Leisure City K-8 Center has dedicated, caring teachers who really care, inspire and advocate for the students they teach, their families and the community as a whole. Change of boundaries have taken many wonderful students away from our great school. However, students can still attend our school even if they are not in our area. Our principal, Dr. Hunter-Sheppard, RUNNER UP FOR THE 2014 PRINCIPAL OF THE YEAR AWARD. welcomes any student with open arms. Call the school and inquire how your child can attend our great school.

My son attended the pre-k program at the elementary school. The teacher Ms. Cummings was excellent! I couldn't of asked for a better teacher. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. Now the office staff on the other hand can use a lesson in manners. The head doesn't know what the tail is doing. They are rude.

/As a former teacher at L.C. K-8 CENTER for 24+ years, my rating of Excellent is based on the years prior to my retirement in June 2008. At that time, the school was operating in high mode. At the schools Elementary level, staff members worked well together in order to provide the very best education possible for their students.

Leisure City K-8 Center is an outstanding school. The faculty and staff have allways been courteous to my child and myself. The most important thing is that my child has allways been content in that school and has excellent grades. Thank-You

This school is very much lacking in their academic programs. The entire school program is BORING to say the least. Safety at the school is questionable & lack proper security. I was able to walk into the school without being questioned by security or anyone for that matter. I am not surprised to say the least.

It is my impression that this elementary school has an average academic program. It is currently a zone school, meaning that the students are performing poorly on standardized state tests. Overall, the school is improving but at a slow pace.

It has been a great dissappointment. What a shame that students who are trying to learn and due to lack of administration and/or leadership, they have been sacrificed or short handed! Shame on you!
