I LOVE THIS SCHOOL.My daughter was a transfer from a catholic school in Philadelphia and now attends Loring Fleming. She has learned so much and her grades are much better. The teachers and staff are helpful and professional. She loves it here. The rating should definitely be higher!

I'm surprised with the rating because this school is a breath of fresh air. My son is in Kindergarden and it's one of the most important grades and he was taught so much. My son loves and enjoys assisting and it saddens me we are relocating and Loring Fleming will no longer be his zone school. The experience has been fabulous for both starting from the Administration, Teacher and Principal. Great School!!!!!

I can honestly say that Loring-Flemming has been proactive in regards to my son's education. The teachers, staff, and the principal are outgoing and communicative about all activities and academics regarding my son. I love this school because of all the important people noted in the previous sentence who exhibit sincere passion and concern for all of their students.

My daughter transferred to Loring Flemming in 3rd grade(from another school with a higher rating on this website). I was so pleased with the way teachers and administrators handled behaviors. Any type of bullying was nipped in the bud right away and children were taught how to handle disagreements. My child's self esteem skyrocketed and her emotional were always taken into consideration. She grew to love all of her teachers and keeps in contact with them whenever she can. Parents were always encouraged to be active in every aspect of the school. I'm very sorry we had to leave the Loring Flemming family.

This is an incredible school with administrators and teachers who really care. The children really enjoy coming to school each day and you get a warm feeling throughout the hallways. The staff is always willing to give a helping hand to those in need. The teachers really cater to the needs of each student as much as they possibly can.

Going to Loring Flemming was an absolute pleassure! I enjoyed it so much. The teachers, janitors, lunch ladies, everyone there, is so polite and well-mannered. I sure will miss it when I go next door to Glen Landing.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
