewis and Clark and they love it! My children have received a great education and everyone is so friendly and willing to help. The atmoshpere is friendly and welcoming. I am impressed with the leadership and the caring staff at Lewis and Clark.

The school in general and teachers all seem to be adequate to above average. The principal leadership is undesireable.

I went through Lewis and Clark as a child and was excited at the prospect of sending my child to the same school. The teachers give 110% of themselves to their children you can tell they truly care.

The new admimistration leaves a lot to be desired. The principal (her first year as a principal) does not discipline the children appropriately. The superintendent does not offer any help with the situation. I have chosen home to home school rather than tolerate the situation any longer.
