This is a wonderful school! My daughter has attended LCE since the 1st grade and will be leaving for 6th grade in the fall. The principal is outstanding--she's super involved with the kids and parents. From working the car lane in the mornings to monitoring the cafeteria-she is very engaged. Our family loves this school because it always has something going on to connect with the surrounding community. Family nights and programs are always fun! LCE has been recognized for excellence for at least the last 5 years we've been in the area. This is the school you want your child to attend if you live nearby! It's not perfect, of course, and some of her teachers have been more proactive than others, which is why I didn't rate it 5 stars. But her time there pans out to a great experience. We will truly miss LCEl!

My child attended LCE for three years. The staff was uncaring and incompetent. The administration was unresponsive to requests. The whole school district seems to be going down hill. Nice new building though.

Las Colinas Elementary (LCE) School is a great place to learn and grow as students. It's also a place that is welcoming of parent involvement and partnership. There is many family-oriented events throughout the year. There are more than 100 family members who attend School Family Nights, the school's monthly PTA meeting. Teachers email and text helpful information and are equally responsive to the needs of the students and their families.

This school is really doing great job. My Son is attending the same and I have noticed a lot difference comparing to other public schools' students. They are assessing the kids on bimonthly basis and helping them to improve over time by providing extra time where they need improvements.

A school is only as good as it's leadership and this school is lacking in that department. Administration is inexperienced, cold, does not always put the kids first and does not always demonstrate professionalism in the way they talk with parents who have concerns. The children are not challenged and many classrooms do not have proper resources for encouraging the kids to go above and beyond. There are, however, a few hidden gem teachers so if you are lucky enough to get one, it can make your year. And generally, there is a good amount of parent involvement. Overall though, this school has gone way downhill.

It is understandable that they could not provide books to bring home that students can use for reviewing lessons. What can really upsetting for parents to know is that most of the teachers are rude! It seems that they want to show who are the boss. Most of them I had encountered do not know how to converse professionally if there were misunderstandings. I had unpleasant experience with them. They humiliate parent in front of the others with their shouting voice. My kids were telling stories that few of their classmates cried in the classroom because their teacher yelled at them and sent them outside the room(for asking many questions.)

My daughter goes to LCE Kindergarten. She loves going to school everyday. The teachers are so patient n helpful with the kids. They know need of each student and design their teaching patterns accordingly. Regular updates through emails, mailers, meeting gives visibility on whats happening in class. Extra curricular activities are good and never too much homework! The infrastructure and upkeep of the school is awesome. I think the school is doing a great job keeping the children n parents happy!

I have been in this school from kindergarden to 3rd grade...i left in the middle of 3rd and came to india...I miss all of my friends and my teachers(Mrs.Richardson, Mrs.Bolton,Mrs.Gibson etc.). I left in 2009 and that was my most horrible day...My friends were Uma, Riley Zimmerman, Braedon, Twinkle, Skyler and Edwin. I hope you all see this and remember who i am...I am Ananya Jain and i hope you remember me...this is an awesome school and i am regretting till now that i had left this school...it has an awesome cafetaria, classrooms, gym and playground. I loved the field trips the most and I hope i make a trip to america and the first thing i will do is i will come to this school...MISS ALL OF U!

This is a great school. I wish the curriculum was more challenging as my 1st grader finds his spelling tests way too easy but overall I am really happy with this school for many reasons. I like that they give homework, which does not take time, but atleast in the mind of kids emphasize that they need to take their school seriously and be accountable. I love the discipline system in the classrooms. Also, the moral values and principals that the school tries in inculcates in children is simply outstanding. This is what I value the most as this is the time when my kid is shaping his character. His teacher is very nice. I simply have no complaints. Love the school.

This is my son's first year (Kinder) at LCE and I have to say I LOVE it so far. I am a working parent, so I am not able to get as involved, but I help when I can with the PTA, etc. Communication through email is great and my son has learned so much this year. There is a new principal (Abby McCone) this year, and she is great too!

I went to Las Colinas for 5 years. The school has a good enviorment and they never give to much homework.The school is clean and the staff are great. There are lots of extra- curriculum activities.The language classes are great. There is a big playground and plenty of space to run in. The gifted and talented programs started to fall in 07-08 but then IB started I I think the school will become better. The only problem is the principle who we never liked. Other wise, the school is great.

LCE is a wonderful school! My children spent two years here. The academic program here is excellent. Quality work is expected from the students beginning in Kindergarten. Spanish and science are taught in regular studies even in Kindergarten. The principal is respected, hands-on to the students, readily visible and approachable. The teaching staff are experienced and caring. There is not a better or more friendly office staff. The cultural mix of students is great and rounds out a true school family. LCE has a very active and productive PTA. My kids learned how to learn at LCE.

I am very happy with the teachers.I think the person who is sitting in the front desk has no business to be rude to the parents or the chidren.The first impression due to her behavior is really deprimental for the school.

I am from New Olreans, La. due to hurricane Katrina and had a 5 and 10 yr. old at LCE for 2 semesters. LCE is a great school with a wonderful academic program for both of my kids. The staff at the front office are the kindest people I have ever met and they love doing their jobs. They greet you with a smile everytime you walk into the office. The principal is a great leader and is very involved with the 'hands on' day to day activities. I have never seen her in her office. As a matter of fact, I don't even know where her office is located. The parental involvement is great at LCE. I have never seen a school with such high enrollment in the PTA. If I were to remain in Texas I would definitely keep my children in LCE!

The enthusiasm for kids and the high teacher involvement make this a very special school. The principal is very hands on and has made sure the school has art, music, Spanish and PE available to the kids. The atmosphere is upbeat and happy and the PTA is award winning for their great projects and their enthusiastic involvement with the school. Teachers are out in the parking lots greeting kids as they arrive - calling them each by name. Every time I have lunch with my daughter there are always a lot of other parents there too. One down fall might be a lack of computers ---- every class has several, but they are not state of the art. The office staff is great to work with and very interested in the kids. It's a real pleasure to take my daughter there to school each day.
