Open Quote Lake Country Elementary has a staff of loving caring educators- You can guarantee that this school will not let 1 year of poor scoring on FCAT define what they are about. All you have to do is step on to the campus to know that this is a school of integrity, and renewed focus that loves and cares deeply about each and everyone of their student's academic achievements. I challenge anyone to visit the school and say otherwise. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
