Not happy with this school. Very focused on EOG results and teaching to the test. Will address concerns but get no results from discussing it. Average kids fall through the cracks big time. Get lots of attention if you are a high-achieving student. Lots of pressure on the kids. Lecture on bullying, but it goes on all the time here. Slowly weeding out the kids who aren't ones who excell. And carpool? What a nightmare......

Excellent school! Have had children in both the middle and high school. High expectations for students! Will more than prepare them for college! More than 1200 students applied for 2010-2011 school year, just over 200 got in.......that should speak volumes!

We have been very happy with LNCS for our middle school students who have both excelled here. We have found the teachers to have high expectations, but that is what we want for our kids. Great School!

I have 3 children at LNCS. They are all excelling and very happy. The Teachers Staff and Administration really care and teach the children respect, responsibility and how to show great character.

Lake Norman Charter has the potential to be a great school. Unfortunately the leadership at the middle school continues to hold it back from being better than mediocre. If you're a parent who likes to micromanage your child's life, then this is a great school for you. If you seek attention and the limelight, this is a great school for your child. Those of us who just want to provide a better educational experience for our children are often pushed aside and ignored. The PTO is like a cult that causes this atmosphere. For the most part the teachers are good. The office staff, however, is awful.

As a elementary teacher in a neighboring school district, I can't say enough about how supportive the school has been through the difficulties of middle school. It is clear by the writing sample that the previous student submitted, that this child was not adequately prepared for middle school making acedemic progress difficult but not impossible. I hope this student can seek out a teacher for mentoring and find a way to find some positive outlets. LNCS is not perfect...nothing is but the school does have high standards and professional teachers that care. This has helped my children, who have been in this students' shoes, catch up, excel, and become successful high school students.

LNCS has been an outstanding choice for our family. The school prepares the students well by holding all children accountable for their actions and recognizing those who excel. This allows teachers to avoid wasted time in the classrooms dealing with disruptive students, and students learn to be prepared for class and to work in an increasingly competitive world. Unlike most public schools that pour a lot of resources into low performing students with little return, LNCS teachers understand the higher standard, and they make it visible by setting expectations for all to move toward it. This is reinforced by visibly celebrating the achievements of those who meet the higher standards. This approach also helps lower performing students excel much farther and faster than the 'no child left behind' approach, and over time, LNCS has considerably fewer low performing students. And this is the bottom line: This school gets results!

Great teacher/Student ration. Challenging course work. New school buildings going up! Staff is very approachable.

Excellent school! 5 stars do not cover it! I had one child attend 5th - 8th grade, is now a sophomore at Chapel Hill with much thanks to LNCS. She could have not been more prepared for high school! We tried to get my youngest in for 4 years - finally made it off the wait list a few days into the 8th grade last year. After attending 2 other public middle schools I cannot begin to tell you what a difference LNCS has made in our lives! Our daughter is now a freshman at the high school. She is working hard but enjoying school - something I cannot say about the public middle school she attended! I don't have to worry about the foolishness the public schools unfortunately have to deal with! We are thrilled to be a part of LNCS!

Getting your child into LNCS is like being handed a full scholarship to a private school for free! You can't lose. It is challenging, the teachers expect a lot. If your child cannot handle a strict environment designed to build organized, independent thinkers, then it isn't the school for you.

My daughter is completing her 1st year at LNCS and loves it! She has made many good freinds. She loves the electives and feels very independant for 5th grade. The 5th grade teachers have been wonderful!

This is the best school for your child. How do I know? I have gone there. It is the best school. I loved it. The teachers are great, the principal is the best, and overall we were the School Of Excellence. So please consider your child to go there they will have a blast just like I did!
