This is a wonderful neighborhood school with highly dedicated and experienced teachers. The principal is awesome!

Lee cultivates a close-knit parent community, in part due to the absence of busing. Parents drop off and pick up - leading to a lot of interaction with the teachers and one another. The PTA raises a lot of money for the school which fund supplies and campus improvements. The building and campus are both old, but charming. The low equity ratings on this site reflect, in part, enrollment from an orphanage in district. The staff does take special care to reach these students but often they are coming from seriously disadvantaged backgrounds.

My family LOVES Lee Elementary! When my daughter was having a tough time reading the school stood with her! From her teacher to the principal they spent 1 on 1 time assisting her. She’s progressed tremendously, and I’m beyond thankful! Little sister will be joining this coming school year, and we’re excited!

While I am not always particularly impressed with the approaches to "standard" subjects such as math, the community at Lee is simply fantastic, and the social emotional learning here - which when it comes down to it, is really the crucial thing for an elementary school - is just amazing. We love Lee, including all teachers and the leadership!

This school is centrally located and benefits from having a lot of students whose parents have a connection to UT. There is sometimes a class mismatch between the academic credentials of parents and teachers at the school which leads to some friction on curriculum. The parents can be overbearing in this regard and the principal and staff tend to do a good job keeping them from overrunning the place, but it is a delicate balance since the PTA brings in substantial resources and pays salaries for some teachers.
