    "A very tightly knit teacher community with strong parent involvement. It is amazing to see teachers and parents working seamlessly. Before the state moved to the Common Core, LQMS was an 821 school and proof of this academic success is with the recent Golden Ribbon School designation. You Rock, LQMS!!!!"

    "We are very pleased with the school and teachers. There is a great sense of school pride and most teachers seem to genuinely care about all students. Our son is doing very well. He is challenged in the classroom and has a fair amount of homework. My other son went to JG and wasn't happy We think because of the large class sizes The only thing is there are not very many parents who help out at LQMS."

    "I am a current teacher, and I have also taught at other schools. This school is by far one of the best. The teachers work extremely hard, and one reason is that the principal expects nothing less. Another reason is that they are truly dedicated to their profession and their students. Many wonderful changes have been made at this school with one goal in mind: make LQMS a school where students feel proud to be there;provide them with a high quality education; create an environment where they feel safe and comfortable; and provide a foundation that will prepare them to be successful in high school. I think we are doing that, and while not always perfect, we are moving in the right direction ."

    "I am a former teacher at the school, and I, as well as many other teachers, truly did care for my students and worked very hard to develop quality programs for them, as well as standards based instruction that was engaging and challenging. The school has many problems. One of the problems was that there was always new mandated strategies or teaching phosphors -often multiple new ideas implemented at once. As a result, teachers never had time to focus on planning quality lessons. There is also a lot of teacher turn over due to the administration, who bully some teachers, and "look the other way" for others. Decisions about cutting certain classes while other classes lacking in quality or usefulness remain are soley political. The school needs to be closed and reopened with new leadership and name change if they truly want to change the student results and overall morale of the school."
