LTMS was built in 1909. It was designed to serve as a high school, but in 1928 it became a junior high. It was replaced in the mid-1960s with a new facility and was renovated in 2003.

We focus on traditional values, high educational expectations and strict discipline. Our enriched, structured curriculum develops intellectual skills and concepts for strong academic achievement.

To enter LTMS, a student should either live in the assigned attendance area or inquire through the application process. To qualify, he must be reading on grade level and have a "C" average or better in all core content classes. Once the Magnet School Committee has determined eligibility, the students will be placed in the lottery pool.

What makes our school special

Our school has a rich tradition of excellence in chess, math and other academic competitions, and our band and orchestra consistently receive distinguished ratings. LTMS also offers a rich variety of world language courses including Latin, Spanish, French and Chinese.

Across the board, we actively teach our PROWL guidelines for success:
