My son attended LPES for three years and then we moved. We really miss this school. From the principal to the teachers. I give this school a 10+. We are in the Monmouth County school district now, and there is no family unity here. It's a very aloof environment. All they expect are donations from the parents. LPES is a traditonal and each teacher genuinely cares about their students. We sure miss Ms. Gialanella! She was the eptiome of a perfect teacher. We miss you tremendously.

School is very good. The only negative I have is that the classes are overcrowded. My daughter is in second grade and because her class has 25 or more students she can't get the extra help needed. The principal is wonderful, she is very involved. I would prefer more structure in my daughter's second grade class.

The teachers are great. They also have teachers that help the students that are having trouble in different subjects.

The district has a fabulous KITES program for children with a mild autism diagnosis. The current teacher, Ms. Capra, is very involved with the children and parents on a daily & weekly basis. She has none wonders for my son.

I would give LPES 5 stars. The teachers are all very dedicated and caring educators, and the parents are equally involved. It is an exciting place for young people to start their education and love of learning.

I currently have four children in the Lincoln Park school system, 2 in elementary and 2 in middle. If you have children with any kind of special needs or learning disabilities, this is where you want your children to be.

Parents are allowed to be too invoved in the teacher selection process. For example, most parents want their child to be in the school play, so for second grade they all request 'Mrs. Upham'. If you're 'pushy' enough or 'liked' enough, your wish will be granted. I don't think that it's fair that parents should 'choose' which teacher their child should have. This is not private school. It is unfair for working parents and their kids who are unable to be constantly involved in school activities (and do not know about this 'request' procedure). I think that unless there's a major 'personality conflict' teachers should be assigned by the principal and no requests should be taken. This will make it fair for all students not only to be involved in the 'plays' but also to get the so-called 'best teachers'. Although, I do believe that this school is gifted with many talented and professional teachers. I've been very happy with all the teachers my child has had the honor of having. You just get tired of constantly seeing the same kids with the same teachers and of hearing the same parents brag about how 'they got who they wanted and she/he is the best'.

The children are all made to feel special and important. The curriculum challenges and stimulates all levels. If you are fortunate enough to get into Mrs. Upham's 2nd grade you will experience a play that is almost like an off broadway show! Teachers are warm and caring and communicate with you well. My daughter is entering her 4th year (3rd grade) and my son is entering kindergarten and we are so pleased.
