Lake gibson high and middle.. I recently moved here and am very disappointed in the school district. All my sons say the class rooms are disruptive and the teachers don't care.

I don't like this school. Some of the teachers seem to care about the students but there is a large hand full that don't. My child is on the 504 plan for kids with adhd. Not all the teachers uphold the special attention they need and communication with these types of teachers are horrible. I have had ...  Read more

It's a good school with teachers who care, a great administration, and a wonderful music program with great parent volunteers

I really don't understand this school. All the hassle on FCAT is ridiculous and many of the teachers don't take the time to help. The students cause it to be even more chaotic. The low shool funds make things worse. I don't enjoy school at all and wish that I never left my school in Vegas.

It seems to be a good school, especially on paper...but when you see it in action it seems quite chaotic. The school emphisizes on passing your FCATs and not learning in a creative,nurturing environment! It is far from nurturing. My son still wants to attend dispite all the fact friends ...  Read more
