One of the best schools I've been to, I would not be where I am today without my teachers helping me

My oldest daughter attended Pound and had some learning difficulties. The teachers and counselors met with me on a regular basis to go over evaluation results and progress monitoring. She reacted well to the additional assistance. She felt welcome in all of her classes. When walking through the school with her teachers knew her by name and she really enjoyed going to school. There were a lot of additional opportunities after school and some outstanding music opportunities.

As a teacher, I am always amazed at students' comments, especially students who have transferred in from other local schools; positive comments that speak of teachers that care about them, of being welcomed at Pound after having been bullied at their other schools. Pound Middle School is the best kept secret on town.

If your child is in special education and is even "remotely" capable of learning general education curriculum or being in a general education setting....this school is not the school for you. Plan on a fight to the finish....from adequate communication to appropriate and well thought out continual administrative strife at every turn. Very disappointed. Feel like this school has done nothing but place a glass ceiling in between my child and her potential. We have been extremely satisfied with the LPS Special Education department but this school is a real let down. It remains inconsistent with the standards and high expectations of a quality educational experience that ALL children deserve.

My son attended Pound, and I was disappointed in the lack of communication between the teachers and parents. Even though the teachers have email address's - they acted as if it was a 'bother' to email a parent about homework not being turned in. So, after more and more homework assisgnments were missed - up comes parent teachers conferences and then BAM! You're kid is struggling, and you feel like a terrible parent. I even created a sign off sheet for homework, but some teachers refused to use it.

Outstanding! The administration and teaching staff are responsive and are doing a great job of educating my kids. Most teachers have high expectations, but I want my children to be challenged.

Pound is a nice school. It is clean. It is well staffed and organized. The teachers are really good. They communicate fairly well. There is a counselor for each grade, and the counselors follow a class from 6th-8th grade. (Does that make sense?) It is in a good neighborhood also.

The quality of academics is wonderful and the teachers are very knowledeable. The lacking is in discipline and safety issues at this school.

My son entered 6th grade at Pound. There is very little discipline. I wrote to the Principal and he basically said he chose his battles and that is the way it is.
