    At the summer program offered at Lockhart Elementary Jana researched butterflies and their habitats created a schematic and built a certified butterfly garden. Each day she shared all kinds of details about her new experiences. In the classroom she engaged in discussions that made it possible for her to reflect and make comparisons. This was excellent opportunity for her to be creative and exercise critical thinking skills in a real situation. She is very excited about starting her school year at Lockhart Elementary and I can't wait to hear about her new adventures. I am thankful for the teachers and staff members that made this program possible. I truly believe that programs like this are springboards to academic success. This program was empowering her as an independent learner. I am so very grateful!

    Lockhart Creative Science Centre provides opportunities for students to problem solve to engineer the future. The outdoor science labs are amazing. Students learn how to compost build and maintain a butterfly garden and grow plants in a hydroponics garden.

    I love this school and their extracuricular activities. My kids have been in this school for their kindergarten year.

    The academic quality of this school appears very low pulling students mostly from the surrounding lower socioeconomic community. The faculty and administrators are very friendly. The scope and variety of extracurricular activities is phenomenal--including violin dance singing art Latin Spanish steel drums etc... Overall I give the school very high marks for creating a varied extracurricular environment and friendly atmosphere however the academics are lacking because it appears the teachers must teach to the lowest common denominator. Personally I like the personal attention my child receives therefore I'd endorse this school.

    teachers are nice too many kids behind so that the kids who are on tract are not pushed to their potential. a lot of out of control kids at this school... practically no parent involvement

    Acdemics seem to be ok. My dd teacher is very involved and accessible. Great oppurtunities for xtra curricular activities but has very low parental involovement and seems somewhat disorganized. Principal is nice and friendly with parents and students.

    I beleive this is a wonderful school as far as student interaction and teacher participation. My child use to be shy but he has really opened up to the point where he's playing two instruments and loves to write. I also love the fact that they kep us informed with what's going on I usually receive information everyday about different school events and their at different times so working parents do get an opportunity to attend. Last but not least the staff is excellent. I always know what's going on with my child and if I have questions or concerns someone is always available to assist me. On a scale of 1 - 10 academics they get an 8 and extracurricular activities they get a 10 parent involvement a 7. An overall rating for this schoo; I give them a 9. I am really impressed and grateful he is a student.

    For this to be a performing arts school I was not pleased at all with the performances given this year. They could've been a lot better. My daughter was in two and they were not all that great. Also when choosing this school one should be very mindful of the low socioeconomic environment that this school is located in. There was a lot of 'drama' and gossip going on between my daughter and her peers and I don't feel that my daughter learned as much as she can academically. Rather she learned a lot about how to deal with the hard-knocks and ways to defend herself. I would not recommend this school to anyone who is serious about their child's education.
