    "This is a reply to the last poster. We are getting together as a community to address the concerns we have with this school soon and especially the teachers. I wish I had your phone number as I would call you. Yes this school did extend the school year. It was a last ditch effort to save face!! Most of the qualified instructors left for more lucrative positions leaving the less qualified or bottom of the barrel teachers to somehow teach our kids. The reason why a lot of teachers left is because they were not adequately compensated for working extra school days when the school year was extended. The less confident and struggling teachers are trying to somehow manage their classrooms. Home schooling is an option or a move to a better area with more experienced teachers. I wish that the district could somehow inform us in a way that ensures us that these teachers are getting some help in their classrooms. The teachers are the issue !!! Some just need to resign !!"

    "Teachers appear to be the biggest issue. Some are left over from the hiring epidemic when there was a severe teacher shortage. Then, mostly young teachers with little or no life experiences were given the chance to teach our precious children. Some of these teachers have little information about the culture of students who live in that area. If fact, very few teachers actually reside in the community where they work. Do you really think they care about the children's performance? Most are waiting for the Christmas vacation coming!!"

    "We're considering homeschooling our children if we cannot get them into another district on a variance or sell our house and move to another district. Yes, that's correct- we are willing to move just to avoid sending our children to this awful district. The teachers are apathetic, the curriculum is lacking and the geniuses (note the sarcasm) in administration extended the school year thinking that would actually improve things somehow. The school year starts in JULY. It's ridiculous. Why not take a look at better districts in the valley (such as Peoria or Kyrene or one of the many others which are WAY ahead of Littleton) and model changes after those obviously successful programs?! I also suspect that one of the positive reviews here was written by teacher at Littleton. A neighbor who's had more experience with this teacher thought the same. It's sad that the teachers and administration have to stoop so low to try to save the school's reputation. Get off GreatSchools.org and try to be BETTER at your jobs!"

    "In reviewing AIMS scores from 2012 to 2013, students grew in 8 out of 12 areas in 3rd - 8th grade reading and math. The average scores are below state averages, but have steadily caught up the last 5 years. Our kids are making excellent progress and we are so proud of them!"

    "My child has attended this school since second grade, upon entering the 6th grade this year we had the option to move him to another school in the district and he wanted to stay here! I truly believe this is due in part because of the new administration and how awesome they are! The PTA is also rocking it this year, from a fun fall festival to fundraising to help the students, this has been a great year! The 6th grade team of teachers is awesome! My child has never shown such a high interest in school, all 3 ladies are fabulous! We do need more parent support, so hopefully with the leaps and bounds in changes more will get involved! Keep up the great work LE teachers, admins, PTA and students! I love all the opportunity the school presents to encourage the parents to be involved in their child's education."
