I have 2 boys at this school and my oldest son has went there for almost 9 yrs. but the last couple years there teaching staff has not been that good, and my yougest son who is in 6 th grade his math teacher only grades on homework and just does a weekly bell work quiz. I send him to learn and everynight he comes home with at least 2 or 3 hours of homework, it feels like we are the ones teaching him not the school.

I like this school. I have two children there and I know they receive a quality education. The principal and assistant principal do fun and exciting things to keep the kids involved, and the teachers/staff are wonderful.

Not a school to send your children to. Bullies roam the hallways out of control.

My grandchild, is in the 4th grade and I have been so impressed with the curriculum and teachers at ELMS. Last month they were one of only 12 schools in the state to be awarded the designation of Alabama Banner School. Couldn't ask for a better recommendation than that. Only the best!

I am a Parent of three Students at East Lawrence Middle and High School. I can honestly say that things have deteriated at an alarming rate over the years. I strongly support education and come from a background of educational workers. There is a severe lack of parent teacher communication. Every time an attempt is made to contact a faculty member at the middle or high school it is met with a negative reaction and strong resistance. One of the most disappointing is the physical education department. Instead of teaching the important values of physical education, they are tought to line dance, or just sit and do nothing.The most important issue is a serious one. Put GOD back in school otherwise things will never improve, Thank you for this opportunity to voice our thoughts.

My child has attended this school since kindergarten. I have only had a problem with one teacher so far. He is now in the 7th grade and every teacher I have come in contact with has been more than helpful. They have no problem with me visiting the school. If I feel there is a problem them have always been more than ready to help me overcome it. My son has learned alot and enjoys this school very much. Keep it up folks.

This school is bad because the teachers tend to jump all over you if you do one tiny thing wrong. Some of the teachers get mad at you on the first day of school if you take your kid in and see the teacher yourself. They act like they don't want you around.

My daughter has gone to this school for 8 years now and each one seems to be getting worse. The teachers tend to lump the kids into one group, all bad. They give the impression they are there for the paycheck only. The principal hides all the time from any discipline problems, which are never resolved. I just hope High School will be a lot better.
