Excellent faculty and staff. Many opportunities to get involved in the school and classroom. Top notch education in a loving and welcoming environment. We love the LES community!

The Principal is what makes this school terrible. I heard so many good things about it before Mrs. Contich because Principal. She has threatened and yelled at parents even ones whom are volunteers and others with special needs.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Develops character: Disagree

Because the Principal is not honest nor fair herself. She wrote up a Kindergartner for pulling down his pants when he was threatened to do it. What the?

My child attended this school for four years. While the education they received seemed great, the children and their parents are the main reason I'm only giving this school two stars (and I'm being generous with the two stars). In the four years at Lipscomb, I've encountered one, maybe two parents that are generally nice and outgoing. The vast majority are the stereotypical Brentwood residents, which is disappointing to say. Closed off and elitist, they are incredibly unwelcoming of newcomers and this attitude trickles down to their children. Again, I realize it's unfair to lump all the kids together and say that they're all the same, but the majority of them are mirror images of their parents. My child never had any problems with bullying or making friends until attending Lipscomb and I'm thankful/grateful that those days are now behind us.

This school used to be top notched but there is now a culture of mediocrity that is eroding the environment. There are still many excellent educators here; they are not allowed to do their jobs effectively. We had children in this school from 2005 until last year and the decline was appalling. It was an excellent environment in 2005, as good as any private school in TN and by 2013 I would compare it with a top 20% Metro Nashville school. The principal is the difference. The previous administrator was hands-on. He greeted every child and every parent each morning. He knew every child by name and knew who their parents were and knew most of us by name. The current principal is rarely seen outside her office and it is completely baffling how she continues to hold this position. The only good thing I can say about this is it fed our kids into Brentwood Middle which is every bit as excellent as this school was 10 years ago.

I do not recommend this school. Our child never wanted to go to school while attending Lipscomb. The school is very over crowded and the teachers and staff seem very unhappy.



- a teacher
The parents and most kids are nice but the educational value is definitely not what it used to be. I think many people want a home in this elementary zone because it is the least expensive for a Brentwood school. LES also has a lot of "fun" stuff like dress up days, fall fest, fun run, etc. so there are opportunities to socialize. Most of the classroom teachers are good teachers but LES has several poor performers that really need to find another occupation, especially in the 5th grade. The administration does not communicate well and the specials teachers are average at best. Some people love Lipscomb but I doubt they have attended or visited other schools in Brentwood.

Lipscomb Elementary is an excellent school! Children have so many chances to be successful and learn here. The school offers everything from their own television station to a chorus and dance program. After school clubs are offered once or twice a year with interesting choices such as jewelry making, quilting and guitar. The academics are extremely challenging with advanced options for high performing students in reading and math. Teachers move at a quick pace but extra help is offered for students who might be struggling. The PTO is efficient, approachable and friendly with meetings every month for parents to attend if they like. The only negative is that the school is so great it is a little overcrowded, but I know the county is building new schools for the future. So very pleased!

My son spent kindergarten (at Kenrose) and 1st grade at Lipscomb. Both excellent, but the nod goes to Lipscomb. He has has excelled in that school's gifted and talented program. Lipscomb and Kenrose provided a great base to his education.
