This school is top notch! Administrative staff is wonderful, you couldn't ask for better communication between staff and parents. They truly care about their students. I can honestly say that I've always felt that my children were always pushed to excel here. We love Mrs. Kasper and Mrs. Bonfanti! If I had one thing to nag about, my 3rd grader 2012-13 did not care for his teacher. I don't like to single people out so she will remain unnamed. I would have to agree that she is a little stern and by the books for an elementary school teacher. He was the only one that didn't seem excited about class, which in my opinion is a must. When they are in that age it's good to make learning fun and exciting! The students are less likely to lose interest. He was well educated nonetheless. Definitely earned it's "A" rating.

This is my last year here! i am soooooo sad..... From all the great field trips, like Epcot, Medieval Times, the zoo, and many others, to the great staff (stout out to Mr. Wisdom), this is my favorite school! I will be going to Bridgewater next year, and am hoping that they will have the same great experience waiting for me.

We moved to Florida t the beginning of the 2007 school year - so this is our 3rd year at Lake Whitney. The school is wonderful. Very caring teachers and staff, a very active PTO and a lot of family involvement. I have 3 children and so far we have been in grades K through 4 and all have been terrific experiences.

We moved to the area in December and were a little weary about putting our Kindergartner in a public school. As it turns out, it was the best decision we could have made. Our son has a new optimism for school and is excelling in everything he does. We owe it all to the excellent staff and LWE and his K teacher, Ms. Winders, who we love very much! She is great!

I have a child that has attended LWE since kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade. Excellent teachers, staff, and leadership. Without question a 5 star facility. I would encourage any parent to consider LWE.

This is an awesome school, with a staff that is very involved and organized. Drop off and pick-up times are always smooth and well run. Low teacher-student ratios provide excellent interaction and communication with the parents is daily. Math and Reading programs allow students to excel at their own pace. Due to the great PTA and excellent parental involvement, their are volunteers in every classroom as well. Area after school programs love this school also, due to the excellent organization when picking up children for after school activities, which is a great comfort to a working parent. Thank you, Lake Whitney, Mrs. Prince, and all teachers for making this such a wonderful, safe, and fun learning evnvironment for my children!

This a great school. It has an involved administration and staff who are intent on structure and increased learning (as indicated by Lake Whitney advancing on FCAT tests this year).

I have two children at Lake Whitney, both since Kindergarten. They are now in second and third grade. The involvement with the parents is tremendous and am pleased as a single father that the dads are also very involved. The Teaching and Administration staff are all very professional and approachable. I will hold any plans I have on moving until they are out of grade school. Mrs. Bender and the rest of the management team are very courteous and show excellent leadership skills. The biggest reason for my comfort at Lake Whitney would have to be the fact the the teachers are genuinely interested in there professions. They actually come across like they enjoy teaching our young kids and attitude is 90%. Kudos to the staff! Barry Jamieson

Both of my children have attended Lake Whitney since kindergarten and we couldn't be more pleased with their progress. When we moved to Winter Garden, my son transferred to Lake Whitney from a private Christian school in the middle of his kindergarten year. I was nervous about how he would adapt, but he fit right in. I think he was provided with more challenging assignments than what he was getting in the private school he attended. The teachers are professional, well educated and truly care about their students. The parent involvement at LWE is amazing too.
