The send home a lot of homework, to make up for the lack of time spent on the subject material during class. They put the burden back on the parent to finish what they have started. Most of the time the child is over whelmed with homework that they don't understand. The teachers under grade six don't even have a degree....Check out the website on the careers section.
When we moved to Henderson I was dreading the reputation of the Las Vegas school system (maybe different from the Henderson USD, but I wasn't sure). So we began touring various private schools. A lot of them had what you might call "polish," but beneath that I didn't always see the heart. When we toured LMCA that was the first thing we saw. Now we've been at the school for three years and haven't had a single moment of regret. The heart is what shines brightest at this school, and now with a second compass there is a lot of polish too. The community is great and we've met and become friends with so many families. We haven't experienced any cliquishness which is also very impressive for a Christian school. If you haven't had a tour yet, you should!
The most important job that a teacher has is to make her students feel valued. My granddaughter's teacher failed. She had about 13 students and was the most disconnected and unaware teacher that I ever dealt with..We had high hopes for this school..Sad..
