I was very optimistic about Lenart, but find that the teachers lack enthusiasm and the curriculum is uninspiring. I wish I saw the kids more excited about learning - as gifted students, there should be MANY MORE opportunities to showcase their talents outside the traditional classroom, as well as to ...  Read more

She stated our scores could be better. She said that the exiting principal and assistant principal did a good ...  Read more

There is a very strong focus on academics and this school knows what it takes to motivate children to learn and accelerate. The teachers are outstanding. For the future, I hope there will be more time for recess and arts.

My son is entering first grade and we absolutely love Lenart! We have found the teachers, principal, assistant principal, and counselor to be extremely accessible, engaged, and dedicated to the students. It is an academically intense program but we have felt that our son has been very supported by ...  Read more

I have two children at Lenart. For the first time in their lives they are challenged and loving it. The children at Lenart are motivated and ambitious - they love to learn. Very few discipline problems, if any, as a result. We love the fact they are learning French and Latin. They work a solid two ...  Read more
