The school environment at Lang is deplorable. The teachers here do not nourish or cultivate a learning atmosphere and the kids respond to this by being disruptive and unmotivated. The teachers are more interested in who "won the fight" than setting positive examples for the kids. Their test score ranking barely meet state minimum requirements. If you have the means, stay away from this school. Take your child to a school where the learning environment and structure i dedicated to help your child reach their full potential. The teachers and staff at Lang are only interested in doing the basic minimum to keep their jobs and to stay eligible for state funding. This review is not specific to any one particular teacher but to the staff of educators as a whole.
This was the worse three years of my life as a parent at this school. This school does not have programs for kids who have a hard time focusing and learning. This school will suspend your child without taking any action to help them with the issues. I am a working mom and try all I can to show support to the school and my child. My mother is even the PTA President trying to get things to happen. If your child in not a calm, easy listening, smart child then the school does not have time for them. And they will also tell you that everything starts at home, which is true, but if you do not have the support of the teachers to back up what you are trying to teach them at home..were does this leaves you. The teacher go to school learn how to teach...so TEACH!
This will be my daughter's 3rd year going to this school. I love the leadership of the Principal and all that he has done for the kids. The 6th grade teachers are great, the 7th grade teacher were okay, but could have been better. I think this school is doing great to say it has only been here for 2 years. The test scores have came up. Parent involvement is great. 'We are the best of the best and we accept nothing less...' That is a great motto from the school!
H. W. Lang Middle School is by far the best school ever. From the Administration, down to the custodians, exemplifies one who truly care about the entire well being of students. Lang is very structured for a middle school campus whic enables the teachers to create critical thinkers who can compete in the real world. Kudos!
i have to admit that the school is strict but thats not really a problem some kids really like it there the cafe room is very big i also like the way they have the classes set up 4 classes a day it lowers the stress level it gives the students an extra day to do home work
It's a very good school for children to be in just needs to stop a little strictness
This is my son's first year. I love the dedication and hard work Mr. Peters put forth every day. The staff make you feel like your at home. Teachers call you when your children are doing good or bad. You know how it is when you get a phone call from the school. You always expect the bad but not here. The coaches are dedicated to academics first. They even tutor to make sure the kids are rising. I greatly appreciate this school.
Great School! I am always greeted by someone on the Lang Staff. I have never had a problem with parent/teacher communications. I am very happy with the school.
Lang is a good school but sometimes are to strict u can wear jackets with hoods on them and ucant wear coats with color shoes got to be black and white thats not good students should be able to wear what there parents bought for them its making parents money go to waste and they dont even use all school supplies
The school needs to care more about the children and their future. As a volunteer it is sad to see some kids don't know there simple math of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Here's an example of how great this school is: The principal actually knows the majority of the students first names. He is dedicated to knowing them all!!!
This school is too strict.You can't even wear hats when it's cold.The principal only cares about the image of the school!!
