LMES is an excellent school. The teachers are all wonderful and it has the most caring principal. The parents are very involved with their childrens' educations. Our children are receiving a top notch education.

My children both attended LMES for a year until we had to move. We began half way through one year and left half way through the next year. We were so sad to go! The staff, teachers and parents were exceptional. Having been there for two separate school years we were able to experience a variety of teachers. The education that my children received was incomparable to anything they had before or have had since. What a wonderful experience we had there. I can't say enough good things about the school!

Lake Murray Elementary School is an outstanding school with wonderful teachers, faculty and administrators. I am the parent of two boys currently attending LMES. My children actually look forward to attending school each and every day! The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in LMES children. The principal is a great example of what a strong leader is all about. LMES believes children should be life-long learners and responsible citizens. Lake Murray is a school where 'everyone cares to learn and learns to care.' Thank you LMES for teaching, guiding and encouraging my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence needed to be life- long learners.

The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
