    Welcome to the school where understanding hearts and positive attitudes thrive. Every day, students demonstrate understanding hearts as they help each other on projects and support each other through difficult times. Teachers exemplify understanding hearts by showing compassion and concern for every student by offering after school tutoring sessions. Student athletes display positive attitudes as they work hard on the field and on the court to represent Lugoff-Elgin Middle School with pride. Teachers express positive attitudes as they work with colleagues to develop interdisciplinary units and incorporate a variety of instructional strategies into their lessons. Community members and parents represent understanding hearts and positive attitudes by attending school sponsored activities and athletic events. Every stakeholder is an important member of the learning community at LEMS. Thank you for the many displays of understanding hearts and positive attitudes that make LEMS a great school.
