Lee Elementary is a great school. Both of my kids have been going for 2 years. The PTO helps a great deal with additional funding opportunities. There is staff on board that is specific to learning disabilities that other schools in the area do not have.

Lee Elementary is the worst school my kids have been too. If you have a general concern about your child you will be crucified and your son will be written up for every little mistake he makes. My kids will not return to this school. Principle doesn't do anything nor does she know anything about whats going on in the school.

My daughter has been at Lee for four years, and I am also a teacher at Lee. I have been very impressed with the leadership at Lee and the dedication that the staff has on providing the best education possible to all students. Lee has a very diverse staff and student population.
