    "I have to say that LFA has fully prepared me for college and even further educated me to be a better person. Love the close community that LFA has established. Most faculties live on campus with their family and kids; teachers not only teach us class but also act as roles of sports coach and dorm parents. That allows students and teachers have a lot more chances to communicate as well as build interpersonal relationships with faculties. Most teachers could be friends life-long. LFA also focuses on global learning and teaches students to open their mind to other cultures though annual multicultural fair and Head of School Symposium, targeting at various global themes or issues. The academic is challenging for different levels of students as well. In general, LFA not only cares about students' academic learning, but also living, health, safety and over-all personal development. LFA does a fantastic job in educating its students fitting in the 21st century. Yes It is a private school, and a lot of rich family kids attend the school, but they are all nice and humble."

    "Outstanding school with excellent leadership, teaching, and results. The college placements this year were as strong as any school in the country. As a parent I am very pleased with everything LFA does."

    "I think LFA is an excellent school, and it was a great experience for both our daughter and our family. Our daughter got into her 'first choice' college and is thriving. The campus is beautiful, and the opportunities were excellent. Students looking for athletic college scholarships may do better at a larger public high school, but students who would benefit from small classes and close teacher-student relations will excel here. We found that our daughters teachers always worked hard with her to help her succeed. Like any school, some teachers were better than others, but overall we felt it was a great experience. The zero tolerance policy is very rigid. Volunteer opportunities for parents are good."

    "Academics challenging to all students' capabilities. Teachers required to hold office hours for student questions. Small school environment allows more involvement in student leadership. All students required to participate at some level in sports (assistant to coach fulfills requirement in certain instances). Dedicated and involved art department head. School spirit great. Zero tolerance to drugs and alcohol. Our two children who graduated are at top schools. Overall fabulous experience for our children and family. Beautiful, private campus for boarders and commuters."

    "I can't put enough words down to say how great this school is. My child was partial financial aid. There was no discernible difference in the way she was treated versus full paying students. The teachers and staff ALL care about the PERSONAL development of the students and show it in everyway. If you want a school that feels more like a GOOD family, this is your school."
