Linglebach is great my son's kindergarten class is past other local kindergarten classes at different schools. I love that his school has something called the 100 book challenge. My kindegardner has already read over 140 books at his reading level. Also this school participates in the Fast program.Fast stands for Families and Schools Together. It's a great after school program that promotes strong family involvement with education.
THIS IS ONE OF THE BETTER PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN PHILADELPHIA. MY TWO GIRLS GRADES 2 AND 5 GO TO THIS SCHOOL AND THEY ARE CHALLENGED IN LEARNING BUT THE LUNCH PROGRAM AND STUDENT AIDE IS VERY UNACCOMMODATING. THE STUDENTS CAN NOT ENTER THE BUILDING UNTIL 815 EVEN IF ITS FREEZING OUT. THE SCHOOL BUS DROPS OFF CHILDREN AT 730 OR 8 AND THEY HAVE TO STAND OUTSIDE. THE SCHOOL ALSO HAS RUN OUT OF LUNCH FOR THE CHILDREN MULTIPLE TIMES AS WELL. IF YOU DON'T DROP UR CHILDREN BEFORE 830 AND PROVIDE THEM LUNCH. THEY WILL BE FINE.
My youngest daughter attended beginning in Kindergarten and will be graduating this year. My oldest daughter attended from k-5 from 1994-1999. The education my oldest daughter received was much better than that of my younges. Even though my youngest gets all A's and B's I really don't feel that she is prepared for a higher achieving magnet high school. She will either attend E&S or Hill Freedman in September and we have a lot of work to do this summer to get her up to speed. Lingelbach has proved to be a safe, friendly, and nurturing environment which is very important. I am grateful to the staff for loving, caring , and educating my children. Thank you.
I have two children at Lingelbach this year and I've been quite pleased with the education they've gotten. My kids come home talking about social studies and science facts that I didn't expect them to encounter for years. All of the staff I've encountered has been caring and competent, and the principal is extremely accessible to discuss any concerns one might have.
im a 8 grade student from lingelbach and it rocks and all the kids and staff is nice and understanding
This is a nice school. Other than the low funds, its very nice for the budget they have! I have to admit, its really great for the younger kids. But when it hits seventh grade... a lot of the eight and seventh graders are really mean. Like there is a lot of teasing and bullying and things. I would recommend this school if your children are in sixth and below... but if they're higher, please find a different school. But for the most part... the staff are nice to the students. I like this school, you have to be tough though!
This is a decent neighborhood school that more smart families in Germantown should take advantage of. This school can't reach its potential because the better families are opting for many of the areas expensive elite schools. Perhaps the recession will cause us to discover jewels in our own area. This school is led by a strong principal who may provide strong debate but will consider and implement new ideas. I'm a tough, strong parent, but she's earned my respect. We homeschooled our kid 2 years and he also did 6 years at Lingelbach. He is super smart and very different but felt at home at this school. Now he's at a prestigious public high school doing excellent. You can always supplement your child's education at home while boosting the status of your neighborhood school. This is cheaper and will boost our property values.
Respect & acceptance of many different cultures in this school. Lots of caught doing good rewards for the children. Lots of acknowledgement for hard work & parental involvement. Principal is OUTSTANDING in her no tolerance for bullying. She even PLAYS (supervises) the children @ recess! Excellent Home & School. SAFE enviornment for children. Foreign Language instruction, newer technology! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! We have 2 children there. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else in NW region!
Excellent school, my 4 children attend this school... Principal is great,open door policy very approachable. Teachers are professional,and parent friendly. Students are respectful.
I just wish the school had more extracurricular activities for the lower level grades such as different sports or music class. Besides for that I actually love the school. You have some teachers who are great and some that are not so great. But I guess you can get that anywhere.
My son went here for kindergarten. I like the school a lot. This being such a good school was one of the determining factors on whether to move or not. All the staff is very much involved from the beginning of the day until the end of the day. I can't wait until my son enters first grade to see what this year is going to be like. The only downfall is that they do not offer many extracurricular activities, or it could be my son is in to low of a grade to participate in them so I am not aware of them. But the staff more then make up for it with the quality education that is offered. I was very nervous for my son to enter kindergarten, I am in no shape worried about him entering the first grade at Lingelbach. Keep up the good work staff.
Lingelbach could really be a dynamic public school. However, it is poorly run. This school could really soar, if it had the proper leadership (i.e., someone that could relate to the children and help them grow intellecutally and culturally). The leadership at this school now simply does not have the savvy or mindset to run the school the way it could be run.
