Lawton Chiles Middle School 1

Students have no time to use restrooms between classes and them are ridiculed for using them in class. My daughter has to carry all her books in a book bag and has to change buildings and floors throughout the day. To top it off the no bully policy should be applied to the teachers too. My daughter is yelled at every time she is out sick, which is not excessive by her teacher. Then she tells her that mother should not take her out of class for every little thing, like her neighbor. When does a teacher have a right to encroach on a parents decision to keep a child home when she has a fever and requires breathing treatments. Not to mention this teacher likes to use the D word when the bell rings. My children have never had any problems with teachers before.

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!

Well first of all i Agree with most of the ratings except for the bad ones. I am a student at Lawton Chiles Middle and i am very pleased with my three years in there. The only Complaint that i have is the the bathrooms were dirty most of the time. The teachers here are very well educated and they know what they are doing. I like most of my frinds would spend more years if we have to in this school. I ca say that this is on of the schools that i will really miss when i move on to high school. Lawton Chiles is definitely an excellent middle school for your child to attend to.

Lawton Chiles has some of the best and hardest-working teachers I have ever seen. My child loves Science class and is going on to High School well-prepared. He tells me that there are alot of class interruptions
