    This school has surpassed our expectations because of the dedication of the staff and teachers. Both of our sons enjoy going to school there each day and as parents we are delighted. The PTA and the other parents are all very hands on and dedicated to making all the kids have a great educational and recreational experience. All around this school is an example of how the educational system and community can come together and be pro active in having a great grammar school experience for kids from grades K-5

    I think that the teachers and new principal of LHS are fantastic. The guidance counselor teachers secretary's were supportive to both my children through a very difficult time. Lake Hiawatha School not only educate's our children to the highest level but they also teach our children to care and to respect all. In a nut shell LHS not only educates but it brings up children of the future. WAY TO GO LAKE HIAWATHA SCHOOL!!

    This school is great ! We had heard good reviews about the school and we decided to buy a house right in the neighbourhood. We are glad that we made the right decision. The principal is excellent and always available. Kindergarten treachers and Pre K teachers are excellent and my friends with older kids are all praise for their respective teachers. PTA events are fun. Way to go LK Hiawatha Elemantary school.
