LCCS is great school. New Principal on board so far so good. You have to pay attention to little details of the curriculum and attend parent teacher meeting to be productive. Overall you still have to play a significant role in your childs academic life.

I doubt that the post of April 27 was written by a teacher. They are miserable for the very reasons stated in the post of May 30, plus more. The interactions I have heard are alarming. Most are job hunting.

My son attends LCCS thankfully for the last year, the new principal Colin Hogan has no respect for parents opinions.

I love LCCS. The unique feature of this school is that they concentrate on every kid in the class. They work on individual kids' weakness & also encourage their strengths.

My three children have attended this school since 2007 and have loved it. I have found no instances of the teachers being fearful of the new principal. Quite the opposite actually.

I have two kids enrolled. We used to have all three kids there but ended up transferring our eldest out this year because of the downturn of the school in 2012. The principal and staff were not aligned and her leadership was not great. I am in the education professionally and saw the rigor and discipline ...  Read more

I have to agree with recent posting by the teacher below. The new principal is absolutely NOT aligned with the principles of which the founders (Libby McDonald and Alma Rodriguez and others) had in mind. The comment about breaking down the child to build him up is absolutely true. Even for minor infractions. ...  Read more

This school was a great school years ago and has gotten worse over the past 3 years. This year, the school principal resigned and the new principal seems to be overly opinionated and is trying to re-write the principals of the school.. The teachers cannot act without his approval. The children are fearful ...  Read more

My son goes to LCCS since last year. He loves it and I am not thinking of moving out of jersey city because of public school system any more. Teachers are hard working and unlike jersey city public schools kids do not have behavioral problem.
