I have to say this is a great school. My 12 year daughter loves the school, the teachers are amazing. The school doesn't have so many students, so the kids have more personal help when they need it. The Cambridge program is fantastic because it motivates students to keep learning.
A mi hijo le gusta mucho LCMS, yo estoy muy orgullosa que el este en este programa, los maestros son muy buenos, y quisiera animar a todos los padres y tutores de nuestros muchachos para que nuestra escuela siga subiendo su calificacion porque se la merece. Dios bendiga a todo el personal educativo y al administrativo. :)
This large school has only has 620 students. The classrooms are incredibly spacious, huge in fact. The Principal and vice principal are just incredible. They have their finger on the pulse of everything going on and know each student. The Cambridge program they now have is equipped with the best teachers and highest quality materials. In their iPrep math, each student has a laptop. They no longer bus students there, so unless you are zoned for the school or were accepted into the magnet program and have your own transportation, you cannot go there. My child is happy each day to go to school. I hope they get more enrollment. Public schools are closing. Doral Middle was closed. People are choosing charter schools over public schools and it's a shame. If more caring parents with good kids would send their kids to public schools an spend their money supporting the school instead of giving it to private institutions we could save our public school system. It's one of the most essential institutions we have in this country. I see even public school principals that are making a lot of money choosing to send their own kids to private school. I think it's shameful.
We transferred to this school from Jackson Heights Middle. We couldn't be happier! We love this school. All the teachers and staff create such a welcoming environment for the children to come and learn in. Ms. Lawshe is top notch! Thanks for everything!
It is an excellent school. They inspire kids to learn something new and how to become a great person in the future and thats why when you hear people speak of lawton chiles like we always say its were eagles soar
