My children absolutely love this school, and I do too. The staff really show dedication and care about the students. The teachers take pride in students trying and will keep track of students after they've left their class. Even the specials teachers take pride in the children's work, arranging events for parents to see progress. There is wonderful communication from the school via newsletters and notes from teachers. Everyone is very active with the children, and when I step on campus, even if other teachers (not those my children have had) don't know my name, they know which children are mine and why I'm there.

This has been an outstanding year for my son. He has recieved several recognitions for doing his best. The school celebrates the success of their students. His teacher has been loving, compassionate, and understanding. She has proven to be a teacher who loves her job and not her check!

Both my boys went here and I DO NOT LIKE IT!!! I feel the school is very unorganized and don't challange the kids,discipline is not forced also didn't do a very good job preparing them for middle school.. Things children need outside the home as well!!!! Teacher actually call my son a name out of stress!!! That is uncalled for and very unprofessional. Thankfully both are in a magna school now..... what a difference. I would not recommend this school at all!!!

This school has an excellent music program with a dedicated teacher using world-class mallet instruments.

We have been very disappointed in this school.There has been virtually no effort to challenge my children beyond what is required by the FCAT. Once my child mastered this material,it was just time to sit and wait. Just be quiet and walk on the green line seems to be the primary concern. However,this concern for discipline seems to end when bullying is involved. My child has been pushed,punched,and threatened with scissors. If this behavior happens to be noticed by a teacher (which is rare),nothing of consequence happens to the bully.The sports seem largely unsupervised. On the positive side,I will say the music and art programs are superior and much enjoyed by my children. There is a lot of parent involvement and a wonderful PTA. The teachers seem well meaning,just overwhelmed with disciplinary issues and underperforming students. This leaves the good students to lose interest in school and not reach their full potential.

Did not care for this school. Seemed unorganized and unable to provide stability for a first time student.

My son has attended Lake Shipp Elementary for 2 years. He enjoys it and doesn't want to be transfered. He feels comfortable and looks forward to most school days. The teacher he has this year is an improvement over last year. Overall, the staff is friendly and helpful and the overall atmosphere is welcoming. Academically, it has room for improvement but overall, we were satisfied.

I think this is a great school. I have one child still in this school and one that left last year. The principal helped out with all my concerns with my children. I have a hyper child and he was getting into trouble and they ALL (principal and teachers)worked with my son and I. I rate this school #1 in my book. Thank you Lake Shipp Elementary for great work
