    "Despite having an excellent curriculum and a mostly wonderful faculty, the size of the school is a major issue. 1800 students crammed into an outdated architectural model makes for a stampede atmosphere during the class changes and does not help the psychological state of the students as it contributes to feelings of anxiety. With all the money in the school district I would think that in the 30 years I have known this school that they would have expanded enough to correct this problem, but sadly, no."

    "LCBMS is too big for an enrollment of 1800 kids...they need a mixture of different races and more minority teachers...the last time I checked they had no minority teachers...NAACP should look into this...my kids were always harass but they did nothing but whenever there is a problem they always target the minority student...recently my son was questioned and he asked to speak with his parents and they refused to let him and confiscated his phone..since this superintendent took over this school is on a steady decline....would not recommend sending your kids here"

    "Recently got a long term suspension overturned after reaching out to some gov't organizations to look into this school. I will make it short but I can write a book about this school about their mistreatment of non-white students, working on creating a website to show all these documents & secret recorded conversations with school staff. My son was always academically a 90 student but with this ridiculous long suspension we were forced to send him to a private school, he was heart broken at 1st about losing his friends but he was able to adapt and is doing great, with advise from some senators we are in the process of getting back this tuition. This school is so bad they contact my son's school without my consent and told them my son was a really bad student after the princpal of his new school contacted me and I informed her I needed this in writing. I am sorry but this principal, counselor, registrant and superintendent must go."

    "I must disagree with a lot of the negative comments posted recently about LCBMS. In my son's 3 years at this school, I have found the administration, staff and teachers to be extremely professional and caring. The teachers are well-qualified and go above and beyond to ensure that students succeed-offering before and after school help if needed. Everyone is easy to contact and responds very quickly. Both teachers and administrators have been very flexible and receptive to thinking 'outside the box'."

    "This school should be look into, they are psychologically damaging innocent kids, they suspend kids over little things. The school have an enrollment of 1600 which is too much for 1 school, an interim principal who can't deal with little issues so suspends a kid for anything. I recently reached out to some senators, US Dept of Education and ACLU to look into their policies and procedures because its a waste that residents in Yorktown, Peekskill and Cortlandt Manor have to pay high taxes and send their kids to private schools."
