Learning Community Charter School

Considering sending my child to 1st grade at LCCS in the fall. Lots of reviews I've read say the school has changed with new administration and is not as good as it used to be. Anyone have feedback about the school?

There's also an iphone app, Jersey City Resident Response Center---there's a long list of issues you can report. Unshoveled sidewalk is one of them.

CapnJon & Jcpaddy, thanks a lot. We didn't realize there was a new school in the former St. Anne's building--really looking forward to learning about Global and St. Nicholas.

We want our children to go to school with children who come from families like ours and families who are not like ours. We like the Heights because we are close to everything and have a lot of space with a huge yard. We're an interracial family so it's important for us to raise our kids around others like us and also around cultural and economic diversity.
So we would send our kids to public schools, but what we hear is not good. Oversized classrooms, budgets cuts or few resources for arts and recreation programs and children sitting in trailers because they've run out of space--that's not an environment I want my children to learn in. I'd love to find out more about the great public schools in jersey city, talk with parents, hear what they have to say and that's why I'm hoping to get some advice here. The website, parenthesis, is a great start, thanks for that. It's upsetting that our options seem to be private school--which is so hard to justify given the amount of property taxes we pay, a lottery system for a charter or moving to a suburb with a great school system and very, very little diversity.

Thanks for the feedback so far.

Thanks, I'll check out the Charters and look into the link. Anyone on here send their kids to private/catholic schools in jersey city or other towns that they like?

Schools in the Heights

My son will begin Kindergarten next year and I'm wondering if anyone here has recommendations for public or private schools, preferably in the Heights?

We've looked into Stevens Cooperative and OLC, but prices are really high ($18,000) for Stevens and I'm not reading stellar reviews for either. I also can't justify paying that kind of money for anything that's not college.

He's in an employer sponsored preschool right now but we'd like to transition him into a local program. We don't have many friends with school aged children in the neighborhood and would like some feedback. If you have suggestions about schools in other parts of JC or neighboring towns, that would also be helpful.

We don't want to move!
