Principal's Message

Mark Ambruso, Principal

Mark Ambruso, Principal

Welcome to the world of Lyme-Old Lyme Middle School where we believe that the “Middle is the Best Place To Be.” We understand the importance of middle school experience as a bridge from nurturing elementary school and to the demanding high school experiences. The faculty and staff are professionally trained in helping to facilitate this transition. With our commitment to academic excellence, we are committed to challenging the young people each year as they grow into independent learners and responsible citizens. As the requirements for excellence becomes more challenging, we work with young people to acquire the essential skills and understandings that will allow them to succeed in high school and beyond.

Anyone who has experienced the trials and tribulations of the middle school experience will tell you that this is the best time for inventing oneself. Our role as school teachers and staff is to provide a safe and nurturing environment while middle schoolers try to define what kind of student they will be.

Our role is to enable the students to enjoy their uniqueness and build on the strengths they bring to our school. We work to eliminate all the barriers that cause the young people to doubt their abilities. This is all based on an understanding of respect and responsibility. We ask the young people to respect oneself, respect others and respect the facilities.

The combination of the efforts of parents and teachers creates the strong bond of a successful

school. We use the symbol of R2 where that means we believe in the notion of Respect and Responsibility. As you explore these web pages, we hope that you can feel the enthusiam we have created. We will continue to develop a challenging and engaging environment in which students and staff can work and learn. We are LOLMS where the middle is truly the best place to be.
