I love Langtree! However, if you aren't ready for your kids to be challenged academically this school is not for you. My kindergartner is learning basic multiplication and was reading at a first grade level well before Christmas. They are challenged every single day. Do they have homework? Yes. Do they get actual grades on their assignments like the upper grades? Yes they do. Even the kinders have ceremonies and get awards for their academic achievments. Our teacher has very high expectations of the students and has achieved remarkable results. We've all had teachers we just didn't click with, which is possibly what happened for the parents who aren't happy. I hope they hang in there! We have an awesome teacher who will be greatly missed next year. I can't believe the things my child has learned in Kindergarten. They have fantastic after school programs (including free tutoring) and will start middle school sports in the fall! Go Lions!

We've been at this school since day one. We had great hopes for this school, even thought we were somewhat concerned that the parent organization (USA Charter Schools) has a less than positive reputation. Needless to say, we should have went with our original research. Our experience at Langtree has been less than stellar. As a professor, with a degree in education, I think I know enough to make a sound judgement on this school. Yes, it new and yes, there will be issues to work out (as there are with any school new or established.) But what I have observed (while volunteering in the classroom) is teaching that is indifferent, worksheets that resemble pure busy work and lack of communication from the administration. What does this school offer that any other public school in the area can't? I am yet to determine that.

We are very pleased with Langtree Charter Academy (LCA). Currently, we have a 4th grader in attendance & a kindergartner who'll begin attending in the fall of 2014 as a 1st grader. My son has always done well in school, but he's always been a bit reserved when it comes to class participation. I've noticed a big change in him this year since we took a blind leap pulling him out of an already top rated CMS elementary school & placing him in a first year charter school. He's more willing to volunteer answers. He raises his hand to participate in class discussions. This has also carried over in Cub Scouts & other extracurricular activities. Many who know him compliment his willingness to participate more. His teacher is phenomenal! The administration works hard to ensure they offer top notch academics to rival area private schools. These educators are dedicated to churning out high performing students. LCA is big on rewarding students & staff. They pride themselves in helping students that require extra assistance by offering free tutoring. Overall, I'm impressed. I am blessed to be among a caring community comprised of teachers, administrative leaders, & parents. Thanks LCA! Go Lions!

I love the way a parent is so concerned about a child's education that you pulled your child out of a private school, put them at LCA to save a buck, and are now moving them back to private. The reason your child is getting a poor education is you. You are not comparing apples to apples and it's 100 % clear, you have zero experience with any education offered around here. A charter school is not a a private school. Since I am a former CMS employee, I think I am qualified to say....Langtree is wonderful! My daughter is in 3rd grade and is completing 4th grade work. How do I know this? I made the copies. K classes are learning 5 times more than my child learned at CMS during her K year. I cried when I spent time in a K class this year. I wish my child had a K redo. I wouldn't change this year for anything! It was the best educational decision we ever made. For those of you non believers, how much time did you spend in your child's class this year? I bet the answer is zero.

Langtree has been great for my kids, 2nd and 3rd grade. Everyone is very close and and involved in the school, parental involvement is very big at Langtree and that's what makes it work, the school has been very good at listening to parents concerns ect and using that to make it better, my kids are doing very well and we are very happy about that. The year is almost over and we survived the small new school bumps in the road, pick up and drop off are a breeze. It's the first year, Rome wasn't built in a day! And I'm happy my Kindergartner will be starting at Langtree next school year!

We've not been at all impressed. We left a private school in hopes to receive similar quality education here. (And save tuition!) However, that has not been the case. Can't put a price on great education and we'll be returning to our previous school this fall. I am sure there are some great teachers here, but our kids (Kindergarten and third) are receiving less than average instruction, inconstant communication from teachers, etc.

We love this school! My son is in kindergarten and is reading at a first grade level. He loves going and is never bored. His teacher is very caring and great at motivating her students and pushing them to do their very best. The administration and staff have been wonderful and have worked hard to get everything running smoothly. We are so thankful for the opportunity to attend this wonderful school.

I luckily have been blessed to have 2 children enrolled. My kindergartener is learning things that my other son did not start learning until the end of first grade at a school that we really liked in Huntersville. I am amazed at the growth of my sons over this year. This is a fantastic school that will surely grow into one of the best schools in this region. They have over 1200 applicants for the lottery this upcoming year as word continues to spread about the success of this school. They are extremely organized and the teachers are outstanding. There is a real sense of community and pride in this school.

It would be interesting to learn from other parents at this school, what this schools offers with regards to a differentiated educational experience. If this school is using concepts that are more successful/effective than what we see in traditional public schools, then we should be empowering our state legislature to implement those same concepts into the traditional public schools so that more chidlren may benefit.

