Lees Corner Elementary School was established in 1986 and was named after the Lee family (which included Robert E. Lee), original owners of Sully Plantation and the school site. Lees Corner is distinguished by a bell, donated to the school, which contributes to the sense of community during special events and outdoor student assemblies.
Lees Corner has been known for the quality of its instructional programs and faculty. The Lees Corner community believes that the development of a successful instructional program requires continuous, comprehensive, and collaborative assessment, evaluation, and planning between administrators, faculty, students, and parents. This collaboration ensures that resources and personnel are effectively allocated to maximize the opportunities for ALL children to be integrated into the school community. Lees Corner offers expanded resources for advanced academic students, embraces an inclusionary continuum of services model for students with special needs, and provides services for speakers of other languages students.
An active PTA, parent volunteer program, and business partnerships provide support to the caring and positive learning environment at Lees Corner.
As a professional learning community, staff members ensure a safe learning environment that:
- Promotes kindness, respect, and responsibility.
- Is committed to academic achievement for all students using assessment for ongoing instructional planning, including remediation and enrichment.
- Respects and embraces our school's diversity.
Lees Corner's goal is to provide a challenging, fun, positive, and exciting academic program, based on current research, to develop lifelong learners who are positive participants and productive citizens.
