I have two children attending LCS, 3rd grade and Kindergarten. We've been delighted with all teachers we've been assiged at LCS and the principal and assistant principal are excellent. I feel my children are recieving a high quaility academic education as well as a good grounding in principles and respect for others. I highly recommend LCS.

Voted School of Character for the third year!! Go LCS! You don't find many schools that teach how to be a decent human being and that is something this school takes with great pride, as do all the schools in the district.

Boasting 102 years, yet modern in its outlook, this school is truly fabulous! My kindergartner's day in school revolves around Ms. Mastrian, a phenomenal teacher who finds creative ways to bring knowledge to children. This school nurtures a culture of excellence in academics, social skills and sports and games! My seventh grader who also went to this school and excelled at Contintal Math League, Science and English endorses that this school is as good as any can be. As parents we are confident that the school with its wealth of experience is enriching our community on an ongoing basis. Keep up the good 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.
