A lot of changes that has appeared at this school. I love the office staff the cafeteria staff Ms. Reba, Mr. Rider, for all the teachers that I've been fortunate to meet and my children that had them they r AMAZING! I'm going to miss them so! A different leader in this school with fresh ideas and new ways to get the parents envolved and truly makes decision based on the truth. Once LES gets this we might actually one day get to be on Chanel 15 Cool Schools!

I love this school!!! I have a first grader here, and she also loves it. The teachers and staff are super friendly and helpful! Everyone at the school knows my little girls name. I can't possible say enough good things. My beautiful little girl is EXTREMELY HYPER!! She is always running, jumping, dancing or singing, and she talks, talks, talks all day!! I was really afraid that she would have trouble in school because of this, she has such a big personality that it can be a little much for some people. But the Loxley staff have been wonderful, and everyone has really taken to her, and made her feel special. For some reason this school gets a bad rep. in Baldwin County and I have no idea why. I love it!! Unfortunately, my family is about to move to another state, and my daughter and I both could not be more upset about having to leave this school!

I agree with the parents describing the Principal as terrible. She and the School are both hopelessly inadequate. They are a diservice to the children and the community. Leadership is everything and this school has none!

Worst excuse for a principal I have ever seen in any school. My children have been in Baldwin county schools since 1999 and we loved every minute of it until we moved to Loxley and found out where the bottom of the barrel is located. Communication does not exist between the parents and the teachers and if you try to get some assistance from the principal she treats you like an illbehaved child that is demanding more for your child than is available to the other children. I guess nothing is supposed to be good enough for everyone. Its a brick wall and I suggest, if you are investing in your childrens future that you stay far away from Loxley Elementary.

What truly makes a good school is the parents and their involvement in their childs education. When you walk in the office and down the hallways you will feel the love and family atmosphere. Our family love this school, the counselor, principal and teachers. The teachers will provide the help and push that your child need to make them a good student. Great job Loxley!!!!!!

After I heard about one of the PE teachers grabbing a kid and some of the people covering it up I pulled both my child out and sent him to Daphne.

Love this school & LOVE the principal! The only complaints that I've heard are from parents who have kids who get in trouble. She is tough on discipline, but sweet to the kids & we have an awesome school because of it! Keep it up Dr. Ramey!!!

Don't like that principal. Very few people do. The teachers are awesome. They treat everyone the same.My kids always loved their teachers. If the principal ever left i would move back so my kids could go back there.

We love this school. It is small, but not too small and everything seems to be run very smoothly. I didn't know the previous principal mentioned in another post, but Dr. Ramey has always been very kind and positive. She treats children fairly, even when my son was in trouble. My kids love her and the school.

Absolutely Amazing. The Principal and Teachers make you feel as if you have been there for years. First-Class school.

I think the school would be in much better condition if it had a leader and an organizer who looked out for the best interst for the school and children who attend the school. Ms. Nervine seems to be focused on people's personal life who she doesn't even know instead of the best interest of the school and children. We need someone who is honest, sincere and someone that the community would be proud of.

I have been a studentat LES for 7 years now and it is just a great school to grow up in all the teachers are so good at what they do that it is hard to think about going on to another school.Dr.Nervine is also a great principal she does all she can to make LES a fun,educational,and safe place to learn.

LES is an awesome school. Because I have 4 children, LES has been a part of my life for nearly a decade. The school is led by a great leader and organizer, Dr. Nervine, who is constantly searching for available programs, funding, incentives, or other ways to improve the school. The teachers care about their students; they encourage the children to do their best, always, whatever their best may be. A heavy emphasis has been placed on reading, county-wide, and LES takes this emphasis seriously. Reading is exercise for the mind, in my opinion, and I am pleased that the students have aquired a love for reading because of the programs implemented here. Because of the focused leadership,the safe and loving environment, the care and attention of the teachers, and the enthusiasm of the students, LES is a school body, a family, with one goal in mind, a well-rounded, well-educated student.
