    "We love this school! Mrs. Shaver (principal) is excellent! She is welcoming, warm and approachable. She creates a wonderful environment in which students feel cared about and parents feel comfortable. You'll see her on the playground, out front at pick-up, drop-off and in the classrooms. She comes to many (if not all) of the after school events. She is very involved and dedicated. The PTO is amazing! The school has a STEM emphasis - which we really enjoy! LMES offers specials - music, art, gym. Technology is important - iPads are in every classroom. There is a large computer lab. The school teaches Mandarin starting in kindergarten. The library has a dedicated librarian. Parents are active in the school. You'll see several parents volunteering on any given day. The campus is great! The school is entirely fenced-in with a great central lawn, playground equipment and a mini out-door stage (as well as an indoor stage). Kinder is slightly separated from the rest of the campus, which makes it feel more comforting to the little ones. The culture is happy, inviting and loving. Students are taught to be caring and kind toward each other. I highly recommend this school!"

    "This is our first year at LMES. My child felt welcomed from the first day. Mrs. Shavers strives to get to know each child and make herself accessible if there is a problem. Her assistant Ms. Lori is friendly and very helpful. This school does their best depite ongoing, looming budget cuts. Many parent volunteers give countless hours on student events and fund raising. I do wish that the academic bar was set higher but I understand there is only so much that can be done with a dwindling budget."

    "Lone Mountain is simply a great school. The atmosphere is open and caring and the kids seem to thrive on it. The staff is all available to help or lend an ear if there's ever any concerns and the Principal is AWESOME! They regularly have parent student events that allow parents to get to know one another and that strengthens the school community in my opinion. The facilities are clean, secure, and well laid out. The lunches are healthy, the aftercare programs are great. Our experience there in 3 years has been great. I'd recommend anyone looking for a great school check it out."

    "This school has issues. Bullying being the #1 problem. They don't reprimand the kids that do it, but reprimand those that defend themselves. They allow verbal bullying to occur on a daily basis with no consequences. There are a few good teachers but the majority are burned out and its just a paycheck. They don't care about the kids or deal with the issues surrounding the kids that are mean. They allow sick children with fevers constantly, don't allow kids to go home sick. Parents are not friendly, new kids are not accepted, they are picked on with no assistance from administration. We left this school as it was not a fit for us."

    "I have had two children attend LMES and cannot say enough good things about this school. The principal is wonderful and provides strong leadership. The teachers really care about the children and their learning and go above and beyond on a daily basis. LMES is a STEM school with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Teachers incorporate hands on learning and the use of 21st century technology into their daily lessons. The principal, teachers, parents and students form a strong, caring community which we ve been fortunate to have been a part of for the past 7 years. I would highly recommend this outstanding school!!"
