    Lyles Middle School is an awesome place to work. The fun and safe culture of the school is created by the Administrators that run the school. I love coming to work everyday and teaching the students at this school. Lyles Middle School has a lot to offer especially for students that may be struggling to find their nitch in life or a group to hand out with because we have such a diverse school.

    Two years ago I would have rated this school with one or two starts. The current leadership has and continues to change the school culture to one that is focused on the learning of every student. The facilities are clean inside and out. Lyles is as safe place for students to learn. The staff continues to receive high quality training and are learning to work together to ensure students learn at high levels. There is certainly room for improvement but the staff at Lyles is hard at work and meeting the challenge of change with hard work and dedication. Looking forward to see continued change and growth!

    Education that's PERSONABLE and CARING is what we deliver at Lyles Middle School. With a top notch administration team that puts a PREMIUM on EXCELLENCE our culture has changed for the better since I began my 6 years tenure here. Parents are constantly encouraged to join in actively with our partnership! Our substitutes are considered an educational extension of our academic community here. I say "it's certainly a great day to be a Lumberjack!"

    Lyles Middle School has really come a long way in the past couple of years! Under the new administration headed by Principal Darrin Hemphill Lyles is being transformed. The culture is more positive the administration is more supportive and the teachers really work together for the success of the students. Although we are hoping for even more parent involvment progress is being made to get more parents and community members into the school with the "Interactive Parent Days" and "Community Open House." In addition much more effort is being made to get the students prepared for high school. With the implementation of the AVID program even mroe students are leaving Lyles being prepared for higher level classes in high school in turn preparing them for college. Like any other school there is always work to do. However we are working really hard to improve on a daily basis!

    I think others should know that Lyles Middle School is an exceptional school While working with a very difficult population the teachers are diligent in ensuring student success. Teachers come in early leave late and work on Saturday to provide additional support to students.

    Lyles is a place where everyone is welcomed. Teachers and administration work hard FOR the students in order to ensure success. Teachers and administration also encourage parent participation in school activities on a weekly basis. Students are geared toward college and careers that will showcase their natural abilities and talents.

    My child started the school last year and has completed his 7th grade year this year...I have met with counselors but never saw the principal. I emailed teachers and got no response so that says volumes but this coming year I will be relentless and the teachers will respond. See its up to the parents to hold teachers and staff accountable. Also know your child.

    School has a disciplinary problem. Students are very disrespectful and unruly. Teachers spend most of the time getting the class in order than teaching. Don't send your child here. Unruly and disrespectful students will influence your child.

    My child had a wonderful experience at Lyles. The teachers really worked with us and were happy to answer every email every question and a couple of them came to extra activites outside of the school to see my child in those activities. Several went above and beyond with communicating with me. Actually getting in touch with me regarding homework class work and grades. My child was very blessed to have the teachers she had this year. Communication is the key but it is up to the parent to make it happen. Parents be involved! it was out last year and it was the best!
