I give this school a BIG FAT U for Unsatisfactory work. I have only met a couple of teachers who seem to do their job well. My 4th grader has NO GRASP of basic multiplication. I had to memorize it in 3rd grade to pass math. My 3rd grader has no concept of grammar and punctuation or of writing in cursive. ...  Read more

Layne is a wonderful school. The teachers are amazing and work so hard to help the children learn. The teachers, the office staff, and assistants make this school work well. The school staff is amazing. The administration could be better. She could be more friendly to parents and supportive of her staff.

I was very excited when my children started at Layne... What a let down. Uniforms are more important than books. In some classes there is a one to three ratio with text books. These children are the future and have no chance at Layne.

I love Layne! All of my children have attended and I have been very pleased. I feel comfortable voicing any concerns I have had and feel like they were addressed in a prompt and (most of the time) satisfactory manner. We have been happy with the teachers and feel that the teachers were also always ...  Read more

I think that Layne is a fantastic school. Everyone of the teachers seem to know the students, they care about each of the students as individuals. The principal works hard to promote positive self images in the students.The school has several students that have major individual needs and the staff works ...  Read more
