    "This school is absolutely TERRIBLE. I'm just finishing up being a sophomore and the classes are easy, the teachers don't care and sometimes don't even understand what they are teaching. Some substitutes don't speak English. All focus is put on the average kids, so if you have an advanced child, keep them out of LPHS."

    "I'm a former student, in fact I transferred to another school system entirely because of how poorly this school conducted itself. The majority of my teachers had no interest in being there, they rarely taught, instead opting to chill out with the students. The school is overcrowded, so much they even have makeshift classrooms with walls made up of cubicle stalls. The administrations only focus is scoring high on standardized exams, I saw a number of instances where students didn't even do work yet they still received A's. In one class, students even terrorized the teacher, an elderly woman, to the point where they threw stuff at her. The schools' solution was to replace her with a fresh-out-of-college teacher, which was not even remotely better. Though I admit, he was a breath of fresh air compared to the numerous lax, unattentive, underpaid teachers the comprise the school staff."

    "I believe La Plata has the most compassionate staff. Mr Williams really helped me get my son back on track. The dedication of the entire staff was overwhelming and appreciative."

    "LaPlata is an excellent secondary school. Both my children graduated (2005, 2009) and were well prepared for the rigors of study for college life. La Plata teachers are fabulous; they not only offer a tough curriculum to prepare students for college, but teachers care about the students on a personal level, too. They are always willing to set-aside time to help students !"
