My son was in the Special Education Classroom. I have nothing nice to say, and any statement I do say will be deleted even though my accusations against the teacher and school are verified and accurate. If you have a special Ed student in Okaloosa county-- McCay and private placement.

My two elementary school daughters have attended Lewis for the past couple of years and we love it! The faculty and staff are warm, friendly, and easy to communicate with. They show a lot of concern and encouragement for the students.

My daughter has attended Lewis for the last 4 years. I've never been involved with a school where the teachers, administrators and staff have cared so much for the well being of my child. The communication between the school and parents is excellent. The principals, Mike Fantaski and Jason Driver are down to earth, professional men that welcome any care or concern of the parents and/or students. The small student body makes the people there feel like family. I only wish my other 3 children had attended Lewis.

This is my kids first year at Lewis and they absolutely love it! The teachers and staff are always so friendly. I love that my 3rd grader's teacher, as well as, my 6th grader's teachers are easy to get in touch with if I have a question (I have had many). You can tell they truly care about my kids and that makes me one happy mama! I highly recommend Lewis! It has been such a blessing!

If I could rate this with no stars I would. We have mentioned to the school since kindergarten that we want to get our daughter tested for a learning disability and my daughter is now in third grade. Nothing has been done to help her. The teacher, principal, and counselor will tell you one thing but not follow through. She has been punished for not getting her work done fast enough and it is not fair to her. I do not recommend taking your children to this school.

A very unprofessional school, there is little communication from faculty to parents, I will say that if anyone else has a concern contact your school board, A.S.A.P.

My son attended school between August 2011 and January 2012. I removed him, and placed him in a private school. The positive reviews are very deceiving.

I'm still a student at lewis. I'm going into eighth grade and I don't look forward to high school. I was a dancer for 6th and 7th grade and now i'm a cheerleader for 8th. I highly recommend this School. It will be one of the greatest decisions of your life :D

This has definitely been a disappointing year for us. Our transition from private school has hampered by the style of teaching and lack of communication and support. Unfortunately, the my child is the one that bears the brunt of this misfortune.

My son is on his second year at Lewis and this year I'm not happy with the vice principal calling me to inform me that my son is doing something wrong but doesn't know what he did so he still has to stay after. Teachers see you at the beginning of the year, do there talk about how your child needs help and they tell you that they are concerned so when you find a way to get him help they don't follow through on there end. I loved the school when he was in 6th but this year stinks and I'm looking into privet schools for next year.
