I am currently attending Luella middle . My peers and I agree that the school is too technology based . We are not used to learning online , and it's causing us to become behind in other subjects , trying to just focus on one (math) . Math is my weak subject , and I feel sometimes that I may fail the math part of the CRCT . Since I have transferred to Luella I haven't found such confidence In my math . On the other hand , the teachers don't have much control over their class .
this is a GREAT school ! I would definitely recommend it to other parents. teachers are very kind and suppotive. school is always clean and staff is always nice and pleasant.
Luella is a wonderful school. My daughters attended Luella. One thing I miss and one complaint: since Ms. Browning left, the library is not as warm and friendly. She was very helpful to the students. My daughter complains she doesn't visit the library as much as she use to (this is the younger daughter- the other is at LHS). With the school being smaller, the library should be more flexible. I even heard that the teachers complain about it too.
The school is very responsive to any parent needs. Whenever we call or email the principal or AP, we always get courteous service and they listen and help solve whatever problems come up.
The teachers at LUella are great and LMS has so mny technology recources I love It!
the school as far as education is great..but i feel that they do not have strict rules and procedures as far as addressing theft of property is concerned among the students..
I just graduated from Luella Middle. I learned so much in my 3 years there. They don't just teach you what you need to know for the year; they also teach you things for the following year. My advanced classes were challenging, but fun. They actually rewarded us for our accomplishments which made us want to accomplish even more. The school has great school spirit. The pep rallies were the bomb. Our sports teams won practically all out games. The dances and after school activities were fun. All I know was that I had a blast. I would go back any day.
We are new to public school. My son is in the 8th grade and is doing very well. I have been very pleased with his Teachers and he has adjusted well.
I object very strongly to the comments made by the parent complaining about the principle of this school. I have had countless dealings with him as I have worked in the school for the last three years. He is determined to make this school a better place and he is devoted to the kids that fill it's walls daily. My child has had a wonderful (for the most part) education there and now moves on to high school well prepared for the next four year. No school is without its share of problems but I believe in the work that the administration is doing to make it a better place and if the parents could only get on board with what thye are trying to acheive, it would happen that much faster.
This school has given me multible reasons to complain about the way they handle their school. They should allow the students more freedom and actually try to understand how they feel. If they would even consider thinking about that, they would have much more happier students and much happier parents.
The principal of Luella is arrogant, and disrespectful. although going to Harvard (which I respect) his attitude is uncompliable and the college may have gotten to his head. Most of the teachers here are great and the activites acceptable, but except for this one problem and the violence(fights) could be fixed then this school could be fantastic.
This is a cool school. Teachers are cool. There is just alot of things goin on. New students are welcome.
I personally believe this principal (Mr. A. Schmuhl) is the best one in the county. Recent progress shows it! Hats off to him and the entire adminsitration for making this middle school the best the county has to offer. The new '07/'08 modified block program and newly established 'houses' within the school dictate what all Henry county middle schools need to do! The new program allows for more time in classes that matter, and less time for locker talk! Our children are repeaping the benefits.
Luella is a very unique place of learning. I think the teachers and administration is sincere about helping students achieve academically. In addition the learning continues in the evening with many clubs and sports for a variety of student interest.
I think the Luella schools are great. They are definitely better than the average school here in the south Atlanta area.
I have had a few problems with the teachers and administration being uncororotive and poor disicpline.
Varying opinions of the school system can be heard, but for the most part, my experience with the Luella schools ( including the high school ) have been unsatisfactory. The teachers that attempt to make an effort seem few and far between and as for leadership, Gangi has a better handle on adminstration than his fellow adminstrator at Luella High School, Eckerle. One thing is for sure, it is not for everyone, and you may find your children excel while others may not do so well. Wouldn't recommend attendance of this school if it could be avoided.
Luella Middle School is a great school with wonderful, caring teachers who go the extra yard for children. I am very very pleased. Mr. Gangi is a good leader. The teams of teachers worked with me and my child and I was very satisfied. Luella Middle School has a great library program as well. My favorite part of Luella Middle School is that it is ALWAYS having something for the school to do - Cross Trainers, Y-Club, 4-H, Beta, and GAMA Club.
