    Lemon Bay High School was terrific in the old school building which my daughter liked because it had character. Of course it was very old and needed to be rebuilt. I can only imagine how wonderful it will be with the new buildings and technology. From the office workers to the principals the staff was pleasant and caring. The teachers really want the kids to succeed. Their career guidance counselor is a jewel; the best I've ever known.

    LBHS is being completely rebuilt from the bottom up. The new school is very close to completion will be state of the art and beautiful. I am glad my daughter went here. Their arts program particularly the theatre program is one of the best in the state. There is an overall atmosphere of acceptance among the students with regards to race religion and sexual orienation. Some of the administration and teachers are set in their ways and can be difficult to deal with but overall the experience my daugher had was amazing. Is it a perfect school? No. However it is better than most and I highly reccommend this school.

    The teachers are ok. Its a small town school with small town aspirations. The 9th grade registar is a Nurse Rachet. Not a nice person. Everyone else I came in contact with is pleasant. My child will be attending HS elsewhere next year

    I am curently atending LBHS and it is awsome it is old (but not filthy like another post had stated) but i personaly like that because of all of the history it holds. We also have a great honors education program it may not be the biggest but its the best. and although all football team has been on a loosing streak since it was built all of our other sports are good. Expecaly our vollyball team(State Champ runner up 08 baby). But the #1 reson you should send your students to LBHS is Mr. Ramsy he truly inspires and mentors every student who walks through his door.

    I love this school.. I have had three of my 6 kid in lbhs and they love it as well yes it looks old gee my husband went there and he's no young chickin but the staff there rock and they alwways have things going on for the teens. Lbhs keeps them busy and keeps them learning and keeps them happy its not whats on the outside that counts its all that good that happens under the roof!

    This is the best Charlotte County School. Although I am a graduate of Charlotte High this is the school I prefer my children attend. The staff are always helpful and really care about the children.

    The academics at Lemon Bay are not the most impressive however a wide variety of courses adds interest. Strong Science and Physical Education programs (my daughter lost 15 pounds from participating in daily PE- and she hates sports!) kept my daughter loving school. The athletic programs seem okay the drama department is always putting on one show or another. Facility wise the school is aging quickly but a young and youthful staff give energy and bring excitement to the school. Besides my daugther loves her teachers because 'they are so cool!'

    Basic studies only poor leadership in athletics and Deans school is old and filthy too many portable classrooms. Experience among teachers and leaders extremely low. Very little community involvement. Academics quality poor very few alternative electives. Very poor use of judgement when appropriating school funds. School not recommended.

    although this school is sometimes referred to as the 'wonderbread' school because of the lack of majority overall i am happy with my child going here. every school has its weakness but i feel lemon bay is one of the better high schools to go to in this area.

    Lemon Bay High School is the only public h.s. in Englewood. The atmospere is good and has a small-town feel. Nothing is extraordinary at Lemon Bay but nothing is particularly lacking orwoeful. It is situated firmly in slightly above average in academic programs sports the arts music and parental involvement. Safe consistent yet not all that inspiring.

    This school teaches to the FCAT and not subject matter. It seems to exist solely for testing and sports/extracurricular activities.

    I am really happy with Lemon Bay High School. The teachers and staff are so good with the students they are always willing to go above what is needed. I highly recommend this school.

    I currently attend Lemon Bay and it isnt a great school I don't feel that everything I have to offer is currently being used. Students creativity can be dampered. Teachers try but alot of them have become out of touch with the kids they are teaching. Becasue of that alot of them aeturning to other things that will stimulate them.

    I just recently graduated in 2003 from Lemon Bay. I enjoyed my time there. I do nt believe that Charlotte County is #1 in drugs. I cannot recall at anytime that me of any of my many friends were ever given a survey asking about drug use. No one knows where they got that information because no one was surveyed. It's impossible. Cities like Miami and Tampa or even Sarasota are worse off in drugs than little Charlotte County. So don't look down on Lemon Bay. True it has its share of druggies but the school as a whole is a a fun safe and enjoyable learning place.

    I think it should be noted here that Charlotte County FL children have the highest drug use in the state this includes Lemon Bay High School. I think the dicipline here is awful and teacher-parent communication is terrible. i have my youngest child at this school and my three oldest went up north and believe me there is no comparision in the quality of the teachers overall but especially the discipline area. kids here get away with way too much! I have been very disappointed with my youngest child's education here.

    The teachers are very good. Now with standardized testing more of the studies are geared toward test scores and I think that schools like LBHS suffer; the curricular was broader before to the benefit of students but this issue effects all public schools today. Lemon Bay is still one of the best High Schools in FL. My wife was a teacher and my daughter is a teacher up north now and they agree.

    That school is not what i wanted for my kids.

    My children graduated in 1984 and 1986 and now I have grandchildren that will graduate 2003 and 2005. Most of the same teachers are there and seem to care about the kids. The current principle and the future principle have been associated with this school for that long also. I have been involved with the sports program with both my children and my grandchildren and I have found that these kids are respectfull and mannerly as opposed to so many of the other schools that we have played against.I truely believe that the coaches have something to do with that. Their behavior is exemplery. They need to be commended. It is a shame that this school doesn't get recognized for this.They only get noticed if something bad happens in the school.
