Alice B. Landrum Middle School 3

Landrum is a good school, but it is getting overcrowded. WIth so many students, it can feel impersonal. They need to do a much better job of acclimating new students and teaching students to care about more than their popularity and grades, but rather on building a stronger school community full of compassionate kids. This is critical for this age group in a place where many kids are entitled. The school also needs more clubs and activities. Kids were closed out of clubs and classes this year. This meant they couldn't meet peers. School is not just about testing, but it is about developing friendships and empathy. Landrum needs to work on this.

Landrum has gotten better over the past two years with replacing the horrible principal they had previously, but still has a long way to go. There are a couple of teachers who have been teaching for 25+ years who are way past retirement. This is reflected in both their attitude and their teaching style. School Officials are always right regardless of circumstances or situation. If your child can go to another middle school, I would highly suggest it, don't subject them to this.

Landrum Middle School is an AMAZING community school supported by caring staff and supportive parents. Elective options support a continuum of services in: language (overview in 6th grade, Spanish in 7th and 8th, and Spanish for high school credit and Chinese for high school credit in 8th grade), computer education (including CCC for high school credit in 8th), STEM courses (gaming, coding, TV production), physical education, Engaged Citizenship and Leadership, Art, Music, Drama, and Debate... The academic program is rigorous, preparing students for the full-implementation of the Common Core State Standards in 2014! The teachers and parents are "ALL IN" with commitment to the students and improving existing programs and technological infrastructure. Postive Behavior Support mechanisms ensure a proactive approach to student behavior, guiding students to make positive choices. Middle School is a beautiful period of growth and independence. LMS supports this development through building postive relationships and providing opportunities to get involved. Staff and students stand "United" for one another bc Landrum C.A.R.E.S! (Culture of Accepting and Respecting Every Student)!

Good, great, terrific, the words fall short of the experience we have had at Landrum...Caring teachers, plus Connected Principal, equal Quality School experience for kids.

My eighth grader has had exemplary teachers at Landrum. We could not ask for higher standards in all areas of her education.

I am a teacher at the high school that receives Landrum students. The kids come prepared for high school academically and socially. I will soon have a son in 6 th grade and they have made a great effort to make sure that he and the other 6 th graders feel welcome.

Landrum is a good school. My daughter is entering her second year at this school. Middle school is a tough transition for children and I feel that Landrum staff and administration does its best to minimize the stress of this transition. Each school goes through the pains of change however I feel each member of this school is intent on making the school a parent teacher supported place of education for each student at every learning level. The support is there. My daughter struggled with math. She was placed in a before school support class which helped her improve tremendously. I agree with the previous review. As a responsible parent, it is your duty to try and resolve your issues one on one with the teacher and administration. Posting negative comments hurts our children, their confidence and pride in their school as well as our community as a whole.

Landrum is an excellent middle school with caring staff and a comprehensive plan for the transition of middle schoolers into high school. The staff cares deeply about the students well being and character is stressed at every level. Many new electives are being offered next year, to ensure there is an interest for all students. I have had children at Landrum going on 8 years now and also substitute teach there. I also serve on Landrum's PTO. Those who have posted negatively should please try to resolve their issues with teachers or administrators before placing negative comments online. This is counter- productive and hurts our entire community. Trisha Heffner

Principal is horrible and will not communicate with parents other than to tell you how wrong you are. My child is in the "gifted" program, but that too has gone by the wayside. The new common core standards that are being shoved down to the children are terrible and actually lowering the learning standards. Landrum is not concerned with anything except FCAT scores. Private school is the way to go, and the Principal needs to be fired.
