Title 1 school + English language learners-lowest ranking school in the district; also ranks low compared to other surrounding districts. LTISD had a 7.8% special ed enrollment rate in 2016. Illegal cap on TX special ed 8.5%; national average special ed 13.5%. Talented & gifted program much improved. Experienced teachers are AWESOME! LTISD is much focused on sports, cheer, dance & struggles with TX dyslexia handbook; Student success initiative; Title 1 Part a Section 1118 parental involvement. School board will listen and make changes for improvement. Music dept has broadway style musical twice/ school year. School bond passed to improve LTISD playgrounds & replace school buses over 5 yrs old with new seatbelts. LTE Title 1 monies fund tutoring & schoolwide programs (not sure what else beyond "tutoring" & curriculum celebration nights; fun annual carnival fundraiser. Reading other comments, unresolved complaints can go to Superintendent and/or school board if not addressed by the Principal.
Terrible school. 3rd class education due to low-income school. Although there are some good teachers here....the principal is doing nothing to get rid of the bad ones. Lots of yelling (teachers to students) Reported a teacher for verbal abuse towards another child (my child witnessed) shortly afterwards, the teacher retaliated against my child by confronting her. Had to pull my child out of the class & move to another class. Teacher caught my child out in the hall alone and once again started giving my child a hard time by yelling. When we reported the incident to the principal = the teacher flat out denied it. I myself witnessed this same teacher yelling at a student (as I stood outside her classroom) Principal does nothing except "investigate" She is not strong enough to get rid of bad teachers. (She refuses to believe what the students & parents are experiencing)
I love this school.... The teachers and administration truly care about my children. My children love LTE and have learned and grown so much during their time there.
Very impressed by quality of teachers & staff here. They care very much for their students, and are committed to their success.
