My children have attended LAE for several years. When they started school, I was blown away at how well the school was run-we were always informed of what was going on far in advance, fundraisers were organized and purposeful, and everyone (students, teachers, administration) seemed like a family. Beginning approximately two years ago, LAE has become chaotic and unorganized. No one can answer questions I have pertaining to events at the school. The new principal seems to be entirely too busy with other things and doesn't seem interested in running this once incredible school the way that it has been ran in the past. There is an air of unprofessionalism that radiates from every corner of the main office now. It is quite disappointing to say the least.Don't get me wrong, the teachers are incredibly friendly and helpful. But even they seem lost and uninformed in this new era. I will be thankful when my children leave LAE this year and move over to the Jr High.

I enrolled our son into 4th grade as a new resident this school year. Although we ran into many complications from county we relocated from, we were grateful that Principal Cory was both compassionate towards us and very proactive about getting the enrollment process taken care of. Front office staff for registration was not very nice but then again it was a busy time. However, the principal and administration were very efficient and concerned. Our son loves it there and every time I pick him up the student look happy and content. Safety is top notch there and we have only have great things to say about his teacher. All in all - an excellent school.

both of my children have attended LAE. My son was there through 6 grade and my daughter through 5th. The teachers are caring and well prepared to teach your child. Two thumbs up for the teachers and staff at LAE. I subbed there for 5 years, and I loved it. there is a new principal this year and she is great.

We love the school. Although the area is growing and the school is full the county is adding portables and teachers in order to maintain small class sizes. We chose to transition out of private school into this public school. As a mom and a local Realtor, I recommend this school above others.

LAE provides the quality education every child in America deserves! The only complaint I can possibly think of is the music and art departments are not the best in the nation, but then again, at least they have an art and music department! Parents are welcomed and as involved as they want to be. The opportunity to achieve academic success is found at this school in a pleasant learning environment.

Lake Asbury Elementary has been a positive environment for our child. He has found teachers he enjoys and classwork appropriate for his ability levels. Obviously they change what is required in accordance to child needs. They are very open and friendly. It is a very parent friendly environment.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
