What people say about LPE....

"When you stand in the hallway and watch the students enter the building, they are smiling! They are happy to be at school- happy to share their day with us, and we’re happy to share our day with them. Then, you watch them walk out at the end of the day, and they are also smiling because in some form or fashion something good has happened here today. Good things happen every day at this school! Simply put… LPE is the place to BE!" ~Joy Robinson, 4th grade teacher

"Lake Park Elementary is set apart from other schools because the campus is filled with teachers who have a genuine LOVE for the students. LPE teachers truly care to see the children succeed and have high standards set for all students. We WANT to be here and we WANT to bring out the best in our students!"  ~Michelle Parkerson, 1st grade teacher

"Students being encouraged and challenged with innovative teaching strategies, while being loved 'like family', makes LPE a great place to learn." ~ Bridget Corbett, Kindergarten teacher

"LPE embraces ALL the UNIQUE and DIVERSE needs of our students in order to nurture and support their growth."   ~Angie Hendley, 4th grade teacher

"I've been a student, parent, and teacher at LPE. It is home. Every teacher I have encountered goes above and beyond to not only teach, but to have a personal relationship with parents and students. The amount of heart at LPE is apparent not only in test scores, but on the faces of everyone who enters the door."   ~ Heather Pettigrew, 3rd grade teacher
