I've met 3 "principals" since the school started. My child has had to change teachers because his teacher left the school. We got a weekends notice...

So far my children have had a wonderful experience. my kids were from out of state and the teacher and principal are very welcoming and helpful. the only thing i would imporve would be the dismissal dont feel like it is very organized. And the teacher to child ratio.

I attended Lankershim from 1950 to 1955. All I can remember are good times, and teachers who cared about their charges. Three teachers stand out in my memory. Mrs. Hodges (kindergarten), Mr. Irwin Sobel, (6th grade) and one very special lady, Winifred Scribner, (1st grade). I dropped by around ...  Read more

2012 - 2013 school year is off to a slow start. I can only hope that the staff and educators that took the responsibility to teach our children can rise up, and do the right thing.

My son just started going to Lankershim in Dec. The current principal has only been there for a little over a year. I'm impressed with his commitment to the kids & to the school. In just these 6 months there have been several volunteer clean-up/beautification events - one where Universal/NBC employees ...  Read more

Parents are not always the best, but you can't judge the school by it's parents. The school works very hard to make this a welcoming and acheiveing school. Curb-side service, fundraisers, friendlier staff, and a hardworking principle is just one of the many positive changes. Acknowledging the shortcommings, ...  Read more
