    "Chain of Lakes has been a positive experience for our family. The academic challenges are appropriate and have pushed my children in a direction of growth. Students are expected to behave, learn, and make good choices. The staff is mostly very good teachers and the gifted and science programs have been great experience for us."

    "COLMS is a great middle school in Orlando. My son has been there for 2 1/2 years and has excelled every year. The staff is very educated and enthusiastic. The music program is strong. Sports are very competitive. Every grade uses Accelerated Reader. Lots of Opportunity to takes advanced classes. In 8th grade my son is taking 3 high school classes. The school is crowded but class size is great. Principal has control over the school. She is very strict and is no nonsense. Several after school clubs to get involve with. PTSA becoming more involved in school."

    "Chain of Lakes Middle School has programs to meet the needs of all children. From Gifted Classes, ESE Department, Honors Classes, AVID Program,Sports Programs, Art Program, Reflections,Music Department, High School Class Credit, and a strong PTSA. Students are encourage to be leaders and there are many resources to help students succeed Academically and Socially. COLMS implemented a "Love Pantry" last year to help families at the school and in the community. The Love Pantry provides families with food and clothing. Mrs. Furno, the school Principal is very involved with the students and their success at COLMS. The teachers are highly qualified and are dedicated to helping the students prepare for high school and helping them develop into successful students and young adults. My children have excelled at COLMS through the AVID and Honors classes. I am very happy with the school. Go Ospreys!"

    "The faculty at COL does an excellent job. Breaking up fights and getting hurt in the process should NOT be a job requirement. COL has one of the most caring staff members at COL, and he has to break up fights on a constant basis. Did anyone ever think about not blaming the SCHOOL, but instead keeping your kids in check?? If you live in the "WINDERMERE" area, put your child in Gotha Middle School instead. My child is thriving at COL, sorry about those of you that are not. My child, fortunately, is not being bullied there, either. Parents always like to place the blame on someone else. Your child's ability to cope starts at the home."
