    This school draws concern about my Daughter and her safety. I would like the principal to call the authorities because she has said that she is emotionally stressed and it reflects her concentration for education. Father is embarrassing and bribes her. My daughter is very smart and she use to love school. She wishes to go back in the Magnet Program. All I hear is school can't write me a letter to notify/remind me about my child threatening to run away from her DAD or harm herself. I will always have open arms for my children. I would like the option to help her. Because of a restraining order from Her father's girlfriend I cannot even go to her school because they call the police to get me arrested all in front of a 10 & 11 year old girls.

    A hidden gem in the San Fernando Valley. We are so fortunate to have teachers who really care. They all work very hard to reach EVERY child. The principal and administrators are first rate. Students at this little school are successful. The only way to explain it is that everyone is part of this award-winning team-- the kids the staff members and the parents.

    I have had children at this school for the last 5 years and each year the school gets better and better. Each teacher my children have had strives for nothing but excellence. My children have made great progress through their years. I always feel welcome at the school and the staff is always striving to do what they can to support the students and parents. I look forward to my youngest finishing her years at this school.

    My son just started Kindergarten here and he loves it. He's in Miss Estrada's class. She's a new teacher and I think she is doing wonderfully. The school has really good parent participation and all the staff members interacting with the children seem very sweet. My son also goes to the creative kids after school program at the school. They help him with homework and reading and give him a snack. The only complaint I had about that program is that I wasn't notified there were limited spaces when my son started school so he couldn't get into the program for a couple of weeks. Not easy for working parents. Sign up early. The new principal seems very committed and works very hard. The school also has a gigantic yard that is really well maintained and lots of fun murals all over every building.

    My son has been here since Kinder and will be in third grade this fall. We've had the great good fortune to have had the most amazing principal in Laurie Davis for the last two years. We will be losing her this fall and I can only hope with all my heart that her replacement can do all her good work justice. Her impact on our school communitee was priceless and she will be sorely missed.

    Lemay has been a wonderful experience for my Kindergardener. It is a small school on a big campus (with trees and grass). It has outstanding kindergarden teachers and support staff. The kids that attend Lemay are polite and helpful. My child is learning a lot and having fun at the same time. In addition they have a year round music program P.E. program and a state of the art computer lab. So far it has been a wonderful experience.

    I am a parent of a 1st grader. I loved the small classes 17 kids in my childs. A BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL the teachers were consciencious and I really appreciated the parental course given by a grade level teacher on how to help my child to meet class objectives complete homework and to what to expect for the whole school year at an early part of the school year. It got me more involved in the success of my child's academics. Expectations are set higher than normal LAUSD requirements which the children seem to meet with good old fashion hard work. I applaud the school's efforts and for being a CA Distinguished School AND a BLUE RIBBON WINNER.

    I believe that Lemay is a great school for any family with children in grades Kindergarten through 3rd grade. They are treating the children in the older classes as though they are in a prison with no creative explaination for how to play together happily how to succeed in social circles and how to successfuly navigate difficult social situations. The Teachers are very good in the lower grades but as the kids get older it seems as though the quality has totally slipped.

    This is a great school! It has small classes teachers who are committed to their students and families and has a beautiful campus. It is safe my child plays after school on the playground with a wonderful and patient coach or inside the brand new library. The school is clean and the staff are considerate when encouraging students to maintain their school with pride. It has many programs events and opportunities for parents to become involved. I have been so impressed with the quality of instruction art activities the music program and the communication between the school and families. It is a nice place to send your child. We are very happy with our child's educational experiences so far at Lemay.

    The school staff are very involved in the children's learning. Our children have been attending since K and are now in grades 1st 2nd and 3rd. The school field trips are valuable learning experiences; the computer lab is high tech; there is a homework club; after school sports and activities with adult supervision; and fun programs throughout the school year. One drawback however is this school is not equipped to deal with children with ADHD and other social disorders. Therefore they give the parents grief about their children's out of the ordinary habits or methods. Overall we have had good experiences with the teachers and school adminsitrators and this school has a high level of academic success for each student. They really stress learning and the environment is conducive to fun learning. There are music sports arts dance and cultural activities. Parents are invited to participate with students at any time.

    Lemay has been a great school. My daughter went to the Lemay Children's Center attached to the school from the time she was three years old until 2nd grade. When she started 1st grade the aids would walk her over to the Elemenary school and then pick her up after. I am very thankful for this program. It helped her develop social skills early. She has just graduated 5th grade and will definately remember all of the good times at Lemay. She will be back in 2026 to see the time capsul opened! I highly recomend Lemay Street Elementary School. The teachers were great. The after-school coaches were very reliable and a good infuence. There is also a music program.
