<p>Trickum Middle School, located on Killian Hill Road just west of Arcado Road has been part of Lilburn for more than 30 years.</p> <p>The school, which has been on Killian Hill since 2006, originally opened in 1975 on Cole Road and was for most of those years part of a school complex that included Parkview High School and Camp Creek Elementary School. The need for additional space for Parkview and Trickum necessitated the move.</p> <p>It is the only middle school in the Parkview High Cluster.</p> <p>Kay Sands, a Lilburn resident since 1985 and whose three sons went through the Parkview Cluster, has been Trickum's principal since 2008.</p> <p>The school has been a longtime standout in academic and extracurricular achievement.</p> <p>Trickum consistently scores better than county averages in standardized testing. According to Georgia Department of Education statistics, 97 percent of the student body met or exceeded Reading/Language Arts standards, 93 percent in Math in 2010. Both results were about one-percentage better than the previous school year.</p> <p>More than half (51.1 percent) of the students tested exceed the standards in Reading/Language Arts.</p> <p>Trickum students have placed well in a variety of extracurricular competitions at the county, region and state levels -- from band to Literature to Math and Science. Trickum's 2009 Grand Prize win at the State Science Fair is just one example.</p> <p>The Trickum name originates comes from a former country store (Trickum Store) in the Mountain Park area which had the reputation for "tricks" while bartering with customers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
