    "Much of the schools ratings and success is due to teaching to the fcat tests. They take a whole week to "encourage" students by celebrating for the fcats with assemblies and walk through the halls chanting and singing "encouraging" songs. This blows my mind, my son reported that two of his classmates had a break down right before testing and my own son shared horrific anxiety the night before the testing and cried so hard about fear of failing. Just really an inappropriate tacit many Florida schools are now participating in. This school is located in a very economically poor district with many families who are broken due to a huge and variety number of issues. At one point, there was an after school fair and I swear, everyone looked like they belonged to the circus. Teachers are OK, most follow through regulations. though many discipline in a continuous humiliating and degrading, don't do this and that, like most of the children are all incapable of understanding. Sorry to say my son attended here for four of his elementary years. Very disappointing, hardly any teacher communication, ect...."

    "LPS is a wonderful school, and the only reason we lived in this area. Mrs. A is the most caring staff member, and she really makes our day every day. The administration staff is great as well, especially the head of the special education programs- Barbara Olsen-Fleming. Our son is autistic, and they were wonderful with him. The 3rd grade class has a swimming week which ends in a lunch stop at McDonald's- we didn't feel comfortable allowing our son to swim without us, and the teacher, Ms. Fersaci, was so nice, she brought McDonald's food back for our son so he wouldn't miss out. Our only issue is the parent rarely sees or speaks to the teachers; most communication is through notes, and weekly class news, which we think is just not enough to know how our kids are doing on an everyday basis. We talk to the school monitors more than the teachers. Still, we would recommend this school to everyone."

    "I am a old student of this school, I am now a Senior at Lecanto High School. I loved my time in Lecanto Primary and think it helped shape me into who I am today. I started the 1st grade there and now I excel above average. I think they worked well with kids that were ahead but did not push them to the extreme. They did well and I admire and thank all of my teachers."

    "At one time this was an excellent school. Unfortunately it now has failed the state qualifications for the last four years and will now pass students to the next grade even if they should need to be retained as they are so intent on meeting the state standards. What ashame they have fallen so far."

Thank you Lecanto Primary School."
