  • Not any more issues that that of typical middle school behaviors. James Kusmaul retired last year and we were very concerned about who would take his place since he has been an iconic figure at LMS, kind of like Mrs. Darden;) However after the first week I think the new guy, Bill Farrell is going to do a great job as well. For the most part, polite staff, polite kids, and admin that are willing to work at problems. We love LMS.

  • This school is OK. It sucks, but for the most part 4 out of 7 of my teachers are awesome. I hate lunch time because you have to sit in sections. You cant even hang out with your friends. I mean, COME ON. I am in the 6th grade, and absolutely hate it.
