Community ratings & reviews

  • (5 years ago)

    lipsey is a very great school in every way especially the fifth grade science program

  • (7 years ago)

    Parent/Teacher communication seems to be poor. There is not an inviting feeling when entering this school. Bathrooms have no locks on stalls. Library seems to have poor selections.

  • (10 years ago)

    The staff at this school is wonderful.
