    We just moved to the area and school year started about 3 weeks ago but it is not early to say that my 2 kids are really glad with their 1st and 3rd grade teachers at LE. Principal also seems to be very nice and professional. The only problem but unfortunately it seems to be too common in many schools and medical offices around here is the rude and arrogant secretary staff as another parent has mentioned.

    This school has been amazing with my son. he has oppositional defiancy disorder or ODD. it really takes a toll on every day life and I was very worried about sending him to school. Luckily they had all day K with an amazing teacher who kept in a constant contact with me about how to work with my child. He is now in first grade and just starting the school is already in contact with me about how to give my son the best advantage this year. The missing star is the secretary staff they are a bit stuck up and rude a lot of the time when you go in the school.

    Very disappointed in this school. Teachers seem to have to much going on and are not prepared no sense of community. The cliques among the parents is horrible and the disrespect among the students was astounding. My son in second grade hates going to school

    This school is filled with dedicated Academic Professionals committed to the success of all the children. As the Parent of a 'special needs student' I am delighted and quite frankly amazed at the progress my son has made both academically and socially. His skills are on grade level and he's happy. Only those who truly care could apply the amount of patience and understanding it takes to manage a boy like my son to success the way his teacher's and counselors have year after year. I once thought 'Please God just let him graduate from High School'. Now he talks about becoming an Engineer.

    There is no feeling of community bad teachers hang around forever and there is so much focus on silly extras that nothing really gets done. Do you want your fifth grader saying the name of private parts out loud to 'de-mystify' the words?!! I think not.

    This school has a fantastic academic program with all the latest technology involving communication and broadcasting systems. The teachers are young and energetic and the enrichment program for gifted students is top notch. Both of my children went through this elementary school with nothing but rave reviews about their classes and their teachers.
