This school is horrible. The teachers truly are not concerned with the students education at all. The grading system is completely wrong and the staff will not own up to any wrong doings. The math and reading scores are absolutely horrible. The teachers never respond to any emails and they never contact you about how your child is doing. This is not acceptable at all. Everything is being ran by a computer system that has many errors and the staff denies any wrong doing at this school. Homework is never checked at all and there is no one on one teaching. This school needs to really go back to the old method of teaching. THE STAFF IS COMPLETELY FAILING OUR CHILDREN AND THEY DONT CARE AT ALL. I have heard so many excuses from these teachers and I am starting to lose patients with our education system. More parents need to speak up on this matter. If you don't speak up then the staff continues to ROB our children of real education that is much needed. These new generations of teachers are truly failing our children.
I really like NLMS! Teachers,principals,staff&other friends!! I also enjoy facs!! From:Jessie Poe Febuary 22, 2011- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nichols Lawson is a wonderful school where the administrators, teachers, staff and parents focus on keeping students safe while offering them an above average education, life skills, and the importance of respecting self and others. I am proud to have a student at NLMS!
This school is a fantastic school. It is a safe school. And everyone is very friendly. The teachers are wonderful. I love it.
This is the best school any child can go to the teachers are very helpful if your child is failing the teachers set up a plan to get your child on track, their clubs are just amazing it's fun and educational at the same time I come home with a smile on my face everyday. I am improving on my school work and yes I do see the improvement!
This school is run absolutely terrible. The principal of the school is totally unaware of what goes on in the classrooms. There are also a lot of discipline problems at this school.
This is a very troubled school as reflected by it's scores. Note that on a standard curve it would get an F in both Math and Reading, if you looked at the two schools that formed it. It has not even posted scores in these areas since it was formed, even though it has been formed for over 2 years. I am aware of one classroom fight in my son's class this year, homework is minimal. The principal does not demand technology to be used, it is not consistently used by teachers, and the homework website is often down. Critical issue because without constant e-mail and phone contact with teachers, you will not know your child has a problem til too late. If your child misses school, you are unlikely to be notified until the next day so don't expect them to help detect a child abduction or truancy.
