Although I originally didn’t consider this school as the first choice for my son, we were sold once we toured it and met the Principal, Ms Tudor. We love Lawton Chiles Middle.

I have lived blocks away from the school for almost 20 years. When my daughter finished her 5th grade at Spanish Lake Elementary, her next step was LCMS. While the school was already under a new principal, Mr. N. Izquierdo, I could not envision myself sending my little one there due to the mental pictures I had taken when I drove past it years ago. So, I made what I now consider "the biggest" academic mistake I have made with her. I enrolled her in the nearest charter school. "Such a prestigious school', there's a waiting list, and getting in is so hard, and it's not LCMS.' I thought.Now 2 years later, now my little one is entering 8th grade...I came knocking at the door at LCMS...because when my daughter asked to take on extra math classes at the charter school, this request was quickly denied, even though she had an A final grade and scored a 4 on the FSA. What school who truly cares about their students, turns away a student who is asking for more work? Maybe they are too worried about their own standing and pick and choose who they advance? Or maybe it's who you know? At the charter school, her schedule for 8th grade was not challenging. My child, much like yours, will be applying to get into their dream school soon. In my opinion, colleges like to see applicants who chose the challenging classes - not algebra 1 and physical science in 8th grade! I withdrew her, an A student, and the office staff did not even ask why. They don't care, they have a list of names waiting to take her space. Now at Lawton Chiles Middle School, my daughter is enrolled in 4 Cambridge courses, she's being challenged, her circle of friends are in higher classes, through no fault of hers, and I could not be more excited for her future. She even made a friend who is taking Pre Calculus! I wish she was taking Geometry and Biology, but I have the charter school to thank for that. I wrote this review to let parents in the area know that there is a wonderful middle school in our community. I encourage you to give it a chance. At LCMS, the principal not only wants the students to learn how to solve a problem, but what to do with the solution, how to put it to use. It seems to me that LCMS is not afraid to give their students the chance to soar.
This school is a joke. A lot of bullying even though the principal says they have a no bullying motto. My child was constantly picked on. Kids are constantly playing on their phones. I think what took the cake was when I got off the car one day to pick up my child and saw the assistant principle clearly flirting with one of the male students. I was in shock and disgusted and automatically removed my child from the school. I have seen way better schools than this. Don't be fooled.
