I LOVE this school. It has a great sense of community and excellent teachers. My son has Mrs. Sandoval for first grade this year and he has done nothing but flourish in her class and in LCM's supportive learning environment.

Notice the header on the top of this page says 798 students. We too have experience several security and safety issues. The kids are 6, 8 and 9. Dismissal ...  Read more

I am very disappointed! Not only has my 5 year old been allowed to leave with an unapproved adult, my requests for control measures at release especially with the large amounts of subs in the class have not been addressed. The focus is on doing worksheet after worksheet. It is even used as their ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
