East Lyme Middle School Reviews

The Kiva system (grouping about 80 students in a large space containing four classrooms, a common area, restrooms and lockers) is great for the younger students since this school has grades 5-8. By 8th grade, the students are more than ready to move on to high school. The principal has retired and the new principal who had been an assistant principal is promising. Previously, the principal did not support the sports at the middle school and not many were offered. Hopefully that is something that will change. This school uses PBIS which rewards students for behaviors that should be expected, and the students know that. Many after school clubs and students are able to create new clubs if they find a teacher to sponsor them. Not many socials/dances like other area middle schools. Good school overall.

Don't think the school prepares the children for High School. The Middle school does not give enough homework and when the kids get to High School they are overwhelmed!
I was always miserable or stressed. We have a extremely inconsistent work load, the school doesnt care about sexual assault or bullying, it’s all just really pathetic to be completely honest.
