    I am a 7th grade student going to the 8th grade this year I have attended Lewis Chapel Middle school for 2 years now . Lewis Chapel Middle isn't the greatest schools in Cumberland County but it has good students . Lewis Chapel is a poor school but their teachers are fun and loving towards each and every student they have . The sports might not be much of anything except the for the football team but at least we try . If people would stop talking about Lewis Chapel Middle school and try to help maybe it could be a place for children to come and learn and get an education their parents may like . I personally think that their educators do a very well job just because most of them are African American doesn't mean a thing .I'm glad to say that I'm a proud student of Lewis Chapel Middle school and that I have the best teachers that try and do their best no matter what .

    This is got to be one of the worst schools I have ever seen in my entire life I mean this place looks like a prison its just really sad. My child is currently attending and it's like trying to pull teeth to get someone to answer simple questions no one knows anything and they are rude. The school work is not challenging or interesting enough for my child. My child's school previous years which is another cumberland county school was great. My child says the children at the school are nice so its not the children and you have good and bad kids every where. It just needs more caring staff and not someone there just to get a paycheck.

    This has to be the poorest excuse for a school I have ever came across in the nine years of my son attending school and for that matter in my whole life. The administration is horrid. They do not return phone calls. My son was late coming home from school by over and hour I called them and they had no idea where he was or that his bus had broken down. They refer to their students by nine digit numbers instead of their names. The teachers could care less what grades your child gets or helping them in anyway. I feel they want to sit their for their paychecks and go home. This school is a prison system preparing our children for the future that the faculty seems our children will have prison and thats it. I am never contacted to help with anything and when I contact them they never call back. My son came home with a massive bruise from being hit by one of the ghetto bebes kids running the halls there and I called three days in a row for them to give me answers and all I was told is that next time they will do something about it. I have never hated a school or its faculty but I despise this place.

    I just moved to North Carolina. I expected far better than this mess pretending to be a school. Lewis Chapel Middle School has to be the armpit of North Carolina. I completed the enrollment packet for my child and I showed up for open house .We were given a schedule with 6th grade classes and he is in the 7th grade! Not to mention that the open house was absolute chaos. No signs directing you were to go. They had 6-8th grades all there at one time for a two hour period. I had to ask about everything! I asked a teacher about the bus schedules/lunch periods. She acted offended that I asked. I interruped her conversation with another teacher at the raffle table. I guess raffles are far too important! We went to meet the teachers on my childs schedule. One of the teachers was actually setting at her desk in the dark (for open house) with the computer/overhead projector on. She didnt have a sign in sheet for parents and barely wanted to shake my hand. RUDE!!! I met another teacher and she was extermely friendly and told my child to come to her for assistance. As a teacher this is appalling!!! And we wonder why our child are the way they are!!! I just pray for my son and his safety!!!

    this school is a great school. i am a student here.yes there some bad kids and good.but this school is a good school is just have a few students who are not working to get there education and bringing others down.but majority of this school students are doing good.some parents may think that the head of the school (principal & etc.) is not doing there job but it is hard managing over 700 students and one principal can NOT do everything that is needs to be done.there are about 50-70 staff members here and over 700 hundred students (that alot to me) and about 50 of that 50-70 is teachers.there is about atleast 30 students signed to one teacher better yet 700 student signed to one principal.so next time think and research before you right such negative reviews about a school most of you parents havent been to.

    I've been attending Lewis Chapel for 3 years and I believe the only reason I know anything is because I am A.G. Identified. It's sad that the normal kids don't get a good enough education because of various things going on throughout the school. The principal tried to take control of this school but the students are so rebellious that they do whatever no matter if they get out of school suspension in school suspension or detention. The teachers are too focased on what they bad children are doing that they can't focas on their lesson and that means that no ones going to learn that day. They only focas on the basketball and not on clubs and their are some really good ones created by the teachers. I really want every parent to try to get their child into Seventy First Classical if their in Lewis Chapel district.

    Don't send your child to this school.. Education is not the school's first priority.. The students are not getting the education they deserve. I think if Mrs. Strong was running the school we would have better test scores and she would do a better job at keeping the students safe.

    I'm a 8th grader at LCMS and i just moved to North Carolina in September and i came from New York. When i went to that school i came home that day i wanted to leave bullies nobody wanted to talk to me or anything

    There are to many bad kids in school and they are chasing the good kids away.I say the teachers and the principal are not doin their job. If you hate your child send them here.Because its tourture. (

    We moved just to get our son and our younger son that would have attended out of there. Avoid this school if you care for your children.

    i am a 7th grade student at LCM. This school is more bad than it is good. There are bullies low test scores and students may not learn as much as they need to. This school has a good side too. Teachers do there best to encourage students to want to learn there are many clubs and extracurricular ativities. It depends on what type of enviroment your cild is used to. For a student who is used to a very safe fun caring enviroment this is not the place to send them to.

    I have a 12 year old 7th grader and I have so far been pleased with Lewis Chapel. My child belonged on the Explorers team. I was very pleased with two teachers in particular Ms. Canteen and Mr. Gilchrist. These two teachers went beyond simply educating my child they formed a relationship with him which prompted him to do his best. There wasn't a week that he came home and didn't have something positive to say about them. Even his other teachers get high reviews from me. The worst thing that my son had to say about the other 3 ladies is that they make him study. Good for them. At first I was very concerned about seding my child to Lewis Chapel and had considered Ann Chesnut but I wasn't sure about the whole year round program. I am very glad I made the choice that I did.

    I'm a seventh grade student at LCMS and yes sometimes bullies get off easy and yes there are fights and yes we aren't the best school in cumberland county. But my friends and I get at it pretty well I mean my classmates have abilities to rap sing act (my gift) play instruments dance step and other preforming gifts. Test scores are important but they aren't THE most important thing. Our school has been misjudged a lot I have seen schools worse than ours. We actually have a forensics group of about 5-7 people we were the smallest group but guess what we pulled off 1st place in dramatic interpretation. All of our students placed that night and none of them were last. Our orchestra got to play with Fayetteville State University so why are we getting all the negativity. I'm in forensics and orchestra.

    My daughter is a 6th grader at this school and since the beginning of the school year there has not been one day that my little girl has not told some story about so and so got into a fight or someone mouthed off to the teacher. My child is one of the timid ones and has been a target once or twice from bullies. I had to call the school to find out about an incident and all they did was make my daughter fill out some form. Those who are not doing what is expected of them to pass and succeed should be repremanded the school refuses to take the appropriate measures when it comes to desciplining its students. Fact is the students don't fear the consequences so THEY run the school.

    This school is not up to MY standards for my child going there. This school is mostly about being the ''coolest'' school.. not really getting an education

  • (7 years ago)

    If you have a choice....get your child out of there!!!! The teachers may be 'nice people' but they are lacking control over the children. There is a huge emphisis on after school and extracurricular activities. The school continues to drop in scores yet refuses to focus on academia!! What good is a step team going to do for a child in the real world job market or college? There is no concern for safety or helping children learn only to have fun and get by on the EOG. Meek and well behaved children are overlooked and often times neglected in this school. Bullies are abundant and the attitude is that well behaved children need to just toughen up! I am very forturnate that my son has not been a victim! ! You can also forget use of technology as teachers dont even answer email! Disgusting!
