Unorganized, and just flat out terrible. The teachers dehumanize their students. The guidence counselor does not do the best at her job. She is always busy outside of her office and barely has anytime to talk to students about their problems.

Very disappointed in this school. My daughter has been going there for 2 years and both years it has been one thing after another. This year her math teacher was bullying her and another teacher broker her musical instrument (then she completely denied it). The culture among the kids are terrible. There doesn't seem to be much devotion among the teachers and there is little communication between parents and the teacher (of course I'm not referring to all the teachers)

I don't know what school the first lady is talking about but that sure isn't my school, this is one of the best schools around and I know that to be true. People are always friendly and you couldn't ask for a better environment for kids to be educated in. :)

I am a 7th grader at Lake Weir Middle school and I love it the teachers are very nice and really explain what they are teaching you. LWMS also has alot of things to do before or after school like volleyball, track, Drillteam, Flag, FFA, and Majoretts. LWMS also has clubs that we go to on half days for 5th and 6th block. The princeable at Lake Weir Middle school is making alot of great changes, last year was his first year has princable at lake weir middle. I would not go to any other middle school.

My daughter just started LWMS and I am very happy with her teachers, the administration and her guidance counselor. The school grounds are very clean and the landscaping is pretty. There is a nice water garden just outside the library. When I have visited the school recently, I have been met in the hallways with pleasant greetings from teachers and support staff. I am looking forward to many successful and happy years at LWMS!

This is my daughters first year at lake weir and I think it is one of the worse schools around. I have two older daughters who didnt attend this school and I am so greatful for that. The teachers just do not seem to care. I had to practically pull teeth to get a conference. You would think that teachers who have been at this school as long as they have would be awesome, but it is just the opposite. I really believe they are burnt out.

LWMS is a ok school. They need more sports programs to get the kid's into so they stay out of trouble after school. The new principal at the school is doing ok but more changes need to be done.

I am thinking of relocating by parents. My son attends a 9 rating school in tampa is in gifted classes. This would councern me for a change for educational purposes. There needs to be PARENTs that have involvment in school. That is why Coleman in Tampa is a 9 star school. My son may be to advanced for this school. May be some help would do by a concerned parent. Activities, Band, Art, Launguage, Drama, Computers this is just to name a few at Coleman...Please respond if would like to talk Robbie

I wouldn't recommend Lake Weir Middle. Not enough Parent/Teacher communication. No after school extracurricular activities. No encouragement to do better, or reward for doing well. Most Teachers caliber and ability left a lot to be desired. LWMS also has In School Suspension, rather than better programs such as After school suspension or Saturday School. Would not recommend this school, I feel it needs to make big changes and has for years.

I think Lake Weir Middle School is a great school. We have a high percentage of students who come from a very rural area in southeastern Marion County. Our mobility rate is 39% which makes it very hard to help our students be ready for the FCAT. All the teachers are dedicated to their students and many have worked at the school for more than 15 years. We do the very best for our kids with afterschool programs but it is hard since we are in a rural area. Come on over. I think you will like it. I have worked there as a teacher for more than 20 years and drive 18.5 miles each way to do so. I wouldn't think of leaving before I retire.
