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.
what happened to the Godleness, in our school, you see childrn bringing guns and knifes to school and, kids are not even able to bring a bible to school. and now the school will not even let the us say a prayer before lunch or anything... It is an okay, school!! !
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 children have been going to this school for 9 yrs now the school is getting so out of hand ,each yr only gets worse the teachers and principal our not doing there job as far as the students go something has to change at this school or there is going to be major problems in the future parents have put in complaints time and time again with school board but no one is listening parents we need to stand together on this issue for our childrens sake.....A concerend parent.
