    "I was a new student here and my experience was not the best to say the least. Most teachers were friendly and nice and the school had an interesting fine arts program, I mean, but I found it extremely hard to get used to the school. I don't think I ever will actually. Compared to my past schools I felt that some areas needed to be worked on such as social studies because it seems to have a weak curriculum. I found it interesting that the north Chicago kids who go here stick out like sore thumbs since lake bluff kids dress affluent. There seems to be an invisible economic and social boundary line between the two regions as I see it. The most disappointing part of the school I thought was the principal, Nate Blackmer. I found myself relating him to a cheesy salesman who wants to appear friendly but it's because it is part of job to be. He just seems fake and when I asked him something, he made an excuse of how busy he was instead of even attempting to listen. Also he sees me and knows who I am but ignored me, which is definitely not the best welcoming behaviour."

    "I feel that the current Principal, Nathan Blackmer, brings a high degree of professionalism and a strong sense of caring to the Lake Bluff Middle School and am very pleased that he is here"

    "This school is an interesting school. Although the new principal here is not nearly as good as Ms. O'Hara, this school is still really nice. The trips our school takes are awesome."

    "Lake Bluff Middle School provides a solid education. However, the school is lacking a good science lab and there are a few new teachers who are a bit 'green' and have a difficult time dealing with day to day discipline problems. The Middle School building itself is another matter, as it is really a few buildings of different architectural styles attached to one another. The school is in need of an overhaul. The Middle School will receive a mechanical upgrade, a new stage but no science lab upgrade."

    "This middle school is an ideal place where the children learn about themselves under the watchful eye of caring teachers. The academics are top notch and the fine arts program is unparalleled by any middle school I have ever seen. The sports teams are slightly below average, but this doesn't seem to be the focus of the community. Parents can get involved in many ways at this school, from volunteering in classrooms to shelving books to leading a club. It is a school that focuses on the betterment of individual children and has a goal to help each child become a positive member of society, while preparing them for rigorous academic careers that lie ahead for most of them."
