    Lupine Hills Elementary is understaffed and parents aren't encouraged to participate if they complain. There are about 100 children being "supervised" by 3 staff members during lunch and recess. Fights break out children are bullied in the bathrooms and staff doesn't see it. Don't send your children to Lupine Hills Elementary unless you plan to be there constantly.

    My three daughters have been attending to this school since 2008. I very happy and proud of this school. The principal and teachers are very comitted to children safety and education. I can reach the teachers anytime by phone or e-mail knowing that they will get to me whithin that day.

    This school is very safe. They have before and after school supervision for the children. The PTA gives a lot of support to the school.

    My daughter loves it here! I think they have great leadership and diversity. I feel it is also a safe environment and her teachers have been wonderful! I wish they had an after school program in part I think they don't because they have a child care center next door other than that its a great school.

    I like this school because they encourage parents teachers and kids to work together. My son just graduated from this school last year and he still can be in contact with his fifth grader teacher for any question. My daughter a third grader she is really happy with her teacher and I'm so satisfied with the academic level. I'm a PTA member at this school so a really know at some point how this school works.
