i am a seventh grader who attends lackawanna middle school. it is my first year. i have nothing but the best to say about this school. parents, you may not think that this school is great but its based on the students opinon really beacause there the ones who have to be there 5 days a week. i LOVE this school all the teachers are kind and well educated. in every class with every teacher you feel unique and special and thats the best feeling a student can feel. there extra curricular activities are awesome!! they have everything! and if your child needs homework help they have youth town it is a after school progam they just improved it this year though theres math and ela help and theres swimming robotics and more. i would recomend this school 100%!!!
This school has a very bad academic program. I can say worse but I wont.
I am very disappointed in the way the school is ran.My daughter is always sick and they are not understanding about it at all. I ask for her homework I hardly receive it. Her tutor was to come to the house and they never did.mind you the tutor was arranged by the school.
I think that this school and the high school concentrates more on the athletic department rather than the academic. However the principle leadership is great.
This is a very unique school district where the socioecomic range is as diverse as the ethnic range. There is always work that needs to be done, but that does not mean that there are not students who are succeeding. There are many programs both academic and athletic for the students to participate. There is a wonderful after school program. The main setback , as is across the US, is that parents don't want to be parents. They want to send their children to school and forget about them. Schools today are glorified babysitters. It is time for parents to step up to the plate and take responsibility for their children and their children's actions. Then schools like this will see a dramatic change.
school need to have some kind of dress code...if they do... enforce it. keep the kids with the monitors out...more books... and extra curricular activities..
