Hi i'm a former student of Lancaster Elementry. I just have to say that this is one of the best schools i have ever been to. The principal Mr. Parliglaro is one of the best principals in the universe. This school is fun and the teachers are very nice and strict but not to stict, just right. l would like to reccomend this school to anybody out there.
