    Lorane Elementary has done wonderful things for my child in her 4 years attending! The teachers have been more than willing to help when extra help was needed and were always keeping my daughter's learning as their highest priority. The principal is more than helpful and seems to be respected by the staff. The support staff (speech reading) are excellent too and very willing to help and provide extra guidance when needed/requested. The Parent organization is very involved in the school and supports many school activities. I am very happy with our experience at Lorane Elementary school!

    This School is The worst school my kids have ever attended! If you are planing to move to the area make sure your kids are not attending this school. I have a a lot of reasons why but I would like to stay anonymous. Plus I don't have the space in this review to write everything that happen. I'm paying higher taxes for no reason!

    This school has absolutely no understanding or patience for the student with special needs or special education needs. It is evident in each interaction with teachers who teach regular education and subjects. There is no specializing the education to the needs of the student and special education students are penalized using a card system with little regard given to the IEP. We are moving out of the district and would never recommend our experience here to the family of any other special needs student.

    Lorane elementary is perfect! Our daughter loves school - we attribute that to the fact that she is so happy with her teachers. They really take the time to make sure the kids are learning. Teacher conferences are a pleasure. Great job Lorane!
