All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I 100% agree with what some of my fellow parents has stated. The office staff is rude and so are some of the lunch room aides, who, on one occasion as told my daughter to SHUT UP! The school has gone through at least 4 principles. The one time there was a mix up with my child being picked up and I was told that she had to pick her child and that my child would be in some room. She stated that no one will hear the buzzer and that he had to knock until some one answered the door. I was appalled that they had no protocol for this. I feel that for some that work for the school; lacks respect for the parents.

This school needs to be shut down, or the district needs to seriously start to inquire about what is going on there. The staff are rude to parents and they do not put the children first. I fought hard to get my son removed from this school and thank god that I did. He is now doing great in another school within the district. This school is on the borderline of the Hamilton/Trenton city line, and I feel the township treats the school as if it were a Trenton city school instead of a Hamilton Township School. The district does not care about the residents and children in this school because it is not in the more affluent section of Hamilton Township. This is really a shame because the children and parents in this area of the township deserve better.

This school is a mess. The parents do not volunteer and there is a serious lack of communication between the rude office staff and parents. My daughter has a physical disability that is continually ignored and instead we are harassed about her attendance. This school is under fire and they choose to pick on the good students versus fixing their issues. out of the 5 yrs my daughter has attended 2 teachers have cause her depression and deem highly unqualified to teach. Currently seeking a lawyer in education law to help assist us with several serious issues we are having.

Children receive little or no remedial help when struggling. This school has a history of holding children back, rather than providing interventions to assist them with areas of difficulty. Child study team turns down students that other schools would easily classify and accept. I've never seen anything like it. Long time teachers seem "broken" and new teachers are quick to beg for a transfer, because of the forced peer "ignore learning problem, treat a discipline problem" atmosphere. An eduction report suggested this school be shut down, along with Greenwood school, and hopefully this will happen soon.

My wife and I are impressed with Lalor School, its caring staff and their principal, Mr. Morris. My son participates in the school orchestra, is in the gifted & talented program and shares a 3rd grade classroom with hard-working peers. Back to School Night earlier this year was well-attended; the Lalor PTA, Mr. Morris and my son's teacher were very informative. We are very happy with our child's academic performance this year. Make sure your child is in school to do their work, because the principal and his teachers encourage accountability and responsibility.

We moved and my oldest daughter transfer from catholic school to Lalor last year. She went from being reffered for assistance for dyslexia to an honor student. The teaching staff is very involved with the childrens' education more on a personal level rather than a classroom level. She is now excelling in acedemics, playing violin and has many new friends at Lalor.
