My school is awesome! Although others say it's bad, it really isn't. My teachers challenge the students, and help them prepare for NWEA, or NJASK testing. My teachers love teaching, and provide very helpful activities/work for us. However, a few don't have control over the class. Most of my teachers have control over the students, and their behaviors, while a couple just scold them , but don't do anything. Plus, there are also a bunch of school activities that are super-duper fun! There's the morning announcements, year book club, soccer, track, etc. My school is amazing when it comes to sports; they always manage to be one of the best! However, the school can use some improvement on school band/orchestra. Some of my classmates don't really practice, and don't even care about playing, so the orchestra isn't very good and it makes it tougher for the teacher to teach. In my opinion, they should at least have try-outs to minimize the large group of students.

Lawrence Middle School is the worse school ever! Why? The staff don't care for the students, the staff is WAY TOO STRICT ABOUT EVERYTHING, the staff only care about themselves, the staff don't listen to the students opinion, problems or anything. They only try to substitute it with something that's really not okay. Plus our new principle and vice principle don't care about any of the students. All they do is threaten parents and students so that they will stay in this horrible school. By threats I mean, if your child is sick, REALLY SICK, a family emergency, or anything that will cause a child to miss school, they count it against you. Plus if your child misses too much school, they call the police on you. They don't care what the story is. Your child could be sick, in the hospital, family emergency, anything, they don't care. They still say that that's no excuse for her/him to miss school. For example, I was really sick with REALLY BAD BODY PAINS AND MY GRANDFATHER PAST AWAY, and I missed over 27 days of school, and they counted it against me. They didn't even care. Plus they threatened my Nana. Please for the sake of your child, DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN TO THIS SCHOOL.

Most would agree that Zuckerman has made changes for the better. Moving Milavsky in a huge plus. The teachers need to get control of their classrooms. More differentiation is needed in these huge classes(sometimes 30+) Not sold on the changes in foreign language-no Latin, German, Italian...My student is NOT challenged academically and doesn't always feel safe. There are many positive role models in the school, many extra-curricular activities.

This school has received some very negative press, but unlike some schools who may deserve that negative reputation, Lawrence Middle School is not one of them. Yes, there is a discipline problem with vandalism, bomb threats, and bullying, but LMS has hope and a chance to improve. The academics of Lawrenceville, the advanced classes anyways, are actually excellent; it is up to the student to work and study to get into these classes, which has passionate and dedicated teachers. The extra curricular activities in this school has been neglected. Rather than encouraging students to join the arts like orchestra, band, or chorus, the school has discouraged students in joining. The administration has a created a free period, when these organizations take place, that allows students to do HW. Therefore students, who may excel at instruments or vocals, are turned away for the promise of doing HW in school.

This is a good school now that Mr. Zuckeman came on as principal. My daughter had some trouble with bullies and it was taken care of ASAP! Mr. Kelly is the best music teacher, so overall my daughter had a positive middle school experience.

Lawrence Middle School is a wonderful school. The teachers are really good and I like the administration staff. I've found plenty of ways to tell the administration staff the way I feel about certain things...and they are very open to it. I think that they are really trying their best to make the school a great place for students to learn in a safe environment.

Lawrence Middle School is a great school but sometimes the administration doesn't communicate with the parents. Also they almost never listen to kids opinion or story.
