    I go to louis agassiz.I am going to the sixth grade.Louis agaasiz school is a very good school.I think most people say it is a good school wich it is.The princepal their is Christine Hericks.I have been going here for four years the better you are the more you learn.This way you can get higher test scores. If you get higher test scores you start to become to understand things like exponets algebra things like that.I personaly think that some people understand things more because of the princepal.And sometimes if we have snow days they cancel school and if they cancel scholl thats extra days of school so we can make them up.MY NAME IS JORGE CORTES AND IM A SIXTH GRADER AND THATS MY REPORT

    I strongly recommend that parents send their children to this school. Students thrive academically and socially. Teachers exceed my expectations. They are here before and after school to tutor kids and help if someone is struggling with schoolwork. My children have full rides to Ohio State through a scholarship program offered at this school. I thank the teachers and staff at Louis Agassiz. It is simply amazing. It is a small school so everyone knows everyone here. The people are all friendly including students and teachers. There is nothing negative I can say about this school. It's a 10! There's a bilingual program as well as a program for special education. According to my kids the lunches are actually pretty good! Parents are also kept informed through newsletters and school wide events. Sending your children here guarantees that they will get a quality education and will have successful futures.

    I am a student at Louis Agassiz. It is a wonderful school with the best teachers I've ever had. They care about every student and put a lot of effort in teaching. The classes are fun and innovative and we have several programs here that help prepare us for life. I would definitely send my children to this school!

    I am a teacher who has been with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District for over 11 years. Louis Agassiz School is the most caring and best school I have ever worked in. They are totally focused around the best education and development of each student and provide many programs and activities to reach that goal. If the building was in better shape it would be even better than it is already.

    Hello. I am a former student of this great american public school. It has been and continues to be a shining example of what a fine public elementary school should be. I am very fortunate that two of my children are currently able to attend this community treasure. Louis Agassiz school has a 78 year heritage of excellence where thousands of neighborhood children began their road to further education. I first entered the building when I was 5 years old. I am still proud and overcome with emotion when I enter it until this very day A school is more than a building it is the spirit the caring staff over the years that have made the legacy and the legend more than just average it excels where many other schools in the system have failed. This community will support our beloved school for many years to come!
