    Lane is an amazing school. It has had some problems but the staff is doing the best they possibly can. There are just a few students who refuse to behave and that's probably because their parents let them get away with anything. I love Lane and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Go Vikings!!!

    I cant wait till my kids get to Snider (Snider) staff will not put up with the delinquents that my kids are putting up with at LANE! Lane is a very 'laxy-daisy' school. Administration is VERY sub-par!!

    Jefferson Middle has much better test scores than Lane. Therefore I will send my child to Jefferson. I think the kids at Lane get away with entirely too much. There needs to be after school supervision while kids are waiting for their parents to pick them up!

    Lane is a great learning place. The staff is very cooperative. Lane is definitly a safe learning environment. I personally think that Lane Middle School is one of the best Middle Schools in the city. Lane also has great test scores.
