I am a former student at LRMS. I believe that the school was like a family to me. The teachers were great and the students were amazing. Some of the teachers don't care and just want there money but some of them do. For instance Mrs. Flint is the worlds greatest math teacher and she will do anything to help you learn. Mrs. Hogan is the best science teacher you will find. She helps her kids and makes it fun for us. Then there are teachers that will make you feel like your at home like Mrs. Rettig Mrs. Pohlplatz and Mrs. Bulatovich. I love LRMS I believe its a great school to attend.
I had 6 children go through LRMS and each has gone on to graduate from Calumet. What you put into a school is what you get out of it as is in everything you do in life. Strive to succeed and you will be successful. It is our job as parents to teach our children discipline not the teachers. Parents need to support the educational process in order for the process to work. Don't believe everything you hear.
I think that the school diciple policies are unfair.
I think that lake ridge middle school turned out to be a pretty good school. I was told so many bad things that were going on there it turned out not to be so bad after all my son will be in 7th grade honors class and my daughter will be coming in as a 6th grader and i feel she will do fine.
I think LRMS is a good school. The teachers really try to work with the students. Its not a perfect school but i approve of it.
This school would be good if the kids didn't act like they are so tough.
I believe that this school has a poor quality of teaching and unfair discipline policies.
