This school goes by "SAFETY" is their first priority but they're far from it. My son loves learning until he started going to this school he has been bullied and gotten into a couple of fights that have resulted in one of the other kids getting hurt, to me as a parent that is very concerning and it should have been something the school staff, principal, or some type of adult to be aware of but NO!! nobody knew anything no teachers, staff or aids that are suppose to be watching them during recess noticed this incident or even knew about it even though they were sent to nurses office to be checked out. They also do not pay attention to the kids to make sure they get on bus. The most concerning of all is that he is only in Kindergarten. They pretend to listen to your concerns and say they'll investigate but never get back to you with answers.

My daughter has attended this school for the last 6 years. We have enjoyed being a part of this schools community. The teachers have been very caring and supportive of the students. I hope the next school she goes to is just as good.

My daughter has attended this school since Pre-K. I must admit that the the only teachers that have truly cared are her special ed teacher and her first grade teacher. My daughter has dyslexia and autism (high functionng) and this school made it a very bad experience for me to be able to get her the school serives they are required to provide for her. I have had two teachers simply call my 7 year old lazy, and that I must put my kid on meds. I have been more than patient with this school and its staff. My daughter receives multiple private services for her DX and is improving and learining, just not at the speed the teachers would like. If you have a child with a learning disability, developmental disability, or need extra one on one attention DO NOT take them here. They are under staffed, too many kids are enrolled and they cut their dyslexia program. Good luck to those parents in my shoes, dont give up on your child you must fight to get them what they deserve and require to learn, not what the school system says they can do.

Great environment! My son has attended for the last 3 years, and the professional & caring environment is ideal for learning. I know other military families that feel the same. I am very satisfied.

As a military family we have been all over the united states and unfortunately my boys have attended many schools. I have to say out of all schools attended this one is the most unprofessional and unorganized. My son absolutely loved learning until this year. I have had problems with the front office, bus and teacher. As of now I have talked with the principle and have not seen any results of promises made.

My daughter attends Lujan-Chavez and I am impressed with the dedication and attention to detail that is exhibited in this school. From day one Mr. Hernandez the assistant principal made us feel at home and he made our transition easier. The following day we met Mrs. Walker and she too was very professional and sweet. We are a military family and this is by far the best school I have seen in my daughter's education. We will stay here for as long as possible.

My daughter is a second grader at Lujan-Chavez and is in th GT Program. I am very satisfied with the quality of education, attention to details, level of professionalism, and overall safty of the school. We are a military family and will most likely move soon. But we are so impressed with this school we are looking for ways to prolong our stay here to allow our daughter to continue her elementary education at Lujan-Chavez.

My daughter has been at Lujan-Chavez since kindergarten, and it seems to me that either the school administrators or the district administrators are getting stricter and stricter about the whole school uniform policy. I do not agree with their dress code policy at all. It wasn't bad when my daughter was small, but each year seems to be getting worse and worse. Each year, I go out of my way to buy her pretty new things to wear to school, and each year finds me getting more and more frustrated with the fact that she's frightened of being punished for wanting to look nice. I think it's absolutely ridiculous! It is NOT a private school where the kids are required to wear uniforms! I'm to the point where I would put her in another school, but all of her friends are there. Besides, it is our district.

I have had my son in this school for almost three years now and overall it has been very good. The administration is well done and the school has had no issues with violence and or other things associated with schools in larger cities like El Paso. The extracurricular activities could be better and more organized, but the school is fairly new and the administration is working to do more. I Give it an A overall.

My son (First Grade) and my daughter (Pre-K)are students of Lujan-Chavez Elementary. My wife and I are absolutely delighted with the quality and quantity of work assigned to them on a daily basis. Teachers are very dedicated and strive to make this a quality school. The level of discipline is superior to other schools in the region and the students behavior reflect the care and attention that the teachers provide each student. We would like to see more extracurricular activities provided like sports / athletics (soccer, softball, gymnastics, etc.) and music options available for overall growth.

This is a good school overall. They are a little hard on the children I think. My son and I are doing homework for 2-3 hours a night sometimes. It is a very high level education.
