My grandson will be entering second grade at Lizana Elementary School. When he was in kindergarten, I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with his teacher and aide. Both were excellent. They fully prepared him for first grade - both academically and socially. They also made my husband and me feel welcomed any time we had reason to visit the classroom. They encouraged us to join them for field trips and various events. I can't say the same for the first grade teacher, mainly because seem to be interested in our help. My grandson is definitely ready for second grade, but I don't know to what extent he was challenged to go the extra mile. I think that when parents and/or grandparents volunteer to work with the teacher - in any capacity - it should be encouraged. I wish this teacher had done that.

I have had some very bad experiences with this school. There is alot of turnover with the staff teachers. My daughter has been going to this school since Kindergarten. In that amount of years, we have only come across very few teachers that actually care. My daughter has a learning disability and they have done nothing to accommodate her. She has not excelled mainly because I feel that her teachers did not care. All she was to them was a number and they just wanted her out of their hair. No stopping to help her understand a certain subject, just move on. The ratio is poor, about 1:25 students which I feel is horrible. Maybe if the teachers concentrated more on the students than they did on their little cliques, it would be a nicer school. My recommendation, ask the superintendent for a transfer. I am glad we are moving!

This is the best elementary school in the world! I attended in 1982 and not much has changed. There are basically the same teachers. I'm glad my children attend school there now.I just wish it went through 12th grade! K.Williams

If you have a child attending Lizana Elementary, you are blessed! This is by far, the best elementary school on the coast! I had transferred my 3rd grade son, out of his district, to this school because of constant problems with the other schools administrator. Wow, is all I can say! The difference in teachers and all school employees, (definitely including the administrator,) has been a wonderful breath of fresh air. I must transport my child to and from school each day, but it is so worth it. I feel he is receiving a far better quality education, and is treated with care and respect. My child and I both have the highest regard to all associated with Lizana Elementary. We are fortunate! I can't say enough good. All school administrators could really learn from this amazing school.It was the best move I could've made.
