Laecy Middle School is a school devoted to creating an atmosphere of togetherness, growth, and pride. It is a school that demonstrates the assistance to help students find that "fit" that they so look for. Wonderful staff, terrific adminsistration, and a great PTC makes for a wonderful school. GO LIONS!

I go to this school, and I think It is a wonderful school. The teachers are really nice, and every class was a breeze. They do tend to focus more on sports sometimes but that's ok. I honestly cannot think of any flaws for this school. I'm glad that I go to this school.

i am a student at Lacey Middle School and think there could be a lot of adjustments. Discipline with students is way off and aside from Math, all of the classes are a walk in the park. That could be because the A track students are better than the A track classes.

We love this school! The principal is wonderful. The facility is state of the art. The teachers are caring. We have two children in this school and they are very happy there.

Our children are now in the High School and we cannot help feeling that the school board cares more about sports than education. However the Middle school was top notch in every way. We were very happy with the principal's strict nature with the children. The school tax dollars were used wisely on educational tools and great teachers. It's a shame that the High School can't compare to the Middle School.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
