Community ratings & reviews

  • (1 year ago)

    Overall I'm quite disappointed. The "specials" PE Art Gifted Program principal leadership all need improvement. Lots of favoritism.

  • (4 years ago)

    I love this school. There is a garden which was started by some wonderful parents and the veggies supply the salad bar in the cafeteria. Just a great small community school.

    We have two children at Lyons. Both adore their teachers and their reading and comprehension has shot up in this year. We are pleased with the strong sense of community here in Lyons and it reflects in the school.
