I like some things about the school, but there are some major disappointments as well. If you're looking for a child/parent friendly school, this may not be the choice for you. In my experience with dealing with child/parent/teacher issues, the administration(principal/disciplinarian) has always sided with the teacher.
I love this school. My son has Mrs. Wallover, who I think is the best kindergarten teacher they have this year. Mrs. Jacoby is a great support in the class. My son has also received speech therapy with wonderful results so far thanks to Mrs. Caniglia. I am so thankful that the teachers are so caring and compassionate. My only concern would be how some of the older students treat the staff, and the lack of discipline. I do believe these things are being addressed and will get better. I would like to thank all the staff for the hard work they do.
I absolutely love School Lane, The only flaw that I have noticed is the lack of disciplinary action in the case of a child bullying or disrupting other class mates. I truly hope this can be fixed before this wonderful learning facility is ruined by the lack of consequences that unruly students face. This is unfair to the rest and majority of students who are there to learn and enjoy the school environment. I really like the principle however I feel that she is the one to make the difference and so far has not done so.
I only have good things to say about School Lane. My daughter's teacher Mrs. Shuster, who she has had for both kindergarden and first grade has been wonderful. Mrs Beth Shuster has such dedication to the children, her teaching is great and when you stop in the children are always polite and well behaved. She has alot of patience and makes every child feel special, she shows interest in them and the children love her. I hope the up coming years are just as great at School Lane. The Walsh Family
School Lane started out great it had a great staff and a very dedicated principle. Sadly the board replaced that principle due to personal issues. The school has been consistantly going down hill since. The lack of discipline is so frustrating,I have seen a kid kick another kid in the groin so hard that he fainted and was foaming at the mouth,nothing was done. This kid was back in school the next day. Most of the great original staff was either not invited back or just left due to all the changes and now we are left with some teachers who have little to no patience or are just there until something better comes along. Almost all the original families that started with the school have pulled their children and put them back in public school. The principle is locked in her office 24/7. Maybe if she opened the the door she would know whats going on!
Herbert Hoover School in Langhorne is a great school. The teachers (at least the ones I have dealt with) were great. They have an awsome PTO and they work so hard for this school. We have never had a problem and I would say the extracurricular activities outshine other schools 10 fold.
This is the best school my children have been to. My daugther in 7th grade switched in 5th grade from Saint Anselm's and enjoys it and learns much more. My son is in kindergarten and is giving the special atention he needs. Their grades are above averange from the learning they get. One of my daughter's daily subjects is spanish which is remarkable. Some of their special subjects are music where they learn how to play the keyboard, fine arts,and P.E. They also have a large computer lab and wonderful libary. This is the greatest school a kid can go to.
The Middle School Curriculum is lacking basic background to prepare students for high school. Teachers are typically young and inexperienced with little classroom management skills. My children have transferred out, I expected them to graduate from School Lane prepared to face the next steps.
I really like the enviroment of School Lane. I think the teachers really care about the student's progress. However, there is quite a bit of problem students that disrupt the classroom making it hard for serious students to focus.
This school is wonderful the staff is excellent and welcoming to all students old and new. The children are respectful to each other and welcoming to new students. I know this first hand because my child started in mid school year and she felt very comfortable. everyone accepted her with no problems. I am very happy that my children go to this wonderful school.
