    lewisburg elementary middle and high. I have three children two have graduated from lewisburg and one is a junior this year. I could literally cry knowing i only have 2 more yrs to say i am a part of this school. Its not just a school its a family. The teachers love their job and they are so kind to the children. The BEST school in desoto county or anywhere. ) I can not think of one bad thing to say about this school. Its clean and you can literally feel the energy of the staff. The teachers and the entire staff are positive and good to the kids. Its so nice when you walk in the school and teachers and the whole staff call your child by their name with a smile.

    We moved here 3 years ago from Texas. We love this schools. We have a son in 3rd and one in 5th. They have loved everyo teacher every year. No problems in any area. One son is in speech and he loves it. The lunch es are great the parent involvement is fantastic. The principals are caring and just. My boys are quite kids and shy but they have many friends and there has never been any problems with anything in the school in the 3 years my boys have attended. Love it!!!!!

    My wife and I have been extremely pleased with this school. Our son just finished first grade and when he began he was struggling with his reading by the end of the year he was reading at a 3rd grade level and now is asking every day this summer to go to the Library! The facilities are first class and the teachers and support staff have always been very responsive and helpful.

    My son attends this school. While Mississippi has been a big adjustment for our family. The team at Lewisburg School has been nothing short of amazing.

    I have 2 granddaughters in this school and have been amazed at how fast they learn. My 5 year old is reading and my 7 year old is reading on a 6th grade level. I love the caring and wonderful staff.

    I have nothing but praises for the school! My son just completed Kindergarten. His teacher and the assistant were awesome! He has learned so much this year. We look forward to seeing what the future holds (we have a daughter in the Middle School and have nothing but praises for that school as well!) We definately have the best school in the county!

    My child has attended Lewisburg since the first year it was built. I have absolutely no complaints about this school. I could brag on the teachers principals and students for hours. Shout out to the educators to keep up the great work.

    This is our second year at Lewisburg and we are very happy with the education our daughter is receiving. The principals are very supportive and open to parent involvement. The PTO is very strong with lots of parent volunteers. We have had two great teachers with great assistants both years. I do wish the classroom sizes were smaller but I know state funding has a lot to do with that so I write my state representatives. I can't say enough great things about this school--we love Lewisburg Elementary!
