    My experience so far is that the office staff is horrible they are nice the first day I went in to drop supplies and they said i needed an appointment to see the teacher. The first day I went to the school there was a parent that was mad and now I understand why he got so mad at them. His teacher is alright have more experiences with her I wish i could transfer him to another school.

    Wonderful staff who are dedicated to the students preparation. All of my children excelled through the rest of their primary education and went on to college.

    My daughter is in first grade and she love her teacher Mrs. Hill she is really good with the kids . I volunteer in her class room and I really like the way she teaches . This is our second school and I was really scare that my daughter wouldn't like it but I was relief that she loves her teacher and her friends. From a military family we are great full for everything you have done and also for the smooth transition .

    Lee Hill Elementary School My Daughter graduated to 6th grade from Lee Hill Elemantary school. I Loved the teachers there from first grade while my daughter was struggling to read simple words - Mrs Musselman worked with her one on one to get her where she needed to be - all the way thru her 5th grade year when Mrs Sanchez was a delight to speak with and work with on many subjects. The principal Mrs Cunningham was always very helpful and cheery when we saw her - she greeting the children with respect. Not only were the children well rounded in class as far as what they were learning but courtessy was taught at this school as well. .My child was better prepared for 6th grade than I ever expected she would be.. Thanks to the teachers and faculty of Lee's Hill Elementary school. Thanks for all your hard work - we miss you! echarran PTO was also awesome in this school - with the yearly fundraising event that won qualifying children a Limo ride to lunch in the community.. my daughter won this trip 5 times.. I don't think I've ever been in a Limo that many times in my whole life.

    My daughter is now in second grade and absolutely loves the school! we had to move from out of state in the middle of her kindergarten year; everybody helped her get used to the new schedule and class her teacher was awesome and communication since then has been top notch! We get a calendar at the beginning of each month with upcoming events plus a weekly newslettar from the teachers and Thursday folders with her work and paperwork that needs to be taken care of. Highly recommended!

    I have been a room parent and a member of the PTO for several years. This schools has great pride in the teachers staff leadership volunteers and of course the students. The school continues to support each other in ways with the primary focus of higher educational goals for the students. I have spoken to parents of other schools in the area and Lee Hill has the best support network in comparison. Yes I would recommend this school to anyone who is seeking wonderful educational support for your child.

    I spend a great deal of time volunteering at Lee Hill - I've never been discouraged to come in and pitch in! My son's teachers have been diligent and creative in helping us to tackle his reading challenges and help him succeed.

    Not very happy with our experience here so far. Parent involvement has been discouraged staff is not very receptive to feedback or change and if your child is bright or gifted this may be a poor experience. After transferring from another district our child feels as if he is not learning anything this year and it seems that there is nothing more that can be done. Having experienced. Having experienced 5 elementary schools over the past 20 years this one has been one of the most unfriendly... so far.
