BEST SCHOOL EVER! I went to lee from kindergarten to 6th grade and everyone there is amazing. My brother still goes and my dad taught there. It's the best school ever. SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. NOW.

BEST SCHOOL IN THE WORLD. I am an 8th grader who went to Lee. Everyone who went to Lee always brags about the amazement of this school. The next middle school you go to everyone knows all the Lee kids. Its so much fun. I miss it sooooo much :(

I am graduating the 9th grade this year, and I will always remember Lee fondly. My step-mother is one of the teachers there, so I have spent a lot of time at the school even after I graduated 6th grade. There is an outstanding sense of community at Lee. Everyone knows everyone, which is something that not all schools have but is extremely important. Because of the small class sizes (my 6th grade class had 46 people), students have the opportunity to form strong bonds that will last a lifetime. My fellow classmates are the people that know me the best and I would trust most of them with my life. I can be sure of that. I will not consider anywhere else if I still live in Austin when I have kids.

Lee is a good school. Strengths are that most teachers are strong, there is good parental involvement, and there is a strong administration. Growing edges are that the school does not work well with working parents or single parents-- it seems to work off of a 'one-parent-at-home' model, which is true for many of its families. It is slow to change, dreadfully true for its artistic programming--which lacks any creativity or imagination. It also is completely focused on TAKS preparation, which I'm afraid is beyond the local school's control, really, in this day and age but true nonetheless. I also believe that rotating classes beginning in first grade is not developmentally appropriate, but I know that many parents believe it to be a strength.

Our family will have clocked a decade at Lee before our last child moves on to middle school. During this decade, we have watched and participated in many changes: the fight to keep a sixth grade against district administration initiatives, the swelling student body and closure to transfers, and a change in administrative leadership. The previous commentators' observations regarding social cliques amongst parents and kids is true of any small vocal community. Sixth grade was such an abysmal experience for my oldest for several reasons but the biggest factor was perhaps the fact that the student population dwindles to half which did not provide sufficient social diversity at an age when kids are already painfully self-conscious and struggling to 'fit in.'. I'd give the academics a 'B'. Too many worksheets. Not enough time using a textbook. Unfortunately, middle school in AISD is pretty bleak.

I love this school. Both my daughters have attened this school since the kindergarten. We really enjoy the arts, music and language programs. This year my 6th grader will learn both Spanish and German. It's a really wonderful neighborhood school. Parent involvement is appreciated and I love the emphasis on hands on/experiential learning!

Overall, Lee does not live up to its reputation. On the plus side, it has a great student body and very involved parents, a wonderful library, excellent kindergarten, good discipline, and an outstanding art teacher. Negatives include an overwhelming emphasis on TAKS preparation, unwillingness to challenge students or innovate, abysmal music instruction, and lip service given to Spanish instruction. In particular, there is a strong sense of 'This is the way we've always done it, so we're just going to keep doing it this way.' If students were trusted more and given more opportunities for in-depth academic growth, Lee could really shine. Instead, it seems easier to hand out worksheets, which is a distressing waste of potential.

I have two children who have completed their first year at Lee, one in 4th and one in 6th. The academics have been wonderful and the school makes good use of UT and other learning opportunities within Austin. The music and art programs are beyond anything I've seen at any other elementary school. I'm sad for the people in reviews that said they thought it was cliquish, because we've had the opposite experience. Because the school is so small, everyone knows everyone and there doesn't seem to be enough people to create cliques. There may be parent cliques, but my observation is that is just because they've known each other for so long. As for the kids, everyone is part of one big group, everyone is included. It is a wonderful dynamic for the kids that I am sad that my oldest is done there.

I would say 'ditto' to the clique aspect of the school. I found the other parents to be very snobbish and not welcoming. My daughter, who is a straight A student, did not have a positive experience because of bullying and harassment. I have transferred her out of Lee after the administration was not willing to remedy the situation.

This school gets results with most children. That is indisputable. However, they are all about results. Children face departmentalization at the first grade--three different teachers for academics plus the art, music, PE, etc. If your young child is not ready for the more depersonalized model of a middle school, choose another area schools doing a fine job of academics and instilling a love for education. Know that relations with parents are impersonal as well. Parental involvement is high, but only in implementation.

Lee Elementary is a school rich in academics and promoting students to be public speakers and advanced students. Lee is known for its school productions and high parental involvement. If you are looking for a strong academic school that helps promote your child's social growth them Lee is the school for you. Very close to the UT Austin campus, it serves many of the children of the UT professors and the UT staff.

When we first moved to Austin to begin seminary we were actually looking at Pease instead- but as we researched Lee more and discovered it has had a Blue Ribbon rating- we decided to look into it further- we have been very pleased- size is a huge factor, we know so many parents and students because of the relative smallness of the school- to see so many families walking and riding to school together gives the school community that something special we have been very pleased with the academics, the special programs, field trips and the staff. If you want your child exposed to an eclectic mix of people, to be challenged to learn and competently taught- this is your school.

Our oldest son started Kindergarten this Fall (2005) at Lee Elementary and we are very excited about the quality of the program and the teachers. Couldn't be happier!

When I was making the decision to move into the AISD it was hands down a decision to send my son to Lee. Not only the historical school ratings, but the size of the school, the longevity of teachers who have been at Lee, the witnessed numbers of parents who walk and ride bikes with their kids to school helped in my decision. Since at Lee, my expectations have even further been exceeded. The academic standards are good and the parental commitment to keeping the specialty teachers is paying off with the amount of attention to the special programs for each grade level. I am very pleased with the choice we made to move into this school's neighborhood and am grateful for my son's love of learning at Lee.

Overall, we are very happy with the school. They use the nearby university to their advantage and provide a wealth of cultural events to the kids. I do feel they are caught in the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' mode and feel they refuse to try new things/programs.

I admitt I am not a parent but I am a fifth grade student who has just graduated from Lee and is moving on to Kealing next year. Although I'm not an adult I believe my views should count too. The teachers are wonderful. The level of academics was also very high. My teachers were always challenging me to excel. My favorite teacher in the school is the art teacher Ms. Kennedy. She's the best teacher ever!! Once a day we have special areas rotating on a three day basis. Each room has a class parent who helps organize fund raisers, partys etc. Over all Lee is a great school and i will always remember it fondly!

I have just left this school for Kealing Middle School, and I believe that the school is not very good. Kindergarten and fourth grade were good, but I believe that there is a social clique and people feel left out or unimportant. I did.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
