I think the school is on the right track. There are not really any discipline problems and the teachers all know the students. I like the small feel of everything at the school.

Lanett Jr. High is a neat place to work and learn. We have new electives this year: drama, journalism and computer applications. The school is small and we all work together. School uniforms really make our students stand out in a crowd.

I feel my children get more attention since the school is so small. The teachers are nice and the rules are enforced no matter who you are.

The school is small and I feel like my child gets a quality education. I like the fact that each student takes a reading class where the students read novels and do projects. Their English class can focus on writing and mechanics.

I was a teacher at LJHS, and LHS. There is really a lot of potential for this school to be great, but individual child discipline is the main problem that keeps progress from happening. There are a few teachers that should probably be replaced, but I'd estimate that 90% of the current teachers are wonderful, and work as hard as they can for these kids. The kids are simply not selfm-motivated, and have a tough life outside of school life. I'd rate it 5/10
