This school was the best school I have ever had!! The principal is amazing and she takes care in hiring the teachers. The teachers genuinely care about all the students and want them to excel in life but have fun in school! We were also taught since Kindergarten to be kind and caring to everyone. LES was an NJ School of Character for many years in a row thanks to their amazing character ed program. The school also has a beautiful garden which the students fully take part in it. The students that came from LES and are now in the Intermediate and Middle schools hardly ever get into trouble. I would send my child to LES, because it is an amazing place for a child to grow up and learn!

LES is a wonderful school! We have lived in Lawrence for 8 + years. We love the elementary school. The school has a Gifted and Talented program starting from 1 st grade. Dynamic learning environment. Caring teachers and staff.

We are now into our 3rd grade year at LES. It is the BEST school we have ever experienced. My older children tried private Day Schools, Christian schools as well as other public schools and we never got the education that my youngest daughter received. We are at home at LES and will be very sad to graduate. Thank You, Mrs. Bronston and the wonderful teahers at LES.

This school exceeded all our our expectations. We transferred here from private school and our son prefers LES! The admin is amazingly accomodating, the teachers are enthusiastic and engaged, parents are involved without being competitve. It is perfect on an academic and social level. Rutger's School of Character.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
