Lee has gone a long way. We are sponsored by the Chicago Bulls and BMO harris bank, and we have gotten to meet some players. We have also (my class in 6th grade, im going in 7th now) been on the news. We have gone up greatly in test scores because of the wonderful teachers there and because of the great learning programs and experiences we are now able to have thanks to our new principal Ms. Lisa and assistant principal Ms. Escobar. I love Lee so much. It is so wonderful to go there.
As an alumnus of Lee, I am saddened to see this school take a turn for the worse over the past several years. Despite rumblings to the contrary, Mrs. Arroyo has indeed helped Lee improve academically since she took the reins from her predecessor. In her first year, Arroyo was able to improve test scores across all grades by 10% or more. Regardless of personality or leadership style, the facts are undeniable. However, problems at Lee remain and continue to multiply. Students here are still failing to make Adequate Yearly Progress in test scores, a federally-mandated requirement. But why? By failing to meet requirements, Lee receives federal money to improve its substandard performance. The problem, quite simply, is inadequate teachers. This school's staff needs a thorough overhaul if Lee's students are to have any chance at success.
I really enjoy this school. Thius school is caring. They have a lot of activities after school. I was in the 6th grade their the teachers ms. hernandez and Mrs.Jamen were the best caring and polite. they only thing i hate is the principal Ms. Arroyo. She really has to go!! Overall I love this school its the best!!!! _:)
Lee school is exceptional. The staff is tremendous. Generally speaking, the teachers care. The teacher aids are as dynamic as the teachers. In some cases the aids are the backbone. Mrs. Pica is the best
The Teachers are skilled experts who are prepared and work hard to ensure that students enjoy learning and are actively engaged. As a teacher candidate who has observed many schools, I am very impressed with this school, the teachers, and the students.
