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.
I rate this school a 10, this is one of the best school in florida, look at their fcat scores
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.
This is the best school teachers are great kids r learning faster one on one teacher child time help....Just the best Amy B. Morton
