This is my child's first year of school. He started the year excited and love school. He is now half-way through kindergarten and cries because he doesn't want to go to school. This is not the kind of environment that promotes successful students.

I would like more information on the progress of my child and how to help him improve instead of a generic overview of the whole grade.

LSES is one of the greatest schools in Harnett County. Parent Involvement is up and the students and staff work very hard under the leadership of Linda Stewart. Scores have soared in the past seven years and most students are on grade level.

LSES does not have 50% Exceptional Children. It has a gifted program and students who are very high academically. Students are not identified at this school for disabilities. They are bused from other school districts simply because of the skilled staff and the location of the school - it is located in the hub of the county. Test scores are very high at LSES.

I have a special needs pre-school student at LSES. The reason this schools has such a high number of pupils with learning disabilities is because they are one of the few schools in Harnett County that are equipped to educate children with more needs. My child's teacher is great - and my child has made tremendous strides since he has attended. However, I am not impressed with the administration. It really bothers me that I am not allowed to observe my 3 year old. Apparently it is a school board ruling - but it is absurd! Especially when we are talking about 3 and 4 year olds where the parents and child could benefit from some of the things practiced in the classroom. Consistency and cooperation are imperative for special needs kids!

I think LSES is a wonderful school! Both of my children are doing well. The teachers are committed to teaching students.

After comparing this school to other elementary schools (within 10 miles) I feel that the fact that 50% of pupils are identified with learning disabilities is rather odd. I have come to the conclusion that the true purpose of identifying these pupils is for modifying end of grade test scores. If I had known these facts prior to my purchasing my home, I would have researched a school with more favorable outcomes.
