10 Parent Reviews for Lawrence Elementary School

My child went to this mad house for 3 years......maintain your sanity~ do NOT send your child here.

This school is very bad off!! Since the Local School Council came up with the bright idea to fire the principal, the school has turned into a mad house. The front office is excellent! However, just the other day I saw a student punch the sec. guard.

My children attended Robert Lawrence and now my grandchildren attend this school. For years the school has been great -- the teachers are awesome. Now the politics and district zoning have created unsolvable problems that only the voices of the parents and community may be able to help change. Overall ...  Read more

Academic programs are terrible. There are no after school programs for the children. There are no music classes or art classes. It is impossible for a parent like me that works 9 to 5 to be involved in this school. They never have any meetings with parents after hours and it is hard to meet with a ...  Read more

I have three children at this school. My oldest is in the fifth grade. In the past couple of years I have notice changes in the school for the worst. Everyday more and more kids are fighting and adminstration is not doing anything about it. Last year, I went up to the school at least twice a month for ...  Read more

We moved to the Jeffery Manor neighborhood in the summer of 2004. Our son started attending this school in 2005. Since, that time our interactions and contact with the school has be very disturbing. The academic goals at this school seems to be a strive for mediocrity or worse. The 6th grade classes ...  Read more
