About

LaFayette Middle School (LMS) is the largest middle school in Walker County. We teach grades 6th-8th. We are a Title I School. Our staff is committed to teaching our future leaders to Ensure All Students Graduate: Ready for College, Ready for Work and Ready for Life. Our academic structure includes two grade level teams per grade. Each team has an ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies teacher. Our school schedule each day consists of all four academic classes and one connection class. Our classes are sixty-five-minutes long. We also provide an ELT (Extended Learning Time) each day so students can receive remediation or enrichments as needed. LMS also strives to meet the needs of all students. We are the only middle school to offer the opportunity for students to earn high school credit in up to five classes: Spanish, Algebra I, Physical Science, Computer Science, and Ag.  Our staff directory on the LMS webpage is linked to individual teacher’s lesson plans or their Google Classroom.

LMS has received a Five Star Climate Rating from the Georgia Department of Education the last three consecutive years.  We are a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) school. This program encourages our students to make decisions that are positive and that demonstrates Rambler PRIDE! Title 1 funding has helped fund interactive touch screen panels in all classrooms, Chromebooks, and various software programs to improve student engagement and achievement.  Students use Reading Plus software on a weekly basis school-wide and in their Language Arts classes to improve their reading fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.  Improving these skills is a main focus at LMS.

LMS was selected by the county to pilot a new online program.  Classcraft will be used on a daily basis to track positive behaviors, and to help keep students engaged in their academics.  In addition LMS has a Renaissance Program to reward students for their academic achievement, attendance and behavior.
