    Lockwood elementary is a really bad school. Some teachers help the students n make themunderstand there class work n homework. the principle is very mean to children n she takes there snacks away n through them in the trash. school staffs are very rude to the parent n students. my son has even came home crying because a staff always bench him n dont let him play the staff has even threated my sons friend to stay away from my child if they do not want to get bench. ive gone to the school n talked to the principle to let her know about the problem but when the principle talks to the staff the staff always denies it n calls my son a liar n it makes my son cry. The principle never believed my son n believed the staff more . this school also never aware about the fight the kids get it. the kids always fight n bully other students n even beat them up n hurt them. I think Lockwood is by far the worst school n the staff should be fired for being rude with parents n students. the principle should be replaced by someone who understands and actually help with the problems n situations going on with there staffs n students.

    There is nothing extra at this school. Teachers are not readily available leave as the kids do. There are not extra curricular activities and the learning seems to be teacher centered and not on the students.

    It is a great school where all parents are welcomed. Students learning is taken very seriously. Teachers are credentialed and well prepared.

    The school relies totally on Open Court. The students seem to learn to read by the end of first grade. There doesn't seem to be any time for the arts. There is an after school program but very little in the form of 'enrichment'.
