Lost Mountain Middle School Reviews

First the bad - the administration seems to go out of their way to hurt the students. They do not stop bullying - ever. Their actions greatly encourage it. They intimidate students reporting abuse and make insane excuses for bullies. The VERY occasional horrible teacher, complained about by large numbers of parents, is equally ignored and allowed to continue.

Now the good - the teachers are generally fantastic. They go out of their way to help the students with school work and seem to love what they do. It's a shame they can't get a grasp on the bullying because the administration will never support anyone but the bully or misbehaving kid. The music program is top-notch. There is a high level of parent involvement in the school. Both teacher and parent seem to work together to make the school a good choice despite the administration.

Word of advice - teach your child to fight back or go straight to police if it's severe enough. He or she may be suspended, but the bullies will eventually go away.

Most of the teachers are really great! Hope your child gets them. Any problems with teachers and the administration will NOT help you.
Bullies run rampant with little to no consequence. Students are intimidated by administration into signing "updated" versions of incident reports (i.e. VP rewrites student's report to downplay bullying as an "accident" and intimidates student to sign the new version) Parents and students are told absolutely insane excuses for bullying or misbehavior. (i.e. a 12 year old doesn't know repeatedly punching another student in the head is wrong. A student playing a "game" (principal's word, not mine) explicitly meant to hurt another student didn't know it would hurt the other student) Students know they will not be protected from bullies. One year at least 3 students at different times were suspended for finally fighting back against the same bully. I've witnessed a girl break into tears just because this same bully walked into a room. When I suggested she go to the administration she cried harder because she already went and nothing happens.

While I don't fear for my child's life, I do know he and any other student could be hurt by other students any day with little to no consequence. I no longer go to administration with major issues. From now on, I will go straight to the police. The few security cameras they have don't seem to work and/or are not reviewed.

The school nurse and armed policeman are very caring towards students.
