LDC has been a fantastic experience so far, and I don't anticipate that changing. My son loves his school, the parents are involved, the teachers seem to geniunely enjoy teaching at our school and love the kids. There are too many fun and additional activities outside of school to count, from chili art fundraisers to family math and reading nights to fall festivals, it's actually hard to keep up. We are so fortunate to have this for our kids and I wish more elementary schools were as supportive and available in metro Nashville.

Lockeland Design is a good School but not for kids with exceptional education needs as is most of Nashville. One of the biggest negatives about this school is the lack of services available for children on the AS. I guess that is more of a Tennessee issue. The lack of real diversity in this school is another big negative as well. The positives are the teachers really do care and the principle cares as well. The PTO is very involved and that helps.

The school thrives on the involvement of the parents and teachers in each child's life. I have never seen a better atmosphere for learning, growth, and self-confidence than in the huge team that is Lockeland.

I love Lockeland because it's a throwback to old neighborhood schools. Many of us walk to school each day and the parents know each other, the kids and the teachers. Everyone is supportive of the school and it's just a sweet little school tucked into a great little neighborhood. How lucky are we?!

Our school has provided a wonderful environment for my children to grow and learn. I love that we have embraced green programs such as composting and a school garden and most importantly I love that the parents and faculty are very devoted to giving their time and energy to make the school so amazing.

It's an amazing, nurturing neighborhood school with great involvement by parents with teachers. Each student is known personally by the faculty, staff, and the principal. Children are celebrated for what they are at the same time that they learn at an astounding rate. My child comes home smiling every day.

Lockeland is nestled in a well established older neighborhood. The curriculum is designed to center around Language Arts, including a Story Telling Festival and Spanish (Immersion) taught every day to all the children. This school is preparing most of the children to go on to college, and also practices inclusion for children with disabilities. (We no long have Pre-K, because the school is full of students K-4).

I have had my children at Lockeland for the past 5 years - this is my daughter's last year there and, fortunately, she is headed to a terrific middle school. But my kids were so fortunate to have been able to attend this school - excellent programs and teachers. Dedicated, kind, and helpful staff. The principal is excellent. I have nothing but the highest praise for Lockeland.

Fantastic school! Best one in the cluster and I'd say it's the best in Metro Nashville!

I agree with the other posts, this is a great school. Spanish is taught daily and there are bilingual signs throughout the building. My son has learned how to read and write in Spanish, the 1st grade classes published books in Spanish. And, we had our 2nd Annual Storytelling Festival featuring some bright talented Storytellers from our school.

Lockeland Design Center is a wonderful school with a diverse economic and social student population. The school is a language/literature based program that is the best Nashville has to offer. My son absolutely loves reading and going to school. Not only did they have the highest scores in reading, but in math as well. the students have Spanish daily and it is amazing to see what they learn in even Kindergarten. The parent involvement is great and most parent's volunteer in some capacity, whether it's with the PTO, classroom, library, field trips or any other need the school has. We never lack for our parent's to step up and be active. I am so pleased to have this school available for my son to attend. If you are looking for a great public elementary school to send you child to, Lockeland Design Center would be a great choice.
