    I cannot say enough about the teachers and staff at Lehigh. They are very tentive to the students and are willing to put in the extra time and attention to any child having difficulties. They all seem to really care about their jobs and the kids. I would just like to thank them all for doing a wonderful job.

    I cannot speak more highly than for the amount of enthusiasm and caring that has been given to each of my children throughout their education at Lehigh. The foundation for their life's learning is greatly due to their positive experiences at Lehigh. In first grade my son needed help. A team of 7 people including the principal brainstormed in motivating my son to read. He now achieves Honor Roll in high school. Learning has come easy to my daughter who now attends Moravian College (studying Elementary Education which speaks for itself). Lehigh motivated her to achieve her potential through recognition and 'fun'. She has been fortunate to receive merit scholarships to help her reach her dreams. I now have two more children that will soon be attending Lehigh. I have complete confidence in their early education. Thank You All and Mr. Connor as you have made it possible.
