My daughter started Phillip O'brien in January of 2014, and we had a great 2nd half of the school year. This is a great community-focused school with A+ faculty and an A+ administration team. Her teacher was wonderful -- very welcoming and helped to make sure my daughter was on track. I could not of asked for a better experience.

Phillip O'Brien is an awesome school. My daughter has been there since 2011 for kindergarten and now 1st grade. Her teachers' are the best. The principal and assistant principal strive to make sure the children are in a safe, loving, and enriching environment.

My 2 boys have been at Lime Street/ Philip O'Brien since the 2006-2007 school year. This has to be one of the BEST schools in Lakeland! The front office staff would have to be the nicest people I have ever met. As for the Principal, In all the years she has been there she has done a wonderful job of taking care of what needs to be taken care of. All the teachers my boys have had at Philip O'Brien, with the exception of my oldest sons 2nd grade teacher, are the most caring group of teachers I have ever come across. The only thing my youngest son had was the cleanliness of the bathrooms.

I have two children at this school. I have been very pleased with the work of my children's teachers. They encourage my children to do their best and give me plenty of opportunities to be involved in the different school activities. The principal and the office staff are helpful and promptly address any concerns you may have. Overall, they do their best with the resources they have and parents/guardian involvement is highly encouraged.

Philip O'Brien Elementary is definitely an A school in more than one way. The principal and assistant principal are extraordinary, the teachers are wonderful, and the rest of the staff members are always friendly and helpful. Everyone works hard to create a positive learning environment for the students, and it shows.

Lime Street is by far the greatest Elementary school I have ever had the pleasure to have children in (I have 5 total). I currently have 3 children in Lime Street and all around, you could not ask for a better school! **Note: Miss More is the greatest kindergarten teacher!**

I had both of my children transferred to LimeStreet and love it....the teachers are very compassionate, involved & devoted. Principal & Asst. Principal are great...all the staff are very dedicated. I have yet to hear of a better elementary school in Lakeland, and the fact that they have been an 'A' rated school for so many years gives testement to the fact that they try very hard not only for the kids but to stay up to standards for the State of Florida as well.

After sending my daughter to lime street for 3 years, I must say she had 2 excellent teachers and 1 good one, Ms.Bundy and Mrs Roberts are the best in the field,in my humble opinion. And Mr.Fields is also tops. As far as administrative staff go, Mr Obrien and Mrs Crawford are the best also. Our 3 years at lime street are what memories are made of

I think Lime Street is a wonderful school overall. I have 2 kids going there, one in 2nd, and the other in kindergarten. The teachers are very easy to interact with, and my kids love going.

I have two children in Lime Street, and we have been more than satisified overall. My boys cannot imagine going anywhere else. Principal and Assistant Principal are fantastic. We have had problems with a couple teachers, but were able to work things out. Great school!

Two of my children have attended Lime Street Elementary. The teachers are compassionate and have a desire for their students to learn. The main driver of this school's success of receiving a grade of A is because they encourage parent participation and a majority of the parents assist in their children's education. The principle and vice principle as well as the staff are very organized and it is seen while on campus. I haven't heard a parent yet in my neighborhood dislike this wonderful school. I wish the middle schools ran in such an orderly fashion.

I feel Lime Street needs more training in the areas of ADHD and other related illnesses. Also some of the teachers there need to realize there are going to be 'special' kids and not all kids are of the same cloth.

I had my daughter in Limes Street's Kindergarten class with Ms. More. Ms. More is excellent and I could not have had a better teacher for my daughter. Lime Street as a whole is wonderful. The office staff is fantastic and I was impressed on how Mr. O'Brien knows all the kids names. He is always outside during drop off and pick up times and always says hello. The cafeteria staff and all the teachers are exceptional. If you ar econsidering this school for your child, don't waste another minute... this is the school you want your child to start their education or to continue their education. It truly deserves the 'A' rating they get every year.

My child attended Lime Street Elementary for the first time last year. The quality of the schoold over-all is great. Music is available however Art is not. There is a good level of parent involvement within the school. I am a parent volunteer and am happy to be part of the school.
