We are mid year transfers and have not had a good experience so far. The teachers only seem to focus on the bad or wrong in your child I haven't heard one good thing from either teacher so far. They are teaching common core math even though they say they are. If your child is struggling don't expect them to get extra help. Teacher has snappy attitudes when parent ask questions. I have yet to see the administration in their role. I feel they should have been meeting all the parents that also transferred in mid year. I have no idea who the principal is and only know who the Vice is because of her daughter. I was looking forward to my children attending this school after moving from one of the worst school districts in the nation but we are now looking at other elementary schools in the area.
This school has been wonderful from the start! I am so thankful for the friendly staff and teachers! They have lots of opportunities for the kids to be hands on and get involved with the community and school.
I can honestly say this school caters to students who fit there "agenda"... If a student needs the slightest bit of extra help, you might as well forget it! This school is clicky, and it will always be that way.. and that's fine! however my Children will not be attending next year for this reason alone!
I am overall pleased with the curriculum in this school . This is my child's second year and she loves it!! However, I must say that the administrative staff isn't friendly. The teachers are great though!!!
This is an average school intent on producing average achieving students. Don't expect help if your child is above or below their average tract. They are so concerned with narrowing the achievment gap on their test scores that they go out of their way to keep high performing students from reaching their full potential. As for students with learning problems, the school is so intent on not labeling students that they will not address learning disabilities.
LES is a wonderful environment for children. My daughter began there in 3rd grade after moving from another state - she was welcomed and loved it from the start! Her teachers were all wonderful, devoted educators whose main focus was ensuring the success of each child dependent on their needs. My daughter began middle school this year and I feel that LES prepared her very well. Thumbs up!
