This school needs to get it together at the front desk as a step parent that quite often pucks up my step, i am so sick of being bombarded with phone calls to the parent to see if its ok after the parents have already sent a note. Every week its a battle LEARN MY NAME AND MY FACE. I can appreciate the security but its a broke system.

My daughter has gone to several schools throughout Cumberland county and the us because of my husband being military. This was by far the worst school we have ever been to. The turnover for teachers is high and the principal is awful. I have never experienced such a rude professional in my life. I don't understand how she is still employed as an educator. My daughters teacher was excellent in 2nd grade but at the end of the year she left. Her 3rd grade teacher was amazing also but again by year end she was also gone. I hear they have a new principal this year so maybe things will be better but if you hear that Tammy Holland is your child's principal run to another school

School location is only great perk. Rude uneducated office support staff. Teachers are educated but the principal is very rude and is not very easy to communicate with. The homework is over the top and tests are extreme. She has favorites and seems to be agressive I hope they switch the staff for my childrens upcoming years or I may have to switch schools. I think the leadership should be more diverse.

The leadership at this school is horrible. The principal is rude and very unprofessional. She talks down to students, parents, and teachers. She has on several occasions given me a rude look, blown of my concerns or made a rude comment to me. The students in 3rd,4th, and 5th grade are put under an incredible (sometimes unrealistic) amount of daily pressure to pass their end of grade testing. The Principal only rewards students who pass their E.O.G test and does little to nothing to celebrate students who have made large growth and progress. The leadership at this school has created an environment where students are feeling inadequate and hate school by the end of 5th grade. I would not recommend this school to anyone!

I am very happy with Lucile Souders! I was worried when we first moved here and reading all the reviews about the area and school. But that quickly changed once my daughter started school. The teachers, staff, and principle are FANTASTIC. It's nice to walk in and everyone knows your name as well as your child. The class size was perfect and there was a teachers assistant always there. My daughter was challenged mentally everyday. The homework was appropriate and since the teacher and I communicated at least twice a week, She offered to send more work home to add to the challenge. I can't wait for my son to start.

I absolutely LOVE this school.. My daughter started here when she was in pre-k and is in the second grade. The teachers take their time with the children. My daughter has learned so much here.. She is above average in reading and doing excellent in all other aspects. Thank you for being such a wonderful school. The principal is doing an outstanding job - from day one! I want to thank her and also the wonderful office staff who are always smiling and ready to help!

LS is not the best school in my opinion.Communication is horrible,and i have three kids in this school.From what i see the teachers don't work enough with the students...they need more staff.And every other week is about money,they are always asking for money and i see nothing of it.They also give the students too much home work.My kids walk in the door 20 minutes later they start on hw and don't finish til after 8,this makes kids dislike school.By that time it's time to get ready for bed.And there have been a couple of times i wanted to go up there and give a couple of teachers a few unpleasent words.But like i said thats my opinion.

LS is pretty good at the upper grades with really good teachers at the 3th to 5th grade levels. My major complaint is with communication to parents. VERY disorganized office and administration. The AG program is slow to get started and again information is hard to come by.

This is a push them through school. Due to the low level of parent (one-parent homes) involvement, children who can be taught at home are largely ignored in the class room. I can only speak to grades k-3 as I quickly moved my children out of the area.
