    Military families consider yourself warned. Stay away from West Lee this has to be the most unsupportive school towards military and their children. They simply don't care here.

    This school is very bad. I think it is the worst of all LCS middle schools. I feel like it is unclean and students can do whatever they want in the halls classrooms bathrooms and classrooms. The teachers don't care what the students do or say.

    I would like to see more parental involvement at this school. This school has a lot of potential. The valuable resources that are available here should be tapped into in order to make the school great.
