My child entire 6th grade was a waste. She learned absolutely nothing. The principal is distant and seemingly more concern about her image than her students education.
Lovinggood is a great school.the teachers have advanced classes which not many other middle schools have. my daughters science teacher was on maternity leave and the school should have found a permanent replacement instead of a different teacher every week. they have wonder full drama and beta clubs. my daughter loved how they DO NOT wear uniforms. But don't worry there is a dress code regulation. I assure your child will not be wearing daisy dukes in this school, they have a high integrity. Just make sure you check the dress code before buying back to school clothes. Although the overall school was great there are some things that they could improve on, bullying for one the principal has imposed a no tolerance rule, anonymous reports but as I am sure you know this a very difficult time especially if you are a teenage girl. Also there is a bit of a racial issue that the principal either does not know about which I doubt or just dose not care. for instance when my daughter was in the seventh grade a white girl said something about an African American girl and she was 'jumped". In conclusion I would recommend this school as long as you tell your child what to do and what not to do.
I think this school has a bullying problem that if not taken care of, will send it into a downspiral. Not impressed as of yet.
My son is in 6th grade at Lovinggood and it has been a great experience for both him and us as parents. I think the administration is good there, but very strict; maybe not to some people's liking, but it works for us. There are a lot of programs and activities available to the students. It is a safe and competitive academically challenging school for kids to go. They have a very active PTSA. The teachers really care about the students, and most have tutoring time available before or after school which is offered FREE for the students. We love LMS!!
At this school, there is very little interaction between kids not in your class. You must have a hall pass to go anywhere, and the administrators have to know where you are at all times. They are so busy attempting to keep the bad kids in line (which they fail at) and maintaining their image, that the rest of us who follow the rules suffer. Also, if your previous school doesn't have an advanced program, expect a fight getting placed correctly.
This School is horrible teachers do not teach at all! My son failed his first year and he is excelent at aschool I asked him what he learned today and he siad he dont know he usually made all A's in Elementary School!
In our daughter's three years at Lovinggood, she's enjoyed a solid learning experience. The great faculty does a fine job in both prepping students for the next level and keeping teens and tweens focused. And I have to say the music program is outstanding.
Great School!! Glad to have a student there again. My 6th grader is adjusting well.
Great staff & teachers. Many sports & clubs, good music programs. Takes learning seriously. The rules are quite strict, though. You have to get your water bottle "nurse approved" or else you can't have it, and you can't open the bottle before you take it to the nurse. If your phone/electronic device is seen in your pocket or it falls on the floor, you get a referral, whether you were using it or not.
Lovinggood is a great school. The teachers are very nice and they are willing to give you any extra tutoring when needed. The students are also very kind. For the most part Lovinggood is a great school, but like other schools it has problems. One problem is that it has too many rules. For example they only allow you to bring water to school even if you bring your own lunch. At one point they would not even let you bring water to school. Another bad thing about Lovinggood was that the lunches were bad and sometimes they would have hair in it. Last but not least if your phone falls out of your pocket you get an automatic referral. The administrators say they just don't want to see your phone. It does not matter if you are using it or not. I find it extremely unfair. Besides those problems everything else is good.
Lovinggood has been a great middle school for my kids. We benefit from teachers who push for excellence, are open to parent involvement, and implement stringent policies to help establish a good learning environment.
Lovinggood is amazing!! The teachers are strict but fair, and can be very lively when they want. The rules are also fair, even though many people complain. I really love this school and will miss everyone next year!
First of al, let me say that the Band teacher rocks!! He is excellent!! Lovinggood is a great school, but they tend to kick someone out if they don't have enough room, like me. but the teachers have great goals and I get good grades because of them.
The only thing stopping this from getting a 5 is how often they give progress reports, which is like, 4 a quarter, not including the report card.
This is our first year and we love it. The teachers are engaging and Mr. Boland the principal is warm, friendly and attentive to the needs of the students.
As the previous parent stated, Excellence, Honor, and Service are more than just words. The level of involvement from the parents is exceptional.
My grandson has attended Lovinggood since it opened, and we have both been pleased with the comminunication between us and teachers, and committment of administration to maintain order, as well as work with us parents.
I love going to it and my teachers are great no matter what anyone says i think it's GREAT! We always have fun learning and it's not uptight so it's a nice enviorment being surrounded by your friends.
