    "Lester is a top notch school because of its dedicated teachers, staff and involved families. We have been so pleased for the past five years and are looking forward to the next few years at Lester. Every teacher has been so caring! Communication is great! The PTA is wonderful and there are so many ways to get involved!"

    "I have been a Lester parent for 6 years. The teachers my child has had have been caring and have gone above and beyond to make him a better student. Lester has great parental support. This school has an extremely active PTA , with their fund raising they try to fill the needs of the school that the district can't. Everyone is very welcoming and makes you feel included. I couldn't imagine my kids going anywhere else."

    "I have been a Lester parent for five years and each year I am more impressed with the expertise and dedication of the teachers and staff. Our lower elementary teachers are exceptional - integrating technology through our 1:1 ipad program that is truly amazing. And our higher elementary teachers really look to engage the kids and prepare them for middle school. Our PTA is also amazing, providing programs and events to build the Lester community and continually add value to our kids education."

    "my kids have been going to Lester for 2yrs, and i must say the teachers are good At teaching, but in denial about bullying, there is a lot of bullying going on, and a lot of denial, about that, there has to be more structure, and listening to bully complaints, also a lot of the mothers group together and exclude others, not very welcoming...."
