I am hurt that this schools doesn't understand children who are slower learners. I would appreciate if they cared more about feelings rather than looking good!! The staff at this school seem unhappy. My child was a happy kids until he started going here. If your child is perfect and excels this school will be fine, but if your child has any delays, this school will be a nightmare.

Well, they made my son do that they could do whatever u could do, but they made him do something else because they didn't want him to do a war diarama. I don't think this is fair, because they, the students, could do what ever project they want.

Overall we moved to GV because of the schools, we are extremely impressed with our sons vibrant teacher. He is thrilled to come to school and he is more willing to learn. Thank you to Ms. Moas for making our school year fun and a smooth transition. We are blessed :)

I thought this would be a fantastic school, and for the most part, the staff is great. THE LEADERSHIP Is utterly and rediculously snobbish, insensitive and bossy. If your child has special needs or any thing that could be considered less than perfect, this principal will not want you there and he will be relentless untill you transfer your child elsewhere. My child was singled out, targeted, labeled as trouble, and wound up in severe emotional distress due to the bias against my child by the administration here. It nearly caused a lawsuit. Like I said, I live in this neighborhood and it is a great school if you have enough money and your child is perfect enough. So unimpressed. The environment almost ruined my child who has more than enough challenges without being threatened and treated poorly by adults. It was sad to witness a wonderful staff who were silenced, instructed not to speak to me, etc because of the principal.

This is a great school. My son has come very far academically. I almost feel like he is in a private school. I love that they have to wear uniforms and are very accountable for their actions.

My husband and I are very pleased with the education that our child is receiving at Lamping. This year is off to a great start with Mr. Knudson as our teacher. His humor and challenging work has really inspired my son. He has never enjoyed school as much as he is this year!

Frank Lamping is by far the best school my children have attended. The community and parent involvement is amazing and I truly feel that the school cares about the education of the students. The school promotes college even at this level of education which I think is great. My child constantly praises her 2nd grade teacher, Mr. Rapp and she is much more responsive and willing to learn than I have ever seen.

You've hit GOLD if your children are able to attend Lamping. Although the schools here will never compete with high-tax east coast districts, Lamping is the best in Vegas. I'm not sure what will happen now that there is a new Principal, but the roots of Lamping are very strong, the surrounding community is supportive.

This is an excellent school. Our daughters are very happy and challenged daily. Our only complaint is the homework loads can be excessive, and finding parking during school events.

Frank Lamping Elem.is an outstanding school. This is a top rated school that has teachers and a administration that really cares about their students future. My dauther starts this year and I have some concerns about 1. Swine Flu procedures not being installed 2. Number of students in a class room. (fire standards) With students being this close in a class room and the outbreak of Flu this season we need to be proactive and take steps to prevent any outbreaks.

I have my 2 kids going to this school since past 2 years. Undoubtedly Lamping is one of the best schools in the area. However, i feel that there are a few areas where the school could still reach higher standards. Firstly, the extra-curricualr activties aren't as excellent as these could be. There is not much chlallenge offered in the programs and an above average child has not much to gain from these. Also one of my kids is in the gifted program at the school, but the program is more of an enrichment one and again lacks challenge and motivation to rise above and do something unique. My child also did not gain much in terms of learning at school as his teacher was not willing to go an extra mile. However, my younger kid's teacher in grade 1 was very forthcoming in bringing up with challenging stuff for kids.

We were zoned out of Lamping and boy do we miss it! It is true that there is a bit os a 'status' that comes along with this school, as most of the areas surrounding it are higher demographic, however it was never a problem and my children excelled here and absolutely loved it! We are so sad that we were zoned out, and not nearly as happy with the quality of education, teachers, leadership, and family interaction and involvement as what we had at Lamping with our new school Glenn Taylor. We are looking into private schools and have even thought about moving again to end up back in Lamping district even though we would lose money on the home we just purchased a little over a year ago.

My son attends this school. He is not an excellerated studant and seems to have some trouble learning. I feel that he is being swept under the rug. This school does seems to focus on the positive, it is true. I worry that they try to skim over the negatives so that they will not impose on their reputation. I am trying to work with my child and help him catch up but I feel that I need more help from the school and teachers. The school has many fun activties for the children and the staff and parents have a great spirit about them but I believe that there needs to be more focus on the basics. This school is very crowded and has a few safty issues also.

The school has great parents and teachers. I believe in their kindness. I believe that they need to focus more in that direction and less in the need to be number 1. The school has enough thrills and needs to work on teaching the individual child. Science is great but they need to work on the basics. The Pricipal seems to be working on not being so preoccupied but has a way to go. The dress code does need to be enforced for these mothers. It is crazy what they wear and the children do notice the low cut tops, tight jeans and short skirts.

My children are doing great in school. They have good teachers and I am pleased. I do agree that the principal does not return calls and seems to favor 'certain' teachers and parents. I also feel that this school puts to much importance on getting more more more. I am concernd that I the cloths that the mothers who volenteer wear. I believe that they should have to be dressed according to CCSD dress code. They come to volenteer in such low cut tops and short little skirts , I believe this is a distraction and in poor taste. I do believe that the parent involvment is what makes this the school that it is. It does seem that their is quite a bit put on 'social status' between the children, that worries me. I do not want my children to think that they are better or less than others.

