Our son started his first year of school here this year in Mrs. Woods' K class. From our first experience through til now, my wife and I have been amazed and so grateful to have such wonderful teachers and staff at this school. Walking to school each morning we join up with all the parents and kids on their way into the complex and it's such a great and involved community. The field trip, projects, PTA meetings, and regular email updates all allow the parents to be hugely involved with their children's education and daily life. This school is the best!

ated review. This school is coasting on its old reputation of being a great school. I have two children that attend this school. Our experience has been quite different. Both children report being yelled at and witnessing other children cry on a daily bases. I started asking around and it seems other parents are having the same experience. I believe that there are some amazing teachers and staff members, but unfortunately they seem overwhelmed and lack support. The playground is normally 80+ kids and are " supervised" by two teachers .Children have been left outside and one child even walked home without any teacher noticing. Kids are often bullied both physically and verbally with little action taken by the teachers. I have heard numerous stories of children returning home with black eyes and other injuries with NO COMMUNICATION from the school. The environment in the lunch room is hostile and uncomfortable. The "lunch ladies" are also overwhelmed. They scream a lot and even slam their hands on the tables to get the kids attention.

I thought it was time someone added a review here. Little Harbour is a great school. You should have no hesitation sending your children here. I would say that the teachers range from good to excellent. My kindergartener and first grader are thriving. My kids tend to excel and I like the way the teachers this year (though not last) are creating special opportunities for them. This did not happen last year for the older one, but is happening this year for both. I guess that's the difference between the good and the excellent teachers. Parents are very involved at this school. The leadership is good. The curriculum in all areas, from the basics, to art to PE to music and theater is all good. The children are kind. It's a funky dated 1970s era building, but who cares? If you don't like the look, you can gaze at the water behind it. How many elementary schools are on the water? Of course the important thing is the education. Feel good about sending your kids to Little Harbour.
