If I were able to give Live Oak zero stars I would. There is so much that I can say in regards to this school. I really don't understand how this school is still up and running. Not only are they lacking in academics but the school in general is the pits! There is not only bullying from student to student, there is bullying from teachers to students. I was HIGHLY disappointed with the sports banquet last night. It went EXACTLY as we knew it would. It isn't fair that these coaches as well as these teachers can get away with showing favoritism. They pick and choose who is their favorite and only look out for them. If they get offended then they hold a grudge against the student. How is that fair? All the cheerleaders except for 2 received an award? Really...they could have made up an award to give to those athletes and why bring all the athletes up in front of everyone to pick and choose your favorites to give awards to. LIVE OAK COACHES AND TEACHERS you all need to grow up. You are suppose to be role models for these children but you act just as immature as a lot of the children do. I wouldn't refer Live Oak to anyone who cares about the well being of their child!

After supporting the LOR for three years, it saddens me that as a mother. I received such little respect... When it comes to complex issues, the school does not have the expertise. The staff professional counselors need more experience with children that are apart of TDFPS. Further, they need to understand the different between the court removal of children and parents requesting protective services (Foster Care). LIVE OAK RIDGE FAILED, AND CONTINUES TO FAIL.....Do the really care? Or, are they just using our children as guinea pigs (Department Juvenile Justice), remember these studies destroy and punishes our good children. Please take a stand..... AFCMSVO/NAPSP

This school is a set up for children to feel bad about themselves or having others think they can get away with bad behavior. Problem with that is, the real world is waiting for them out there and some of these children are in for a rude awakening. Other children are going to be scarred for life and middle school at Live Oak Ridge is going to be a nightmare for memories. In regards to the review posted yesterday-what good is it to have a safety plan if it's not activated. I'll tell you- it's not good and it serves no purpose then. The school needs to do all they can to protect your children, not aid in endangering them or sitting on their hands waiting for the worst to happen.

Well guns seem to be a problem twice in less than 3 months. Fights after school almost daily and a gang-like mentality resides well here, sadly. Destruction of property and bullies, runs rampant. Not pleased with this school at all or its Principal. Will be extremely glad when my child has graduated THIS out of control school.

As a former student of this school, I believe that the standards of the teachers and staff members are set to a reasonable level for the students. The Christian-like qualities show throught all the staff so they can set an example for the child you are rasing.

I am currently attending as a 8th grader and I have been attending at Live Oak since 6th grade. I got to say this school is one of the best in the KISD. Overall to me this school is like family. If you want to be a great athlete you must see Coach Cotton, Coach Chevere, Coach D, & Coach Cypher. Although this school is a little crowded it's still a good community.

My son has now attended this school in 6th and now he in 7th grade. I am overall happy with this school. My son is in TAG classes and he is being challenged. I do think that they do not have enough teachers and the classed are overcrowded. Last year was much better with this problem. But overall my son is doing good. He is an A student and a good Athlete. The sports are good Coach Cotton is a good coach he really cares about his athletes and keeps them out of trouble. I would recommed this school to other parents but you must be an involved parent. This always helps. I believe there are troubles at every school but its the choices the students make to stay in or out of touble.

The Staff, Counselors and the spirit of the school best suits me. I appreciate the friendliness and cooperation the staff provides. I am always able to talk to teachers, who seem to have time to hear me out on any concerns or issues I have.

I am a student a Live Oak Ridge Middle School and I absolutely love being a LOBO. The teachers there are so nice and supportive. They don't yell at you unless your not doing what your supposes to be doing. They do there best to make the day fun they teach us in fun ways in a way that makes you actually want to get up and listen and not go to sleep and the best teachers of all time are Miss. Crisp, Mrs. Brownell, Mrs/Coach Jackson, Mrs. Benn, and Mrs. Z Anderson and also the principle there is amazing. She doesn't like to yell, but when she talks us students stop and listen. So Live Oak is really a great school and GO MIGHTY LOBOS!

this school is wonderful. the academic and extra curiculum** classes are great. I am going into the 8th grade. I have been here since 6th. It breaks my heart when I hear or see someone spreading bad things about this school. not everything you hear is true. although there are some students that like to cause trouble. They only do it becasue they like the attention. Live Oak shouldnt be labled as a bad school because most of the students do what they need to do and try their best at everything they do. so before you tell your student they cant attend this school you should know the facts.I know where ever I go I will also always be a lobo! ~Student

Live Oak Ridge is an awesome place to attend school. The teachers are very supportive, loving, and patient. The lady coaches are very good and really get to know the kids on a personal level. They have had a great year and a lot of wins,and my daughter has grown as a student as an athlete. Live Oak Ridge has been a place where I have been contacted as soon as something happend from their personal cell phones. I am impressed, the number is not even blocked! They do a great job, I think if you a really a involved parent and they know you and see you, they make a good effort to always keep you informed. Maybe, instead of complaing just go to the school and get involved, everyone is very open especially the lady coaches.

It is a good school. However, sometimes I feel that some of the things that go on are unorganized. Now I understand the testing schedule, but I feel on certain occassions the Principal is slight bit unorganized.

This school is out of control! The police have had to come to the schol on numerous occasions within the past month. The principal is never visable, only a lifesize picture which she has hung in the entry way. Obviously children need to see an authority figure in person, not just a life=size photograph of whom they think is the principal. My children just transfered to this school and are afraid to go to school because of the lack of discipline exhibited by the students in this school. I plan on moving again, just so my kids feel safe.

Live Oak is a GREAT school. I love the fact that the school actually have teachers who love to get involved with the students. The AVID Progream is exceptional and my daughter absolutely shines uder the instruction of Mrs. C. I just wish more parents would vote 'yes' to inplement a school uniform policy.

The academic program is very good. It has a decent curriculum. The music, art, and sports programs are also good. They win alot and the coaches dont push them too far. the parental envolvment could probably be a little higher, but they dont want any help. everytime i try, they just push me away. But over al, this school is good.
