    The teachers are great but there are so many kids that are trouble makers and say a lot of bad things its a little dirty like gum all under the desks but it's the best in the Columbia County.

    LCMS is a great school with great teachers and they really make each child feel special and not left behind and each and every one feels equal with all the others.

    Exciting things continue to happen for students at LCMS. Students are challenged motivated and supported both academically and socially. The school has maintained a strong focus on reading with encouraging results. Continuous staff development for our highly dedicated and caring teachers ensures further success. We work hard to make our learning environment safe and orderly as well as engaging and interesting with great value placed on creativity. We love to talk with parents and other stake-holders about our school. Administrators have an open-door policy. So please do not hesitate to call or visit!

    Some of the teachers do not care about the students. They are there just to get a paycheck. They had failed to help my son. I winded up having to take my child out and teach him myself.

    Two of my children attendes LCMS. I found the faculty to be arrogant and non caring. I advise any parent to research the discipline records for this school before making any decision.

    This school is better than the high school a few blocks away parents are allover and most kids are satisfied and the discipline is good

    LCMS is great! We have a large amount of school spirit! We have great teachers here too. Our musical dept. is fabulous! Our band drumline Chorus and Choral ensemble is great! The chorus has a musical every year that turns out great! We have a new Choral instructer this year with many great ideas. All though our last instructer was wonderful had to sadly move away.

    My child is a straight 'A' student at this school and is now in the 7th grade. He loves it there and I believe that this is one of the greatest public schools that you can find.
