Lewis and Clark is an excellent school. The entire staff goes above and beyond to provide a loving and structured environment. My children absolutely loved their teachers at L&C and even beg to go back there to visit. I don't believe the county provides adequate supplies due to budget cuts, so the teachers and students love it when parents help out in this area.

We came from another school in spotsylvania 3 years ago, in tears and ready to homeschool. Lewis and Clark has been the best thing that has happen to us and we are so glad to be there. The special education dept. took us in and did all the evaluations for my son to get him where he needed to be BEFORE the school year even started. All of his teachers have been wonderful and even the assistant principal who retired after his first year still ask BY name how he is doing when we see her in town. I will NEVER have a bad word to say about this school and I sing its praises to anyone who will listen!!!

My daughter is in the 1st grade. I would say that this school is just --- well, a school. In the 2 years that my daughter has been a student here, I have not been impressed at all. The teachers do not correspond with the parents, they send out notices for events the day before - no time to plan! The school supply list is absolutely insane! Another local county doesn't require HALF of what this school does. Sharpie markers for 1st graders?! More like for the teachers!! The supplies are either for the teachers, the school store and/or for the dead beat parents that can't afford to buy their own kids supplies. So what do you do? Send very little supplies and have your kid take the heat or bite the bullet and buy what you're asked to. I wouldn't have a problem with the supply list if we put the kids names on everything - but you don't. That's proof enough it isn't meant for YOUR CHILD. Let's see - what else - the lunch menu and breakfast menu is NEVER accurate. The office allows children to be picked up without asking for ID - scary right?! I will be very glad when we can move from this school!!!

This is possibly the best school we have been at. The special education is a little rough on the edges, but otherwise great. The teachers are wonderful. Mr. Scoot Prek-4 Ms. Scott for 1st, Ms. Huckstep 2nd, Ms. Covington 3rd, Ms. Blonsky 4th, and Ms. Bauers 5th

We love Lewis & Clark! My son will be in 3rd grade this year and so far he has had the best teachers that match with his learning level. He has been reading above his grade level since Kindergarten, his math skills are above average and he LOVES science. What more could you ask for academically.

Lewis and Clark is the best school in Caroline County The Teachers are excellent with the students. they helps all student if the parents are respossible to meet them, because the good communication between parents and teachers are important, For me always when I sent e-mails about ask about homework or something my daughter don't understand, they responded it and to be able to help . The teachers are polite and motivated to students to keep going. my older daughter was student there and my younger daughter student in this school. She was Honor Roll in 4th grade. I proud of this school and I strongly recommend.

I purchased many school supplies for 4 grandchildren at the start of school Before the year was out one of them ran out of a note book . The teacher did not have another one to give him. I was of the understanding the large amt of supplies was for the year.

My son has special needs and they are very helpful and work well with parents. My son loves his second grade teacher and I have had no problems with communication at all.

The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
