    The school has gone down hill in the last couple of years. Bad teachers seem to making the decisions as to how it is run now!

    My daughter is just finishing up three wonderful years at Lyman-Moore and I could not be happier. Her teachers have gone above and beyond in providing her with very creative and challenging work. She definitely has been well prepared for a vigorous honors program at high school. I highly recommend this school.

    We have been disappointed since our child moved from Lyseth Elementary to Lyman Moore Middel School. This year our daughter has yet to have a math teacher. First the principal was teaching the class but now our daughter tells us that they have substitute teachers all the time. She has not been happy with her current teachers. We (including my daughter) have been confused and in the dark with regard to expectations and projects. Communication coming home is poor.
