I am utterly disappointed by the school. It is a factory, drilling test standards into our children's heads with zero regard for the development of several important skills, including creativity, enthusiasm, and excitement for learning. It seems that no one is interested and going above and beyond to give our children the well rounded and developmentally appropriate educational experience they deserve and are more interested in doing the bare minimum and passing the buck. The school community is closed off and not interested in generating ideas that would help make the school a better place. There are many improvements that need to be made, including leaks in the roof of the school that have obviously been there for several years. There are some good hearted teachers who do try to do their best for our kids, but the system and environment make that very difficult to accomplish. There are many great schools out there, unfortunately for my children, RE Lee is not one of them.

The schools Leadership needs its priorities greatly reorganized. The school did not meet expectations, at all. However, the front desk workers are very kind and efficient and they have some caring and well rounded teachers. The school has great potential under different authority.

The great thing about this shool is that you can chek in whenever you need to. I have had 2 kids atend this school. The politics are rediculous and I have found that it is more important to monior talking than making sure some of the kids are reading on their grade level.

We have 2 kids at REL school and we love the teachers, principal and the high standards of education. My 4th grader has 30 tough spelling words each week and he thrives on learning them. The best elem in Middle TN!

Both of my stepsons attended and I was very pleased with the insights of the teachers. They went beyond what was in the books and taught the 'whole' child. A wonderful school and town.

We love this top rated school and actually moved to the specific neighborhood we moved to to be in this school district. The principal cares and the teachers really educate your children. They taught my first grader not only to read to have a passion for reading. We have to force him to put down the books and go to bed, he just cannot get enough. Absolutely the best elementary school in Middle Tennessee!

Robert E. Lee Elementary School is a fantastic school! The children are taught in a safe, clean, supportive, and caring environment. Innovative to traditional 'time tested' classrooms are found in this school. Lead by a wonderful principal, the teachers are what any parent would hope for their children. The staff, teachers and principal work very hard to ensure that each students receive the best education possible. I feel very fortunate to have my children attend Robert E. Lee. It is an excellent school!
