To top all of this LECS is mostly best in education. School it self is not so good. Well in most schools there are EC(extra curriculum) programs. On 2009 the school cut half of the programs. From Computer, odessy of the mind, and many others. Later, starting on 2011 the school cut fencing. 2012, community
... Read more service club was cut. Now the current clubs are student and teacher made clubs Secondly, the students. LECS has magnificent students . Some students are very smart but have disabilities like ADHD, ADD, and others. Those kids are very bright and end up in advanced classes. But some teachers encourage students to not really interact with them in classes they aren't very strong at. Stupidly some student use those kids as references in speeches and projects about disabled and mentally disabled people, exclude them in activities, use their disadvantages as another student's advantage. All though those kids are smart they suffer. The only the principal of the school does is lecture them, make them miss out on classes, and give them medicine Science class is the most diverse classes ever.Science fair is mandatory due to school needing funds Read less

I have been attending LECS since kindergarten and I'm currently in 8th grade. Honestly even though there's a bunch of bird poop and rats here the academics is what matters the most. Last year the 8th graders made 2nd place in the state in writing F-CAT. The staff is definitely NOT racist. Everyone participates

LECS is a wonderful school that consistently out-performs traditional Florida schools. There are many projects, which are a great aid in learning, but they are not the sole basis for grading - there are many assessments that are not subjective, and the grading system is the most comprehensive that
... Read more I have ever encountered. Last year LECS 3rd graders out performed all others in Orange county on the FCATs. Sounds like what they are doing is working! I am very pleased to have been lucky enough to get my daughter into a school that is not just "teaching to the FCATs", where a family atmosphere is fostered, and most everyone seems to share a "pride in ownership". The staff is very open to suggestions from both parents and students. My child did not start school at LECS in kindergarten, but this group is incredible. The principal sends post cards, parents help each other, and there are volunteer "new family liaisons" to help with transitions. I have never witnessed racism (as in local public schools), and our LECS "family" is quite diverse in race religion, and thought. Character education and community service are major concentrations at this little school with a huge heart! Read less

In reading what seems like most of the posts, I am quite surprised. I can see a degree of truth regarding some of the negative comments, but I cannot agree with the extreme tone conveyed. My daughter has been at LECS since kindergarten and she is heading into 8th grade. We love LECS. The school

The school has been a blessing to us. If in reality the problems are worse than how we actually see them, then I will say that my daughter s education has not been adversely effected. Instead we have watched her develop into a capable, high performing student. Read less
