Mary Lyon School turned me into the person I am today. I attended this school 4th-8th grade, and received more or less a good education. This school catered me with an advanced curriculum in middle school. Due to the fact that I was able to take Algebra as an 8th grader, this benefitted me well in high school, when as a freshman I was able to take H Geometry. My favorite teacher in the building is Mrs. Falkowska. Due to her teaching, I am one of the best writer's in my Sophomore class. I am honored to have been taught by such a brilliant mind. My journey in this school was fun and joyful, and helped be the intelligent individual I am today.

It is disgusting in the bathrooms and people (students) right on the walls with SHARPIE. The teachers are the best they can be. Not all the students are like this but most of them.
This school, among many other things, really encouraged the values of the community and it's members. The fact that it was a neighborhood school made it possible for everyone there to grow and learn together and the teachers made an honest effort to help those who needed it.
