The educational standards at this school -- the teachers' commitment so high -- that I can almost take them for granted and instead be grateful for the rich offerings of electives, such as the string orchestra in which my daughter performs. The ability to aspire to high standards without 'teaching to the test' is a rare one these days, and is something for which I am profoundly grateful.
Louis Armstrong is one of the most diverse schools in our District with students representing many cultures. I am proud of all the achievements the school and students have accomplished but most of all with my two sons who have learned so much and everyday continue to be challenged. The staff and teachers at LAMS are outstanding and must be commended. The Principal, Mr. Fahey has done an amazing job and has been involved from day one in his first year at LAMS. A special thanks to Mr. Fahey, Ms. Filakouris, Ms. Del Valle, Ms. Conway, Ms. Jimenez, Mr. Grambo, Mr. Blum, Ms. Kahn for being outstanding role models as teachers and leaders at LAMS. Last but not least to Ms. Cataldo (Parent Coordinator) who continues to do an amazing job and Ms. Williams (words just cannot express). Thank you for caring and going above and beyond! I am truly grateful for your dedication!
LAMS is an amazing middle school! The music program is superb; more so because it is still valued and kept running even in these tough economic times. The school is welcoming and always clean. My daughter has to commute 45 minutes to get there, but she loves it! Sending her to LAMS has been our best experience within the NYC DoE.
Louis Armstrong is a very good middle school! The staff is amazing! The teachers are very prepared. Mr. Smith was my daughter's first teacher in LAMS, what a great experience! I'm so thankful for the way he cares about each student. This year she is loving her teachers. They are helping her a lot in every matter. Even when she needs to commute every day about 1 hour to get there, she is so excited to be there. We love LAMS, we are so fortunate to have this special middle school in Queens! Go LAMS!!!
I can not begin to tell you how happy I am that my daughter got into this school. She loves going to school every day. The teachers are nothing short of amazing. The school Band is great and is funded by the Louis Armstrong Music foundation. Their Robotics class is wonderful. My daughter goes on and on about her teachers, esp the science teacher, Mr. Grambo. Great school.
LAMS has beeen a wonderful,enriching experience for my son,who is graduating next month.A big thank you to Ms. Gold,Dr,Wu,Mr.Drum and all the rest of the staff that he has encountered since 5th grade.
My daughter has become very independent and responsible since attending IS227. This has been a very good experience for her.
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!
