Charles W. Lewis is a great school. All the teachers are great and the principals are also wonderful. It is just a wonderful school in general. They have all kinds of after school activities. Sports and more. I couldn't ask for a better school. I think that any new student will feel very welcomed. The teachers along with the students will greet you very warmly.
As a student i think this is the best school ever, now that I moved i really miss that school. The teacher are really nice and kind.
My experiences in this school made middle school the worst three years of my life!The discipline of the students is horrendous!A lot of kids were teased unmercifully.and when they told about it they were turned away or sent to the child study team!The curriculum along with the teachers are soo outdated.
I think this school is wonderful - my daughter was a new student this year from Catholic school and I was very nervous about the transition. However, she has far exceeded my expectations with great report cards, involvement in school activities and has fantastic teachers. I am so glad she decided to switch schools.
As a teacher at Lewis School, I am proud to say that the staff is second to none, always willing to help the students whenever possible. We have a lot of great programs and extra-curricular activities offered so all students have an opportunity to find a club that interests them. I am a sole believer that you get as much out of the school that you put into it and we have many students who excel academically and balance their time among several clubs throughout the year - making it a great school! It is not an unsafe by any means. CW Lewis is and always will be a school dedicated to offering a positive and nurturing environment for the students.
This has to be the worst school my child has ever had to attend. She has had some good teachers- and some horrible teachers. The office isn't any better. I would not recommend sending your child to this school. I regret moving to this area- and regret having to place my child in this school.
i am a student at c.w.l i love the school! it has so many activites to do that are so much fun! the teachers are very nice and helping. if you move to gloucester township, send your childer(children) here!
I'm a former student and I had a good experience at this school. I found most of the teachers to be caring, and Mrs. Shockley (Georgianna) was the best guidance counselor!
The vice principal only acts when the situation gets to a crisis level, and results are mediocre at best. If you're considering a move to Gloucester Township and have a child that would end up at Lewis, take my advice: RUN! Spend your tax dollars where your children will get an education.
I have had several children in this school over a recent 5-year period. The quality of the teachers is above average. Student discipline had been excellent at this school until a few years ago, an excellent vice-principal left, and replaced with one that is too lenient. I do not like the principal who likes to micromanage the entire school. The music program here is excellent, especially the band teacher, who is one of the finest in South Jersey.
My son is in the 6th grade at Lewis school and he's been very successful academically, and I attribute that, in part, to good teachers. There is a lot of support...I think the principal and vice principals do a good job too. There are big, big problems socially at this school. My son has been strangled by one student - who eventually transferred out. Lots of bullying at Lewis - despite a stringent effort to call the kids' attention to it. Good after-school programs and a very focused staff of counselors.
My daughter is in the 7th grade this year and unfortunately my views of the school aren't the greatest in all areas. The principal and vice principals do a great job. The teachers, on the other hand, leave some things to be desired. My daughter has come home with work marked incorrect, but her answers are correct (on more than just one or two occasions). She has a language teacher that told the class that ebonics is a language and it is not slang. Maybe I'm just more concerned with the way my children present themselves when speaking. I understand kids will use slang, but I don't understand why a language teacher would not correct it, much less, encourage it. I've also attended parent/teacher conferences where I was told that my daughter is doing very well in the class yet her report card showed a very low grade. The extracurricular activities are great at Lewis. It seems that no matter what your interests are, there's something for you to get involved in. I appreciate the fact that whenever I visit the school, I'm approched as soon as I enter the doors and directed to the main office. I feel that my daughter is safe when she's there. Overall, Lewis is a great middle school. I think the problem lies with a few select teachers.
My son is in 8th grade now and really enjoys Lewis. I feel the teachers and principals are very open and easy to get a hold of with any concerns you may have. I've seen a big difference in my son since attending Lewis. He started off a bit shy and is now involved in many activities.
