My daughter is in the dance academy and the teaching Academy and she loves it. There Are plenty of sports to try out for, lots of after school activities. the teachers seem to be very interested in how she does, and guidance counselors here are excellent. We are very happy here and we highly recommend it.
This is by far the worst school my daughter has ever attended. She is a gifted student, this however doesn't mean that she picks up on all subjects easily. When she approached her Algebra teacher for help he responded by telling her that if she is truly gifted she should understand the curriculum. My daughter was bullied on a regular basis and even removed from gifted classes because she had an issue with another student. The teachers don't want to be there, the administrators don't want to be there and the students don't want to be there. Security is non existent and there is absolutely nothing to stop people from entering the campus. Pick up and drop off is a joke with no enforced routine and kids running about like animals. There were two exceptional and caring teachers that deserve to be mentioned they were Ms. Sutera & Ms. Utech. By the time we transferred her to a much better school her self esteem was almost non existent. We decided to drive her 25 miles each way to Loggers Run in Boca rather then have her stay her final year in what can be described as Hell. It has now been about 1 1/2 years and I am finally beginning to see the happy child I once had.
I just want to say how happy I am that Lanta Middle picked my son for their pre teacher academy. My son loves school and always does his home work. Thank you for making my son love school again. Sincerley Ms. Sedler
The school is ridiculous. They should close it The teachers do not care The principles do not take care of things in a timely manor even when they are told a fight is going to happen they do not stop it . Then they punish one child more severely than the other . Both students should be treated equal. The kids that go there have a poor attitude towards learning because no one seems to care. My child became a frequent absent child due to the way all employees and staff acted.She had never missed a day of school until she attended Lantana middle. close it or fired them all and start over
This school should be shut down. It is sad that my children even had to experience 3 years of humility by going there. From teachers that are too burnt out to teach and get easily aggravated to staff from all 3 grades that really need to see if working with children is what they really want to do. My children got sent out of the classroom for elementary things, which leads me to believe the teachers just don't care to teach. It was a lot better 3 years ago when the other principal was there. I can't wait for my children to graduate.
