I am a very hard person to impress but LAMS was hands down the best experience as a mother a parent could hope for. Outstanding artistic sensitive teachers who are very dedicated and love to teach. I was always welcome and my child was treated with respect and the very high expectation level pushed my child to learn more. My child was ready for the HS admissions process both mentally and academically. You are privileged if you get accepted to this exceptional school. The last day of school will be a sad day for me. It's been a joy.
My son goes to this school. It's one of the best school in the town. Now I regret why I didn't I sent my daughter here. Lots of activities and my son love this school. I will surely recommend this school to anyone now.
is the best school ever. best middle school in new york. great education and leadership. i love the band

This school is excellent, it prepares the students for High School academically and in the arts. I am so happy my child is attending I.S. 227.
My daughter is in I.s.227 and she is very good at all subjects so I want to thank this school for helping kids get better and I want to tell them to keep going and keep working on making kids better thank you
Louis Armstrong is an excellent school. My son graduated in June, 2013. The staff is very supportive, organized, and friendly. His peers interesting and encouraging. The music teacher is amazing.The chorus introduced him to a wide genre of music, different languages and fostered his talents. On a whole his life has been truly enriched by his experiences at LAMS!
I am a ninth grader attending High School of Applied Communication. I transerred to I.S 227 in 6th grade. Honestly, it's such a great school. I highley recommend this school for any 5th grader. Also if you do not get accepted the first time and can also try in 7th grade. I know people that joined I.S 227 in eigth grade. Do not give up! This school is amazin, I learned alot and it provides many extracuricular activeites.
It has some of the best teachers and staff quite a few have doctor degrees just overall it is the perfect learning environment
one of the finest schools in New York and I am glad I had the honer of going to it
This is the best school ever! The teachers are soo suportive and when you do bad they know you need help and give you the nessesary push to help you keep going. I just realized how much im truly going to miss this school when i leave it...
this school is amazing. the teachers are supportive. the students are all talented (in one way or another). and you will just have the best time at this school with all their extracurricular activities. especially when you are on the third floor.
I am a graduate of I.S.227 and my 4 yrs at this school were very good. I hope that the new kids attending will have the same experiences that I had and I hope that they will learn from the wonderful teachers at L.A.M.S. Graduate of 2010
LAMS is a great school. My son has just completed 6th grade and being here made the transition from elementary to middle school a fun experience. He made many friends and his teachers really care about his success. There is no comparison between LAMS and his zoned school. I am very happy and consider us very fortunate to have him attending this school.
It's a great school, with a program that encourage learning hands-on, my kid loves it , and he had learn a lot. The teachers are great, very involved in their pupils academics and personal development.Security is also great, my kid feels very safe in the school, and that's peace of mind that reflects onto the academic results.
LAMS is a great learning environment that helps students to thrive thanks to a combination of a caring and insightful teaching staff combined with a wide range of programs and extracurricular activities that encourage kids to learn outside of the classroom. LAMS truly gives their students a chance to lead and succeed.
My son is quite happy at the school but there are times when the teachers can raise the bar and have a higher expectation of the students. Academically it could be more challenging, especially the science program which seems to repeat itself. It has a different feel to a local community school because it is a big school but the administration seems to handle the number of students quite well. It is a very diverse school and most of the teachers are responsive to parents' and students' requirements. The school initiates different after school programs which a bonus and allows students to explore other non academic programs.
