Both of my children were often depressed. Either with how other students treated them, or how the teachers treated them. This is not how elementary school should be.

Overall, we had an okay experience. The School has a great homework policy and a parent signature is required in most cases and they send home a packet of your child's school work at the end of every week for the parents to go through and sign which is an excellent accountability strategy for both parents and students. Ms Verna,a second grade Teacher was excellent with my son, he learnt a lot in her class and she was very kind and communicative with us regarding anything my son needed. Most of the Front Office Staff are very friendly and very warm, although in the last few months prior to us leaving, they had this new Staff who was did not have a very warm personality and it changed the atmosphere of the front office, its funny how one person can bring down the moral of a warm office, what a shame. Overall, great school, majority of the teachers here are very hardworking, friendly, helpful and Strong parents support and involvement.l think Recess is a tad short, only 15 minutes apparently. My boys enjoyed the school for the most part and we appreciated the positives the school had to offer.

We have had a great experience for the past 2 years we have attended this school. Homework is not as bad as what other parents seem it is and we haven't had any issues with the school leadership. They encourage parent involvement and create a great sense of community. PTO is awesome and have many opportunities for kids to shine such as The Variety Show to build kid's confidence, Odyssey of the Mind to enhance their creativity, fundraising and various volunteer opportunities. Teachers go out of their way to help students do well and push them to learn. So far the new Principal seems fully engaged and embraces the legacy of Mr. Shaeferman that just retired. The kids have various programs such as PE, art, music, search and other special subjects. kids are busy learning and I wish recess was longer than 15 minutes, which is the same for all of LCPS. It would solve many behavioral issues overall if kids had more time to get their energy out often.

Traumatizing, honestly we had an awful experience. Were treated with no respect and even laughed at by the assistant principal. All the while we treated them properly and although it hurt us we gave them respect they did not deserve
