Lark Ellen Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

I agree with the previous reviewer in regards to all children can learn at high levels.  Then, there is the bullying that goes un-noticed by the staff, until the child that is being bullied comes out of their silence to plea for help.  Children with disabilities are not helped as they should, when the parent approaches the teacher for help, instead the parent is blamed and scrutinized.So much for parent teacher partnerships.  There is a lack of trust in children's ability to learn, as well as, a lack of empathy toward their students and parents.  Teacher's are not reflective of their teaching practices, or willing to meet the parent halfways without judgment.   Just sad, ready to pull my second child from the school district, as we had to in the past with our older child.

By a Parent on

I think it is a shame that a school such as Lark Ellen has such
dismal test scores.  When one visits the school, it is evidient
that some of the teachers do not believe "all children can learn at high levels".  I blame the leadership of Lark Ellen for the majority of the problems.  This school schould be a
high performing school, instead it is a school on the brink of PI.
