Lutz K-8 is an amazing community school. A more caring faculty and staff won't be found at any other school. The leadership of Principal Branham is well reflected in the morale of the students, faculty and staff. My experience has shown me that this is a very inclusive school where every child is a priority. There will always be exceptions, no doubt. Parent involvement is encouraged and appreciated. It is no wonder that Lutz K-8 is in demand for school choice and why 5th grade students want to stay on for middle school.

This school is great! Extracurricular activities are available for all grades, teachers are AMAZING, and I had a great time coming to Lutz from kindergarten to eighth grade. Thank you to all staff, teachers, custodians, and especially Mrs. Branham for making my experience here life-changing.

Whomever is giving the stats is WAY off. The class size for Lutz Elementary this past year was amazing over crowded!!!! Every grade level was over the recommended # plus the special education students where added to the class after the count and made it VERY hard for these teachers and fellow students to have a calm learning environment. Very sad situation for such a GREAT school in the past.
