We Love Lane! I have two children that attend Lane Elementary, and they have enjoyed every minute! I like the way the teachers care for my children and keep me in the 'loop' about their progress. They have an open-door policy and welcome parent helpers and volunteers. My children look forward to the educational field trips and I like the way the trips are connected to their learning. I looked at several schools in the area before moving into this cluster. I wanted a school with diversity, small class size, an acitvie PTA and great leadership. I'm happy to say, I've found all of these qualities at Lane!!
We moved here mid-school yea, our daughter is in 6th grade and the transaction has been rather seamless for her. The faculty and kids have been wonderful in welcoming her and helping her transition to their structure. The one issue my daughter did encounter with another child, was handled quickly and professionally by the teacher, and I am happy to say no other incidences have occurred since. Very happy with Lane Elementary.
Lane is a very welcoming school. The administration, teachers and staff are friendly and really care about the students. Our son is in kindergarten this year and loves being a Lane Lion. We look forward to our daughter entering kindergarten in 2015. The teachers really work together, creating a cooperative environment for the students and families. The PTA is very active, as well! We are very happy here!
The school has supportive teachers who are committed to their students. The multi-age class for 1st/2nd graders has inspired my child to do his very best.
Lane Elem has been a great school for both my kids. Both have enjoyed their teachers and the extracurricular activities offered. Although, both do complain about the quality of food for lunch, so both do bring their lunch to school.
Administration truly seems to care and want students to improve. We are very happy with the school after two years.
This is the 3rd school that my daughter has attended. (We usually move yearly.) This is the best school my daughter has attended. The staff really care. My daughter enjoys her days. We are hoping to stay in the area and continue at Lane.
Our daughter has been a student at Lane for four years. We are very happy with the quality of the instruction, the easy communication with the teachers and front office and the many wonderful in-school and after school activities. It is a very positive environment for children and their families. Go Lions!
I am really happy with Lane so far. It is such a great environment, both from the inside with caring teachers and administration and outside with parents who really talk to one another and watch out for one another. There really seems to be a community here, with parents very willing to be involved and PTA and school events to help build that community feel.
My kids & I love Lane ES. My oldest came from another school, and he compare the 2 and says that Lane teachers' always have an smile on their face, people who works at the school is friendly, etc. Their worse fear is to stop going to Lane if we decided to move. Teachers are well qualified, homework, communication is excellent. I wish they could more field trips & outside activities but I guess this situation is the same across the board in Fairfax county. PTA has good fundraising but should look for new Tecniques to engaged Lane families to do/assist to more activities. Overall Staff, teachers, Directors, are great and well train for their position.
Lane is an amazing school! The teachers are dedicated to the kids and to providing a rich education to each and every one of them. My children love going to school everyday and have developed loving and trusting relationships with their teachers. I have been disappointed by the lack of involvement of many parents with the PTA, but the PTA is an incredible source of support to this school.
This is our first experience with the elementary school system and so far Lane has been absolutely top notch!! Our Kindergartener has grown leaps and bounds both academically and in maturity in just the last two months!! He has a wonderful, enthusiastic teacher and assistant teacher. Socially the school has a very well run PTA and the Principal is very involved. We are thrilled with the school and look forward to more years to follow in the school!
Lane is one of the best elementary schools around. The teachers care and are out to teach the kids about life not just SOL tests. The PTA is highly active and supports the students, teachers and families.
The community at Lane is very engaged - the teachers, administrators and parents are all involved in the successful education of our children. It's a very positive atmosphere and the children benefit from the involvement of so many different people from different backgrounds. The children also get to benefit from a variety of specials throughout the week - library, computer lab, music, PE, art - as well as a variety of extracurricular activities the PTA sponsors. Our experience at Lane has been very positive! And, the SACC program there is also great!
I have a third grader and a Kindergarten student at Anthony T Lane Elementary. I am in my 4th year at Lane and absolutely love the school. We have a fabulous Principal who is a parent as well which keeps her balanced between the parents and the administration. Our Assistant Principals also bring fabulous leadership to our school. We have fabulous PTA run after school programs and an unbelievable curriculum as well. Our Art and Music programs keep our kids well rounded. Our PTA is fantastic and family oriented. I feel lucky that we are in the Lane district lines and feel my kids are blossoming because of the education they are receiving.
This school has been great for my two kids. Positive experience thus far with teachers and PTA.
I really like Lane and have positive interactions with teachers and administrators. PTA has helped the school tremendously with needed projects and materials.
The staff and the administration at this school are top notch. The demographic mix of students and the multicultural exposure my son receives at Lane is an added bonus for my son. In addition, the PTA is very involved with the school and raises slot of money to assist the school in getting items on teachers wish lists.
My kids have attended Lane for 3 years. The teachers are all wonderful. The PTA is very strong and involved with this school, constantly helping the school with various projects and funding events.
My son entered Kindergarten this year at Lane and so far it has been a positive experience. They have a very active PTA and the principal and assistant principals seem to be very involved with all aspects of the school and are very approachable.
