LMS falls short in keeping parents involved and informed. As a parent, I have experienced where teachers (she knows who she is) will allow an Honor Student who begins to make Fs in just one grading period and not inform the parent. I had even contacted/emailed the teacher concerning a possible decline in grades and still nothing until after the 6 weeks grade was posted. How can a teacher not see a "red flag" when this occurred, especially when the parent brings it to the teacher's attention. To make it worse, the administration did not think this was alarming and stated when asked "an honor student all of sudden begins to make mostly Fs in one class for one 6 week period - is that not a red flag" and they stated "NO". To top it off - I just participated in this years LMS Orientation and the speech was about parent participation in their childs academics - REALLY! What about the teacher/administration's cooperation when a parent wants to be involved. I see why the community rating for LMS is low. Unfortunately it only takes a couple of staff to create this type of rating because all other techers at LMS have been wonderful and have been a positive influence to my children.

This school has tons of mold.You can feel the air quality change when you walk from inside to outside. One classroom even had a window fall out! Some kids just bareley got missed by the falling window. If i had a choice I wouldn't go to school their because the classrooms and the bathrooms are disgusting. Although, the teachers and staff are very nice. All of the teachers want you to go as far as you can, and they will help you in any way possible. The principal is pretty strict, but she keeps us in shape. Overall, Lumberport is a good place to go to school if you don't mind the mold.

I have 2 daughters in Lumberport Middle School, one is in the 8th Grade and the other in the 6th Grade. My daughter who is now in the 8th grade had a very tough time in Math in the 7th grade and so we pretty much had to teach her alot after school at home. My other daughter is just beginning in this school this year so I really can't comment on how she will do but they are both very enthusiastic about school this year and I feel it has a lot to do with the teachers they are going to have this year. As for the principal--he is a fantastic person who has only the greatest interest in the students and their education. He was a past vice principal and teacher so he knows what he's doing and does a very good job. He is fair but also does believe in discipline. Both of my daughters have the utmost respect for him and their teachers. Overall, the school is a very good school with excellent teachers who care about their students. I am very pleased with the school and I know if I have a problem all I have to do is call and talk to the principal and the problem is taken care of immediately.
