School Reviews

  • Recommended May 20, 2008 - This school is awesome! i am an eighth grader there and i would not dream of going anywhere else. All the teachers are just so nice and they always push you to do your best. It has great discipline and morals. the sports teams there are cool. they all seem to do so well, well in my opinion. so if you are moving to Prospect, you should definately go to LRMS. - Posted by Student/Alumni
