The son has been bullied everyday this school year with nothing done by the school! The teachers don't help! Lessons are taught once and if a student doesnt understand, too bad! Blazer Court is a JOKE!! Go eat yummy snacks and nothing changes but no action taken is a waste of time! This school id basically a joke but spoken of so well by the staff.....job security can make anybody tell stories!!

This is year is my 3rd year at Lewis and Clark. The first two years were very stressful, because of teachers who obviously didn't like their job... Most of them were just as ready to get out of school as us students. But the good ones were excited about being able to meet students and teach them new things. 8th grade is the best grade so far. The teachers recognize every individual as family and are happy and optimistic teachers. You also get a lot more freedom in 8th grade. It's getting better though...

It was okay. I expected a lot better...I was bullied there a lot and the teachers or principals did nothing about it even when we had to sign a no bullying policy. :(

The school is great if you are a parent who has nothing but time to devote to the PTA and all the school activities, but if you are a single parent with children in the school it is another story. They do not work to teach your child, they just push them through! My daughter has 5 flunking grades right now, and not a single teacher has contacted me to get her help, they claim that she is doing great!
