We recently moved from another school within the district to this one. My son's teacher is extremely professional and provides a true place for learning. We have also found the staff to be supportive of their teachers, an integral part to a good education.

LCH is in a great neighborhood, has warm, smart, caring teachers and staff, and has many added programs as a result of a terrific PTA effort.

This school has a fantastic staff and terrific administration. The teachers care about the children and all of the parents appear to be active and involved in their childs leaning and quality of education. The new principal is wonderful... who could ask for more!!!

This is an amazing school, teachers are very dedicated and parents care about their children's education and are very active in the PTA and volunteering in the classroom and for fund driving. I could not be happier. We have a new principle this year and I'm hopeful she will continue my children's positive ...  Read more

Principal is the least of the problems in that school as she is not the one who supervise the school anyway. I wish she was an over achiever instead of being an under achiever. They seem they might be doing excellent in 1970s but is unable to grasp the 21st century on many aspects of education. Most ...  Read more

Principal is horrible at this school. She does not care about what is best for the children, only her own political agenda! We left this school and are so happy we did. Four Families from one Kinder class all left this school! We did have a wonderful teacher here, I will say that. Just don;t expect anything ...  Read more
