There are some incredible teachers at this school. That being said, there are deep and serious issues with the administration.

Every child deserves this level of education. We have had stellar teachers in other schools but have never really experienced the feeling that the whole school was united in its commitment to its students. We are in our second year with LCS and every teacher, staff member, parent, and volunteer I have come into contact with is engaged; never have I witnessed outward complacency or dissatisfaction from the teachers I have been in contact with. On the contrary, many of my kids’ teachers have reached out to me personally to provide feedback about my children’s progress, showing that they genuinely care about MY kids! I love the open door policy at this school and the opportunity for weekly progress reports; I never have to wait for “report card time” to speak one-on-one with the teachers. My kids come home every day with a thirst for knowledge that seemed to be missing before and as a result, I find that we as parents are more engaged and feel more invested in their education. When teachers have a passion for what they teach like the teachers at LCS do, it benefits the kids in every way…their passion is contagious!! Without writing a book, here are some other words I would use to describe LCS and its staff: Safe, Innovative, Engaged, Passionate, Smart, Team-oriented, Accountable, Organized, and Genuine. This is an incredible school and we are more than blessed to be a part of it.
This school is AMAZING!!! At our old school, my kids were obsessed with who liked who. At LCS they are interested in history, science, math and literature. It's cool to be smart! The teachers specialize in their subjects and their enthusiasm for it rubs off onto the students. Dinner table conversations converted from what they did at recess to what they learned! LCS is like a family that works together for the common good of the students. My kids are flourishing here and never want to return to their neighborhood school.
I cannot say enough about how much this school has benefited our family. Each of my kids has grown in maturity, character, and academics since attending LCS. The teachers are generous, kind, and are excellent educators! As the school gets older, it is constantly improving. I am so thankful that Loveland families have LCS as a choice, and I highly recommend it!
I have had many experiences with this school on levels of education, electives and administration. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND no one attend this institution. The leadership is illusive, wrongly biased and impossible to work with. The middle and upper school programs try to exceed district standards, but lack the ability to lead well with all students. If you have a struggling learner ON ANY LEVEL do not attempt this school. I found this to be a school not ment for any child.
LCS is a great school. What makes it different than local/other charter schools is the staff and academic standards. As a parent of several kids at this school, I sleep well knowing they are challenged to achieve while given an environment that allows my kids to grow. All this is done in an environment that is safe, behavioral expectations are also big here. There is a dress code (not uniforms, just guidelines). My wife and I are both very happy with LCS and the education that our kids are receiving.
The teachers at LCS have really inspired my children to WANT to learn and strive for excellence. Even at their young age they recognize they are getting a better quality education at LCS than they did at their old school.
