    I have had 2 other children attend this school with very little problems they were both mainstream students my son now attends. He is an ESE student he had a learning disability not a behavior problem. I'm really not happy with the way this school has treated my child middle school is heard enough without having a learning disability and this school does not help him when he's frustrated. We've tried to work it out but I'm not happy. If you have an ESE student find a different school.

    Exc staff and school. Our granddaughter started here last Oct from school up north and we are very pleased with schools curriculum and staff not to mention all the extra curricular clubs. By the way our granddaughter got all A's! Keep up the good work and our thanks to faculty.

    I have two children who attend this school. This is their first year attending LA Ainger as a 6th grader and 7th grader. Overall they have both had a positive experience thus far. My 7th grader is in TAG (Talented & Gifted) program and it is an AWESOME program bottom line. For the most part the TAG program and mainstream program have exceeded my expectations as former educator and mother with a Masters Degree in Education. Most of the teachers seem to be kind professional and educated. My 6th grader was overwhelmed at first due to the size of the school coming from a small private elementary school. My 7th grader had a problem with bullying initially. He filled out the online bullying form and the vice principal was on it IMMEDIATELY. He continues to check in with me by phone and with my son about every few weeks. The bullying was handled appropriately with quick resolution student mediation and continued follow up. I feel like the faculty and administration care about my children.

    Great School. Most of the staff very helpful. Some problems with School Social Worker because of students illness (which were all documented with doctors notes) Other than that one staff member I have found office and teachers to be great.

    I think that Ainger is a great school! My son has been more excited about school since entering LA Ainger than he ever was before. He gets straight A's and loves all of his teachers that in itself must say something about the relationship these teachers share with their students. I say 'great job' to all the teachers at Ainger keep it up!

    I was very impressed with the way they wen out of there way with the children. My child had a problem getting good grades and was getting grades B-C-D-D-F so on. After her first year with them at a special class to help children {Smaller class size} she picked up her grades to A's a couple <B> and 1 <C>. I think this school is out to help the kids and not out to just get by the year. Rhonda Talsma
