    "I have a Sophmore at LHS. She got in under IB and will go for the IB Diploma. Many have commented on the IB program. It is outstanding with an amzing 95+ track record. But, what is important here is the amount of options a student has when attending LHS. My daughter spent a better part of two weeks, talking with counslers, and administrators about her options if she did not stay with IB. The administration embraced her inquiries and presented both sides fairly. They encouraged her to speak to other students and to weight the pros and cons. She received a tremendous amount of support as she struggled with one of many decisions that will impact her future. This school is about, support, and challenge and most importantly growth. My 15 year old daughter has grown and matured tremendously since she entered the West doors of LHS. As a parent we looked long and hard before making a decision about the school she should attend. We love being a part of this community and all that it has to offer."

    "We just transferred to LHS. I am glad, but sorry to hear that I am not the only parent having issues with the administration. The assistant principals especially. The principal told my advocate he does not want to be involved with trivla matters. My student has also told me this principal, who won an award as principal of the, does not like to greet students in the hall when he passes then,nor does he want to get to know them. How did he get this award? Jeffco school system really needs some help."

    "I am personally very dissappointed with the assistant Principle Anna Allen. Her lack of knowledge or even caring about what is going on out side of the school is appauling. Her lack of concern or concideration is appauling. She should be in another organization, not working with kids that may not have the ideal situation at home. She needs reeducated as well as a taste of her own mediciine. Her nose may not be so high up in the air if she took some time to concider others. Maybe she can use a lesson or two in humility, humanity or how about just empathy. How does a person get to be in a role that she is in with a lack of heart. How does she look at her self in the mirror every morning? Or does she?"

    "Very disappointed with the quality of staffs, the lack of help for my struggling child and the lack of support as we transferred to the Denver area from out-of-state. I am an educator, with 8 years of experience and believe this school is solely for the well-healed kid who is intrinsically motivated. Submitted by a parent"

    "After spending 6 semester at LHS I would have to say the the kids are smart,the teachers are good but the administrators are really terrible. If you parents don't have strong voices, I suggest a different school"
