I am so grateful that all three of my kids will be able to go to Lu Sutton. The staff is amazing and the community is so welcoming. I am so proud of my the attention my son has gotten here. His behavior and academic abilities have soared since he transferred from Hamilton Elementary school to Lu Sutton.
Lu Sutton Elementary is an amazing school with truly wonderful teachers and a supportive staff that work to give kids the best education possible! My daughter just graduated from here and is now in middle school and thanks Lu Sutton everyday for preparing her for it. What makes Lu Sutton stand out from the rest of Novato's is that it emphasizes on project based learning and developing reading and writing skills very early in students. It has done a terrific job adjusting to the Common Core Standards and is already outperforming compared to schools with similar demographics and enrollment. Under Principal Bonnie Baron, the school has seen many changes for the better and is moving towards being a cleaner and happier place for students. I am exceptionally proud of our school!
We were very impressed with Lu Sutton and have grown to love it and its wonderful staff. The teachers at this school are very experienced and teach the students to be aware of of their community and what they can do to improve it. I am very satisfied with the education here as the teachers also challenge the students with fun extra-credit projects and encourage them to do more than what is expected! It boasts fun, hands on projects and after school classes in science, arts, and music! If I could choose any school to move my kids to, I wouldn't, Lu Sutton is the best!
Lu Sutton has the best parent community in Novato, hands down. Do you want to interact with genuinely nice parents and have your child go to school with really sweet and friendly kids? Well, then you want Lu Sutton. The teachers are exceptional and I've been thrilled with the education my child has received here. At every turn, he's been supported appropriately, whether he was excelling at something and needed an extra challenge, or he was struggling and needed support. The other great thing about Lu Sutton that some schools lack is diversity. I didn't want my child in a homogenous school. At Lu Sutton, he's had the opportunity to interact with kids of all different backgrounds. That's a critical part of his education, too! We are so glad we chose Lu Sutton and feel it's been the best and most supportive environment for our child.
