This is an awful school. My daughter has a boy in her class that bullies and harasses her and her sister and the school refuses to do anything about it. This boy has caused her physical harm once, calls her and her sister names daily, and flips them off and makes inappropriate gestures at them every day, and yet after this has been brought to the teacher's attention, the principle's attention, and the after school teacher's attention, they have done nothing to protect my daughters. They made him apologize once, and that's it! One of my daughter's complained just the other day to the after school teacher about him harassing her and she just told my daughter that since she is older than him that she just should't listen to him. I have requested to have my daughter switched to a different class and they refuse to because their classes are filled to the max! If something happens to one of my daughters, this school will have a huge lawsuit against them! Along with that, a lot of classes don't have funding for field trips, and there are way too many students per teacher. Do yourself the favor and don't enroll your child here..

My highschool student attended Lime Street during his elementary school career and I found the school excelled in all catergories including teachers, students, staff, parents and PTA. My son and I both formed many great relationships with teachers, staff, and friends that my son still is still involved with.He is a great student that continues to excel and it is do in part to the education that he received at Lime.I now have a first grader that is now attending Lime and I do think the dynamic has changed greatly.I feel that many things have changed including, budgets, standards, parent involvement, and district involvement. I think there is one important thing that many parents who are complaining need to take into account. What is their involvement, before you complain do your part. I think that the number one complaint that I would have would be the lack of parent involvement both at home and school.Take a good hard look in the mirror parents and do your job before you complain about others not doing there jobs. Hold both your children and yourselves accountable.It is not the teachers job or the governments job to raise your children when you are to lazy to do it yourselves.

I wish everyone had the opportunity to see Lime Street from my perspective. Where I sit, I see teachers who are under enormous pressure to implement practices that will enhance student achievement. I see teachers who go above and beyond these implementations to find ways to make student learning fun and memorable. I see students who are worth every last minute spent planning and designing amazing lessons because THEY DESERVE IT! Also, I see parents who are willing to volunteer their time in the classroom, or from home, to help make sure this type of learning is able to continue. Are there problems with Lime Street? Yes. However, it would be nice to get beyond the finger pointing over who is to blame. A child's education stems from many different roots including the parents, teachers, other faculty, administration, and the child. Everyone needs to consider the following: Am I doing my part to guarantee my child and students are successful? If you have questions or concerns, express them! You are the only person able to advocate your ideas and opinions. If you are unhappy you have 2 choices: remain unhappy, or change your circumstances. I'm ready to do my part, are you?

Lime Street Elementary is by far the worst school my children have had the misfortune to attend! We moved here two years ago, and have had nothing but problems there. Aside from it being one of the lowest scoring schools in the district, my children have had numerous problems with bullying, the restrooms are so filthy my daughter refuses to go to the bathroom there, teachers who are not following state guidelines, and parents who do not care enough to form a decent PTA, donate for their children, or volunteer in the classrooms. I'm left with no choice but to find another school for my kids, and regret the time they have wasted at Lime Street. This is a sorry excuse for a school and the staff does not seem to care one bit. I feel sorry for the children who attend this school because they are in a poor learning environment, and will be far below grade level when they reach middle school. The district needs to take control of this school and clean it up, or close it down!!

My daughter has been attending Lime Street since Kindergarten and now is in 5th grade. She has had a wonderful experience at this school. Yes, they have had many changes in administration, teachers, and kids, but overall everyone is there for one reason...our kids. I have heard in the rumor mill say that all the "good teachers" and "smart kids" went to Krystal when it opened. Yes, most of the smartest kids did go to Krystal, but not all the good teachers left. Good ones stayed too. Sometimes it has nothing to do with the teachers. It's the kids. In ways I think the good teachers stayed because here at Lime is the challenge...not Krystal.

This is the second school year that my two children have attended Lime Street Elementary School. I am an active parent and volunteer often. I can only say wonderful things about the school. Is this school perfect, no. You will not find any "perfect" school. However, issues are handled in a very timely manner and the staff is all visibly there to work for the children, not for the money. The office staff is (always) courteous and the administration is available to meet student and parent needs. My children are learning at the acceptable rate they deserve which makes me very pleased to have them at Lime Street.

The bullying going on in this school is extremely severe. Nothing is done to consequence the bullies. The teacher to student ratio is unbelivable. The EXCEL Program they have (which claims to improve childrens reading) is a complete failure. They mix the classrooms and leave teachers with up to 42 students who are expected to learn how to read on their own, while the only teacher in the class reads with 5 students at a time.. This school is a complete failure and I am takign every action possible to get my child in a better school. If you want your child to get a good education, this is NOT the school to send them to.

I am currently attending a middle school (in a different city; unfortunately I moved from Hesperia) and I am now in the 8th grade. I attended Lime Street in my 4th and 5th grade years (2006-2008) and I can honestly say, they were the best years of my school life (so far). I played the violin, I was in GATE, and I participated in Clue-Me-In, both in 4th and 5th grade. Extracurricular activities are no problem at this school. Academically, I did exceptionally well. The teachers are so sweet (Mrs. Cummings & Ms. Padilla, if they're still there !:D) and they were always helpful. I am proud to say that I came from this school. :)

The children are out of control in class and the teachers are unable to handle them, making children who are willing to learn feel like school is no fun! The teacher/student ratios are out of control, over 30 children per class is no place to learn.

This school has caring teachers who participate in training programs to stay up to date. The small class size in the lower grades really allow the teachers to do an outstanding job. The piano lab, computer lab, and library resources are excellent! Kids have lots of opportunities to go above and beyond - Young authors, science projects, and GATE program just to name a few.

My husband and I thought our son would do great in this school. However, at open house, the teacher made the comment 'If the child doesn't turn in the hw on time I don't have time to grade it.' HW consist of name writing or coloring and pasting. Overall the class size was small but individual attention was still poor. The teacher seemed overly lazy and uncaring.

This school has received the California Distinguished School award more than once! I find the staff to be exceptional, as is the curriculum. The parent/teacher contact has added another dimension to our experience!

I had the wonderful opportunity to work at this fine school last year. The staff was very supportive and professional. I can honestly recommend students to this fine teaching staff and administration. Each person there seems to genuinely care about each students' success.

Academically this school is okay. The music program is very irregular and the kids look forward to doing this program.

I currently have an 11 year old daughter that is enrolled at Lime Street School. She has been enrolled since kindergarten. My son also attended Lime Street School, he is now 20 years old and serving our country in the U.S. Army. He attended 6 years at Lime. Throughout the years and from the beginning my experience has been all very good. The staff including the Principals and Vice Principals over the years have been excellent. Both of my children have benefited highly. Lime Street School has evolved into an exceptional educational institution and has been recognized as a California Distinguished School. In the past the music Department was exceptional, however, is currently in a transitional period. They offer an after school program for children with parents that need the child care. It is offered through the city of Hesperia and is full of fun and crafts.

The teachers are really good at this school. My son was in the GATE program. He learned a lot and it prepared him for middle school. The music program was excellent. No sports were available, and there were no art programs. Lime Street is rather clean and pleasing to the eye. I recommend this school!
