There is NO homework, except for a little math. No textbooks in other subjects. No textbooks?

The administration is completely unresponsive to parent concerns, and doesn't inform parents of substantial proposed changes in the curriculum. They told parents a month before school began that the middle school would combine grades 7 and 8. My son now sits in pandemonium among 75 other students, with sub-groups constantly coming and going. The idea of combining 7th and 8th graders is idiotic. My son tells me that they're not learning ANYTHING. If they hadn't sprung this on the parents at such a late date I think many parents would have found alternative schools for their kids. As it was, it was too late to find any alternative other than the public schools or home schooling. I will shout from the rooftops, for all to hear, that LMMS is a disaster and a waste of money. What's worse, it's wasting valuable years of my son's education. If I pull him out and send him to another school for 8th grade he's going to be way behind because HE'S NOT LEARNING ANYTHING AT LMMS.

My children received an excellent education in a caring Christian environment. Both my daughters met their eventual spouses at Lancaster Mennonite, good guys who shared their values. Both girls still have close contacts with their high school friends, showing that, at LMS, friendships are lasting because they are based on common values. This is a progressive Mennonite school -- NOT your "horse and buggy" Mennonites -- so it has a global perspective and values and respects people from all backgrounds who want a great education in a great environment.

I have been a student at Lancaster Campus for over 3 years now and before that I was at Kraybill Campus. I have thoroughly enjoyed the educational experience here. The strong academics and caring, educated, teachers have helped me prepare for my future at a 4 year university. I have been able to challenge myself academically all the while growing in my spiritual walk with Christ.

It is exciting to see the positive learning that happens everyday at Lancaster Mennonite School. It is a special place that partners with families and trains children and youth in the ways of God. Outstanding teachers and wonderful students in a caring school community.

As a current parent at LMS, I have to say that there is no other school -- anywhere -- where I would rather have my son enrolled! This school is a wonderful place of opportunity: academic excellence, strong co-curriculars; caring and dedicated teachers; community and freindships. My son has excellent role models among faculty and among his peers and friends. This school is a true community of learners. I love Lancaster Mennonite School and would highly recommend it!!

Many negatives to out weigh the positives. Beautiful campus, new textbooks and kind teachers, however; academic, spiritual and safety concerns caused us to remove our honor roll student who is now catching up as a result of this school. Teachers try too hard to be friends and not mentors and leaders which causes the students to run the classroom. Discipline and natural consequences for vandalizing or bullying is not there. Homework is super light or non-existent and good students are leaving as a result of a low academic/behavior admission standards from incoming students. We found there's no standard of behavior that's enforced. Lack of parent accountability/involvement could also be a contributing factor. Regardless ,this experience saddened us. This must be a recent change because this school was highly reccomended from former graduates. This was a great school - but it has changed.

I've had 4 children go through LMS and they each had a wonderful experience. It wasn't always easy because kids will be kids, so sometimes relationship building was hard, but it would be like that any where. The difference at LMS is that teachers, parents, alumni, and administration are keeping the school and the students in their prayers. Also, the teachers and administration are guided by God in how they teach and discipline. The students are learning academics from a christian perspective. Even though temptation and sin is everywhere, at LMS to live a moral life is the norm, not the exception.

Wonderful school with a great learning enviroment. Teachers are caring and want to see students excel. You are not just a number at LMS but a person that matters. The students can feel that. Our family loved being a part of LMS 'community' !

My daughter was miserable at this school. I placed her at LMS in hopes of avoiding the roughness of the city junior highs. What we experienced here was equal to what goes on in the local school district! Very disappointed.

Students are encouraged to think globally and individually. The teachers are very dedicated to helping students succeed both scholastically and socially. Kids who graduate from LMHS are well prepared for college, trade school or whatever further education they choose.
