This school is great! The principal works long hours to ensure every kid has what they need. The booster club is full of great caring parents that are very fun and inviting. My children have every sweet teachers that really go the extra mile. And as if that wasn't enough the custodian is the coolest lady I have ever met and uses her own time and money to reward the kids who help in the cafeteria.

My kid joined Lenox in Sep 2013. It is a nice school which not only teaches it's students academics, but also values. Their motto Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectable says it all! My kid enjoys going to school, likes his teacher and feel good about getting recognized when he does a good job with this neat little pride ticket system they have. The Principal is very dedicated and professional. They have some good after school programs. Also, Lenox is a drop off location for terracycle. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On a more personal note, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the gentleman for giving me his seat at the kids musical performance today!

Very disorganized. I did not recieve any papers on who the teacher was, or what the classroom number was. On the first day coming home from school the bus was 30 minutes late! When I called transportation to see where my daughter was, their excuse was that it was the first day and it's to be expected. 10 minutes late is, in my opinion, acceptable. Not 30 mminutes. The staff would much rather hang up on you than apologize.

Small neighborhood schools are the BEST. We thought about putting our children in a private school but after seeing all the programs they offer and the quality of the teachers and principal, why would we pay for something that is farther away and maybe not as good. We love Lenox and love that all of our children's friends live in the neighborhood and now can walk home with them. They offer Art Night, Science Fair, Carnival and numerous other great enrichment events. Very very happy with Lenox! Submitted by a parent

Lenox is a fantastic school. The teachers are top notch, the principal is amazing, and the booster club works very hard to provide everything the students and staff need. People will always find something to complain about. We've been at Lenox for 7 years and not one time have I ever been turned away as a volunteer. Volunteers are vital to Lenox and everyone is welcome and encouraged to jump in and help out in any way they can. Parents can go eat lunch with their child at any time, chaparone field trips, teach art to a class, make photocopies for teachers, etc., etc. To say parents are not welcome at school is completely untrue!

My daughter has attended Lenox Elementary for two years. She will be changing schools during the 2010-2011 school year due to us purchasing a home, however her time at Lenox has been enjoyable and she really does love it there. I would agree to the prior posts the the Booster club is a clique, but if you approach them they are welcoming and appreciate any parent involvement. The principal, Mr. Matsuo, is a huge blessing for this school. Never have I seen a principal so passionate about his staff, students, and parents. He is actively involved and knows every child by name. We're going to miss Lenox a great deal. I only pray that our new elementary will be just as great if not better. Remember a school is a school and there will always be a negative teacher, parent, etc. Don't allow minute negatives outay what this school offers.

I am on this site looking to put my daughter in a different school. The teaching staff is not friendly or helpful. My daughter was new to Oregon and Lenox this year. The teachers have favorites and have not helped my daughter or me navigate her successfully through this painful process. The booster club and parents are clique-ish as well. Overall not a warm, friendly, or genuine environment.

Lenox is a great public elementary school with enthusiastic teachers and high parental involvement. The only week area is the Booster Club. It is a clique group that run it and is discouraging for new parents that may want to become more involved. Fund raising could be more successful if the group was more inviting.

My children will be at this school this year. Office staff is very friendly and the kindergarten teacher (the only teacher I've encountered thus far) is absolutely outstanding! As for Booster Club...went to one meeting and did not feel very welcome. Overall a place my kids enjoy, and I feel great about sending them there.
