Amazing arts and academics! I am an 8th grader taking algebra and living environment regents classes. I am also in choir 4 days a weeks and in the school musical, as well as 8th grade Vice President. My four years here have been amazing and I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested in a creative unique school full of the nicest people and teachers who will change your lives. Also an academic challenge. If I had the power I would declare Louis Armstrong Middle School the most artistic middle school. And in my four years here I have never seen any form of bullying or exclusion. I you come to this school, be prepared for the best middle school experience a kid could hope for.

I will be a senior in this school this September. I have been here since the fifth grade and I couldn’t have asked for more from a middle school. The opportunities here are unlike any other. The teaching styles at this school are so unique and teachers make their goal to succeed with you but to make the journey into your success a joyous experience. I have been able to challenge myself in various ways at this and I can’t thank them enough for the successful path that they have lead me into! The people at this school will forever hold a special spot in my heart and and I couldn’t have imagined anything being different.
I went to Louis Armstrong a few years ago. I have many fond memories about this place. The musical education is amazing and many of my friends go to prestigious musical high school. However, in aspects other than music, the school's education on stem is found lacking.
