Sent 3 boys thru this school and they are all now college educated and in good careers. Building is old but the staff gets it done and sees that kids needs are met and taught. Thanks

We've had three kids go through this building and are very happy with the results. Our oldest was challenged at appropriate times and flourished under all of her teachers. Our middle child was completely different from his older sister and the staff adapted to his learning style and he flourished. Our youngest is still in the building and she went from being identified as needing extra help with math and reading in first grade to now being at or near the top in both subjects in fourth grade and even reading on her own at home ! We are so happy with every teacher our children have been exposed to. We love the new principal as well. From the janitors to the secretarys and everyone in between these professionals care about the kids and it certainly shown through to us !

My personal opinion of La Crescent Elementary is that at best it is merely an average school. Being that this is the only public school in town families are limited in choice. My child is in kindergarten this year and I'm seeing a great amount of positive parent involvement, when the teachers are in favor of that particular family anyway. For a school with a NO tolerance to bullies they sure do tolerate an awful lot considering what has happened to my child and many others this year, its beyond disappointing. Most of the teachers seem to have chips on their shoulders, but please be assure there are some GREAT ones filtered in each grade. The new principle is wonderful, and seems to be an advocate for the children, not the staff; just waiting to see him following through with the plans he is making.

I am responding to the 1-star rating posted previously. I am speaking purely from my own experiences and understand that other people's experiences will differ. I am mainly responding to the statements regarding lack of return email responses and mingling with students. I emailed Dr. Beddow-Schubert last night and had a response before 7:30 this morning that I expect will completely resolve my issue. This is the only time I have emailed her because the issues I have had in the past were more appropriately handled by others (teachers) who are closer to the situations that my students were involved in. I have been in the school daily (during school year) for the past couple years, and practically EVERY time I am there, Dr. Beddow-Schubert is in the hallways greeting students and parents. My 1st grade student knows her by name and speaks openly with her, so I must assume that she has this opportunity fairly frequently. Regarding the bullying issue.....there are programs in place to discourage bullying and a social worker on-site at the school. There are many different views on the best way to approach bullying situations. Many people share in the responsibility, not just the principal

Principal Julie Beddow-Schubert has an extraordinary unprofessional demeanor in the school. Her lack of response to emails or phone calls, coupled with ineffectiveness in handling bullying issues, makes her a poor choice at best. Unlike in years past, Julie does seem to leave her office from time-to-time to mingle with students. Continual monitoring will prove out whether this is a short-term effort or not. My hope is that the teachers and students will be able to flourish despite the environment they find themselves in.
