    "Wonderful teachers, terrific principal (Mr Schar) and second-to-none amazing band program with Mr. Wamhoff. My two children attended here all three years until they culminated last week. I am pleased with the high quality of education at this school. My children were in the after school program - one in the sports program which was terrific and the other in the homework program in the library. The homework program was a bit long and tedious (but it allowed my son to finish his homework), but I typically arrived from work around 5 pm so my oldest was able to get some exercise once he arrived home. I was thrilled that this school provided free aftercare for the students! My children and I have great memories here - both utilized some portions of the special ed program and the teachers they had were phenomenal and caring. Really am so happy with the quality of their education!"

    "PROS: The magnet school has truly amazing teachers., and that is probably the most important thing at any school. They were able to make classes interesting, challenging and taught my child a lot. This school can be considered an exemplary one in the way bulling is handle. There were lots of field trips during the year and one overnight camp trip. CONS: After school program is beyond bad. Students are forced to sit silent and still in the library from 3 to 6. On the days that were too hot/cold/rainy/windy/etc PE classes turned into TV watching. Overall about 10% of PE classes students spent watching movies like "Chicken Little"."

    "I'm currently and almost graduate of Lawrence and I have to say this school has changed me life. I'm in the Magnet and their Magnet program is superior. Honors are also very good but don't sign into the Regulars; just a tip. The teachers really do care about students' education and future, and the staff there are very supporting. They have many games and events at the school and they make student life comfortable there. They do KNOW about bullying problems and they do HELP students and parents there with it. Overall this school is amazing and I would recommend giving this school a try! :)"

    "We are very grateful to have my daughter transition to Lawrence Middle School. This is our first year and so far this school has been excellent and kind to us parents. The faculty are very kind and always acknowledging every parents that enter the school and offices. The only problem and issues we have encountered is that there are children bullies coming from dysfunctional families/parents something every school have. But we made better choice than going to Columbus Middle School. We love this school, the principal is very nice and funny guy :). First impression always counts."

    "I am NOT very happy with most teachers, some students, and the staff at the office and school. I do not feel welcome in this school. My child is in 8th grade now. For the past "almost" 3 years....teachers have been using "sarcastic" or "belittle" tones of voices to my child. I thought this school believes parent involvement and I did make calls to the office about several incidents about teachers and/or students, they (teachers, coordinator, staff) don't even show concerns or discuss this issue professionally. This school have "You deserve a Put-Up!" pink slips and mix it up at Lunch Put-Up Slip. One student wrote and put it in the opening of my child's locker wishing her to kill herself. That's SICK!!! If my child shows this to the teachers or the staffs, I guarantee you they will NOT do anything about it. SAD!!!!"
