I have a feeling that anyone that has a complaint about Lemm has never sat down and talked to the teacher or administrators. They are very open to listening to what we as parents have to say and even though the answer might be no, they will explain why. Parents need to understand that there are hundreds of students there and the decisions must be made for what is best for the entire school. When it comes to decisions about your individual child, I have always seen that they do what is best for that child, not what is convenient for the school/ teachers/ budget, or even what the parents think is best. We need to remember that they are experts at this and trust that they know what they are talking about. I personally trust them with my children and hope to trust them with my grandchildren.

My opinion about the teachers is neutral. We had a few we really had issue with and a few we really liked. My children don't have any special needs so I don't quibble about the teachers that much. We work with the children each night, so we make sure they keep up to speed. The issue I had with the school is the level of professionalism and compassion from the staff. We came to Lemm many years ago from a very warm environment and were surprised by the atmosphere at the school. One of my children had a complete attitude change about school within the first month. We went from begging to go to school on weekends to begging not to go, on a daily basis. I volunteered at the school for a time and never felt welcome. On the few occasions when I would have to visit the school after I decided not to impose by volunteering, I encountered rude staff. The nurse, in particular, was rude in every encounter I had with her. I cannot understand why people would act in such a way in an elementary school. Especially when my tax dollars are used to help pay their salary. In short, it's an average school. Your children will learn, although it may not be in the happiest environment.

My fifth grader (and youngest of 5 kids) just graduated from Lemm and we are broken hearted to leave Lemm.. The teachers are amazing. They treat every child as individuals with different needs and different aspirations. The office staff is the best I have ever worked with. The front office secretary, Mrs. Price, always greets parents with a smile and my husband and I always feel welcomed. Mrs. McGrath is so helpful and it is obvious she loves the children. The administration is top notch! Mrs. Brown runs a tight ship, but in a very respectful way. She is very trustworthy and you can talk to her about anything. Mrs. Steele joined the staff a couple of years ago and I have seen such a difference since she arrived. The administration is much more cohesive and they really seem to enjoy working together. She has brought an energy of great spirit to Lemm. She works with groups of kids and the kids, parents and teachers seem to truly love her. I had several conferences with her last year and this year and she brings a great deal of wisdom to the table on school and parenting. I know that in the future, I will never find administrators like these two.

Lemm has a group of dedicated teachers and staff working hard everyday to help the students excel academically and make right choices. I have two kids attending Lemm and every time I volunteer or visit on the campus, I feel welcomed. The kids here have calm presence and you know they are in good hands. Mrs. Brown, the principal, and her team would do anything for the kids. It is truly a wonderful environment.

I don't know what the last parent was talking about! My three kids have attended Lemm throughout their entire school career. Like most cases, my kids are definitely not perfect. We have had challenges along the way with all three. I ask for advice from the teachers and administration because I know that they are the experts in their fields, and as a parent that is invaluable to me! They are kind, caring and really know their stuff. The decisions are always left to me and my husband, but we have never gone wrong following the advice of the administration or counselor. I have talked to many parents of students in Klein and Spring, and I know from the bottom of my heart that we have our kids in the right school. I was just up there this morning and the entire school was singing and dancing to get their focus on success. The energy is unbelievable and my kids love it! I also love Lemm as do 99% of the other parents here. Don't let the opinion of one unhappy parent steer you away from a wonderful experience. I am sorry for them, but can't help but wonder the "rest of the story"

The teachers are amazing at least the ones I have the pleasure to work with. The issue at hand is the lack of communication skills from the rest of the staff. They are rude, condescending and patronizing and at times they even try to tell you how to raise your own kid. "They know it all" I am sure everyone understand what is like to deal with people like that. If you dare to complain then you better be ready to deal with the issues that will come from that, I had a friend that moved just to change schools and she says it is much better at Kreinhop!! (is no wonder Lemm is not named on the top schools list) not all of us can get up and move. I made the mistake of moving to this area just so my kids could attend this school without doing my research. I recommend to get all the information about the school and speak to other parents if possible, most will tell you the truth.

This is my kids second year at Lemm Elementary. The love it there and so do I. I volunteer whenever I can and the staff and other parents are so nice and caring for the students. The PTO is great with trying the make the school better and spoiling the teachers whenever they can. Both Principal Brown and Steele are awesome and caring for the students. I am currently trying to become a teacher and hope I can get a job at Lemm and join the wonderful staff. You know it is a good school when a lot of the teachers have been there forever.

I am a new teacher at Lemm Elementary and found it to be the best school I have ever taught at. The administration is amazing, the teachers are caring and extremely hard workers, and the parents are really involved with the school. I am honored to teach with such a great staff and administration.

My family has been at Lemm for 16 years. My oldest started 1st grade a Lemm and after y other two were in 3rd and 5th I decided I loved Lemm so much I started teaching here!

My family and I have been at Lemm for seven years now. Each of my three children have been fortunate to have teachers who care about their students and truly help them when they may need a little extra help. The administrative staff strive to get their students to be as successful as they can. They encourage the students, make them feel welcome and provide a safe environment. Our family appreciates the family functions put on by Lemm and we volunteer to be there for our children as well as the other students.

Lemm Elementary is amazing! I am a former teacher and have taught in several schools. Lemm by far has been the most impressive. Every teacher and administrator is dedicated to the learning and safety of their students. I believe that Lemm Elementary could improve if every student had their own laptop to utilize during school hours.

Lemm Elementary School has dedicated staff and administration who are committed to children focused on learning, instruction and assessment and are blessed to have outstanding parent support and involvement.


