This school is not for a child who loves to learn. I feel bad for the handful of kids who are missing out on a good education. This school is filled with kids who love bad attention. They're disrespectful to their teachers and kids around them. The teachers have to go over and over and I mean over the same stuff in class because 90% of the kids are interested in being cool and to them being cool means being disrespectful and not paying attention to the teacher and so the handful of good kids have to deal with these issues and they aren't learning a thing. The principal says he changed the hallway issues but that's not 100% true. There's still issues in the hallways. BUT most importantly he needs to changed the classroom issues!!! My child has learned nothing new so far at this school. If your child wants to learn I'd advise you to not go here.
ILMS is a great school and it is due in large part to the great administration. Not only has Mr. Bruno set the tone of excellence in the school, he knows where every child is academically and personally sets goals with them so they are encouraged to be their best as well. This is a community school where good things are happening because parents, students, faculty, and staff are all working together.
Last year my daughter was in the 5th grade at Litton. It was a great year. I don't know about this year yet, we will see once they have been in a few weeks.
Litton last year was over the top. The teachers for 5th grade was excellent and the prinicipal Mr. Bruno is exceptional. I don't know what 6th grade will be like but we will see.
I went here for 5th grade and this this school pitiful. I have been made fun of by students and teachers(ms.Jennings). Ms.Russell doesn't even teach. Well, just say if you want your kid to be able to write the pledge forwards and backwards send you kid here because they will make you write it tell your hand hurts.
I have been teaching at Litton since 2008. I'll admit, in 2008, LMS was not a good place to be. However, in 2009, Mr. Bruno became the assistant Principal and turned everything around. He has instated a discipline plan that uses demerits (so small misbehaviors are dealt with instantly). It gives constant feedback for bad behaviors and gives positive consequences for good behaviors (students earn intramurals by not getting demerits.) As a result of bad behaviors being dealt with, learning is the main focus at LMS. Check out our scores! We keep improving by leaps and bounds.
My daughter is a 5th grader at Litton. First of all I want to start off saying how great the school and the there staff are. The teachers and Mr Bruno go out of their way to teach your children. My son had went there and his 5th grade was horrible. They had different administration and basically they didnt care. But as my sons 6th grade year Mr. Bruno came in as the vice principal. It was getting better already. By the time my son went into the 7th grade Mr. Bruno had been promoted to head principal. The changes started to happen. Now since my daughter is there, Mr Bruno has hired new teachers and the non deserving teachers are gone so Litton is at its high peak again. Litton used to be great a long time ago and now it is back. Great Job Mr Bruno and Staff.
The principal at Litton is awesome. He does not take anything off from the students. He is fair and always has a open door policy to students and parents. Since he has been head principal, you can go visit the school during class change and you would not even know this is what was happening. The teachers are great in the 8th grade as well as last year for the 7th. Mr. Bruno has been head principal since last school year.
I miss the old Litton Middle for my oldest, I miss some of Metro's great teachers that were at Litton, I miss extra-curricular activities like Chorus. The atmosphere changed this year and so I changed school for my oldest to East Literature Magnet School. I hope there will be a change for the better...soon.
this is a wonderful school my two older childern went there and i want my younger child to attend there also
