Read what parents are saying about Langford Middle School
I am currently in the 9th grade and I'm so happy I left. Fights would constantly break out, people would throw paper balls at teachers, and not to mention the fact that bullying was an ongoing thing, and nothing was done about it. And can we just talk about the staff, really quick? They see what is happening, but they do nothing except for call the principal or assistant principal to the classroom and put them in check. And just to be clear, you may think that they will act better around substitutes since they give reports to teachers and things like that, but it's worse than the teacher being present. It gets so bad that students try to gang up on the sub and fight them and argue back to them using vulgar words. All in all, this school is the WORST place to send your child.

I was a student at Langford middle school from my 6th to 8th grade year, it was a good school when I went there (2009-2012) I can never recall Langford being so bad at all, the kids did crazy things when I went there but the teachers, faculty and staff always did their best, no school is perfect and all of them have some issues but its up to the students to do what they are there to do, which is to get an education and if you are an adult that can't handle crazy kids then don't teach, all students are not the same , some are bad but Langford was not that bad, it prepared me for highschool, I'm an upcoming senior now and in the top 3 of my graduating class (2016) -Malaysia gregory

Firstly, I am a student who had gone to Langford and from first hand experience it is the worst and most down right awful place you could ever send a child willing to learn. I'm currently a senior in high school at a school in Myrtle Beach and leaving that school is the best decision I've ever made regarding my education. There is absolutely ZERO respect in those classrooms from both the teachers and students. There are multiple fights that break out each weak, there's an incredible amount of racism, and the sanitation of the school is fair to none. During my time there I was in the 8th grade and completely failed due to the hectic environment of the classrooms. I was also diagnosed with depression and anxiety shortly after leaving the school. I did not have one teacher that was actually excited about teaching their students. Bottom line, if you want your child to succeed with their education do NOT send them to Langford. It is a downright awful school and I have so much sympathy for the students that actually want to learn that can't.

If parents could secretly see what their children do at this school, they would be shocked and appalled. The majority of them make it very difficult for the very few that want to learn. I taught at this school one day and I will never go back. Walking into the school that morning, I heard very polite students and teachers greeting each other for the day. I was very impressed. Once I passed the office area, the atmosphere totally changed. It was dark and gloomy. My students were very disrespectful, rude and downright uncontrollable. They tested me every second of the day. They fought with each other and one couple constantly tried to make out in the corner. They ignored me, mocked me and had no respect for authority whatsoever. They even mocked their own African American history lesson. It was disheartening to me to see what our teens have become. I felt so sad for the one or two students that sat there quietly, trying their best to listen and learn. They never spoke a word, except at the end of the class- to compliment me, which I was most appreciative. This school needs cameras in the classroom so administrators and parents can see what is going on behind the doors. SAD.

In years past, it is my opinion that most of this feedback was true. I believe there was a lack of leadership and no backing for the teachers who do/did care. Fortunately, this is no longer the Langford Middle of today. Since Ms. Vicki Reese took her position as Principal, the school is transitioning as an excellent middle school for Richmond County. It has gained the accreditation of an International Baccalaureate school which is no small accomplishment. My daughter LOVES her teachers and actually doesn't want to miss school because the teachers engage with the students on an individual level. Their curriculum night for parents to participate with their children also allows for open dialogue between teachers & parents. Encouraging more parent involvement. The grade might be a 3 for the website, but I do not feel that is a fair assessment as there is no room for students with special needs who are tested the same as Advanced students. There needs to be a better grading scale of diversity for all different learning levels. Thank you teachers of Langford and Principal Reese for all of your hard work. Your hard work is not going unnoticed!!!