Langtree Charter is an AMAZING school! We cannot believe how quickly the school has tried to iron out the "new school" kinks and make it a fantastic environment for our children. We have two children in Langtree with a third entering next year. The extra help that they have offered to my son with reading has been off the charts - really I never knew we could expect this kind of support from a school. We are thrilled...love it...love it...love it!! To think that our children will be at this wonderful school K-12 is almost unbelieveable. THANK YOU LANGTREE!!!

Langtree has been a big disappointment for our family so far. My child is in 3rd grade....this is by far our worst experience in K-3. This fall, my child's teacher quit after 4 weeks, then had 2 substitutes for about 3 weeks each, followed by a new supposedly wonderful teacher who left after a few more weeks (maybe 5?). My child has learned little this year, and I feel like I am re-teaching everything at home. Several of her classmates have dropped out. We now have a new sub, with promise of a new wonderful teacher later this month. Communication from teachers and the school has been quite poor for us. I am aware of a few very good teachers and administrators at the school, but based on the high teacher and student turnover, there appears to be a pervasive disappointment. I'm pulling for Langtree, as I felt like it would be a great home for us, but not so sure now. We're hoping for big improvements in 2014!

This is a great school! I have noticed an academic improvement in both my children. My sixth grader always struggled with school and this is the first year he has performed well.

This is the second charter school our daughter has attended. She started in kindergarten and first grade at one that was so-so. She now attends Langtree. We cannot say enough about how awesome this school is. The teachers and staff are great. The communication is wonderful. Class sizes are perfect and the classes are everything we had hoped our daughter would have had at the first school. This reminds me of the private schools I attended growing up. We were very fortunate to get in and look forward to things to come. I have already recommended this to several people I work with that have kids. This school is awesome. Keep up the good work!! The only improvement I can think of is perhaps offer other foreign languages besides Spanish. We understand why you offer it, but many parents did not take this language when we were in school. I took French and was hoping my daughter would learn this as well so that we could do homework together. Hopefully other languages will be offered in the future, especially to the kids who are already fluent in this language due to the fact it is a first or second language in their homes.

My son is very happy at Langtree Charter. He is being challenged daily and can't wait for his science class. I have never been able to get him to talk about school before this one. It is so nice to not get "good" as a response to how school was, instead he actually tells me things he has done that day.

Langtree is brand new this year and we are amazed at how well the teachers and staff have teamed up to hit the ground running. Our daughter's grades are better than they have ever been, and she is excited about school. We owe that to the committed staff and teachers who add that extra individualized approach to teaching.

Langtree Charter Academy. Since it is a new school, still lots of improvements needed. Pick up and drop off needs a lot of improvements, some times is not safe for the kids to be walking thru the cars. Gym is a must!!!!

Langtree is a new school this year. Had rough patches in the beginning, but has worked out the kinks. My 2nd grader's teacher is down to earth and committed to keep him challenged and ahead. The teacher as well as the front office have been great with communication. Only complaints I would have right now is that the rooms are a little small, and that we need a gym. But, my son is so happy to go to school every day.

So happy to have my son at this school! Langtree is brand new this year and I am completely impressed at how fast they are up and running. The personalized attention my son gets is fantastic and the fact they tailer the lessons to his learning style is incredible. They also reteach concepts that the children did not understand to ensure they have learned the material. Glad our family is a Langtree family!

Langtree Charter School is one of the largest and great charter school in Mooresville. Assessments are performed periodically to determine how your child will learn best. Learning styles are established to tailor lesson plans to meet the needs of each student.Parents are given access to their children's personal information through a password-protected computer-based system that allows them to monitor their progress. Parents can monitor test scores, homework and attendance on a daily basis. children enjoy greater success in school when the adults they admire most take an interest in their education. Teachers, Staff and Studies were really good. It's was pleasure to have my kids study at this school. Thanks a lot once again!....

Langtree Charter Academy, thus far, has exceeded our expectations. Their curriculum is comprehensive, appropriately challenging, and appears to encompass accelerated learning philosophies. The teachers and staff are personable, professional, and fully committed to enhancing the learning experience of the students. Effective communication with parents is consistent, and multiple approaches are typically utilized on a daily basis. Langtree Charter is ethically structured and, under the leadership of its Principal, has noticeably begun to flourish. The schools extracurricular activities are plentiful, for such a short period of time since inception, and their emphasis on parental involvement, the reinforcement of moral values, and their commitment to excellence in education is encouraging.

We are thrilled and impressed with Langtree Charter's Leadership, teachers and staff. They are very knowledgeable and are quick to find solutions to whatever arises. They are kind, friendly and you can feel that they genuinely care about your concerns as well as each child individually. We have a 2nd and 6th grader that attend Langtree and they are doing very well. Instruction is taught, if the majority of the students do not have a good understanding of the subject, the lesson is taught over in a new way. If your goal is for your child to be challenged and to reach the next level with flying colors, and you live in the Lake Norman area, then this is the school for you. The Wilson family 9/24/13
