    "Hi everyone! This is my first year in the 6th grade magnet program so I'm just starting to experience some new things, but overall, this school is amazing!! The teachers may be a little strict, however, they just want to set a good example for your child and to be responsible of how they act. The staff, same too; they may frequently tell your child to stop talking but they are just doing for their own good. I've noticed there's a leadership program involved, too. They are very good leaders, along with their hilarious teacher. They also have these spirit games and various activities that will put your child in a spectacular mood! So far, Lawrence is the best middle school ever!!!! GO LAWRENCE LIONS!!"

    "The Gifted/Highly Gifted/High Ability magnet at Lawrence is fantastic! All of our teachers are highly trained experts in their respective field of study (no "combo" teachers who teach both Math/Science or English/History/Social Science). The magnet coordinator and teachers are always there to help students. The previous reviewer who commented on the math teacher, I'm afraid, does not understand what "differentiation" means in the context of gifted education. The magnet students take honors level courses that meet their need for an accelerated curriculum. The magnet teachers really encourage the development of higher level thinking skills and problem solving skills. Majority of students came from rigorous gifted magnet programs (Balboa, Welby Way) but there is no clique. After school programs are great! Learning Zone, Sports, Dance, etc. absolutely free of charge. I'm so glad I chose this magnet! When students graduate from a magnet program, they will automatically get 12 points they can use for any high school magnet program of their choice!"

    "The magnet coordinator, Mrs. Vallejo, is the best! She has an open door policy and she works tirelessly to make sure the program runs smoothly. Teachers are great and so is the administration. I highly recommend this program!"

    "I LOVE THIS PROGRAM! The Magnet Program at Lawrence Middle School offers amazing opportunities to the students. The classes are taught on a very high level, encouraging the kids to use critical thinking and make connections. The teachers are carefully chosen for their knowledge of the subject, their love of teaching, and their special ability to teach gifted students. The homework assignments are thoughtful and reasonable as to content, expectations, and amount. All teachers and administrators are available for conferences any time you or your child has a question or wants to discuss something. I watched my daughter form strong study habits, learn to organize her work and manage her time. become persevering in going in depth with her research, and really become scholarly. Elective choices are outstanding. The opportunity to study in Hypocrites Circle or Model U.N. promotes global awareness, world concerns, and explore career goals. Very exciting."
