    "We have been part of the Lenart community for the past couple years and we are loving that decision. We are kindly greeted and everyone knows my child by name (perks of a small school). We were fearful that attending this school was going deprive our child of a childhood, but it's a perfect balance (even with the commute & longer school day). My child enjoys this school and is challenged...he knows no other way. For those reviews complaining about the administration; that was the old. The new admin team started this year and has set even higher goals...continuing to make this school one of the best in the state of IL. Very pleased with where they want to take the school and how they continue to educate their teachers on how to differentiate instruction and make their practice even better. I too was concerned about the no recess, but now YES THEY HAVE RECESS! We have no doubt our child is receiving the best education! Before this we sent our child to a private school and the curriculum does even come close to that of Lenart's."

    "My daughter has attended Lenart for 3 years & is an honor roll student; I am considering removing her. The school is wonderful academically in that the kids work at their level & are kept interested. My two greatest complaints are that the admin is horrible & the kids are spoiled. The atmosphere & administration of the past several years has not been very welcoming to parents. I hope with the change in principal there will be a shift in attitudes towards all parents. I hope that we are all welcome even if we are not the Parent Club president or Friend of Lenart Chair. As parents, we all should have pride in our kids and wish them nothing but the best, but there is a difference between setting our kids up with unrealistic expectations and preparing them for the future. I've heard several teachers and administrators tell our kids that they are "the best of the best," "future doctors, lawyers, judges," "the smartests kids around..." etc. What happens when that kid reaches their first obstacle? What happens when that kid actually wants to be a starving artist? What happens when that kid interacts with kids from other schools who are not up to their level?"

    "There is a very strong focus on academics and this school knows what it takes to motivate children to learn and accelerate. The teachers are outstanding. For the future, I hope there will be more time for recess and arts."

    "My son is entering first grade and we absolutely love Lenart! We have found the teachers, principal, assistant principal, and counselor to be extremely accessible, engaged, and dedicated to the students. It is an academically intense program but we have felt that our son has been very supported by everyone at the school. He can't wait for school to begin again this year!"

    "I have two children at Lenart. For the first time in their lives they are challenged and loving it. The children at Lenart are motivated and ambitious - they love to learn. Very few discipline problems, if any, as a result. We love the fact they are learning French and Latin. They work a solid two grade levels ahead, the pace is very accelerated. Don't apply if you child can't work at a very fast pace. Because of the fast paced environment parental involvement is really important and mandatory for your child to succeed. This does not mean that parents are doing all of the homework - what it means is that you have to be engaged with your child while they are doing homework and be available to answer questions about the instructions. The environment is nurturing, the front office staff is welcoming and lovely. The Principal is always around, and always talking to parents - she does not hide in her office like other schools that we have experienced. In fourth grade the children have departmentals so they move every period from one class to another. The Social Studies teacher is amazing - every teacher is excellent."
