We bought a home specifically for this school zone and the school's rating, but it wasn't long before the rose-colored glasses came off. Standardized test scores and the 5-star rating reign supreme at this school. The teachers and staff are good, but highly intimidated by a micromanaging administration. The principal does not consider the needs of each individual student and will ignore you if you make any request for help. He does not want anyone getting in the way of his 5-star rating and will throw your child to the wolves before helping, just as he did with our child.

This is my daughter's first year at Lamping and we have been so impressed. After reading some of the reviews below, I completely disagree with others on how the staff and teachers work with children who are delayed or considered special needs. Everyone has a unique experience, but from what I've encountered, I have been so happy at this school. My daughter has an IEP and she has grown more over the past 6 months since attending Lamping. Her teachers have been wonderful in helping her feel confident in herself and have accelerated her learning substantially . She sees the school's speech therapist, weekly, and she has had huge improvements in her speech this year. I have feared, because she struggles, that she would hate school. I am so thankful they have taken the time to teach her that learning can be fun and enjoyable.

I am hurt that this schools doesn't understand children who are slower learners. I would appreciate if they cared more about feelings rather than looking good!! The staff at this school seem unhappy. My child was a happy kids until he started going here. If your child is perfect and excels this school will be fine, but if your child has any delays, this school will be a nightmare.

Well, they made my son do that they could do whatever u could do, but they made him do something else because they didn't want him to do a war diarama. I don't think this is fair, because they, the students, could do what ever project they want.

Overall we moved to GV because of the schools, we are extremely impressed with our sons vibrant teacher. He is thrilled to come to school and he is more willing to learn. Thank you to Ms. Moas for making our school year fun and a smooth transition. We are blessed :)

I thought this would be a fantastic school, and for the most part, the staff is great. THE LEADERSHIP Is utterly and rediculously snobbish, insensitive and bossy. If your child has special needs or any thing that could be considered less than perfect, this principal will not want you there and he will be relentless untill you transfer your child elsewhere. My child was singled out, targeted, labeled as trouble, and wound up in severe emotional distress due to the bias against my child by the administration here. It nearly caused a lawsuit. Like I said, I live in this neighborhood and it is a great school if you have enough money and your child is perfect enough. So unimpressed. The environment almost ruined my child who has more than enough challenges without being threatened and treated poorly by adults. It was sad to witness a wonderful staff who were silenced, instructed not to speak to me, etc because of the principal.

This is a great school. My son has come very far academically. I almost feel like he is in a private school. I love that they have to wear uniforms and are very accountable for their actions.

My husband and I are very pleased with the education that our child is receiving at Lamping. This year is off to a great start with Mr. Knudson as our teacher. His humor and challenging work has really inspired my son. He has never enjoyed school as much as he is this year!

Amazing! We are having a wonderful second grade year with Ms. Moas! We feel very lucky we have her at Lamping.

Frank Lamping is by far the best school my children have attended. The community and parent involvement is amazing and I truly feel that the school cares about the education of the students. The school promotes college even at this level of education which I think is great. My child constantly praises her 2nd grade teacher, Mr. Rapp and she is much more responsive and willing to learn than I have ever seen.

Lamping is a wonderful school. There are excellent programs available and the teachers are outstanding. There is great parent involvement as well. Our family couldn't be happier when this school!

You've hit GOLD if your children are able to attend Lamping. Although the schools here will never compete with high-tax east coast districts, Lamping is the best in Vegas. I'm not sure what will happen now that there is a new Principal, but the roots of Lamping are very strong, the surrounding community is supportive.

This is an excellent school. Our daughters are very happy and challenged daily. Our only complaint is the homework loads can be excessive, and finding parking during school events.

Frank Lamping Elem.is an outstanding school. This is a top rated school that has teachers and a administration that really cares about their students future. My dauther starts this year and I have some concerns about 1. Swine Flu procedures not being installed 2. Number of students in a class room. (fire standards) With students being this close in a class room and the outbreak of Flu this season we need to be proactive and take steps to prevent any outbreaks.

I have my 2 kids going to this school since past 2 years. Undoubtedly Lamping is one of the best schools in the area. However, i feel that there are a few areas where the school could still reach higher standards. Firstly, the extra-curricualr activties aren't as excellent as these could be. There is not much chlallenge offered in the programs and an above average child has not much to gain from these. Also one of my kids is in the gifted program at the school, but the program is more of an enrichment one and again lacks challenge and motivation to rise above and do something unique. My child also did not gain much in terms of learning at school as his teacher was not willing to go an extra mile. However, my younger kid's teacher in grade 1 was very forthcoming in bringing up with challenging stuff for kids.
