Welcome to Luther Burbank Middle School

We are a successful school because of the partnership that exists among staff, students and parents. Our staff works tirelessly to improve upon instruction, assessment and student achievement. Our students are cooperative, respectful and hard-working, and demonstrate good progress year after year. Our parents are involved, generous and supportive. It is a pleasure and honor to be principal of such a fine school.        ~ Patrick Perkins, Principal

Principal's Message

As you are probably aware, I will be retiring this summer and my last official work day will be August 31, 2015.  Although I'm excited about my decision to leave the district, it's a bit of a struggle too, since I have considered the middle school a second home for more than three decades. During my tenure as a teacher and administrator, I have felt genuine support from the Lancaster community. I truly appreciate that I've had the privilege of working in such a fine town and wonderful school district.

Laura Friend, the next principal of Luther Burbank Middle School, will assume full responsibilities later this summer.  After having a successful career as a teacher, curriculum leader, and most recently, the assistant principal for Mary Rowlandson Elementary school, I can say with the utmost confidence that Laura Friend will be nothing short of an outstanding principal.  With Laura's energy, enthusiasm, and expertise as an educator, the future looks very bright for Luther Burbank Middle School.

In closing, I would like to say thank you students, parents, staff, and community members for the kindness, generosity, patience and support that I have received from you throughout my career.
