Lawrence West Junior HI School Reviews
This is now a middle school- review for 6th grade only
All the grade schools in Lawrence are K-5 and the middle schools are 6-8, with high school starting in 9th grade.
My son is having a good experience and the teachers are good overall, some better than others- for instance, the Social Studies teacher who declared the bible to be superior to other religious texts because it is based on true facts(!). That aside, the staff and teachers just seem fairly nice and fair to the kids.
However, I read this article and am a little concerned that they are not handling bullying incidents effectively in the higher grades. I hope other parents with problems and good experiences too will chime in. http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2014/feb/23/how-safe-your-school-bullying-and-school-violence-/?login=
