My daughter is in the pre-school disabled program at LOP, and the school is amazing. She has made huge strides since starting, and the teachers really care. The principal takes the time to get to know all of the students names, and that says a lot as well. I am very happy to have her in such a wonderful environment.

My son has attended Land of Pines for four years. Since Mr. Thompson has left, standardized test scores have risen but overall education has declined. After all the good reviews I was so disappointed in the quality of his education. His class spent over six weeks working on testing packets at the exclusion of all other academics. If Land of Pines is the best we have to offer our children in regards to public school, then this Nation is in serious trouble.

I went to Land O' Pines for 1st through 6th grade. I am now a college graduate. I loved this school, the teachers, and especially the Pricipal, Mr. Thompson. My teachers still remember me and so does he. It is wonderful to have that kind of a connection and I had a wonderful education. - D.K. '95

My son has attented LOP for 3 years. He loved being in LOP. I loved the staff their. They all made me feel like my son was always safe. The best thing is that one day I brought my nephew who is 18 years old to parents day with me. Mr Thompson and Mrs. Cuccia actually remembered my nephew. That alone says alot. My son and I miss everyone very dearly. Keep up the great work.

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.
