School Reviews

5  
We moved to Line Creek in Fall 2013, so have had a year and a half in the system after moving from out of state (from a newer, 9/10-graded GreatSchools.org elementary.) I'd have to say Line Creek leaves that other school in the dust. We loved the previous school and were very involved there as parents (as we are at LC), but didn't know what we were missing. Line Creek offers diversity, has a great group of teachers who CARE about their students, and a wealth of after-school clubs and activities that no one forces them to do -- the teachers want to do them. My kids are definitely more well-rounded and have much more of a community mindset, and are better off having attended Line Creek.
