  • I am a student at LPMS, i know that many of the teacher in the school have be working their brains off so students can learn how to work with the subject,but studens are getting stuck for some reasson that the teachers can't notice. It might be for home problems,bulling,lack of interes ect... The point is that we have to let the students know that someone does care of what is happening arround them. If the school creats a club for students that feel loost or with out asperations. Students may get motivated about school we bring guesst speakears not just for a certain tipe of students ,but for the hool school. One other very importaint event that could happen is making a tipe of warkshoops to get to know our little community = this can also help students understan how importaint education is for them for the future. The work shops can be mixed with students strugglin and with students who get the idea in why education is needed to live a life that is actually called life. This may allow students share their point of view of the school enviornment. Therefowerth, many of the schools everyday delemas with the kids may significaintly reduce. Staff from the school has really been a awsom and cool people to be around with during school hours. for the playground safety there should probably be one more adult out in the basecketball area beacaus from where the suppervisers are wich is the lunch area, there isn't much view to supervise the entire area. The principal is a geat person once you get to meet him a little.Over all the school is a very good school to be in, but it just needs to add some things here and there. Comepared to other years La Paz is the most peaceful school to be in.
