Academically this school is great, as are many of the teachers. Unfortunately there are some bigoted teachers who claim to welcome all but in reality are biased against all but the WASP children/families. Racism and xenophobia rule amongst the few! Office staff when we visited this prospective school were very unfriendly. I understand that arriving at the exact time for an appointment is optimal, but to be subjected to eye rolling, pen throwing, and general anger for being a five minutes EARLY is unacceptable. Be professional! Sadly these are our memories of Lake Pointe. Our children will not be attending despite the school's academic successes. Life is about more than a grade on a piece of paper.

We have been proud parents of two (son and daughter) LPE students for the last 8 years. This is truly a great neighborhood school with excellent parent and community support. The outstanding school staff, parent involvement and community support combine to make this one of the best elementary schools in Austin.

Our son has attended K, 1st, and is now in the second half of 2nd and LPE has been simply outstanding so far. Most other parents we talk with feel the same way. I find one of the poor reviews below hilarious that the person doesn't like the use of dodge ball....they obviously aren't from around here thinking we've done away with it - it's my son's favorite part of PE! We've had parents who send their kids to private schools comment they are very surprised at the quality of education and activities LPE students get for 'free' (of course we as taxpayers are paying for it, so it is certainly not free, but no 'extra' private school tuition required).

My son is in his second year at this school and we are thrilled with it. The principal is innovative, fun and truly accessible to both students and parents. The parent involvement is the best in the entire district and the PTO uses their fundraising money for extras like an outdoor classroom and Spanish for all kids. (The only school in the district to do so.) We couldn't be happier!

This is a really great school with awesome community support. We have been very impressed with the challenges and the encouragement to do their best that the teachers and staff give our kids daily.

My daughter is now in second grade and she loves her school. Each of her teachers she has had have been great including the ones who teach music and arts/crafts/sience projects. Every morning all the children meet in assembly for announcements and other activities. We moved from our ranch to this subdivision because of this schools reputation and have no regrets. The school and community are very involved with after school activities such as carnivals and talent shows.

Overall a pretty good school academic wise, but daughter was new to the school at the beginning of the year, and no one assisted her with where to go, how to get lunch, and common procedures. Teacher hardly ever responds to e-mails from parents. Child claims that teachers are nice one day and very moody and cranky the next. Lack of common sense witnessed a few times so far this year 06-07. Dodge ball in PE? I thought we all did away with those horrilbe memories in the 70's!

It is a great school. They have a new outdoor classroom that is great for the kids. It has a massive field for after lunch with basketball courts,ect. It is two stories and the staff there is wonderful.

Our kindergarten teacher is very involved with her class and continually challenges them (simple spelling homework and tests, money recognition, simple math). We are comparing schools across states (Az - Tx) and have come to the realization that Lake Pointe compares favorable with all Phoenix schools. In kindergarten our child has already met many of the requirements for the first graders in Az.

We moved to Lake Pointe due to the LTISD reputation and were estatic when they built LPE, but after our children's experiences we are extremely unhappy and are trying to move out of the district. We are especially unhappy with the district's choice of school principal.

My daughter transferred to Lake Pointe Elem. from the neighboring highly acclaimed district (Eanes ISD). She was immediately welcomed by teachers with that special quality of 'positivity' & a real love of working with children. Their attitude of joy at being at this school was shared by the students. My child was eager to go to school each day, felt confident, grew socially & academically; in fact made near-perfect scores on the TAKS statewide achievment test. The parents do an outstanding job of supporting students & staff, an extra advantage of the school being in the wonderful Lake Pointe neighborhood. This school lives up to its TEA exemplary rating in all aspects.