Posted September 26, 2013

I have been a Lemm parent going on the 6th year and I just appreciate how much the principal and the teachers do CARE. They are dedicated educators and I am counting it a blessing that both of my children are progressing at the level they should be. The principal has an open door policy and each time if a parent has to talk to her, she will stop whatever she is doing and listen to what the parent has to say. The teachers are just phenomenal and well prepared for the subjects. I can't say enough good things about Lemm and thanks to its teachers and staff, I don't have to send my kids to private school!

Very good school overall. Not sure why they keep missing the Exemplary rating when Haude a few mies away keeps getting it. Overall very positive atmosphere and my daughter loves it. Very friendly and warm feeling. Wishing the academic rigor was greater. Hope with all the high end homes from the Lakes of Cypress Forest being zoned to it Lemm will soon rise back from recognized to Exemplary status.

As a teacher at Lemm Elementary it makes me sad to read a comment like the one listed below. I completely agree with the comment right above it in saying that our administration is one of the best out there. Our principal is a dedicated, hard worker who wants nothing but the best for her staff and students. I have never had to change grade levels and can not recall since being at the school when there has been a lot of changes. If a teacher is changed it is for the benefit of the teacher because her strengths may lie in another grade. Our school is a positive place to work and I know I look forward to going each and every day. Our Expect Success vision this year has pushed kids to perform at their best and think about their actions before doing them. Our administrators have high expectations and all staff members strive hard to reach them. STAAR testing is a whole word in itself and our administration took time out of their days to pull small groups and help build confidence in those students who needed it most. Not many schools can say that about their principals. I feel very blessed to work at Lemm Elementary and could not ask for a better administration.

I have enjoyed all the teachers that my children have had over the past 8 years but many teachers have left. The Principal is a bully to the teachers and needs to leave. There have been so many good teachers who couldn't stand the negative atomosphere that the principal creates. You can feel this when you walk into the school. The students do not receive many services and she refuses to allow parental involvment. She moves teachers around every year. If you aren't willing to sit there and take it from her than the teachers get punished by being constantly moved to different grades. This is NOT beneficial to the students! She has cut out so many grade level activities that really open up the minds of the students and gives the the students another way of learning rather from a book or a lecture. If you don't teach exactly how the principal wants you to teach you better watch out. She will make life at Lemm terrible. The only reason she is still there is because her husband does a lot of fund raising for KISD. She should be gone. The parents need to stand up for the teachers and do what every we can to get rid of her.

Lemm Elementary has been a blessing in our lives. The entire staff from the administrators to the custodial staff invest in the children. My son use to hate school before attending Lemm in 2011. He struggled with school activities due to being dyslexic. When we first met my son's teacher, I was honest about my concerns. From that day on, the school has jumped on board to help my child. I actually had the reading specialist say to me, "You all no longer have to handle this on your own. You and your son have a whole team that can help him overcome his struggles. Enjoy being his parent because you all have a whole team to help with his challenges." What a relief that statement was. Before coming to Lemm Elementary, I was stressed about school for my son, and I was feeling overwhelmed as a parent. The changes that I have seen in my son since he first started Lemm are amazing. His self-esteem has risen,and his skill have approved vastly. The saying, "It takes a village to raise a child" is so true. At Lemm children have that village. The school deserves the best score possible! Parents can expect success with Lemm Elementary!

I have had children at Lemm since 2004 and have always been very active in volunteering as much as possible. The administration, teachers and staff (right down to the custodial and lunch ladies) truly care about the children and greet them by name. I may not have always agreed with how a situation was handled, but it was always done with the long term best interest of the student in mind and I made sure to support this decision in front of my child even if I spoke with the teacher or administrator privately. I have found everyone very open and willing to be flexible in dealing with different learning and behavior issues that they are made aware of. I approach each school year with a teacher letting them know the challenges we have been dealing with and that I am there to help and support them in their efforts. I have been thrilled every year with the communication and problem solving that goes into dealing with my children. Every year has had it's great activities, but the new additions this year of the pep rally, teacher participation and grade parade have really stepped it up a notch. I love that they are teaching reasonable goal setting skills so that the students succeed!

Both of my children have attended the school since Pre-K. I am a very involved parent and speak up for my children. I have found that the teachers do listen to constructive criticism and are very good at replying back. I adore the staff, the volunteers and the principal has been kind and forth-coming when we faced any issues. We might not always see eye to eye with the teacher or principal but I feel that I am respected and my viewpoint is heard. I find that the school is a very loving environment for my kids to learn and grow. They have many programs and events for kids and they do a lot of things to appreciate the teachers. All the teachers know most kids by name, regardless of grade, and that is amazing! I have a lot of respect for the principal, Mrs. Brown, who makes a tremendous effort to include ALL kids regardless of background or financial means in all events sponsored by the school. I just wish the school would allow us to request teachers we feel would be a good fit for our kids. The one thing I feel Lemm needs is a complete makeover. It doesn't look as "trendy" as some of the newer schools. Overall, I would recommend the school for excellency!

My kid loves this school and her teacher. I was very worried about going into a new school, but my child has been so happy from day 1 and has learned a ton of stuff in just a short few months. I find my child to have a great teacher. My kid loves going to school and has advanced so much! I also like talking to the principal and vp. They seem to always welcome me to just talk if I need to discuss something I am worried about. This school you get to talk to the principal, she never gives you the runaround like other places. They also have the nicest people upfront!

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.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. 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.
