Lancaster Elementary School5

I can't speak for other parents, but my child has attended Lancaster Elementary since Kindergarten and every teacher he has had was wonderful and extremely helpful. I have no qualms about recommending Lancaster Elementary School to anyone wanting their child to receive a great education in a positive, kid-friendly environment.
This school has not performed up to our expectations.4th grade last year was a little better but 5th grade this year is constant disappointments, and mostly with the teachers.As parents we are very involved in our learning. One teacher assumed that we were doing his work for him. This was the 2nd week of school and we had never met her before this day.We were told not to help??? Another teacher talked as though her students were getting out of hand. Only a few were doing O.K. and our son was one.Who is in control? Last year we located seemingly better schools but these schools have waiting lists.We have endured this second year but the school has gone from bad to worse.We would not recommend this school to anyone.
I'm a proud Lancaster Elementary parent and even moreso today. The new TEA ratings were just released and Lancaster Elementary received the state's highest rating, Exemplary! I'm very excited about the upcoming year.
the principal has horrible manners and lack of social skills as well as the office staff. the most boring school there is for kids, no incentives given out. the teachers are great but the school is run poorly.
The teachers and pricipals have an i dont care attitude about alot of the students, my children have gone down hill, since they have been enrolled first there grades went down and then the bad behavior started because they were ashamed and emmbarrased of not knowing how to do there work. From talking to a few other parents they feel the same about their children and have removed them out of the school.
Lancaster Elementary is an excellent school! As the parent of two Lancaster Elementary students, one in fifth grade and the other in first, I have never seen a school where the teachers are so committed to making sure that their students receive a quality education. My youngest son is highly-motivated and is thriving in the school's gifted and talented program. My other son has had a harder time academically, but in the two years that he has been at Lancaster Elementary, his teachers have done a terrific job with him and regularly keep me informed about the progress he is making. Today, he is an A-B student and is enthusiastic about learning. This level of care and attention was virtually nonexistent at his previous school in another suburb of Dallas, which was said to be 'highly-regarded' campus in a 'highly-sought-after' school district, neither of which turned out to be true.
