    "My child has had a great year in Kindergarten at Lenart so far. The teacher, who is new to the school this year, is wonderful. The administration is professional and quick to respond to my questions or concerns. I volunteer at the school often and have seen nothing but professionalism amongst the staff. There is great parental involvement in my child's class, although I think there could be more involvement from parents in the upper grades. Overall, we are very pleased with this small school of bright, well behaved children."

    "Continuing of lenart... Teachers each have their own personalities and teaching styles, with some being more effective teachers than others. The music department only has one "Do-it-all" guy. yes, he does a good job in placing in competitions but when it comes down to learning the fundamentals of music, he falls FLAT (lol). He manages many different bands and a choir, but he seems to favor some over the others. he isn't exactly the nicest person, but he does do A LOT for Lenart. The science teacher has been given the duty to teach boht science and social studies. she is a excellent science teacher, often teaching things above and beyond the textbook, but has to in a way, trim down her usual work to be able to cope with teaching 3 grade levels, two subjects. The math teacher...she's something. you learn to love her, if she doesn't like you, then you're kinda stuck. she teaches math well, but when I was in her class I sorta just learned something and then forgot it after the test. that's kinda why i'm re-taking algebra. She does help you, as long as you take the initiative to come speak to her, which is really smart, since that is what high school is revolved around, self-initiative."

    "I was very optimistic about Lenart, but find that the teachers lack enthusiasm and the curriculum is uninspiring. I wish I saw the kids more excited about learning - as gifted students, there should be MANY MORE opportunities to showcase their talents outside the traditional classroom, as well as to gain leadership experience."

    "Lenart Elementary is an Excellent school, if you want your child to be taught the fundamentals and NOT drilled just for test taking purposes Lenart is the place. The Principal, teachers, and parents are all about the students and ensuring they receive the best fundamental education. My daughters thirst for knowledge is being sated and challenged and I have learned some new things from her along the way. The school is very culturally diverse which is another plus in my opinion. Lenart can and will improve just like other schools with more funding. I have found the Principal to be very open to any and all suggestions regarding improving the school on all levels. This is a new year and my family is looking forward to the new journey this school year will bring."

    "Is the new principal good for Lenart, that remains in the balance. The new principal last year (2012) created a power point presentation about Lenarts performance over the past 5 years or so. She stated our scores could be better. She said that the exiting principal and assistant principal did a good job, but the results could be higher. When a new principal with no experience in gifted teaching or leading a school of gifted students brings out a power point presentation with statistics, she will now be watched closely by many Lenart parents regarding performance. How can a someone who has not been at Lenart know how the school functions? The last time I checked, Lenart is in the Top 6 elementary schools in the state for more than 7 years and its only GOOD. So what is her goal? Since her start 2012, no Science Fairs, Speech Fairs, and other events to recognize Lenart students. She is changing things when they were working well. Lastly, she is not approachable in comparison to the last principal. Some parents have discussed that when they enter the main office, she makes eye contact from her desk, and does not acknowledge them. Oops, she is a principal. So far, no stats for 2013."
