LCMS was an excellent school, and it can be again. It takes great parents, great teachers, and students who want to learn and come from families who teach respect and manners. Reading past comments, I saw truths in all of them, however many of them were written in gross generalizations. Not every teacher is bad. Not all administrators are bad. Not all students are bullies. In writing a review, angry parents or students need to tailor their comments, observations and feedback to their own experiences and not use a broad brush strokes to paint the whole school as terrible. Yes, this school has gone downhill in the past 3 years, but with the new expected principal, it will snap right back to being excellent again. It does take a village. I'm excited for it's future.
Lyons creek middle school is a terrible school to go to. Staff do not know how to discipline children and fights happen daily. Staff just scream at students to discipline them which is innefective against them because of their nature. Children curse almost in every sentence and I feel insecure at this school. As an advanced student teachers do not help me learn and instead review everything. The cameras at this school do not work and this school does not teach Latin and Japanese. Most children are thieves and cause problems to others. Do not enroll a child in this school unless you want an insecure and dangerous learning environment.
LCMS is the worst school ever. Kids are so mean and raciest its not even funny. I understand you are going to get drama here or there through middle school-high school but this is ridiculous I latterly come home crying at least 2+ more times a week. there's bully's, rude teachers etc. tip in life: DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD TO LCMS
LCMS is straight I mean I'm doing fine I'm taking algebra an hopefully going to a magnet school if my grades keep up but some kids are treated unfair some teachers are down right rude
I Attend this school . & its a wonderful school , but i feel like I'm treated different because I'm an African American. 60% of my classmates/ schoolmates are nice, 40% Are racist . But overall Its a (Good) school.
I completely agree with the previous comment about this school being just terrible. I honestly felt as if I had written that review. The "anti Bullying Policy" truely is a joke at this school. I understand no matter what middle school you're in there will be bullies but this school does nothing to make your child feel safe. My child was continusaly picked on last year by the same kid he was clever though didn't do it around teachers or anyone else was paying attention. Mine and my childs complaints, and bullying report to the school staff went close to ignored they actually sent me a letter in the mail saying they couldn't find sufficient enough evidence to confirm our bullying complaints and closed the investigation. Eventually that trouble maker went on to bother someone else unfortunatley for that poor unsuspecting child. Then another bully started in on my child and finally my kid had had enough this bully was following my child around and pulling on his clothes and book bag and my son turned around and hit back... My child got suspended over it! For finally sticking up for himself? This school needs some reconstructing starting with the school administration.
This school is just terrible. It is crowded to the point of breaking. I can't speak of all the teachers that "teach" there, but as for the ones my child and his classmates have had, they don't care. One gets the feeling they don't want to be there. The administration is just as lacking as the teachers are- if not more. Your concerns and issues fall on deaf ears. Their anti-bullying policy that is a joke. The children that are bullied have no real recourse and seemed to incur types of bullying from the security guards and administrators themselves. Parents of the bullied child are made to feel as they are just complaining and that they are also at fault. LCMS will not let parents of the bullied child view the tapes that the school administration use for coming to a verdict or conclusion regarding fault. They also don't want to hear any issues that may reflect poorly upon them and show signs of retaliation toward the child when then are criticized. LCMS is a bad school. I feel awful knowing my child and good kids like her are subject to such a negative experience within their formative years.
My daughter attends LCMS, overall she seems to be doing well and is fine with her teachers and peers... I however wish thay had a magnet program and wish mre homework was given... But other that that I am satisfied...she seems to enjoy her school.
i am a grandma living in new york my grandson will be attending your school he was in sawgrass last year he is in special ed 7th grade this year.. i cant seem to find information about the classes.. also i would like to keep up with his school being he lives so far away now i can feel like i know a little about his day . i dont know anything about this school...
worst school in Broward County. Some teachers are very rude to students, Teachers do not contact parents before giving severe punishment to students. I sometimes feel like tmy daughter is treated differntly because she is African American. Just a very difficult adminstration to deal with
I am a volunterer at this school, I also have two kids who have completed this school with great and excellent grades and another begins in the fall 2012. I have to say after reading some of these reviews that I don't see what some others apparently see. I think this school is great, the teachers that my kids have had have been very hands on in communicating any issues to me. My kids were elgible to attend local magnet schools but we chose to keep them at LCMS. It does take a "village" but that begins at home! If you are not happy, get involved, see what you can do to make a difference!
I dont know what has happened to LCMS but is definitly turned into a mediocre school. Our oldest daughter went here and we loved the school then, but in the last 2 years it has become a joke. No HW given and poor communication between teachers and parents. The school is over crowded and I 100% agree with the review below, uear came and went an my 6th grader who is in AP and GEM has grown little in education. Very dissapointed. We were sad to see the old principal go.
Kids have 14 days extra off , no homework during the week or weekend, my concern has been my 8th grader son which is in PA classes . Never HW and has only done 2 poster projects through out the year, I strongly saw a year just go by and no growth.

My conclusion is that the school's cameras don't work. They also don't want to hear any issues that may reflect poorly upon them. LCMS is a bad school. I feel awful knowing my child and good kids like her are subject to such a negative experience within their formative years. To be fair to LCMS I must state that I have not met all the teachers and am solely basing this review on my own and friends/parents of children going to LCMS.
I just finished 8th grade and overall I liked the school. There are many clubs and sports to join. The teachers are very nice and they care. I would suggest trying to get into advanced classes in this school, because the people are so much nicer and focused on school work. I compared my advanced classes to my regular ones, and I loved the advanced classes. The regular ones are filled with bullies and just stuck up kids.
What about bullys in this school? Does anybody know of any incident? I plan to enroll my grandaugters for next year. Thanks!
i myself love this school, the first day at this school i felt safe and secure. The teachers are very nice and you can learn really easy. Kids are very unite and respectful. I highly recommend this school and i guaranty that your kid is going to have fun and learn. In addition the school is really clean and beautiful.
I go to LCMS and I have enjoyed My whole year I am in the advanced team in team 601 in 6th grade and I am very happy with all my teachers.
I have started my 6th grade year at LCMS. I love my teachers, Team 601 is awesome, they have great programs, outstanding electives. The band isamazing all very quick learners. There is a live morning show, before/after care, and wwwwaaaayyyy more. ignore all of the dolty reviews! Its outstanding
My daughters first year at the school, so far I see compassion from the teachers and the principal is awesome, he took the time to remember my daughters name and follow up with a question I had regarding school work, he got back to me personally. The band instructor is wonderful, only a few weeks in class and already she can play her instrument.
