Lakemont elementary is a great school for my child and I think that it is a great school for everyone.

I have to say that my daughter had a superb kindergarten teacher. However, my son'a first grade year was such a waste that he has lost interest in school altogether. His teacher was uncommunicative, combative, accused my son of being a 'baby' because if a physical disability. She was only present for 1/2 of the time sand my some as taught by a revolving door of substitutes. He would come home with homework every night and have no idea how to do it. I would literally have to look up on the web how to instruct him. Halfway through the year he told us the process of 'class work' entailed his teacher standing at the overhead and answering the problems on their worksheet. Zero instruction. Now we are in a different state with more rigorous standards and now it is crystal clear how little he learned last year. I suppose that Lakemont is one of the best in Orange County, but if we didn't take this job offer in a different state we would have sold our house just to afford to put our kids in a private school. I am grateful that we were able to afford private school.

The office staff is great and very welcoming. The teachers really seem to care about the kids. They have alot they have to do to keep up with the common core curriculum but do everything they can to encourage and engage the kids. We are very happy with Lakemont.

Lakemont Elementary is a great school. I really love all the Teachers, Principal and staff. They truly care about our students and their success academically. They are very supportive and go above and beyond to make the environment at school one that is caring. Both of my children have attended Lakemont and it has been a great experience for them as well as for me as a Parent.

Principal is terrible. She will give a lot of misinformation. It always good to check florida educational website and check if she is telling you the truth! There are wonderful teachers, and few bad ones.Cafeteria people are very rude and some people of front desk as well. If you child is strugling in learning they will start caring when the child is about to fail.

If you can afford private school, do so. Lakemont isn't bad, but it's still Orange Co. they do intermix kids from other areas, you will run into problems from that. Generally the staff and teachers are nice, but the school will wear you down by 5th grade. The fifth graders are in trailers by the way. The area around Lakemont is snooty and perhaps a bit privelaged. You will have to learn how deal with moms that have no jobs and tons of plastic surgery, or dads that are either overworked or a jerk mostly. I would recommend a private school if you can hack it. And again, I'll put most of the blame on Orange Co., not Lakemont. Individual teachers have been fine, it's the county and administrators that lack good judgement at times.

Cannot imagine how the school or the staff could be any better.

1. Lakemont has a curriculum that is set up so that each child will learn with other students comparable to themselves. Therefore the students who excel in certain subjects won't be held back in their learning while other students catch up. 2. The teachers and staff are always helpful and I have always felt that my questions and/or concerns were taken seriously and that I wasn't wasting anyone's time. 3. The parent involvement at Lakemont is great! It seems as though all the parents care about their childs education and they are willing to help out wherever needed.

My family moved here from another state. My second grade son had attended a private school back in our old state and we were cautiously optimistic about coming to Lakemont. We had heard so many wonderful things about the school and the reviews I had read made me want to send our child to Lakemont. WHAT A GREAT DECISION WE MADE!!!! My child is extremely happy at Lakemont and he is doing very well. His teacher is wonderful, and the Principal knows me by name, as do many of the administrators. We're so high on Lakemont and we look for many wonderful years there, as our daughter is set to attend next year.

I don't have anything to compare it to, but my son and I love Lakemont. Everyone at the school really seems to have 'Lakemont pride'. All the teachers I have dealt with are great, there are lots of volunteering opportunities, and there are TONS of extracurricular activities going on. Everything from book fairs to running club to showing off the kids' art at the Winter Park Christmas tree. They even hand out flyers for stuff that's not going on at the school - for example, a free 'fun run' or a Junior Magic basketball camp. They send out monthly newsletters and periodically will call with reminders about events or anything you need to know. The car riders' drop off and pick up is so efficient, it's unbelievable that this school is run by the government! They do focus a lot on testing, but so far I have no complaints.

Lakemont is like a private school without the cost. The staff is wonderful and the teachers are excellent. There is alot of activities after school, you just have to be involved. We have been involved with Lakemont for the past 6 years and have more to go. We feel that it is a great school.
