my child has attended this school for the last 2 yrs. unfortunately, he has encountered a serious bullying problem. he is very quiet & keeps to himself, & for that he a target. i have brought this to the attention of the staff on many, many occasious.. i would strongly advise any parent against registering your child in this prison,(middle school). i am very involved in my child's curriculum, that is why i am very concerned.. school should be a pleasant experience..worst school ever...unfortunately i am forced to give this school 1 star because you can not leave it blank.. they deserve nothing..
This school does teach very well. There may be a few improvements.Though.
I happen to like this school. A few changes though: I think it would be fair if the students actually had a say in what to wear. But other than that the school is doing a great job. Go LWCMS!
I have a child in this school and it has been a not so good experience. There seems to be a real disrespect for parents from the staff. As there are so few parents involved I think that this is counteproductive. Also, to echo the review from another parent, the school needs for gang prevention programs, as this is an obvious problem. Our children need a nurturing place to learn and be prepared for a reposible, prosperous life. They do not need peer pressure to join gangs to survive. Staff needs to communicate batter with parents and among each other, as often it seems they do not. I would have liked to have given the school a better rating, but then I would have liked my child to have had a better education as well. More programs, more communication, less attitude towards parents. God Bless America.
I find that lwms needs more communication between staff and teachers and counselors. one hand does not know what the other hand is doing.
Lake Woth Middle School is a great school. Out of all the schools ive been to this was my favorite,that school tought me alot more than any school i have been to. The teachers may not always understand some of your prombles you may have in your subjects but they try in every way to help you. Dont even get me started on the principle he is a great principle. He lets us have fun but still be prepared and ready for anything.With this in mind i want every parent out there to now that maybe lake worth middle may not be in the right area but they do know how to teach there students and still have fun. So Lake Worth Middle School keep up the great work.
I've got two kids at the school, with one I've had bad experiences and the other an okay experience. I think the school needs to revamp the discipline strategy and concentrate on the real trouble makers of the school. I think there is a lack of respect for parents from the entire staff. I have always been there when asked and been there when I wasn't asked. I also think the school would benefit from outreach programs, and guest speakers on gangs since the problem in Lake Worth is rampant, and also tolerance lessons. I also strongly believe that the kids need to be taught as much as they can, not taught just enough to pass the FCAT. Parents, it's out job to teach our kids respect of themselves and respect of others. If I could put my kids in a different school I would in a heartbeat.
it is a good school! lake worth middle is a very good school! my kids love that school and very good that they enjoy going there so in my book its a school!
My son attended LWMS for the sixth grade and he brought his grades up to honor roll, but the quality of the work is very poor. He is not getting prepared for the next level. The teachers rarely give homework. Children are not expected to be a high achiever, they are not allowed to bring home their textbooks to reinforce what they are learining in class. I am trying to get him in another middle school to finish and hopefully make up a wasted year and prepare him for a good high school and college. You have to exert too much effort just to get the basics from them. LWMS is terrible. Choose another school.
i am fairly happy with the school. No big problems. My kids enjoy themselves.
I believe that this is a really great school,very well mainained and the teachers are wonderful. My daughter raised her grades to straight a's in this school so I believe its a wonderful school!
The safety and discipline at this school could be better, as well as the Principal leadership, and teacher quality.
