Litchfield Middle School Ratings & Reviews
Teachers offer student plenty of time to get extra help if needed. Like that they are teaching students responsibility.
Now, I am being very generous giving this school a two star rating. Honestly, this school was plan bad. I was a student at this school a while ago, and found this experience to be very poor. I will have to tell you that the teachers, when I went, in the fifth, sixth, and seventh grade were great, except one teacher told a student that they could not pursue a career in a professional sport. That was crossing the line. Now, when I got to eight grade, I felt unwanted, like nothing really mattered. One of the teachers is absolutely god awful the whole year, yelling, grading each and every homework assignment, and taking a kid in to the hallway each class. They would give out tests that were unrelated to the topic recently reviewed. another one graded papers like they were suppose to be Senior quality. WE didn't even learn much in that class, but read articles that SHE answered the questions to the packet for us. Overall, the eighth grade was the worst year at the school. If you are looking for a place to move, or a new middle school for your child, do not come here for their eighth grade experience.
I have two kids in the middle school and feel that the teachers and administration do an excellent job challenging students. They have a very strong music program and recently added a second computer lab. Great community, great teachers and a very supportive environment.
Very disappointing how this school handles gym. The school doesn't have gym every quarter. A child would have gym 1 quarter of the entire school year, and not any other quarter. People complain about child obesity, so it makes no sense to not have gym throughout a school year. I don't know about the high school, but the lower school has a rotation of gym, art, music, library. I have no idea why the middle school doesn't do the same thing. The middle school also doesn't have music. A child would only have music if they joined chorus or band. For a child to not have gym class, especially in winter, is ridiculous. I wish I had researched the school system before moving here 12 years ago. Live and learn, I made a huge mistake. Great town, great people, great teachers, but there is so much disorganization in the schools. For ie. waiting until the very last minute to announce a concert, not having gym class year round. A positive is the middle school has the child's grades online, so I can see their grades as a quarter goes, but the lower school doesn't have grades online. I hope things improve as I am thinking about moving.
Fantastic school with teachers and administrators who care about the kids education. LMS has teachers who are committed to education and the school provides an environment that supports their growth. The entire staff is very supportive to the children and provide the tools needed to learn and grow. As parents, stay involved in their education and know what they are doing in the classroom. I am so happy with the school and would never think of sending my children anywhere different.
