I have seen a wonderful level of parental involvement during my time with LUES. I do not know of any extracurricular activities offered at the school. I am concerned about the level of involvement that the teachers show when a student has a problem. I have heard a teacher say ( firsthand

Some of the teachers are unwilling to do anything 'extra' to help your child succeed...even when there's a proven, demonstrated need for extra help or attention. Parents...BEWARE! On the other hand, there are some WONDERFUL teachers there who do honestly care for the children. It has been a pleasure to work with them. To those teachers who do take pride in their nvolvement with the children, THANK YOU! and keep up the good work.! Read less

She expects the best from not only the students but the faculty and staff. I can't go farther without praising Mr.Dexter for keeping the grounds and building clean. We do have discipline problems at Lukeville as well as with any school. We try to curtail most discipline before it gets out of hand. If I had to chose a school to work and send my child to I would chose Lukeville. Read less

I'm not saying we have the perfect school, but it's alot better than some of the places I hear and read about. As with every job, it has some advantages and disadvantages.

There aren't enough extracurricular activities at the school. The teachers do not let you know when there is a problem with your child. My child was a transfer from another school and his grades have dropped dramatically since coming here. During teacher conferences (only during the week of report

I have enjoyed my year at this school. The principal is very strict and the students are respectible towards their teachers and all of the workers and peers at the school. Keep up the good work and stop scaring my child. He does well and is terrified of the principal. But that could be a good thing.