As a parent with two lucky children who have been fortunate enough to have been students at this wonderful school, I have to say that I think there are a lot of parents who have simply become SPOILED at Lamping. They really do not know how good they have it. The staff at Lamping is the best you will find. The teachers do not make any more money than other teachers elsewhere in the district, but at Lamping, the level of professionalism is simply UNMATCHED. The principal is a leader of the highets caliber, as I have witnessed first-hand for nearly five years. As an involved parent (of average middle-class standing mind you), I see and appreciate the first-classs learning environment that he has created here.

I believe that this school has simply gone down hill. Even after zone changes it is over crowded and the Principal does not seem to have the interest in the studants at all anymore. The school has a Science Center that is impressive. It seems to be very over rated in my opinion. The studants are pushed to excell (which mine do) but the children who can not keep up are swept under the rug and looked down upon by others. The principal also does not like to have contact with parents. I believe that this school has been over rated.

We have been so blessed this year with a fabulous 1st grade teacher!! However, we had issues with my daughters kindergarten year and the principal simply did not return any of our calls for about six weeks....and when he did, he was rude and obviously feeling put our by our questions. He is known to be quite arrogant and uncommunicative with the teachers who are not his pets. (read between the lines on this one....the younger and more attractive, the more the teacher is a pet.) The school is overcrowded but many kids have been rezoned to other schools for next year so that will help. We love the front office staff. They are truly outstanding in what they do. There are other schools in this area that have higher ratings and better reviews so someone new to the area may want to check those out before purchasing a home.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and is so excited to learn. She comes home with such wonderful stories and new things she teaches us too. I think Lamping fosters a great love for teaching and it shows in all the teachers, front office staff, even the wonderful maintenance people and cafeteria workers. My family was zoned out this year and we are moving back into the zone right across the street from the school to be sure that we are not rezoned again away from Lamping.

I have found it very hard to reach the teacher here. I have hired a Tudor, and even the Tudor and I finally after reaching the teacher do not feel that personalized care. Lamping is like a college campus, and we miss the personalized feelings of people knowing you and being involved. Thank god, for the Tudor, or I feel my daughter would have been left behind. They are slow to release track information, and the teachers are all young and seemingly uninterested in doing what is best for the children.

Lamping Elementary is an excellent elementary school. I have had both of by children attending and they were able to excel at this school. The Science Center and Accelrated Reader Programs are great learning toolds for the children. The teachers are wonderful and really care and the all-day Kindergarten Program is terrific. The parent involvement in this school is evident and makes a huge difference. The staff in the front office is very polite and helpful. The principal is a great leader, any parent would be lucky to send their child to Lamping Elementary. It has been great for our family and will be for yours too. The kids really enjoy going to this school and learning.

My daughter did very well at this school from K-5th grade They do great things to boost self esteem and make the children realize they are capable of doing anything. The heart and soul of Mr. Lamping makes the school a very unique family-like environment. There was no bullying and if there was, it was dealt with immediately. The teachers do their best and giving the shortage of teachers in the US, Lamping's teachers are what defines what a teacher should be. Mrs. Duchac is a blessing to that school and any child lucky enough to have her as a teacher. I have nothing but positive things to say about this school.

We moved to Henderson last year and have been thrilled with Lamping. The resources are phenomenal and the teachers for both of our sons have been excellent. The principle is visible, involved, and well respected. While there is a focus on science with the McCool Science Center, it is well balanced with language and arts.

Frank Lamping Elementary School is an excellent well rounded elementary school. The parent invlovement is a key reason. Parents work very hard with the administration and the teachers to achieve a high expectation of learning atmosphere. The principal has currently pushed science to a new level with getting a science center built. Many extra curricular activities are available to the students. I experienced only two down sides to this school. The first is how they assign the year round tracks and the ambiguity of uniforms. I am not a big believer in year round schools and I don't believe the assignment of tracks was fair. However the strength of the school still makes this an attractive place for a child to go to school

We moved to Henderson with our daughter in the summer of 2004 from the Miami area. She entered 3rd grade here at Lamping and we found her to be basically starting over on what she had already learned in 1st and 2nd grade in Miami. Additionally, we found the homework and curriculum lacking. We have transferred her to a private school this year, and are much happier with her progress.

Frank Lamping Elem.is one of the best schools around. The administration and the teachers are very involved with their students and parents. It shows in the behavior and attitude of their students. They are right on top of any student that may be falling behind or could use some extra help. They give encouragement. They also give aid in the belief of their students dreams. The school is in the process of building a science center that will encourage students to look at science in a whole new way. Hands on activities at this school help all in the understanding of many different subjects. This is a top rated school that has teachers and a administration that really cares about their students future.

My son is currently in the 2nd grade at Lamping. We moved here in the summer of 2004 and were very nervous about the public school system here. My son has had the best year at Lamping and is making straight A's. This year he has had a positive outlook on school and loves to learn. Lamping has surpassed our expectations. We love it!

I was always an advocate for private schooling and Lamping has made me feel otherwise. It's a top notch school. The programs are wonderful and the staff is incredible. Our principal is one polished man and loves his kids. My son wakes up every morning with a smile on his face. Lamping is A plus in my book.
