I think LCPS is a good school, the teachers are very caring and considerate of the kids, parents and their families. I have had grandchildren attend this school with great success.

school leadership is weak at best. the teachers are inconsistant and do not apply the same principles throughout the body.

The faculty and staff are very approachable and dedicated. The PTO is very active, but they are always looking for new volunteers. Academically, the school is great, but they don't get a lot of social time. Only the 3rd graders have recess. 4th and 5th grade has a 10 minute break and assigned seats at lunch. Also, most people don't live near the school, so the bus rides can last over one hour.

Lee County needs to spread it's schools out into the county. The school board is trying hard to make it a hometown school feel, but we are in growing times and need more schools out of the city of Leesburg. Locating all of the schools there is a traffic hazard twice a day. Plus it is out of the way for you to attend things in the school. This school also desperately needs more palyground equipment and swings.

I am at LCES every single day and I am happy to say that children talk in the lunchroom, in the halls, in the classrooms, at PE, Music, Art and on their break! Kids are allowed to be kids all of the time. Rules aren't always fun but to keep a safe environment they need to be enforced. LCES does try to teach respect for others. That is the very reason that I love the school!

I feel this school could greatly improve by better communication. It also needs to work on student interaction. There is no talking in the halls, no talking & assigned seating at lunch, no recess... when do they get to know each other & be kids... As adults, we wouldn't want to spend our days like that.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Georgia administered the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) in reading, social studies, science, English language arts and math in grades 3 through 8. The CRCT is a standards-based assessment, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Georgia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
