As people moving to the area, my husband and I visited this school unannounced to see what a typical school day would be like. Our surprise visit was welcomed by the office staff and one of the guidance counselors took time to give us a tour of the school and answered all of our questions openly and directly. We really appreciated all of the candid answers and were very impressed. This looks like a Great School for our children!

They have a very caring teaching staff and they look out for your child.

There is very little communication among the teachers and the parents.The children who are car riders have no one to supervise them, the teachers out there don't do anything about the kids behavior. I am surprised no one has been hurt, I have had several to run out in front of my car as I take start to drive off, when I called the office they said that the principal was out there daily, I have yet to see him. Teachers promise something but do not follow it through.

Great Music program. Not a lot of communication between teachers and parents, at least compared to elementary school.

I am very disappointed with the way this school handles parent/teacher communication. We have asked for advice from one seventh grade teacher about our son's failing grade. So far this school year, we have yet to see a science book brought home. Our son tells us that they do their work in class. This is just one example of the 'neglect' we've encountered this year. I have wrote notes to the teacher to give me a call so we can set up time to talk now the first report cards have came out and my son has two d one f and one b and one a in pe and I have not heard from a teacher or the school leaders

I have always heard what a wonderful school LMS is. Wow, am I disappointed. The administration is lacking at best. The one thing that does make this a wonderful school are the teachers and parents, they almost make up for the lacking administration.

I have found that most of the teachers in the sixth grade are very nurturing and try to establish good routines and practices my child needed as he moved from grade to grade. I noticed that the seventh and eighth grade teachers were not all equal in their capability nor desire to educate. The art, music, and career exploration classes at this school are great with very enthusiastic teachers. Overall, the majority of the teachers at LMS are dedicated, hard-working, and highly qualified. The administration, on the other hand, is weak to say the least. Poor communication skills, bad attitudes, and lack of interest are just a few of the principal and asst. principal's faults. It makes me admire the teachers and staff even more that they are able to shine as bright as they do inspite of such ineffective leadership. Several National Board Certified and award-winnning teachers on staff!

My child loves this school! I never hear of any problems that other schools have such as drugs, fighting, ext. My child wouldn't want to go to any other school. The academic programs are great and everyone keeps up well in their team. (I was a sub. once) They have extracurricular activities and everyone participates in them one way or another. Parent involvement is high in the PTO, and almost every child's parent has signed up.

This school is run by very poor administation. The principal and assistant principal have very bad communicational skills. You can not have an intellegent conversation with either of them. You can not feel comfortable going to Dr. Fred Mock either because he is best 'buds' with the principal. What is a parent to do? I would strongly recomend sending your child to a different school.

So far this school year, we have yet to see a science book brought home. Our son tells us that they do their work in class. This is just one example of the 'NEGLECT' we've incountered this year. Also, his bus,'384', goes past our house twice in the morning and afternoon, due to us living on deadend street. They refuse to stop at our driveway to pick him up, or let him off. Less than a minute each time. Instead, he has to walk 100 yards in dark, freezing, fog, rain, etc. This road is barely wide enough for 2 vehicles, and traffic doesn't observe 25 mph limit. It is a dangerous road for 12 yr.old to contend with! Obviously, his safety, 'NEGLECTED'!

I would just like to say that this is a very nice school however the majority of this school is rich and cocassion. So if you would like your child to be open to more diversity I would not recommend this school. If you feel your child would be able to handle the lack of minority though, this school has great teachers and after a while your children will feel right at home.
