I feel like all if the teachers here have prepared me accordingly to enter high school this year and truly cared about myself and other students. One of the best things about this school is the art in my opinion. The art teacher there is absolutely amazing and the activities we do in class are a ton of fun. Having spent 3 years at Erwin I have improved my art skills, become fluent in another language, and used their IB program to become more knowledgeable, principled, and open minded about the world around us. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to students and parents every where.

There are a lot of positives at Erwin, but as my child leaves for high school next year I do have some reservations about some aspects of the education provided at LEMS. There seems to be a greater focus on quantity of work versus high expectations regarding the level of work. It seems like half of the school is made up of straight A students. The positives at this school are the arts programs, the GT coordinator who understands what GT is, and dedicated staff. The drawbacks are teachers who will pass kids through even accelerated classes with high marks when the work they are doing is not advanced, bullying, and the typical middle school problems with drugs and promiscuity.

We have been at three different middle schools (Kinard, Preston, and Erwin) since we have moved three times in northern Colorado (we remodel homes and sell them). I have noticed that other schools score higher than Erwin on CSAP, but those schools just drill test prep. Erwin focuses on creativity and relevant problem solving. You can tell by the projects that kids do and the level of thinking they are required to communicate about the concepts they are learning. I don't mind if they skipped out on 70 worksheets on semi-colons, so they can score well on CSAP...I would rather have my children at Erwin where they are HAPPY and CHALLENGED in the areas they need to have as an adult not just a test prep school!

This school is amazing! I have never been in a school with such dedicated staff, and high expectations for every student. With the new principal, anything is possible at Erwin! The IB program is in full swing, and if parents would just do their part, and demanding that their own children be responsible for themselves and their schoolwork, this school could focus on even more amazing things!

I would not advise sending your children to this school. There is a very uncaring attitude on behalf of several of the teachers. Once a behavior issue begins they go out of their way to make it worse.

Erwin is an ok school, but if you get one bad grade, everybody treats you way different.

I think that this is a pretty good school but there are a few teachers that could be a little bit nicer! THANKS!

My daughter had a wonderful experience at Erwin Middle School. Their IB programme is underway and the staff and new principal are working very hard to create a wonderful middle school experience. I think it is the best middle school in Loveland/Thompson School District.

I think Erwin is a great school. The teachers take time to explain what they are teaching if you don't understand it, and you can talk to them about your grades if they are low. If they are low teachers take time to help you out and may or may not give you extra credit to help them improve depending on what time of the year it is. Erwin is a great school and i look forward to attending it for three strate years and graduating from it. I really enjoy all the activities the yallow kids to do and the only thing they can improve on is monitering the halways because i have seen kids sneek there way out of class.

I hate this school. The teachers choose favorites and do not really like or pay attention to the kids that do need help. I am happy to be leaving next year.

Lucille Erwin has meet and exceeded my expectations! I was pleased with all of my sons teachers. The GT teacher expects a lot and in turn the children produce. Her feedback and comments on their work is very uplifting and positive even while she is making corrections and teaching. The music teacher is tops! She received excellents with her solo and ensamble groups! She puts 200% into her students and truly cares about them. His health teacher was excellent in her approach to teaching about the bodies changes through puberty. His social studies teacher made her class fun and exciting! The band teachers encourage their students through positive feedback. He loved his math class! Science had interesting labs. The 6th grade teachers all work together, creating a great learning environment! We loved his team of teachers!

I believe parents with struggling children would not be pleased with this school because of the lower expetations. But parents with overacheiving students will be happier. teachers show way more respect for [overachievers]. Plus, [they] have more opportunities.

Very disappointed with Erwin. So, disappointed I will be homeschooling both my kids, 6th and 7th graders next year. This school is unable, unwilling, untrained, to follow his state-mandated IEP. I have no other choice but to find another route to giving him the best possible education. This is just one issue I have with this school, the list could go on!

my daughter is in the seventh grade and is an amazing student on the honor roll. But recently her grades have dramatical slipped and the teachers have no idea on how to fix it. Plus, the athletics can be run very stupidly. I think just because it is a new school, it is not the best and needs to greatly improve.

Erwin is a great school for kids that excel (like my 7th grade GT child) but lacks concern toward the child that struggles (like my 8th grade failing child). They have great GT, and advanced programs like Junior National Honors Society, and advanced classes, but very little help (short time between meetings after school) for kids that are struggling.
