I love Lemon Avenue. My daughter is in kindergarten this year and we've really enjoyed it.We love her teacher, Ms. Lehmann! I feel that the PTA does a wonderful job with extra curriculur activities and the principal is very hardworking and dedicated. It seems like she knows all the kids' names, which is really nice. Lemon is a nice little school with great kids and families.

We have twins in TK and both kids and us love this school. The feeling you get is that everyone that works there is sincere about teaching the kids. Principal is awesome and is dedicated. I can't see why anyone would give this school anything less than 5 starts. I guess some parents are just old complainers if you know what I mean. You'd give them a brand new car and they would complain that you didn't fill it up with gas for them.

Our children have attended this school for many, many years. This is a very nice school with great teachers, and wonderful parent involvement. During the last couple of years I have noticed that the principal very outwardly plays "favorites" when it comes to placement of children etc. It appears that PTA parents get first consideration. This school says it has a policy of "no classroom choices" This is very unfair to the parents that have larger families, and can't attend all of the PTA meetings, but help out in many other ways. Thankfully, this is our last year at this school. We hope this is not the policy of the middle school we plan to attend.

Just for fun. . . I'm a sixty-nine year old alumni of this school. While I currently live in Camino/Placerville and left La Mesa/Fletcher hills prior to the first grade. At the time, 1949-50 the school had an experimental program called Pre-First. Somewhere between Kindergarten and first grade; it was a learn at ones own pace Montissori-like program. My family chose to return to their pre-war roots in Minnesota where I was enrolled in . . . Second grade, (the-nuns ,no dummies were impressed) in a good catholic school and have enjoyed a successful career as a Physician/Radiologist. I'm meeting some friends for a couple of days at the Del Coronado over Easter and for some reason the Lemon Ave School popped into my mind. A couple of clicks on Google and I find that it is not only still open but earning rave reviews. Bravo to the staff, students and parents, Thomas G Dehn MD FACR. . . And Happy Easter 2013!

This is a great school but due to budget constraints the class sizes are big. The principal is dedicated as well as the teachers. I strongly recommend the EAK program which is fabulous but also gives you an inside look at the crowded nature of public schools in CA. They do the best job with the resources they have available and community support. The after school program (ESS) is lacking and run primarily by teenagers who are well..... teenagers. They are not trained educators. If your child spends more than an hour in the ESS program a day I do not recommend it. Love the school and community. Hate the lack of resources in our CA public schools and the ESS program.

I could not be happier! We love love love Lemon Avenue! The principal is awesome. She is very involved, knows all of the kids and is very fair. The teachers and staff work very hard to get all kids to meet their goals. The PTA is very active and runs many, many events at the school. The PTA also has garden docents, art docents and PE docents. So many active families!

I've heard this is a fantastic school by everyone in my neighborhood. Many of my friends have kids here too, and they all love it.


Posted July 26, 2010

Both of our girls attended Lemon ave, we had 3 different principle in that time and in my opinion the current one is AWESOME, gets right in there with the kids and really LIKES them. The teachers are incredible, talented and caring. Class sizes make their job difficult. The PTA is by far the best I have ever seen, they give and give and give, to help make school a super experience for the kids (they even have a art/ garden/ PE docent program, something most schools do not). Loved our years there!

The teachers are wonderful, parent involvement is spectacular, and there are many many eents and activities to participate in. My only concern is the principal changes every year, and this year she isn't doing a very good job. Luckily the school is run by the PTA and it's members are consistant.

Lemon Avenue is wonderful. The mom that coordinates the after school clubs is doing a great job, my daughter loves that she can do different clubs every month or so.

Our new principal is a great addition to Lemon Avenue. She jumped right in, spends her lunchtime on the playground with kids, welcomes parents with open arms. The PTA already feels her support and encouragement. This is going to be a great year at Lemon Avenue!

Lemon Avenue Elementary is the quintessential small-town school experience that everyone wants their child to experience. The teachers are exceptional-experienced- hard working/friendly and caring. What a strong team! K-1-2 teachers are extrodinary and lay a strong foundation in reading. One 3rd grade teacher is a dynomite writingteacher and leads sing-a-longs with signlanguage. The 4/5 team really prepares kids for middle school. We are looking forward to our new principal. The former principal had an abrasive personality and was not flexible with parents or teachers- she never really listened or validated concerns. It's sad that she couldn't trust her staff but instead micro-managed. PTA is the heart of the school- their events/activities are kid-centered rooted in tradition/school spirit. The tons of money they raise goes back into the classroom/playground/library. Parent volunteers are appreciated/honored. What can I say, Lemon Avenue is #1 and my two daughters have thrived academically/socially at this wonderful campus!

The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
