Montgomery Lower Mid School Ratings & Reviews

January 28, 2016 Submitted by a student
I was a new student coming in at 6th grade. It was hard to transition in, considering none of my teachers knew that I was new and I didn't know a lot about the culture here and the fact that the school was so large no one even noticed me in the hallways. There was no one trying to help me navigate through the hallways. No introductions. It also has a very 'elementary' vibe, having read-a-loud, cheesy decorations, and morning meeting. The teachers, however, are not as good as they are said to be because they don't do a very good job of explaining things. Also, the principal boasts about having no-bullying and that the kids in Montgomery are the best there is, but that is not the case. Walking down the hallways on the first day was miserable, attempting to make friends by smiling and saying hi and in return got a strange look and a head turning away. And of course gossiping is inevitable but the comments I heard coming out of the kid's mouths made me sick such as racial slurs and jokes about things that shouldn't be joked about. The principal's signs about no bullying did no help because of the student's arrogance and the kids were very rude to the lunch ladies which made me really upset. They would chant, "Where's our lunch? We want food!" Which I find really disrespectful. I came from a school where most of the school was caucasian and it was different seeing so many people of different races but something struck me as I sat at the lunch table with a couple girls I met. There wasn't a lot of unity in the diversity. The Chinese kids sat with the Chinese kids, the white kids would sit with the white kids, and sometimes an Indian would join them, but it made me feel so limited to the people that I could be friends with, and I like to know a lot of people to say hi to in the hallways but I felt like it wasn't possible. Overall, I can see why the people who have lived here their entire lives enjoy the school but its really hard for new students and the school is not as innocent as it seems honestly. However, the after school program was nice, having a mini tutor every week if needed. Good luck to all of the new students!

Superb teachers; misguided curriculum. My 6th grader attended a private school previously, and wanted to give LMS a try. We agreed. The teachers at this school are of the highest calibre; however, the school day is a jam-packed, non-stop marathon from 8:08 until 2:55, with only a half-hour lunch, NO breaks of ANY kind (no recess, no study hall), and only three-minute passing periods. My child comes home exhausted, but NOT from intellectually challenging academics. At his previous private school, the standards were MUCH higher, homework load was greater, but the daily schedule was built in a much smarter way: it included a half-hour snack/recess break mid-morning, and another recess after lunch. P.E. was always scheduled in the afternoon. The fact that the human brain requires intermittent breaks like these in order to optimize learning has been borne out consistently by YEARS of research--I am incredulous that LMS does not acknowledge this. In an effort to provide a rich curriculum, what they have created is a pressure cooker in which mental energies are depleted and academics are diluted. LMS teachers, students (and taxpayers) deserve better than this--MUCH better!

I am a Student here and I have to Say the Principal is Very nice,All the Teachers are superb except for a certain teacher i won't name. Let's just say she is very strict and irritable.Anyways,They have A Great No bullying System and Great After School clubs.Though Here is a Warning for 5th graders:Health class is Awkward,To say the least ^_^ . They have a Math Support Class With a very Excellent And Nice teacher and they have Great lunches.The 6th graders go on a Trip to the Museum of Natural History. Every once in a while they have something like a School dance for 5th and 6th graders;It's called Fun Friday. Cons: The pressure at this school is Quite Outrageous. Even Smart Children Get sent to Math support. Lots of Snobs. Since this is a VERY rich area,lots of children there will tease. And i mean,They are vicious.

My children have been coming through the LMS for 2 years and there are more to follow. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this school. The staff is amazing and the principal is unbelievable with the children. I wish that the whole school would move with my children. The teachers are excellent and I have seen tremendous growth with my children.

My daughter had alot of fun here and worked very hard as well. The teachers were great, stayed in touch often and are more then helpful. There is alot of homework which was most of the time overwhelming to my 6th grader. She would break down in tears over it. I do sincerely like the school system but I am worried that the pressure will get worse as they move up,(as I read in the other reviews) but where is the better alternative??... I don't think there is one. Nothing is perfect.
