    "My son attended LISG and loved it. This school is NOT for every child. It is only for gifted children who love to be challenged. Curriculum in most grades is about 2 grade levels above good public schools like Cold Spring Harbor or Jericho. By 9th grade my son had completed most of the course work requirements of NYS to graduate from high school. He took AP and college level courses after leaving LISG. Like most of his class mates from LISG, my son got admission in three of the top IVY Leagues. My son played soccer, tennis, baseball and lacrosse outside of the school. He was chosen in the tennis team of the high school after leaving LISG."

    "LISG is an excellent school for bright kids.. Class size is very small. Most students go on to Ivy League Colleges."

    "I am a former student of LISG and I found it to be a very sterile and unwelcoming environment in which to learn. I was one of the lucky few who adjusted well to high school afterward but I know many who didn't. I think this has to do greatly with the fact that they do not promote socializing, have few clubs, and have absolutely no sports. They are very rigid in their ways and do not take any constructive criticism to heart no matter how many people say the same exact things about this school. Many graduates go on to do great things (myself included) but this is more because we all have high IQ's and were good students to begin with. I do not believe that these successes have as much to do with the school as one might think. I would never send any of my own children here and I would suggest that people think long and hard before they place their child into this program. It is a good concept that is poorly executed."

    "This school was not the right choice for my gifted daughter. She learned differently from the way that LISG teaches. This gave way to many obstacles. The principal refuses to compromise. There are few extra cirriculars, math and science are the only subject accented, and the school is very rigid. The school does not allocate any special needs what so ever."

    "A one of a kind school in the New York Metropolitan area! We moved to Long Island for this school. We commuted from the North Bronx for six months before moving our family to Huntington for this school. Prior to that we searched and visited schools in Connecticut, Westchester, Jersey and NYC. My 2 children have attended LISG for 4 years now and love it!! Classes are capped at 16. The teachers are fabulous. Families are very involved. Though the school cannot offer all of the amenities that the public schools do (it is comparitively very inexpensive for private education), they do a remarkable job with the resources they have in music, art, gym, computers and technology, foreign language, etc and is not lackning in any way. Gifted children are appropriately challenged in a way not offered ANYWHERE else. They are all working above grade level and are even more specifically re-grouped in reading and math to best suit their needs and ability. And though parent access to the building is limited, (contrary to negative reviews below) many parents who volunteer or are involved in any activity during school hours have the pleasure of observing children during their school day."
