    "Throughout my experiences with Luther L. Wright, I have known it to be run by a staff concerned only with the politics involved. Student/teacher relationships are almost non-existent and there is an overwhelming sense of angst among the student body. Favoritism is shown to students who participate in athletics and scholastic achievements and personal worth are thrown under the bus. If you can at all avoid it, going to LLW is not the best choice. Not by a long shot."

    "The school system here is, in my opinion, very corrupt. They do not give one priority about student education. All they like to do is cram kids into a building that has been in an existence since Ironwood's more progressive days. The kids here are very, very undisciplined. Some kids are alright and cool, but the majority just aren't all up to the bat. So, if you are considering going to schools in the Gogebic Range, keep this in mind."

    "I agree with the comment on for the handfull of teachers who care, 2 handfuls don't. Agenda to use the restroom? Lose it and pay $5 for your child to be able to use the restroom. I think the health department should be called. Ask students to live the "Wright Way" when the teachers and administration don't. Have a dress code for students when teachers don't follow it. Have a problem with a teacher or administrator and go to the school board to have the 'good ol boys club' agree with teachers and blame the kids. Have 22 of 31 children in a science class fail and blame it on the kids. They teach for the MEAP, period."

    "I greatly advise referring to a school's website to gain general technical information regarding any school. This school's 2010 annual education report, found on their website, can be accessed through this link: http://www.ironwood.k12.mi.us/index_files/fullannualedreportLLW.pdf"

    "Much like prisons, this school has severe attendance and disciplinary problems because it favors punishment over rehabilitation. Countless Sat. school sessions will not solve anything. The community is killing its children."
