5 Parent Reviews for Lara Elementary Academy

Overall, this is a great school and a great staff as well, for the most part. Ms. Kanabjin was my son's 4th grade teacher and was a complete bully to him as well as other students. After discussing this issue with the principal, Ms. Kanabjin became even more rude to my son. Completely childish and unprofessional.

I need to see some recent reviews, and how are the other teachers, what about the programs for children with autism?

The best caring and great teachers Mr Cervantes and Mr Retana. Now my kids love to read and write.

This is a great school, if a child go's to lara he/she is a luck child. Mr. Retana, Mr.Malgar, and Ms. Kanabjan are 3 of the most qualified teachers.
