"I am a parent of students in the LB school district and a former student myself. This wasn't the best of schools when I attended, but it has taken such a drastic decline since I was a student. The city, itself, has declined. The students are rough and rude. The counselor's, administration, and staff seem to care (they like to feed you a condescending tone and attitude, as if your not smart enough to catch on), but refuse to acknowledge any issues in the school. They claim the child's problems or discontent MUST stem from issues at home and feel it will be an accepted excuse (probably due to the fact that its an abbot school district). Guess what, ITS THE SCHOOL!!! My child is miserable going there. She does NOT feel safe or encouraged. My child wants to move far away from LB schools and I cant say I blame her. Being a homeowner, in THIS school district, it will be hard to sell, therefore hard to move. I would advise anyone looking to move into LB, seek an alternative to LBMS and LBHS"
"I am a student at LBMS and this school is absolutely horrible. I am on the leadership floor, i am honors and i have many after school programs. Not all but some of the teachers have no control over the classroom. One of my friends says all he does in reading is sit there and chatter. Is this the kind of education you want for your child. The biggest incident i was sitting next to my friends who were arguing and i the bystander got hit in the head and was gushing blood. The guidance counselor did not even ask if i was okay. she sent me and my friend who headbutted me to walk to the nurses office w/o an adult. This injury got me 9 stitches.DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL SYSTEM. YOU CAN DO BETTER. LOOK AT THIS RATING COME ON MAN"
"its horrible and the teachers have no patience at all.the school is run by a bunch of morons. and the alternative school where they should have even more patience,have none at all.the school is for children that have different problems some need smaller classes some need more PATIENCE and they dont have any of that. one teacher kicked a student,nice right.thats where we send our children and they get abused.or sent home for doing small things that can be fixed by the staff.instead they throw them to the side like garbage.i would not recommend this school system to anyone.so what we have alot of things for the kids to get into,like sports and clubs.its all for nothing if the staff is no good.the middle school and alternative school are the worse school we have here.seems like after k-5 it goes down hill. sad but very true!!!! for the teachers they get 0 for no patience and lack of control.principal leadership def. a 0. I DO MY JOB NOW THEY NEED TO DO THEIRS.THESE TEACHERS GET PAID BIG BUCKS FOR WHAT?? TO HAVE NO PATIENCE?NO CONTROL? SHAME ON LB SCHOOLS"
"I attended LB Junior High and Senior High Schools in the 1970's; my three children attended both schools, LB has the best curriculum, sports, students, teachers, staff in Monmouth County. We are the best. My son is a para-professional with the LB Board of Education, he's been at the JFS, Gregory, Lenna Conrow, LB Middle School, LB High School, Audrey Clark, and he loves it. The schools, the kids, his co-workers and the administration."
"ok no school is perfect, and lbms proves that. However, that doesnt mean that us students dont get a good education. A lot of people involved with the school, including parents and students, say that the school is going on a downward spiral and always will be, and then they usually put in something about our bad test scores. But this is how I think of it: The students in our school that are motivated and want to get a good education usually do, and the students who dont care about getting a good education dont recieve the results that the motivated students get."
