I`ve had two children at Lees Corner and have had nothing but positive experiences. The office staff are always friendly and helpful. The teachers have all been wonderful and open to communicating if we have any concerns.

I've had two children in the school and they have been wonderful. Both my children have IEPs and the school and staff have been very helpful and accommodating to their needs. I am able to go to the teachers and communicate any concerns I have (they are few and far between) and the problem is always resolved promptly.

There aren't many programs for you to join in. There is strings for 4th grade and up, band for 5th grade and up, and 5th and 6th grade chorus. There is also mad science, French club, chess club, and girls on the run in the afternoons near the middle of the year. Not many awards I remember...

Our son was moved back and forth between the "normal" and "special education" classes until they finally decided he did not qualify for "extra services". The teachers were ok but the support staff was terrible. They had little to no training or education and had a very uncaring attitude (Kathy, Maida).
