This school is great! The parent involvement is excellent. They keep you informed with your child's academic progress and the fact the their students are able to take high school courses before hand is excellent! Awesome principal that stays in the hallways on a daily
This school is not as bad as people say it is.When i came on here and read the reviews i was really scared to come here as an in coming 6th grader.But after a couple of months i really enjoyed my time there.I have to agree that the kids are very wild and LIVE during the day.But we do get rewarded when we accomplish new goals as a grade.There was a whole bunch of different assemblies for different occasions,which was the good part.The IB program really pushes you to an advantage.Some teachers gave me a hard time but i just had to continue with the year.All in all i really like Lauderdale Lakes middle and i will be coming back for the 2013-2014 school year.
ms. Rachel Lucas should not be teaching. All she has to do is monitor online students progress. She gave my A/B student a D because she hadn't taken her End Of Course EOC exam before interims. The state law says they cant take the EOC until April 29-May 10. She completed the class the first part of April with an A which was early. ms Lucas gave her a D because she hadn't completed a test the state says can't be given until after interims. Florida Vewrtual School says they are supposed to be entering the grade they got in the online class! I'm sooo mad I could SCREAM!
Ever since new administration, "Griffin Administration" the school has been running every well. My child which is now in High School scored every well on the FCAT due wonders of the teacher he scored ALL 4's and one 5. The administration knows how to communicate and gets the parents involved. WONDERFUL SCHOOL!
I attended Lauderdale Lakes Middle school for all three years. I was also in the magnet program. I met my best friend in the 6th grade at Lauderdale Lakes. And I am in my second year at Howard University and we are still best friends. Personally, I didnt socialize much. So, I didnt make the most of the school. However, I had great teachers. I was able to earn high school credits while in middle school, which paved the way for early admission my senior year of high school. The programs at Lauderdale Lakes are excellent! You just have to know what you are there for.
The teachers are excellent! They care about their students academically and outside the class. They are very supportive. The IB program is challenging. Some of the classes are online and allow you to go faster than a traditional class.
Everyone is friendly and helpful. Events are held monthly to encourage parent school relationships. Excellent environment to learn.
This school has made some great changes. It is by far ahead of other schools in technology. It has some kids with behavior issue like every school. Fortunately, their are incentives and support for kids to do well.
Dont send your kids here its a bad school theirs not very much detail here but pease dont send your kids here. Its best for you and your child for them to not go their!!
this school is bad the reason im still going is because i live near the some of the teachers are direspectful and unfair and the students are even worse if you have a chil DONT SEND THEM HERE WARNING !!!!!
I am a student currently attending Lauderdale Lakes and truthfully I do not think it is a good school. Most of the children are not serious about their education and this puts the focused children in a bad environment. Compared to other schools, it is very violent. It is encouraged by the students. Punishments are not harsh when necessary, but are when unecessary Although temperary solutions have been made for these problems, no progress has shown. The are not The IB program does push you to your potential, but I believe there are too many projects. I would rather have an assignement that is related to the curriculum, rather than a projects that is just eye candy for visitors. I think the 7th grade magnet teachers are great teachers, except I wish they would focus more on the curriculum at hand. During sixth grade I did more independent studying for mathematics
I think the kids are bad but the teachers are nice ,and have a lot of education
i went to this school and for the 6 months i went here i filed 4 police reports on fellow student and was beaten up weekly do not enroll your children in this school.
I am a 6th grader attending Lauderdale Lakes and I am in the IB program. I love the school and the teachers. It will be hard saying goodbye to everyone when I leave for high school.
I am in the 8th grade attending Lakes since 6th grade. It's not that we are out of control students we're just happy to have a place to socialize with friends. Besides who wants to go to a boring old school that's strict. Also, I'm in magnet I agree that some teachers do always seem annoyed but wouldn't you be too if you had to come everyday to deal with over a hundred kids for 8 hours a day because even if I loved my job I wouldn't be too happy about that. Personally, I feel that the way Lakes is shows that it has character. You can hear that a school is an A school and has a good environment, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's safe or the education is good.
I like this school, but the kids are on some serious grown fols buisiness
My daughter enrolled in 2007 and so far, i am impresse with her achievements although there is room for improvements
Lauderdale lakes middle school is a great school though we may not be the best or the most prestigious we sure are not out of control the only reason teach always seem to be rude is the fact students do not want to follow directions and want the teachers to do what they want is the only reason students say teachers are rude so in conclusion the ib is impresive because i know for a fact that william dandy middle school's ib program the highest level of math the have is algebra 1 and the highest math we have at LLMS is geometry so in conclusion LLMS a good school.
i likethe school and i think it a great school and that why i go to this school
I disagree students arnt out of contorl their just happy to be able to socialize after having to work all day.LLMS is a great school it may not be the best but who knows what the best school is its just your opionion . At least their giving your us a education.I am currently attending LLMS 7th grade magnet and I am happy with were i am.And if you think this is a bad school then think again about what its like in the real world.Common sense.
