    Lake Lucina has a difficult task of binding together a very transient community. It is an older school (85th in the district) with an all outdoor layout.

    My daughter a straight a student started going there last year it was okay. My only concern was she wasn't getting enough homework compared to her last school I was dissatisfied. We will try again this year if she doesn't receive any homework again this year she will not return

    Lake Lucina is my childs first elementary school experience. It an average school its not great but I supposed it could be worse. The staff seem helpful and the teachers seem caring. My son had a school year of ups and downs. I wish that the after school extended care would focus more on the childrens home work and tutoring instead of games but overall I would consider lake lucina an average elementary school.

    Not thrilled with the school but compared to others in Jax it could be much worse. Some teachers are really nice and caring. The administration is not very friendly. They don't believe in classroom parties. All they are focused on is FCAT. If a field trip doesn't in some way pertain to FCAT they don't want it.

    This was my daughter's first year at this school and it doesn't compare to her last school. I am disappointed with the lack of care from the teachers. My daughter will not be going back next year.

    I believe its a good school over all .The teachers and staff there are trying very hard . Over all I rate it in the mid 90's out of 100.

    The administration was fine but one of the teachers did not believe in providing homework. I withdrew my child.
