I have two kids who go to school at Loretto, one in 1st and one in 4th. We have had an excellent experience there. We've had really good teachers plus the Resource (Computer, PE, Library, Art, etc.) teachers make it feel familial, too. It's not perfect, but the things I have a problem with are mostly district-based and outside of the school's control. Plus, nothing is perfect. Most of the teachers there genuinely care about the kids and educating. It's been more than a pleasant surprise, it's been a gift.

I love this school... My child attended Loretto and was very happy there. She was involved and engaged and learned so much. I loved the teachers the staff and even the other kids. I wished I would have known about Loretto when my two older were in elementary school!

I attended Loretto from kindergarten to fifth grade, and I enjoyed my time there. I now attend Landon and I feel that this school prepared me for everything. The teachers and staff are all devoted to helping you, and will help you to succeed. On several occasions I had teachers wanting to and willing to stay after school with me, so that I could understand a concept. I would recommend this school to anyone, and everyone. -- Former Student

I am a parent and work and Loretto elementary. It is a great school. The teachers are very devoted and caring people. The CSS department (autism) is outstanding. This school continues to be an A school and it deserves to be one.

Loretto has exceeded my expectations. Despite the size, Teachers and staff take an individual interest in each child and provide a safe and fun learning environment. Mrs. Ellis is an incredible kindergarten teacher and we are lucky to have been in her class.

I am a student that moved on from Loretto two years ago. I honestly wouldn't have liked to have gone anywhere else. I think that the work I was given (especially in 5th grade) really helped prepare me for the challenges that now face me in middle school. This is saying a lot because i currently go to a college prep school, taking algebra a year early, and this school prepared me for it. I was (and still am) a straight A student all my life, and this is mainly due to the fact that Loretto's teachers really helped me to not just "get" the concept being learned, but examine it and really grasp it. I loved how I could grow not just academically, but socially as well. Even if you come in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade, you still know everyone by the end of your 5th grade year. I see that some people have been putting down the class size, but I loved having a larger class because all our ideas, questions, and opinions could be bounced off one another and gave us different ways of looking at something. I was going into 3rd grade when the principal changed, and I have to say that he has made it so much more the technology magnet that it is. Overall, I would strongly recommend Loretto.

I am a student at Loretto Elem. And so is my brother. We both love it there. I am in 5th grade and my brother is in kindergarten. Mr.Begley is a really fun princepal. Last year if we read a certain amount of book he ate a worm. This year if we read a certian amout of books he will kiss a pig. He always gets us motivated to read by doing some crazy things to reward us. Me and my brother are also in extended day and that is awesome too. I am a patrol and I love this school and I think ou would to

My children and I had an excellent experience at this school. They went here for the 2010-2011 school year. Mrs. Toomer is by far, one of the best Kindergarten teachers I've ever seen! We also had Ms. Vogt and Ms. McMurry (team teachers) and the were excellent teachers! I could not have asked for better teachers. The teachers, who I have had the pleasure of working with, genuinely care about their students. They had a way of realting to the kids and making them feel special. They were very encouraging for those students who struggled. The school atmosphere was very family oriented. I can only speak from my experience, but I can not say enough kind words about this school!

I have had two children so far in this school and I have to say that things have have been so much worse since the changes.The new principal is rude and unedjucated in the matters of a.d.h.d and a.d.d students.If your child has a.d.d or a.d.h.d I do not recomend this school at present time. Not only are they irrisponsable with important paper work pertaining to these children They flat out do not care. Trust me when I tell you that if you send your child to this school he or she will just be a number not only do they not have the proper training as teachers to handle these issues, they flat out don't care. If you send your child to this school with these problem i promise you they will be just a number lost in the system.Frustrated
