Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
July 17, 2015
As previously stated, my child loved every one of her teachers. I found them all to be very caring, helpful, compassionate and effective.

Amount of homework: Just right

I do feel that for 3rd grade, it bordered on just right and too much! Loved it kept my kid busy but at times it seemed like a lot. It was week after week. Maybe a break between weeks with lots of homework.

My child has been going to school there for 3 years now. Her teachers from year to year have been nothing but AWESOME!!!! My child has loved everyone of their teachers and I have never had any issues with the school. Do I agree with everything, the way the run it? No, but nobody will every be completely happy with every move a school makes. As in business, you cannot make every customer happy! Impossible. I read about the child with Autism, sad case but it sounds as if they knew of the autism and want special education bilingual class? Cannot read or write was written in comment, yet wanted bilingual class?? Was this looked into prior to entering school? Sad situation, but, not entirely the schools fault. Seems like more research was needed. I also noticed it was not even from the parent but a person speaking on behalf of the parent!

I am out raged about how a child that was enrolled in your school has not received proper attention to his needs. Mother of this child states that her son has autism and she would like him to be tested and placed in bilingual special education because of his condition. School staff told her he has to wait a year before they can test him and place him where he needs to be. Mean time they place him in a regular class room where he can not function . this boy does not know English nor does he read o write. Why is he treated in this form?

I attended my fifth grade year here, and I remember having enough friends to go around. Safety Patrol was boring, but was ok. I didn't take regular math and LA, as I had to take it online. Had to do a LOT of persuading to the school :(. Otherwise was a great school!

Limestone Creek Elementary School is the perfect balance between professionalism and feeling of family. The teachers are caring and prepared for any situation. The administrative staff is always ready to help solve a problem. The ESE Dept is caring and qualified. Front office always is ready to help. I have been a Limestone parent for 10 years Mrs. Shepler and Mrs. Zaph both are outstanding as

This is our first year at Limestone. I don't have any major complaints. My only issue would be class size. There are 18 kids in my son's class to one teacher with no aide. Parents are pretty involved so she does get a few hours a day of parent volunteering. I would love to see more one on one going on. I see she can get very frustrated and have heard her complain that the school is doing cutbacks and she talks about the politics frequently. Maybe not so professional but...What is one to do? My son is very comfortable and happy there, we considered private school for several reasons and may still decide in the future that would be a good route for him. However, currently we are satisfied and so is he.

Very wonderful with fundraisers and school activities for the children. Poor teacher quality, disappointed with parent-teacher communication. Could possibly work on continuing education for the teachers in Individual differences. After several attempts to meet with the principal I was pleased to finally meet and discuss concerns I had for my 4th grader. Very wonderful woman if you can get penciled in her busy schedule to meet. Need improvement in the special-ed department and positive reinforcement with students from teachers. Safe school, a bit over crowded and has some improvement to do with teachers.

I have a child in kindergarten at LCE and I must say that I do like the teacher, school and staff. My one concern is class size. Last year it was at about 14 with a full time aide. This year, no aide, 20 kids and quite a few behavioral / learning challenges thrown in, too. Our teacher does her very best, but it is not an ideal situation.

I am a teacher at another school and both of my kids go to Limestone. This school has highly qualified teachers and staff. The work the students do is very challenging and prepares them for whatever is in front of them. My kids have gone through K- 3rd grade and have had awesome teachers each time. They all go out of their way to nurture and enrich each student's lives. The only thing I wish is that Limestone would offer morning care for students.

Both of my children have attended LCE. So, I've been an LCE parent for 8 years. We have a new principal starting this year who already has impressed me with her style. I cannot say enough about the wonderful teachers and staff at this school. Overcrowded?? The school is actually underenrolled- there is room for growth. Kindergarten classes had about 13-14 kids in each class. My child's 4th grade class had 18-20 in each class. That's exceptional not overcrowded. As far as their special ed staff- I've had issues in the past. They could improve on inclusiveness. I have noticed improvement over the years and now there are some classes that have inclusion. They have a bit of a way to go though on that. They do care and want to do what is best though. This is an exceptional school though and I give it my highest review.

Awsome school. My son learned so much during his first year of school and his teacher was first class and taught the class with very creative techniques.

I could not be happier with the quality education that both of my children receive at this school. Teachers and Principal Werner go out of their way on a daly basis to do what is in the 'child's best interest'.

I couldn't agree more- Overcrowded, forget getting help if your child has a learning disability. Horrible experience and glad to be out of there.

My daughter has enjoyed this school a lot. It is not overcrowed and they keep making it better each year. It seems like the teachers want to be there and all have a good attitude. It is like a private school without the fee.

Before we moved to Jupiter we researched area schools; Limestone was rated #1 school in PB County 5 yrs. ago. We love the school and teachers and have never had bad experience. I have nothing but good things to say about Limestone!
