I would give this school 6 starts, if I could. I absolutely feel blessed to have my son in Miss Jordano's kindergarten class this year. He has struggled with reading and she doesn't give up on him. I am amazed at the amount of energy this woman has. She makes school so much fun for the kids as they do a lot of their learning through project based learning techniques that SHE created over the course of her 20+ years of teaching. Miss Jordano is not the only fabulous teacher. From what I hear from other parents, the entire staff is hard-working and do a fantastic job. The certificated staff is also wonderful and the PTA is amazing. There is always something positive going on at Lee! -Parent of a kinder student, 2014/2015

This is by far my favorite school I have ever been to. After my 6 years at Lee I'm actually going to miss going to that school every morning. That is the longest time I will ever be going to a school and now I will always find myself being that my home. -Nathan Kersey(a student)

My daughter started Kindergarten at Lee. She absolutely loves it here. She has an awesome teacher who really pays close attention to the needs of her students. The teachers are quick to give the extra help when a student needs a little extra attention in an area. Which is probably why the school is doing so well academically. Next year my other child will attend Lee. Couldn't have found a better school.

I thought that this was a good school. We had a lot of work all year, but my son had lots of fun with all the activities they had. Parent involvment was very high and I thought that was great. The PTA was great too. They halp the school with alot of extra funding that the state has cut over the years. All in all we had a great year, but to those who are new at the school just be prepared to be very involved.

Lee Elementary is a great school, where children come first. It provides a safe and friendly environment for the children and the parents. Children are always being motivated and supported by the excellent staff from Lee. They teach the children great values, like responsibility, respect and positive attitude. The principal is very dynamic, energetic and her first focus are the students. I highly recommend this school.

My 3 daughters were at Lee during the school year 2002-2003. They were so priviledged to experience fine teaching & learning in the classes of Mr. Burnett, Mrs. Chambers, Mrs. Tardiff & Mrs. Joseph all of whom demonstrate exemplary dedicated professionalism & exude personal warmth that made learning joyous & meaningful for all the children in their care.
