I've had 2 children attend Louis Armstrong Middle School and they are both doing extremely well now because of the preparation that they received at Louis Armstrong.
It is diverse, has many varied programs in the arts, the science teachers are wonderful and dedicated and the staff is very responsive to parent needs.
Lams offers my son an enhanced learning environment that has brought out the best in him. Because this school he has discovered his love for Jazz
LAMS is an amazing middle school! A special thanks to Mr. Fahey. My son goes to I.S 227 and im very pleased with the overall outcome of my son's education. A special thanks to Mr.Dippolo.
I love L.A.M.S. because it is so unique and diverse. It has so much to offer children and anyone else who is part of the LAMS community.
The Parent coordinator of this school is truly awesome. She keeps you abreast of everything. She accessible and returns phone calls promptly. The teachers are great and offer extra help during free periods. The school has great trips to really open up a child's mind. My daughter commutes but loves the school so much she doesn't mind boarding a bus at 6:45am. She truly loves the atmosphere and teachers at LAMS!!
I love IS 227 because it gives my daughter to explore herself in other areas beside academic. IS 227 staffs, teachers are very informative and caring. This school has the most wonderful parent coordinator, Mrs.Debra Cataldo. She is the best asset to this wonderful school.
This is my daughter's 2nd year in LAMS and she is averaging an A in all of her classes. The teachers are very involved and caring. They offer help on free periods. Overall the best school.
this school is great, there are lots of electives like band, orchestra, art, chorus, etc. the teachers are great too. and also we are very earth friendly, we started a program were we recycle our lunch trays to reduce waste. this is a great school and i strongly recommend it for your child's sake because im sure they'll enjoy it. :)
My son is an 8th grader about to graduate and we both share the same opinion. It's been a great learning experience. My daughter who now is in college still have beautiful memories about LAMS
My two daughters attended and benefited from their all inclusive program. The teachers are interested and involved with their students.
I love this middle school! Go LAMS!! I am now an 8th grader of 2009-2010 on the 3rd floor and I love Ms. Delvalle and Ms. Greenspan. For all my life I was quiet and bashfull, but now this school turned me around and I'm not afarid to tell people my opinion (I wanna be a politician). We have AP Algebra and Bio for the 8th graders. The staff and teachers are very nice and supportive. We also have 5th graders. We have different electives of different talents and hobbies: art, band, ceramics, orchestra, chorus, and more! I also want to wish the very, very best for Ms. Barashy's family, and I always liked Ms. Barashy, she was quiet funny.So...I TOTALLY RECCOMEND THIS SCHOOL!
It's simple...best teachers, best administrative staff, most caring adults...and the children know it!
my child graduated class of 09. she loved this school. i think it was a great school. teachers very helpful and open even when you may have problems with them. a new principal is on board. the last one although efficent wasn't available. i thought homework was kind of lax. overall this is a freat school and very safe which is important.
lams is awsome.let me list some of the activites it provides:-french/spanish -technology -band -orcrostra -a.v -art -and sooo much more i can't even count. im an 8th grader, & i've had so many experiences in lams that i douht i woud have done if i went to another school. like i was interviewed on ny1, put in numerous newspapers, had a chance to particeipate in a summmer art program that i was introduced to through the scool, was in plays & dances, also made my own videos there, met many great, fun teachers, staff & friends.sure there will be the ocasinul fight, but its never big or bad, & plus, it adds exciment!sure, there are cliques, but you're going to be with people who are you're friends.sometimes there will be groups with people that you dont like, but you dont have to be w/ them.& im in 8th grade learning 9th.grade.material...they.pushed.me,&.this.school.helped.me.in.so.many.ways
I'm Going to be a 8th grader this year. It's a real good school. I love my friends & I love how its so multi-cultural. Everyone comes from a different place and we all have a good time. I've been learning alot of things. And its a nice clean school. Love it!
Well :( im a student at I.s 227 and am a 8th grader these years have been a bit tough because there were to many fights and when i needed help from the teachers they would turn there backs on me well this school is ot all bad it has its good stuff like the activities but i find it that the only problem is that most of the teachers are kinda mean at times and they might not now that they are hurting students feelings but they are
this is my second year at this school 6th grade and i love it and there are so many opputunites here there is swim team , A.V., art. choir, play and so much more and thats why i love this school and how much trips you can go to .
These are the best years of my life.Every moment and day i have spent at this school has showed me something new.There is a lot of involvement from teachers and parents as well .Lams is a great school with involved teacher and parents. At first i was scared of everything but in the past 2 years i have become a better friend and person, all the teachers have showed me many things.Even though their are a few flaw though their are a few flaws like the building since it was built in 1979! but its a great journey that i have taken with my parents ,friends and teachers.I will be so sad when i graduate next year
