This school's administration HAS IT TOGETHER!! This is our first year at Lascassas Elementary School, but both my 5th grader and my Kindergartener are thriving under their care. Events have been well-planned and executed and the teacher's seem to have what they need to do their jobs well. This has been an extremely positive experience for us! I definitely recommend this school.

I have two children here. My 3rd grader loves it & his teachers! My 5th grader however hates school now. My child has suffered bulling from a teacher. The vice principle herself is a bully. Everyone in the office is pompous. It is so bad I'm seeking homeschooling options for the next school year! Every child deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. However my child is not getting either at Lascassas.

Very rude teachers and faculty! My child was very nervous about starting a new school. I tried to reassure her that she would be welcomed and make new friends. She did make new friends, but not one single person from the staff bothered to make her transition easier. She has always loved school until now. I am exploring private school options at this time. I do not want the NEGATIVE attitude of these adults to prevent my daughter from learning. Very disappointed in this school! I should have listened to others before moving here.

I have two children at Lascassas. I am a very involved parent and like to volunteer to help with every event that the school has. I feel that academically my children have excelled here. I will say that the front office is not friendly at all. I feel that this reflects the leadership at Lasacassas. I mean if I am going to volunteer my time to help, the ladies at the front desk could welcome people with a least eye contact and a smile! Some of the teachers are unprofessional and very unfriendly. I have experienced my child having problems with another child bullying, and nothing was done about it by the leader. What are our public schools coming to?!

Lascassas is the BEST school ever. My daughter went through LES (k-5)and is at OMS now. My son is in the 5th grade. The school, teachers, principals, etc....are AWESOME!!!! Love the strictness and the family atmosphere. Don't change a thing. LOVE IT......

This is an excellent school! The principal is fair to all students, parents, and staff The assistant principal is extremely knowledgeable about special education issues. I think she was a special education teacher! The teachers are fantastic and the students are extremely well behaved. The school is strict, but not overly so. I would bet that any negative comments come from parents of students that misbehave and have to have consequences for their actions. Keep doing what you are doing Lascassas!!!!

My rating is not based on the academic achievements of this school,which are great, but the social tyranny that exists within the walls. Out of control power has led to crumbling self esteem in the children. The same principal has reigned for too many centuries it seems. My daughter was hospitalized after constant harrasment by the vice principal. It's been a nightmare.

This will be my child's fifth year at this school, for the most part this has been a great school. Mr. Duke is a wonderful Principal and I like knowing that he runs a very tight ship! My only concern is that this school is not ADHD friendly and I find that every year it only gets worse. I find that some teachers don't want to deal with it.

There is no program for children with ADHD or or autism spectrum disorders. Very little understanding of individual/special needs of children that are not 'typical'. There is a lot of bullying in the school also.

Our daughter is a current student at LES and she likes it very much. For us, it is important to know that Mr. Duke has best interest in his students and challenges his faculty to exert their best abilities and willingness. So far, the teachers have been very creative in their class preparation. Keep up the good work!

For the most part lascassas is as good a school as any. My concern is that most of the teachers are so hostile, not friendly. If they don't like being there teaching they need to get another job! It is so important to have teachers that Love their job,to love doing what they do. It makes for a Much better school year.

I have two children at Lascassas (1st grade & 6th grade). My husband & I have been extremely impressed with the academics, sports, faculty, PTO, and the community of Lascassas. Mr. Duke has the students best interest at heart in all situations. He demands the best from his students as well as his teachers. The amount of involvement from the PTO is amazing and second to none. We love the K-8th grade concept. Mac.

I have had three children to go through this school, and all have had wonderful experiences. My oldest has significant special needs, and was treated wonderfully. It's great not having to worry about his educational program, and knowing that he's with teachers that are caring yet will push him to his potential.
