My sons came here from Philadelphia public schools. My one son is autistic. He's in 5th grade and started at a 2nd grade math level. He was given special instruction and made it up two whole levels. The special ed teachers here are phenomenal. This school made such a positive impact on him. My other son in 2nd grade uses to cry daily when we left for school. Now he runs to the bus. Wonderful school with small classes and teachers who still care.

This is a great school, no problems in the past few years and things seem to be going well. I have no complaints!

My daughter has been a student at Lilley for over 5 years and she loves her school and the teachers, administrators, nurse, office staff and the librarian. She has come along way. When she needed help in reading the school helped her with excellent staff.

Administration, many teachers and commitment to students is poor. The administrators act as if they are doing you a favor by providing your children with the attention they need to achieve. If you want your child to develop intellectually ... run. Looking for someone to obey orders and arbitrary rules, this is the place to be. The school leadership is especially bad. My children were fortunate to have left this school ... I would have homeschooled had I not had other choices.

I have worked in schools and I have not seen the personal care that JW Lilley shows their students . They have the traditional teacher with the newest techniques available to them . The great thing is , they use what they have to make our kids motivated to see , communicate and divouge into succusfull task which provides them with reasoning skills that make you stop and say where did they get that from? The Socialism of the children is quite remarkable and even though ' Kids will be kids ' , they all know each other and actually speak when out and about. They even go to church together and if they don't go to church together , there are inviting each other to church functions or somewhere that is positive in nature and that is in spite of all of these new video games !

The programs are good but I don't feel that the kids who need to be in specific 'extra' programs are always put into the ones they deserve or need to be in.

I would like comment on my son's teacher and the safety of the school. I think that she does a great job teaching him. He is reading very well and does very well in math. I feel so comfortable knowing that my son will be safe in school. I noticed that James W. Lilley has cameras at almost every hall way.
