Coming from California ..the Florida "system" really ticks me off! BUT I have to say..this school isn't horrible. My daughter cried the first month we were here because she missed recess (CA has 3 during the day). have been irritated more at the whole system and not at this school..they are only doing their jobs. Both years now my daughter has liked her teachers. I have also been satisfied with her teachers. Both teachers have stated they hate homework :) Good..because so do i!! My daughter has 30 mins a night of reading and I was told any classwork not finished will come home but there is enough time in class ..I should hardly see any work come home. I think it's great that everyone gets free breakfast..but once again the "system" is failing the kids.. my daughter eat Poptarts every morning until I found out! The worse part about this school is the car circle pick up line..HOLY COW!! BUT..as the school year goes on..it gets better and better..everyone falls into a routine and things improve. With all honesty I see the car line HOT MESS at a lot of others schools too..not use to that!! Overall I'm pretty satisfied with LSG and it's staff. PTA is very active!
I have both my boys in this school since last year so far we love the school and teachers.everyone is so kind and welcoming.they can do a little better on breakfast choices for the kids. i been to other schools that provide better breakfast menu, more wholesome breakfast not always poptarts and toast but like they do here.other than that A+
I don't want my kids at this school. I went to register my kindergartener and the lady yelled at me because I didn't have the right stuff. I tried asking questions to see if i could get the right stuff and not mess up and she stared at me and started talking really slow and rowling eyes at me. I was so embarrassed in front of my children. My daughter says the lady was mean to her in the office this week and she is scared to go in there. My kindergartner is now afraid of new school. Other parents said that they have the same problem but that all of the office has been there long time and think they can talk how they want. It is not right!!!!!!!
Great school and amazing teachers! Wonderful extremely involved PTA!!!! I have 3 kids and they all loved every teacher they got here. We've never had an issue. A+++++
The office staff at this school is very rude. If they don't like you they will try and make everything difficult. They don't want to help if you are from another country and will make you feel like you should find a different school. It's clear that this school operates like an elitist clique and if you're unlucky enough to not be accepted then you and your children will be made uncomfortable. I have liked most of the teachers, but some are more interested in being the "cool" teacher instead of furthering their student's education. Security at this school is as lax as previous commenters noted, especially in regards to lunch and dismissal. If we could afford to sell our home I would move out of this district. I wish the county would give this school an overhaul.
Lake St. George Elememtry needs a peridime shift and real quick! Never have I seen a student come home with so much homework, are the teachers teaching anymore? My own sister who has been teaching for 30+ years is in disgust of the amount homework my son brings home every single night! Teach the children!!
Fantastic school for my grandson, who has Asperger's syndrome that is on the autism sprectrum. Since Ms Texel took over as principal, two and a half years ago. Training is done. Everyone communicates. Before she came to the school, it was terrible. Definitely highly recommended if your child or grandchild is on the autism sprectrum.
We came from another county and were completely shocked how behind this school was. My child's teacher calls him the math wiz because she gets all the answers right, but this is stuff he learned last year at his former school. My child is not learning anything new. We are very disappointed in the school. Safety is also an issue at the school too.
This is the WORST school I have ever seen. No wonder why they lose students every year. Poor teachers, principal, and your child is NOT safe at this school. Kindergarten teacher Lori Patterson is the worst teacher and is more concerned with her physical appearance than teaching. For grading, they allow the students to correct their low grade tests to better their scores - disgusting!! Teach, not redo to look better.
Love, love the teachers and staff. Excellent school for learning. Would like to see better security measures in place. Not impressed with PTO.
The teachers and facility work with the children and parents to ensure a quality education for our son. He loves Lake St George and is excited to go to school everyday.
I have been involved with Lake St. George for 10 years....I have 4 children...I believe LSG is one of the best schools in Pinellas County Florida!! You feel like you are at home....everyone knows everyone ....the kids WANT to go to school. The school involves the parents and families as much as possible. I feel comfortable with dropping my children off because I know that they are going to have a great day!!
I love this school because they do so much for the kids, examples: a fall festival Halloween Carnival every year. The teachers donate their time every year to make everyone's Halloween very special by putting on a Fall Festival with games , fun and entertainment. Every child is a winner with the games and gets a prize no matter if they won the game or not. They put on a family picnic every year as well , again donating their time to play games , have athletic events , such as kids vs parents kickball etc. I have spoken to many parents from other schools who envy our school because they put on so many nice events for the kids and community. They state that their schools do not do all these events and I have talked to many parents in the area who want their children to attend Lake St George Elementary School because of all the wonderful things they do each year for the students and the community as a whole.
Lake St. George is an amazing school. I feel that my children are not just students, but part of a wonderful family.
The faculty and staff at Lake St. George are absolutely wonderful. They show genuine care and concern for the children. They are constantly exploring new and exciting ways to teach. They instill core values, respect and responsibility as part of the learning process. The school is a true community and my family is happy to be a part of it.
LSG is the best! Great teachers, caring community, and wonderful leadership!
