    "My child finished k at Lin Howe last year. It was my child s first year at the school, and we all had a great experience. She learned a lot, had a wonderful teacher, and made some really nice friends among her classmates. It s our neighborhood school, and I was so glad she could walk to school, especially since she seemed to meet friends along the way quite frequently each week. Part of what I enjoyed a great deal was the community. The other parents were very warm, friendly, open, and not dismissive of parents who weren t able to volunteer during school hours. The teachers were very nice, and it seems like a well-run institution though of course much bigger than our preschool (so that was a little bit of an adjustment for me). We also had a good experience with the supplemental lessons as well as the great morning care / aftercare program offered by the Office of Child Development. Not a "holding tank" at all - the teachers worked out all kind of activities for the kids throughout the year."

    "Linwood Howe and all of the schools in Culver City have an excellent reputation--but, perhaps that set my expectations too high. The focus at Lin Howe seems more on the appearance of education rather than a holistic education that develops the strengths of individual students. This manifested itself in multiple ways. First, the principal always referred to herself by her title "Dr." which seemed somewhat off-putting. Her demeanor only underlined this. As a parent, I felt as if nothing I said or thought about my child's education mattered because I was not the expert. The teachers who pursued advanced degrees *during* the school year were praised. How can you successfully educate the individual students in your classroom when you're busy obtaining your own education? Finally, the emphasis on conforming to state standards seemed to come at the expense of working with the various learning styles and strengths of each student. Perhaps that is just what I should expect in the public school, but it was disappointing to experience at such a well-regarded school."

    "I love this school. The teachers are nurturing and really work with the children to ensure they are thriving in the classroom. I had my reservations about the current principal when she started as the former principal was excellent. Needless to say, this principal has been great as well, she is not as warm and nurturing as the former, but she is responsive to our concerns. Parent involvement is HUGE here. The PTA and boosters are very active and do a great job at fundraising."

    "The dedicated teachers and active families who volunteer and raise money for the school are the reasons why LinHowe has been a good experience for us. We have not been impressed with the current principal and her leadership. She has been on the job for over a year so one expects her to experience a learning curve. However, she is not on site a lot of times maybe because of ongoing training. She is pleasant enough but not warm and approachable. Without being specific to a couple of situations we encountered with her, she is very good at citing policy and not really trying to address a parent s concern. So while she has responded to our particular situation, her response and actions seem more reactionary to justify herself rather than fix the problem. My impression on her administrative and leadership skills leads me to believe that being principal of an elementary school is not her long-term plans. It s unfortunate, because she has a great opportunity to collaborate with the parents, and inspire and motivate her staff with true leadership. LinHowe will continue to be a good school because of the teachers and parents' support but it could be so much better with a good principal."

    "Linwood Howe is a great neighborhood school, but not average. First thing that springs to mind is COMMUNITY. This school has a tight knit community of families, who not only care about the school and the education their kids are receiving, but they care for each other s kids. We watch out for each other. On any given day, you can see most of the neighborhood kids and parents walking or biking to school together. To sum it up in only a paragraph is hard. The teachers at our school are phenomenal. Our programs include, art outreach, edible garden and nutrition, Green Team, Math Olympiads, the list goes on. The parents and staff at our school go beyond what's required to make sure our kids are supported in the classroom and after school through the programs offered at our school. It's truly a unique and special community here at Linwood Howe."
