Luts is ok, hate the 5th grade part of it, had to change teacher because favoritism plays a Huge part of alot of what goes on in class between teachers and students!!! but 2nd grade teachers are The best!!!!super assistant principal!! Dont see much of the principal at all.Kindergarten is very disappointing, they play alot and do pre k work for too long, class sizes are not balanced in any grades and the school does need a make over alot of the class rooms. The smell of mold in some of the 1st grade class rooms is over powering at times.

Lutz Elementary is not only consistently an A school, it is very family oriented with a great traditions. My husband's family were pioneers in Lutz and we've had family members attend ever since the school opened. My grandson now attends and is in second grade. Even if we move out of the area, we would still seek special assignment just to attend. Keep up the good work and thanks for educating our children to the maximum and for keeping them safe day after day, year after year. WE LOVE LUTZ!

Very disappointed in the 5th grade teachers, all but one. In my opinion 5th grade at LE needs an over haul. The principle has her blinders on when it come to 5th grade at this school. Many problems have been brought to her attention and year after year it is the same, nothing is done to improve or remove the teachers that cause the problems! Take your child out of this school before they reach 5th grade it is BAD!

LE is an ok school. I have to say that my kids did enjoy the teacher they had and that she did well in teaching them. However, the school overall just seemed dirty and old not presenting a "culture" for learning. I asked if my children could be tested or offerred advanced lessons to match the ability they were showing, and was told no due to age rules. We were disapointed. So, we have left Lutz Elementary as we felt the status quo was all that they could offer, not the best enrichment education our kids needed.

Outstanding elementary school!!!! The staff are the most caring group of people. They treat my children as if they their own and the principal is phenomenal. She loves her school and is very dedicated to achieving 100% student and staff success and satisfaction.

Lutz Elementary provides an excellent education focused on imparting skills that will aide eachchild to determine what is useful and valid rather than producing a child that can repeat information read, and not determine if it is useful, valid, or replicable. The graduates of Lutz Elementary may be found in a variety of Middle School placements but always excelling.graduates of Lutz Elementary are outstanding

My children have gone to Lutz for the last 6 yrs. (my oldest is now in 5th grade) They have loved this school. The staff get to know all the kids. They walk by in the mornings and say hello to them by name. They do great activities to get the kids interested in learning. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Both of my children attend Lutz Elementary and are in the AGP Program. We are very happy with the school, the education, the teachers and the staff. I would like to comment that I am surprised that there is no 'true' security at the school by now.

Lutz Elementary is a wonderful, small-town learning environment without the some of the social/status issues prevalent in many communities. PTA/parent involvement is very high and the team relationship between the administration and the PTA provides many added features for the children. Music, art and PE are provided with the additional of cultural days throughout the year. It is a smaller school that provides more one on one attention and communication than most schools. The environment for families is friendly and welcoming which encourages volunteerism and interaction.

We are very pleased with Lutz School! All three of my children have had wonderful teachers who truly want to see them succeed. I really appreciate that whenever I call with a question or concern I am responded to almost immediately. Both the Principal and Teachers are very approachable. Volunteer parents are in abundance and are welcomed by all. The music program is wonderful. I would like to see more extracurricular activities though. If I were grading schools I would give Lutz Elementary School an A.

I attended Lutz Elementary way back in 1973 through 1977. When I look back on those years at Lutz, I realize that those were some of the best years of my life. Lutz Elementary was a great school then and from what I can see on this website, it's even greater now; keep up the great work.

When I moved into Lutz and asked about the local elementary school, Lutz was described as Hillsborough's 'Hidden Little Jewel'. I honestly believe that there is no better describtion for this school. The teachers and office staff go out of their way to make the children and parents feel like one big family. I give gold stars to everyone involved with Lutz.
