Littlerock Elementary School is a very friendly place. Parents feel welcome there, and so do kids.

My two grandchildren attend Littlerock Elementary School and both are well adjusted little girls. They tell me, "I Love School", which states a lot about the environment and teachers at this elementary school. The academic and activity techniques used always keep the two girls interested and enthusiastic to do their very best! These kids are our future, and good habits begin at home and in their Elementary School Environment.

We love Littlerock Elementary! Our son has attended Littlerock since preschool and is now in the 3rd grade. The staff and parent volenteers are amazing and caring, everyone goes out of their way to greet each student, make them feel special and listened to and help them in anyway they can. What an amazing school setting, community and family feeling they have there! We are proud to be Littlerock Tigers!!!

I absolutely love this school and so does my son. My son is now in the 2nd grade and started there as a kindergardener. We did alot of research when making our decision to purchase a home and loved the tumwater school district and was very excited to learn he would be attending Little Rock. The teachers are wonderful and Mr.Pulley is great. Go tiger pride!

We've had 3 kids at LRE over that last 7 years, and we LOVE this school. My kids have grown & thrived here. The principal (Mr Pulley) is a godsend. He is a hands-on leader who spends a lot of time in the classroom interacting with the students. And the students love him! The office staff is friendly and helpful. And the teachers are GREAT. There are lots of extracurricular activities too. My kids have been in drama, band, choir, & talent shows. They've got great memories from all the fun fieldtrips. And we enjoy the PTO sponsored events (winterfest, octoberfest etc). Being involved at LRE is like being a part of a large supportive family. I encourage everyone to get involved (especially if you are a first time kindergarten parent who has gotten off on the wrong foot) & give it a chance. This really is a great school.

For a first time Kindergarten parent, and it being the beginning of the school year. . . I'm not very impressed. I went to this school as a child, and loved it. I know that the teachers are all wonderful. Uniquie, diverse, informed, and great with the students. However the principal and office staff leave a lot to be desired. No one has authority to answer any questions, nor will they give you advanced notice of any kind. The principal only focused on BUDGET CUTS the entire Kindergarten Round-Up registration. I can tell you what my student will NOT get, but I have no idea what my student will get in terms of an education this year. So long as I don't have to deal with the principal or office staff very often, all should be fine.

i love the tearchers! they are all very different but teach so well...

While we are pleased with most of the staff there are a particular few who need to expand their intellectual horizons when it pertains to children that have minor special needs. It does not take a good staff to concentrate on the great students, but it takes a dedicated staff to help those who need it most.
