This school is a very good school for learning but i agree that there is alot of reports of bullying. This is an issue that needs to be solved but in my opinion i think another problem is the number of students using drugs. There are alot of kids doing drugs in this department. But bullying is really important too.

I went to this school and the whole district. I am baffled at the reports of bullying and favoritism. Almost all of the teachers I encountered were more than eager to lend an ear when I had complaints or needed help. Unless a student went out of their way to not interact with the faculty the faculty was always there.

I think lewis central is a wonderful school and yes parents are right about favoritism but also sometimes the parents need to be blamed for that. Also about the bullie thing...there are bullies but most of them are older sometimes. It's hard for the principles to keep track of everthing sometimes and there are many kids in iss and things like that our school has gotten stricter. Im sorry for your kids if theyve been bullied but ive gone to lcms for 13 years and i believe we are a good school. Thanks for reading have a nice day!

If the faculty treated the children equally and with fairness to one another this would be a great school. There is too much favoritism with certain children and this can hurt a childs confidence to a great level. I expected more from the teachers and staff.

Lewis Central Middle School overall isnt a very good school for my children. They were bullied frequently and teachers did nothing about it. I complained to the principals time and time again and never received a message back from them. Finally, two weeks later, I did.
