I cannot say enough good things about the principal. On our daughter's first day, he got down on one knee to speak to her face to face (I haven't seen a principal do that before, so I must admit it impressed me) asking her where she was from and what she liked to do (intense conversation about building snowmen since we are from a state with no snow). Since then, any concerns we raised or help we needed were immediately considered with empathy and solutions were found. The whole school has a positive vibe from teachers to office staff, which, I believe, comes from him. Everyone is so friendly and positive. It seems to be the oasis in the nine mile school district desert. The other district principals could learn a thing or two from this man. He is a great leader and an excellent example for his staff and the students.

We moved here before school started and had high hopes for this school district, what a disappointment. The lack of communication is ridiculous. If you are moving here and your child is switching to this school don't expect them to make any effort to help your child adjust. My child has been crying when she gets home and doesnt even want to go to school anymore, I found out from her sibling that she has been crying at school to. Her teacher has never contacted me to let me know about any of this. As soon as I found out I tried contacting her teacher via phone and email (I also emailed the principle) and neither have bothered to call me or email me back. I would think her teacher would have at least made me aware of my child having break downs at school. Its ridiculous!!!

Great school as long as your child is not in special ed. They want every special ed kid to be taught in the same way and have them each learn in the same way. HELLO?? Special ed?? Pulled my son out after the second year of pulling my hair out and getting no where. Great principal--too bad he can't do anything to get the special ed dept to change. Some teachers are GREAT, too bad they aren't allowed t teach the children in the manner they know will work if its outside the box--oh boy, do they get in trouble for that! Very sad experience, waste of time, lost academic ground.

We love LSE! The teachers are fantastic and the entire staff is like family! We love the fact that many of the faculty are members of our own community, it really makes us feel like we are more than just students and parents, we are friends and neighbors.
