This school is simply outstanding! My child is dyslexic and the teachers go above and beyond. My child had a great 4th grade year and stayed very motivated all year!!! The Principal shows connectivity with both students and parents. The school itself is very clean and well maintained.

My daughter is currently a fifth grader at LCI. She enjoys her teachers and they seem to be excited about teaching students. The teachers and staff are pleasant and always willing to assist. Her experience in 4th grade was simply outstanding.
