My son is in the developmental learning class. My son has a lot of different needs. The staff who worked with him in his class are very compassionate and did a great job taking care of my son for the past 3 years! I can not say Thank you enough to Teacher Jon. My son has has come so far! We are so sad to be moving on. The Lamb DLC was a great class. We will always cherish our time at Lamb elementary :)

a fun place to learn. The kindergarten and first grade teachers are excellent! I haven't had the chance to meet upper grade teachers yet.

Great School. My child is in the DLC classroom. Teacher Jon Bashor is wonderful! My Kido learned soooo much! Teacher Jon is always doing innovative things in class. The entire school is warm and very excepting of my child. I wish all my kids could go to school here!

This is our fourth year at Lamb. I have had nothing but positive experiences. Contrary to what other parents are saying, I find the staff to be warm-hearted, giving individuals. The principal does a wonderful job of interacting with faculty, parents, and most importantly, our children. We will be entering into our fifth year there, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of education and the safety that IS Lamb Elementary School. There are many, many opportunities for our children to grow and succeed. There is a wonderful program for accelerated readers (AR), there is a TAG program, and there are absolutely no language barriers. Spanish speaking students will read fluently in spanish and english by the end of second grade. I am speaking for many other parents involved at Lamb when I say that this is truly a wonderful place for our children to be.

My son attended Lamb for first grade. I was informed that there was no TAG program for kids, no advanced reading class, no extra-challenging work for him. If you have a gifted kid, reconsider sending him or her to Lamb.

Had two children attend this school. We pulled our son out this year as last year his education was wasted...he had a bad teacher that was a grump the entire year...no fun at all and he didnt' want to attend anymore. That wasn't normal for him. Overall a great school but when it comes to issues with teachers they are slow to act and want you to 'wait it out'....instead of being quick to act and doing what's best for the child.

My son has started school at Lamb and really loves it. The principal and the staff are very dedicated to the kids, making the environment warm and welcoming. My main complaints are that his classroom is racially polarized--the Hispanic kids are taught and speak to each other in Spanish. The other children are taught in English. All this creates is two cliques within the same classroom that aren't able to communicate with each other. The other thing I wish would change is that there are no holiday observances. Halloween costumes weren't allowed and there were no parties before Christmas/Winter break or Halloween. My son doesn't know any better or mind, but I do.

My son go's to the special needs classroom. He is autistic and Debbie is one of his teachers. All the teachers at this classroom are very wonderful people and also the teachers aids. [My son] has came so far in his development skills because of these great teachers.I really don't know what I would have done without their help.I could never thank these people enough for their loving kindness to my son.Somedays [my son] comes home and it seems like he is talking better,smarter and developing so much better than ever before!! I can't believe the changes he has gone through.Thank you so much to Debbie and all the staff at lamb school! We would have never gotten this far.
