Lietz is a wonderful school with an incredibly diverse population. The teachers are some of the most dedicated I’ve experienced. The new(ish) principal does a great job of creating an environment where everyone feels included. She has shared in her parent meetings, her plans to reach underperforming students and I was very impressed with her experience and knowledge about reading. She and the rest of the staff care deeply for the students. The best part of Lietz is allowing my children to have the chance to experience diversity, both culturally and academically.

This school has great potential, yet it lacks in its leadership. We've experienced the change in leadership at Lietz, and we're surprised what differences it can make. Weak leadership has impacted on the division of the school community.

It's a good school with strong teachers and a diverse group of kids. Leadership is lacking however. You won't realize how important a good principal is until sending your kid to school (and seeing what not to do).

Both my daughter and my son have been going to Lietz since Kindergarten and they always had wonderful teachers. The community is amazing with such an positive learning spirit among teachers and parents. The students are diversed in race and socio economic status, but they all seem to get along great.For academics, ELA is great with flex program where different level students learn at different classrooms. I wish math had similar approach, but it's not. I think the math program is the only weakness in this school. Otherwise, a great nurturing place for all kids.
