    this school is all about brown nosing and who has the most money if you are not in the "in crowd " the school doesnt know you excist and could care less if you pass or fail even if your child was failing you wouldnt know till report card time i know from experience my child went from an a to an f student and nobody cared to tell me i found out on report cards and had to nag the school till they gave me a parent teacher meeting but they didnt care once i got there it was theres so many students its hard to keep track isnt that the schools job

    The quality of academics is extremely poor at this school. Some classes are just ok. It is left up to the parents at home to follow through with their child's education. Only the kids who have involved parents get an average education. There are so many discipline problems within this school that if a 'A' student slips down to a 'C' student nobody cares and parents are not informed until report cards or progress reports. Extracurricular activities are just like any other school. No different from any other school but less opportunity for most of the students. No parent involvement! I am not a student! I am a very involved parents. I am extremely unhappy with this school all programs and faculty. The rating based on test scores appear to be accurate.

    I go to this school and although some teachers need to try harder its a great school. I'm a gifted student and this school gives me a challenge. There are a lot of extra curricular classes to join.

    Sorry there was no place for a student review so I had to click on parent.I am a student at LMS and I have nothing bad at all to say about our school! The teachers are wonderful along with our principal and vice principals and staff.Being at this school for the last four years has been a great journey and I have learned alot!Not one time at LMS have I felt unprotected or scared.The sports and extracurricular activites are wonderful and have a major varitey! Being a cheerleader and running track is amazing!At LMS every student is treated fairly and favorites are not picked. through the eyes of our wonderful principle we are all the same!. Thanks Logan Middle School for a great eight years of knowledge!

    I have always had great results from the teachers from our school. They all work together. I also think that the quick responses from teachers help keep our kids on track. Some teachers like Mrs. Workman are exceptional. She has a web site that you can go to to get their grade and keep up on their work. She also sends out emails to parents to let us know of events that are approaching. I dont always get notes so that is very much apprecciated. I know there are other teachers that do this and it is so helpful.If more of the teachers would make their grades accessable to the parents then we wouldnt have to call the teachers so often. But as a whole the school is great our teachers and staff work together to better teach all the students. Parentsmust do their part in keeping their kids on task.

    I am happy that I have children who go to this school and like the staff here who help my child be a better student. The compassion and concern for the students are apparent at all levels.

    This school totally depends on brown nosing instead of kids. If a student needs extra help time or attention or even isn't exactly like every other student nobody cares and your kid gets lost in the teachers own selfish ambitions.
