    Overall Lanier schools are pretty good. Could do better with tutoring students who need extra help. Also Need better communication between parents and teachers.

  • (6 years ago)

    I have found the Lanier Co. School systen to be above average. Having 2 children in middle school I have always been informed by the staff of any situtions that needed correcting before it became a problem. The teachers are parents also and have great concern for their students.
