This school is great if you have the right last name. If you're a Pritchett, Whitehead, Dukes, Perez, or Shad you will love it here. My children hate going to school because of the ridicule and embarrassment they receive from the teachers. My 6 year old(honor student) was suspended for 2 days for a minor offense. He had never even been to the office before. If you don't have a lot of money, I would recommend steering clear of Lake Butler all together. Your children will be made fun of and belittled by teachers,staff and students.

LBES is an excellent school! Kids are treated very well by most teachers. The teachers interact well with both the parents and the kids. Parents are encouraged to participate in school activites with their children. This school definately deserves it's A+. This is certainly a community school.

There are a few teachers/staff that work there that I feel do not deserve this job! Besides that, my sons teacher is the best teacher in the world. We are so happy with her.

I feel that our A+ School is going downhill since it has been 'under new management'. The children are pushed so hard because of FCAT that they are under to much stress and are not able to be children. They have taken away any fun time that they did have and I think children this age need recess and other breaks throughout the day.

The community has strong support for the school. Both of my kids attend LBES currently. I have found the educational opportunities to be varied while the after school sports nonexistent. Many teachers are at school and ready for class before the bell rings while other teachers refuse to let the kids enter the classroom until after the bell rings. The dedication of the latter is in question. The school is very focused on teaching the FCAT and little is done after FCAT testing each year.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


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.
