Everyone who works at Lees Corner wants to see students succeed, feel safe and supported, and enjoy school. Mr. D'Amato is responsive, teachers are patient and strong in instruction, and the front office staff goes above and beyond. The many times I have come in to volunteer or drop off/pick up my child, I am welcomed and helped immediately. The school would not run as well without that team in the office.
I have two kids in this school. They both love it! My son who is shy has flourished here in kindergarten! Mrs. Shin and Baetcke are amazing! My daughter thrived in 1st grade! She was ahead for her age and Mrs. Mendis worked extra hard with her to make sure she stayed ahead. She gave her next grade homework and reading assignments. All the teachers are very responsive. The principal is very approachable. Each year the kids are involved in some kind of performance which I think is amazing. Three Piggie Opera, the Hats show and independence day concert are a few examples. Many activities that keep the community involved like hallowingo. In short, we've had great three years at this school and looking forward to next couple of years here.
We are new to Lees Corner this year. The teachers, so far, have been wonderful. The front office staff are very off-hand and rude every single time I have come in contact with them. Also find it interesting that there is no option to volunteer in either child's classrooms.
My child attended Lees Corner from 2007 to 2013, and had a wonderful experience. Students have multiple teachers in 5th and 6th grades, as the specialize in subject matter those years. With one exception, all of her teachers were outstanding and understanding. The office staff was very helpful, and the PTA members whom I encountered were always ready to listen and assist. No one and no school is perfect, but I highly recommend LCES. Since Mr. D'Amato's arrival a few years ago, he has added so much to the school from the standpoint of instructional program upgrades and physical facility improvements. This school is a proponent of Respect, Collaboration, Excellence!
its good but they should ask what students .want not but 6 TV's just two show pictures and cut funds for the six grade party i think mrs.D' amato does not know how to save mony or spend it hopefuly he see's this review
What a breath of fresh air! Awesome new leadership has brought this school alive. Parent involvement and the PTA has always been excellent but there is a new, positive energy in the school thanks to Mr. D'Amato. I am very pleased to see how far this new leadership takes the school and happy that my 3 kids will be there for the next 4-7 years!
