    This school sucks so much. It is a nightmare here. Don't ever go to this school.

    Excellent school. Summit High might not be number 1 in NJ but I would be shocked if LCJSMS isn't number 1! The teachers are amazingly caring and dedicated they stay before and after school for extra help. There are numerous clubs and programs to get kids involved and motivate them to succeed. I am more than happy with this school and would highly recommend it to any parent.

    It is a nice school with teachers who want their students to suceed and stay before and after to give help! They have much better food than the elementary schools too!
