This is an excellent school with a diverse community and a warm spirit. I have spoken with both the Assistant Principal and Principal in passing and it is obvious that both love their students and community. My daughter began the school year knowing most, if not all of the required material, but her teacher found other methods/material to challenge her. She loves the school so much that we are planning to stay until she enters middle school. Texas public school currciculum is not for everyone. Meaning that the state requires the teachers to follow the instructional guides they set forth, which leaves some children (like mine) a little bored. However, I feel that the teachers in her classroom and "out class" offer a variety of instructional methods to hold her interest and challenge her. She loves her classmates and teachers and looks forward to 1st grade. If I could change one thing, it would not be the school, but the State Board. The school is wonderful and provides a safe, stress free learning environment for the students. The stress I originally felt concerning public school vanished the first day upon meeting the school secretary and Assistant Principal. We love this school.
This is an excellent school. From the moment you walk in the front door you are greeted with a friendly smile. My child was having some problems and everyone from the principal to the teachers aid was involved to help us find a solution. Mrs. Burrows is an A+ teacher.
I have 2 children at LCE. We have experienced amazing support from both the administration and from each and every teacher (and there have been many between my two children) through our entire enrollment. Active parent involvement is apparent throughout the school. My husband and I have been very pleased with the academic progress our children have made each school year.
This school made my children happier, more responsible, and more organized. I am very happy to see them making friends easily at this school, as well as learning a lot. I have learned that some teachers use special techniques to help the kids be happier, smarter, and kinder. I just love this school known as 'Lexington Creek Elementary'!
We have been at Lexington Creek for 4 years and COULD not be HAPPIER! We have a third grader and kindergartner.The principal is ABSOLUTELY wonderful.All the teachers are great and go beyond to make sure you're child succeeds.I hope in years to come it stays this way.
We are new Parents at the LCE and though it has been only 2 days yet, we are pretty thrilled with the School. I was impressed with the School when we went in and took an appointment to meet the Principal and she was really helpful. She explained her intent and school Program in detail and we are so far happy with the experience. Our daughter has moved from a private school PreK system into LCE and we hope that the journey of learning continues here...
The quality of teaching has increased with the new principal. The children are reading, writing & doing math at a more accelerated rate. There was immediate change in school activity, for the better. There was also immediate improvement in family activity after school hours with the children.
The quality of teaching has been in decline with the new principal. The extended care is even worse - my kid does not even want to go there anymore. We want Jan McDonald back! She was the principal who really cared about academics.
I have to say Lexington Creek Elementary does need a lots of improvements specially when it come to helping student acheive there academics. They don't have any tutuoring help for students before or after school and also most of the teachers doesn't seem to care for the students. This school should be rated lower than it is now.
We are so excited about the new principle; she dedicated and approachable. She seems to have the children's best interest at the heart of all she does. Now, if we could get the PTO to advertise their meetings. We get plenty of notices about fund raisers, but not much about meetings. Some of us would like to offer our input as to how the money we raise should be spent for the children. Not for 'thank-you' gifts.
I have twin second graders that were new to this school last September. My kids love their new school & so do my husband & I. The teachers & faculty are very supportive. I love the communication that we have through the kids Agendas & emails. The boys teachers have worked with us this year to make our boys learning successful. LCE has a NEW principal this year & she is very involved in the 'campus life'. I sometimes see her outside helping the kids to get dropped off for school in the mornings. The speech, music, art, math, reading, PE, library teachers & volunteers have taught our boys so much. They are always coming home talking about something new that they have learned. The PTO puts the donated money to good use. The playgrounds are great & the teachers have plenty of supplies. We are very happy with LCE!
Both my children My son has attended LCE for to years. LCE is a school where the children come first and every child is uncouraged to do their best. The special ed teachers have worked hard to bring out the best in every child. Thank you LCE for bringing out the best in my child and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! '
Fundraisers for a school is one thing - the never ending trail of fundraisers for every organization that has hit the hallways is tiring. American Heart, Lymphoma, Diabetes, American Lung, etc. - we're being 'good caused' to death and not teaching compassion - only competition to 'beat the other classes'. The principal is kind to the kids but a weak leader. The Destination Imagination Team did well because of the parents involved - not the principal. The PTO organization doesn't want parental input - only the board gets a 'say' in what happens. There are no actual meetings. They happily take your money, but don't want to hear from you for the rest of the year unless you're helping with extra hands in a 'cause'. Don't get me wrong, there are good teachers - even great teachers. There are some really bad ones too. And the principal is weak at best.
Just want to address the fundraiser issue... Neither the State nor the school district provides the little 'extras' in maintaining our schools. If LCE needs new, safe, playground equipment or new computers, it is up to the school to finance. The fundraisers help pay for these things. They also provide some of the fun stuff for the students such as bus service or admission fees for field trips. It's tough, but necessary.
Excellent school and teachers. Pricipal is very supportive of academic activities. Super smart kids in the school too - They won first place in DestinationImagination Global competition in 2005. None of the school in Fort Bend county has ever accomplished that in the last 10 years! As we all know that the key for your kids' success rests on both the school and the home (parents). I have to agree that the academic program in most schools are not challenging. That's why parents need to get involved to shape the education.
Academically I think they have a really good program. There are programs for students who are struggling with class material (ie - the reading recovery program). While I'm sure students are exposed to music and art, I do not believe there is any great concentration on these subjects to speak of. There are always plenty of parents willing to volunteer for school campus activities or field days. The front office staff are extremely pleasant to everyone. I've walked-in on conversations between a student and the staff; it was nice and respectful -- not demeaning. I do not like the never-ending barrage of fund raisers the school subjects parents to, but overall I find it to be a great place for my child.
My son is in 5th and my stepson is in 1st. this is our 2nd year at the school and we love it. I have to say they have had great teachers. I feel they have always been there to answer our questions no matter how small or big. I love that about them. I think the school is great.
Lexington Creek Elementary is a school that provides no support for children who struggle with academics. It is geared for parents who will work at home with the children or who hire teachers to tutor the kids after hours at rates up to 40/hour for an elementary child to be tutored.
I agree with the previous review. The lack of leadership from the pricipal is causing the good teachers to leave. There is high turn over. I am trying to file a complaint with texas education committee.
The principal says one thing and does another. Some of the teachers are excellent, but others don't even have a fifth grade knowledge of basic facts. Don't believe that you are the only one expressing concerns, no matter what the principal says.
