Lewisville Elementary teachers do strive to improve their students work. Both of my daughters attend this school and most programs are geared to help the accel. The children being left behind are not being assisted by their families. As a volunteer in classrooms I have seen the differences between students whose families are engaged and those whose families are not. It is horribly sad to see the failures and know the teachers have only so much influence but can recieve all of the blame.

I am somewhat disappointed in LES. Before my children attended LES, they attended other elementary schools and there was more opportunities to excel. This year has definately been an adjustment. Some of the key staff need to focus on the betterment of the child instead of their position. When it comes to children, issues are not always as clear as black and white; there are gray areas as well. Anyone in education should know this. When workloads become overwhelming and staff forget the importance of impressions and the power they have to create lasting impressions in children's lives, it is time to consider another career or to seek additional training.

We moved to LES at the beginning of last year. My child has some special learning needs. It took awhile to get that straight but, then my child seemed to do much better. In my opinion the parents need to be more involved with their children and the school (the teachers can only do so much). Overall after one year attending your school I am happy with the progress my child has made. Thank you!!

I have a child that attends LES. Most of his experiences there are good ones. Although i do feel that some of the staff members could be a little friendlier. I also experienced that more of the parents should become more involved with their child's education. You can learn alot from a child's home life thru his/hers actions at school. I feel that this is something more parents need to consider too.

My children are going to LES. For the most part the teachers and staff are great. There are some things I would change,(for example teachers need to walk around and monitor playgrounds instead of standing or sitting in chairs at recess time).

Lewisville Elementary is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers. Parents are dedicated to the education of their students as our parent/teacher conference attendance rate is 99%. The students are well-behaved and excited learners. You could not ask for a better group of students. The small rural setting is so conducive to a family and student friendly learning environment. I invite all families to spend the day with your child. Yes, there are some 'bad apples (teachers)' and unfortunately it is hard to weed these from our harvest. Don't let the unprofessional behavior of a few cause false judgement of LES. It is a fine school.

I have three children who have attended or are attending LES. I am and have been very pleased with the teachers, administration and curriculum. The school is small and that does limit some activities. However, does one want quality or quantity? In my opinion, Lewisville is of the highest quality!

Parents need to get off of the complaining and volunteer more. There are a lot of fine teachers, solid fine arts programs, and parents, and I wish more parents would spend at least 1 full day at their child's school before judgement is passed.

Too much free time for children, not enough academic instruction. Some of the teachers will not look at you or speak to you. With the new law going into effect for more physical activity, I do not know how they are going to incorporate it into the day.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
