This school does not deserve a rating. Grades are not calculated correctly in many ways, and credit is not given where credit is due. Administration/teachers are severely lacking.
I am former student. I found that my education at this school prepared me for high school.
There are a lot of new teachers in the 2008-2009 year and I too find the lack of know-how from the teachers. The new principles attempt to enforce rules but do very poorly at succeeding. The teachers are therefore forced to pick up slack.
I think that lake highlands junior high is awesome it has cool teachers cool teachers/coaches and the best football program
I attended this school during the 2006-2007 school year, and I have to say that it was the best school I have ever been to (which is a big deal, since I have been to a new school almost every year before that). The teachers were, with a few exceptions, superb, and they really cared about the students. Very nice environment for a public school. Sports, education (especially Pre-AP) were top notch. Choir was wonderful as well.
Their are some great teachers at this school but many are first year teachers who lack experience. Once they gain their experience they are off to another job Turnover is rampant... I wonder why. Many students are major discipline problems and these are the very parents who are not involved. Unfortunately teachers are responsible for teaching basic manners and socail norms with leaves little time for teaching.
