    I love Lockhart Elementary! My children have been going here for 2 years and and they love this school and teachers Today they even had to go to school on Saturday and were so excited. Excited on a Saturday!!! They must be doing something right. The principal is very friendly and listens to parents. Teachers really have helped my children especially our middle child who had difficulties with learning to read.

    We love Lockhart. My son has done very well there for the last 3 years and the teachers are excellent. It is truly a school family. The PTA is very active and the teachers readily welcome parent involvement in the classroom.

    Yes I am speaking about the special needs teacher that is there now and my child was never in "daycare" my child has been in a couple other PUBLIC schools for pre-k in the past and there was always information sent home on the progress of your child. This is not just for pre-k either there are many kindergarten teachers from schools all over Wake County that send home weekly or daily updates for parents. This is a special needs pre-k class therefore it shouldn't be set up like any typical daycare or pre-k class there should be more information sent home to notify parents of their child's progress. Any concerned parent would completely agree. Since I have experienced great teachers with my daughter in the past I have my standards set high if you think that this teacher is amazing then you are really missing out. My daughter has progressed through this year as well but there is something wrong when you go to the teacher with comments/concerns and those concerns get completely ignored. The principal did address my concerns and I am glad that I went to her with them otherwise I would still be competely upset with this school.

    To the person who posted below me...There is no way you are speaking of the special education teacher that is there now because she is an absolute wonderful teacher. My daughter was with her last year and she has been at the Pre-K program 1.5 years previously. Last year was the absolute best year ever she has had and grew so much from her. When a child gets moved from a daycare to a PUBLIC pre-k...It is not treated as a daycare its treated as getting your child prepared for public school hence the reason there is no daily/weekly notes...It is getting you prepared as well which it seems as this is your first child or you would know how WCPSS works. I'm sorry you feel that way about Lockhart and the special needs teacher but you are dead wrong on this one. This is a wonderful school and the best teacher you could ever ask for.

    This is a great school. Very welcoming to the children and parents. Excellent Principal staff and teachers. We love the year round schedule. We came from another Wake school(magnet) that was not like this and are Very pleased with Lockhart. Basics and individual child development is important to the teachers and it shows.

    I'm a father of 2 kids that have attended Lockhart since we moved here 3 years ago. GREAT school. GREAT teachers. GREAT principals. GREAT environment. My wife & I have gotten to personally know each teacher taking care of our kids and they are all great. Because of reassignment it looks like we're going to have to take our kids out of this school and I don't know what we'll tell them. It will be very tough on us parents because we love Lockhart.

    Lockhart is a wonderful school. Their special education department is the best. They really know how to take care of their students.

    My family and I recently moved from New Jersey and found Lockhart to be the school we were hoping to find. My daughter is in third grade and needed help with her math and reading. Lockhart's teachers has programs in place to help students like my daughter to accelerate with individual or small group classes. In addition there is a after school tutorial progam for third and fourth grades. The teachers and principal really care about the success of the students.I am very pleased.

    Best school ever. I have three children and all three have attended Lockhart. Two of them still still do. My two oldest children have attended other schools and none have compared to Lockhart. The teachers are so dedicated and caring office staff is always so helpful and the school and grounds are kept up beautifully. By far Lockhart is the best school me or my children have ever attended. Yes I was a Lochart student too. It was a wonderful experience for me and has been for my children. Lockhart is truly and exceptional school.
