I am proud to have been a part of lange middle school. It is a great school with great kids and staff. Also lots of people that don't like lange want to tell others but others that do like don't think about giving it community feedback because they don't have any problems so it doesn't come to mind. Just a little psychology lesson.

Lange is a great school. Its a great place to learn and make new friends. Also, I remember you who wrote the last 1 star rating. I hope you are doing great at your current school but i dont know why you said some of the things you did. You were laughing a lot and i dont think people were picking on you. You might of thought so though. On the peeing thing, the kid who did it was sleep walking and had an adrenaline rush. Im sorry that happened but it was in no means on purpose as much as i learned.

While many say that Lange is a school where discipline isn't the best, Lange is my school. I go there and I actually have fun--in school! Why? Everything! Sure students will say classes are boring, but we're in middle school! We're still kids! And we learn a lot. We get our work done. While some students need to be guided with a tougher hand, most of us only have our occasional outbursts. Maybe other schools get better scores, but teachers will help when necessary. I'm here to say you aren't going to find a school like Lange Anytime soon. Lange, is a great, school.

I love Lange. I couldn't want to move anywhere else like Gentry or Smithton. The teachers are superb. Better than all the rest I might add.

I go here the classes teach you some good stuff alot of the classes go way to slow and then the teachers go and cram up a 3 week lesson in 2days. Or it goes by so fast that you dont understand it im in the lange 6th grade team called the Belivers

Lange may be in a great school district, but it not living up to my expectations. While there are some really good teachers, the level of behavior and discipline problems is unacceptable. It interferes with my son's learning, and is disruptive. The amount of foul language, rude and disruptive behavior tolerated was very surprising. Attitudes of staff just illustrate the underlying problems: gym clothes stolen from your locker? You left it unlocked, what did you expect?

Lange is a terrific school in a school district that is truly dedicated to education. The classes are challenging and fun and I can't say enough about how impressed I am with Columbia Public Schools.
