This school has one of the best teachers I have ever encountered. I raised my kids here in Alvarado schools and now I am seeing my grandchildren being reared up in the Alvarado schools and they are starting out in Lillian Elementary. She started out as Miss Dotson and became Mrs. Chanault. This is a great teacher. We have lots of great stories but want to say thanks to Mrs. Chanault for her patience and kindness.

My daughter went to a school in the city and was on the verge of Bullemia and an identity crisis at the age of 6. Lillian really turned her around. She is a straight A student with perfect attendence and perfectly healthy. I would'nt move if you paid me the very best public or milatary school I have ever experianced and the parent involvment is great! No child is truly left behind!

The parent involvment is great, and the teachers really try to meet each kid at their own level. They don't offer a lot of extracurricular associated just with Lillian Elementary, but there is choices outside of Lillian to involve your kids in. The academic programs my daughter has done well in because of the teacher meeting her on her level and challenging her even when she may be ahead of the other students in her class. I really enjoy this school, and appreciate the teachers and staff.
