Saranac Lake Middle School Reviews

1 review
I would be very hesitant to say that I enjoyed my time at SLMS. Eighth grade was "high school prep" with as much homework as a HS sophomore, while freshman year of HS was like going back to 6th grade. Many unnecessary rules and babying by the administration. Dean of students is not a nice guy, also district athletic director. He plays favorites with sports teams. The minority of teachers were good here, going to SLHS was a nice step up. Also SLMS had an asbestos scare recently-- I went here for 3 years and there was a chance that I was breathing in a chemical that could give me lung cancer. Sounds real safe.
