Whatever this school once was, it isn't anymore. The administration and staff are only accommodating to certain categories of kids and families, too. Send your kids to private and stay away from Landrum!.
My child has completely changed for the better srince coming to this school and I'd like to thank the Seventh grade teachers for taking the time they have with my child:) She is truly turning into an amazing young lady and y'all have taken part in shaping her educational side. Thanks
...to the 6th grade teachers: you are terrible. I've never regretted anything more than to allow my child to know you. Everyone (teachers and staff) of you that I've encountered don't care at all how you unduly influence children and their parents.
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.
