Open Quote This is a great school, with great staff and principal. School Grades the State of FL gives out, does not give this school justice. State Grades are based on 1 day out of the whole school year. LMS is doing their best with what they are given. This is an "A" school, by far! More Parent Involvement is needed to make LMS more successful! Close Quote

Open Quote Great staff and teachers! Principal, staff and teachers really cares about their students. State grade is based on one day results, not school year as a whole and does not reflect teacher dedication. State School grades are not accurate, look into this school for yourself. This is a smaller size school, so it is more homely and parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged. LMS have helped my student excel and graduate out from having an IEP and now has the skills to be very successful in school. Close Quote

Open Quote I enrolled my daughter in Lockhart Middle after a very bad experience with her attending Robinswood Middle and I was very impressed with the staff I met in the main and Attendance offices. I also felt safe and could breathe easily while I watched the students change classes and interact with each other while I waited in the office lobby. It was a very comfortable, yet disciplined, atmosphere and I could tell the students liked their school. I've done research and have asked many questions about this school's resources, rankings, activities, teachers, etc. and cannot find a negative in any area; I toured the library, cafeteria and hallways (on my own) and it was kept clean and equipped with the latest of everything - computers, books. My daughter is very happy there - she previously attended Lake Sybelia, which is where most of Lockhart's 6th graders graduate to, and it goes without saying that Lockhart is one of Orange County's premier schools - very caring staff and teachers are outstanding! I almost wished my daughter could have stayed there one more year! But it's important that ALL parents take the time to inspect their child's school, ask questions and stay informed. Instead of just sending them to the bus stop, stop by unexpectedly and observe. Our children depend on us to make sure they are safe, protected and are getting the best education; not only that, but we are leaving them in the care of adults who are not related to them but are like interim parents. So I can honestly I am very happy with Lockhart and the education my child is receiving there. I've also had conversations via phone and email with several of her teachers and I am still impressed! There's nothing better than knowing there are teachers who genuinely care about your child's success. I love Lockhart. Close Quote

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
