Very bad school,teachers are horriabe,principal and teachers are very difficult to communicate with,my kid went there for his 6th grade and he hated it then i tried to communicate with the teachers and principal no response from them like they do'nt care,please stay away if you care about your kids future.
The school is an A school the band is great earning a superior in band assesments. also the athletic department is outstanding
My son has attended Lyons Creek for 3 years and any parent who rates this school a 5 must have a smart kid. Now for the parents who have kids who tend to struggle you are in for a nightmare at this school. It doesn't matter if you attempt to stay on top of things the teachers DO NOT GIVE A CRAP especially once they make up their minds that your kid seems lazy or not interested. Don't let the A rating fool you. It means absolutely NOTHING.The teaching faculty is a joke, they are there to collect a paycheck and take weeks to update grades. By the time they do your kid has failed. And they always blame your child rather than themselves for failing a student when they make no attempt to contact parents about what is happening in their class.
Lyons Creek is an outstanding middle school. It is a magnet school, but in a great neighboorhood, instead of a lower socioeconomic area. The principal was a finalist for Principal of the year in the state. My family moved into the area so my son could attend a wonderful trifecta of schools: Tradewinds, Lyons Creek, and Monarch.
My son is in 7th grade there, and while the school itself is nice, the faculty and staff seem apathetic at best......Very little structure in his advanced classes, and it takes forever to get a graded paper or project returned....pretty middlin'
Lyons Creek is a great school. The principal really cares about the students. It is rare to find a staff that works so well together. Middle school is a change for most kids, Lyons makes it much easier for the kids. Lyons Creek ROCKS!
LCMS is a great school, with teachers who really seem to care about their students. My 8th grader has had the best year with technology and writing and band.
Teachers could care less and are very insistant on letting us know that too. I never have been able to actually interact with my son's teachers and all they do all the time the students are in class is email their friends and talk on the phone. I would not recommend this school if you are hoping that your child recieves and education.
I love this school because it is a safe and fun environment to learn in.Last year I had the best team of teachers Gordon,Amati,Mitchum,Morgan,and Gardner.They were willing to help with any of my problems.The faculty and staff are informed 24/7 about everyones problem.We miss Mr.Curry and Dr.Tumor.
My previously honor roll student(who used to love school)ended up hating school after his first year at Lyon's Creek Middle...terrible communication between teachers, ESE, principal and guidance. No such thing as zero tolerance at this school and my son will not be returning!
Last year was my son's first year in middle school and I was extremely worried. With the help of some wonderful and caring teachers - Allbright, Johnson, Kozell, Castro & DeSoritz - we survived. This group of teachers are the best. There are not enough words to express my gratitude to having them as my son's teachers.
I just wanted to tell you how great Ms. Cole and Mrs. Matarasso are as teachers. They really helped me when I needed words of encouragement and someone to rely on. And keep up the good work!!!! love, Kala Hennessey
Protect your children from this school! The faculty and staff were either uninformed or did not care the majority of time I requested information both before and during my son s enrollment. My child came as an outstanding straight 'A' student only to hate school after one year.A strict dress code is needed as students dress very promiscuously. The entire school appears to care only about the FCAT and their school grade.
My son is extremely intelligent and has been in the gifted program since pre-school. He has always made straight 'A's' until he entered Lyons Creek Middle School. It is obvious that neither the teachers nor the administrative/leadership/counseling staff care at all about the success and/or problems of my son. They should feel like losers since my son isn't doing well since entering their school.
I have a son that graduated from Lyons Creek last year and a daughter that is now in the eighth grade. I have had nothing but enjoyable experiences in dealing with the staff. The teachers are attentive and regularly give feedback on my children's progress or lack thereof. Mr. Satty is wonderful and should be applauded for his professionalism, ethics and devotion.
Lyons Creek is an excellent school, and the majority of the teachers are very interested and involved in the well-being of the kids. Our son has really blossomed here, both academically and socially. Like many other schools, however, they need to be able to offer much more in the way of cultural learning opportunities, e.g. art, music, etc. In addition, like every other school in this state, they have been forced into the position of putting so much focus on the FCAT tests that it has become detrimental to the learning process in non-FCAT subjects.
I have one child in the school. Haven't had any ploblems the teachers have been helpful. The band is great.
Lyons Creek Middle School is an 'A' school in my books. Both my daughters in this school and they love it. The teachers give the students all the necessary attention to reach their potential. They have a wonderful collection of staff. Both my dghtrs have done very well thanks to the classes they offer. The school has a great after school program and activities. One of my daughters is in the gifted classes and they have done wonders for her! I would tell any one to send their child to Lyons Creek Middle if they have the opportunity.
This school is one of the most fantastic schools I have ever had the pleasure of sending my child to. The teachers are wonderful. Specially mr. satty. He is kind and friendly and caring.
All three of my kids have gone to this school. While I love the school, the only issue I have always had is class size. The school is overcrowded, and class sizes are way too high for quality teaching.
