    "My daughter is attending this school for three years now. The general schooling environment is excellent. We are having great time communicating and dealing with the staff at school, and with the other parents. Eventhough we moved, and an elementary school is just a walking distance from the new home, we preferred leaving her at Lovett. However, the teachers are to concentrate more and help those young children, because there is still some potential, and they must exert some more effort. The previous principal was so energetic that it caused the current one my, relatively, low rating."

    "This looks like a wonderful school, but after touring, I am concerned that the GT classroom experience is significantly better than the regular one, and as I believe I am looking for a superior education for my "regular" child, I'm disappointed with this. The GT classroom was chock full of exciting learning opportunities while the regular classroom was very much toned down. For example, the GT student job board had something like ten differentiated classroom jobs for students to rotate through while the regular classroom had a "boy helper" and a "girl helper." This may seem like a silly detail, but it's the difference between a student-centered learning environment and a teacher-centered one - and that makes all the difference as far as I'm concerned as a parent and a teacher."

    "I love this school and Owl's Nest (tuition based PreK3, PK4) is top notch. Administration will bend over backwards for parents and students: staff knows students by name- even those in different grades. Academics are strong, and staff is supportive if a student is struggling. I'm a product of private school education and this school is better than some of the local private schools academically, socially (very nurturing), and artistically. Parent involvement is high, but not required. There is a strong sense of community. There is a decent amount of homework that reinforces the challenging class material. The G/T program teaches the same fundamental curriculum as non G/T, expectations are just higher(i.e. might cover it in a shorter amount of time or have 2 quizzes instead of 1). Spelling and vocab pre-tests allow your child to focus to more advanced items instead of spending all week studying for a test on material that they've already mastered. I highly recommend this school."

    "My son went to private school through middle school and suggested that my daughter go to our zoned school so that she would have friends living close by us. It was the best decision that we made to attend Lovett 2 1/2 years ago (my daughter is now in 2nd grade). We love all of the faculty and staff and believe that Mrs. Simson is an awesome and supportive Principal. The new building is beautiful and the Fine Arts department is the best. The PTO is very involved and parents are always encouraged to do as much (or as little) as you want."

    "My daughter came from a private school setting and entered Lovett as a Kinder student. She's in the GT program. We are not zoned to Lovett so we applied at 3 different schools that we thought were comparable and would meet the needs of our daughter. After lots of research and much prayer, we chose Lovett and have not been disappointed. The office staff is helpful & friendly; teachers (at least the Kindergarten ones) are dedicated and seem to be invested in each child, which is critical. The school does a good job of keeping parents involved and has a strong PTO. The fine arts program (orchestra, band & chorus) is a definite plus as well. I would say to any parent considering a school, do your research, ask existing parents questions and get involved (hands on). Our children spend so much time in school that it's imperative we are making good informed choices and I believe Lovett is one."
