Do not walk, but RUN from this school. We moved into the area this past year and had three children at LFK. We removed them to homeschool for the last three months because this school is so bad. Our children reported that they and other students were yelled at, publicly shamed, and intimidated by teachers. They were also made to run laps for late homework. The instructional quality was poor, with limited options for extracurricular activities, and the environment inside the building was drab and depressing. We visited the classrooms on more than one occasion only to witness firsthand that, indeed, the children were yelled at and shamed in front of their peers. Speaking with the principal had little effect, although she listened sympathetically. Our one child's kindergarten teacher seemed nice; however the magnitude of poor behavior from our other children's teachers, in addition to the overall poor instructional quality, eclipsed that completely. Do not subject your child to this school if you can avoid it.

I am very pleased with this school. My child is a rising 5th grader and has been with LFK since the 1st grade. We've dealt with a host of issues related to his development and the school teachers have been very involved and helpful.

I have a daughter in this school. She absolutly loves it. she enjoys going to school. The class size is smaller she gets a lot of one on one attention from her teachers. I feel I have easy frequent communication with her teachers. She is excelling at all of her requirments and the things she needed help on in the begining of the school year we were able to address, overcome and correct quickly.

We have a son attending this school and all of our experiences have been positive. The teachers are easily accessible and readily address parents concerns. There are very little extracurricular activites but there are quite a few PTO sponsored activities that offer child-friendly outtings for the whole family.

We have 2 children in this school and absolutely love it. We moved from Gainesville where schools where over crowded now or children are in smaller classes with more one on one attention. The teachers are kind and encouraging and everyone is friendly and I have never had a problem getting feed back about my children's behavior/school work. We have already decided we will stay in this school district when we move so or youngest will be able to attend this school. The Binnix Family

Parental involvement is mediocre. Overall, the school's academics are terrible...few extra activities. No enhancing programs outside of classroom for children that are above average. The teachers are mostly unfriendly, uninformative and unprofessional. We are very unhappy and seeking to move very soon.
