Cliques run strong in this school. The kids are mean and there is little help to those who are being bullied. It was suggested for my 12 year old to seek outside counseling to cope with the bullying. The teachers do not have the time to look behind their backs long enough to notice who is getting picked on and there are plenty of times some students get picked on, name called in the hallway in between classes.
Lombardi Middle School has been an excellent school for my two children. They both had excellent teachers who challenged them to excel. Having met most of my children's teachers, I can say that they come across as wanting to do their best at getting students ready for high school and college. I think that they succeed at this for the most part. I would not choose any other Middle School.
I have mixed feelings about Lombardi. I think the kid who excels naturally will be able to excel further. I think the size is out of control and it feels very impersonal. The 'mean girl' clique system is strong at Lombardi. Thick skinned children, attractive and smart children, or children with a loyal social network going in to the school may feel very comfortable there.
We have enjoyed this school. We found the classes to be challenging and the teachers have high expectations of the students.
My daughter is in her third year here and it's been a great experience. She has excelled because of excellent teaching. The teachers go out of their way to challenge her, and I appreciate that. The only thing I've been disappointed in is communication.. an e-newsletter would be more timely.
Lombardi has an excellent teaching staff for leading our children into the future as successful, young adults. Thank you!
