THE PARKING SITUATION IS NOT GOOD. PLUS ALL KIDS HAVE TO WAIT OUTSIDE EVEN WHEN IT IS COLD OUTSIDE. THAT IS VERY BAD AND INCONVENIENT
This is a great school. Staff is vvery nice and school is always trying to make school are fun place to be for the kids.
This school is great, so are the teacher and staff.There special needs classes are the best.When my daughter started there we found out she had a learning disablities.She got the help she need...With a month my daughter could write her name and she knew how to write and abcs and at the end how the school year she could read and do math.I owe thanks to the teacher and staff there
I give this school a five star ratingmy child attends this school and it is great there!!!
My daughter is very happy at this school. However, I would like to see clubs offered for kindergarten as well as more after-school care for young children. Consequently, Principal Hill is doing a great job as the new principal!
Loesche Elementary is a very good school, in fact one of the best in philadelphia. The school is in a diverse area in the greater NE Philadelphia. The teachers are great. The principle cares very much about the school and it's students.
I love this school! My autistic daughter went hear from 1st to 5th and they were so great about talking my other daughter 23 months younger who isn't autistic! She graduated last year and my son started kindergarden with Mrs.Firestone,the greatest teacher on the planet, this september. Loesche is not the school in my neighborhood but they loved my kids so much and I loved them that they let me bring me son there! I should be sending my son to Fitzpatrick but it was so big and scary looking while loesche is like home! I'm just so excited to be part of the loesche community again!
I have two children in this school. When I first saw the school from the outside, including the playground, I was disgusted. However, it didn't take me long to realize that inside this school was one of the best, most caring teachers and staff, in particular, the principal, dr. K. (Sorry, I can't spell his last name and almost everyone calls him dr. K!) test scores are well above average against many other ne phila schools and the security is tight but not to the point of making it obvious. Do yousrelf a favor and get to know the staff and principal. Go to parent/teacher meetings. Be involved. They are also very open to suggestions and react quickly with issues of concern. For a philly school, this one is great!
This school is absolutely delightful! The teachers are hardworking, enthusiastic,creative, and challenging! The principal, Dr. Kowalkowski, is TOPS! The teachers work together. The school is very cohesive. It is like the Bloomingdales of schools! Maybe this is why we made AYP two years in a row!
