An absolute nightmare for my child. Incompetent administration, the teacher we were assigned to simply did not care. Bullying was an issue. No response from administration. It was necessary to involve outside parties. This experience drove us to home school.
I have four children that have attended this school. My daughter, who now is in 9th grade, attended all six years. My son, who is in middle school, has dyslexia and ADHD, attended all the years with the exception of 2nd grade. I have a son in third grade and a daughter in kindergarten. I have read all the reviews and all are very truthful, except for this school has gone downhill with our new principal. Before Mrs. peacock this school was ran by a tyrant. I know a harsh word, but it is very fitting. It has taken Mrs. Peacock a few years to get this school running and functioning the way it should. The Vice Principal is a wonderful fit with her and will one day make a great principal. I do not agree with a lot of the rules they are starting to enforce. I may not always express my feelings in the most positive way with the staff, but I am always allowed to voice my opinion. They take abuse and positivity every day. As parents we need to understand the difficulties they face. As the head of the school they need to learn how to discard bad ideas and come up with new solutions. Parents are their children’s best advocates, so a little more understanding in this area would be an improvement. One last thing, I have had amazing teachers and poor teachers. My sons 3rd grade teacher was the reason my son has received the help he needs. Sadly they found out to late and he had to repeat a grade. He had a new group of teachers and those teachers where the worst teachers He had. The staff for the most part loves these children. Sometimes we have had bad experiences, but overall it’s a safe school.
My daughter has been in Lake Mary Elementary for 2 years now, and everything has been absolutely wonderful. Her teachers have been engaging, and their curriculum is very well done, and has helped her to learn at a rate that still shocks me. The office staff is great as well. Everyone is in constant communication with the parents. They provide lots of parent resources and feedback. They have the pickup and dropoff processes down to a science. All in all, I can't find anything to complain about with Lake Mary Elementary.
My daughters attended the VPK program and are now finishing up Kindergarten at LME. When I first went on the campus I was not impressed with the parking situation or the age of the facility...it's just an old school. With that said, the administration and the teachers are awesome. They make you feel welcome and like you are a part (which you are) of your child's education. I think LME is a wonderful school!
