11 Parent Reviews for East Lyme Middle School

My 6th grader (new student) started apprehensive but in a week, he has flourished to be open, positive and loving towards his school. The leadership makes it a priority to be involved with the students, which shows me their dedication. The encouragement my student gets to aim high is subtle but strong ...  Read more

East Lyme middle school is one of the best schools for good education. The teachers are very welcoming, friendly and show interest on students inquisitiveness.

East Lyme Middle School is an above average school. They have won many awards including CAS Middle School of the Year in 2012. ELMS uses a unique Kiva system which has pros and cons. It also helps by making the school of 900 students feel slightly smaller which is good for newcomers. ELMS serves grades ...  Read more

This school is the best one I've attended so far. I love the Kiva structure and I think most teachers are spectacular. However, I think there should be more options for children who are able to go to a more advanced class, as I find that many kids (including myself) are often bored. They do a great job ...  Read more

Having two of my children having attended(ing) the Middle School, I'd have to say, it does not meet their needs. There is a dire need to look at the curriculum and overall school environment. The principal is not particularly 'present'. Both my children have stated boredom. The homework situation needs ...  Read more

The new 'Middle School concept' of the East Lyme Middle School does not meet the needs of 5th graders (academically,socially, emotionally,or developmentally). The overall needs and capabilities of the child must addressed in order to teach and educate effectively.

I think ELMS is a safe place to be. My teachers are let back and make learning fun because of the way that they teach. However if you goof off they will become strict. I am also a straight A student accept for B+ in L.A. I think the school isn't the best but I'd rather be here than somewhere else.
