    Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this school. There are some teachers who do care about the students but the students have a huge discipline problem and don't pay attention in class. Other teachers simply don't care and don't put the effort to teach.

    Little River needs to be a behaviorial modification institution rather than an institution of learning. Teachers are not concerned.The Principal also doesn't care.

  • (9 years ago)

    There needs to be more parental involvement

  • (9 years ago)

    There has never been a more committed group of administrators and teachers than those at Little River Elementary. Unfortunately parent involvement has always been at a low level and as long as it is this school will not be able to make the grade.
