    "Apply to this school, ONLY if you want to study in IB. As a student who' completed all 4 years of IB, I can say that this was the most useful learning experience of my life -- made college a piece of cake. Honestly, a lot of knowledge I've acquired in IB was more useful and insightful than in college. Although teachers vary in their skills, overall majority of them were great to excellent. I would never send my kid to LP to be in regular or even honors classes. From my years at LP, it seemed like a lot of troubled kids, were in those classes, and I personally was threatened to be stabbed for no apparent reason. IB program really is segregated, but that's what I liked about it - that there was no need to interact with delinquent students who often came from ghetto projects and had entirely different mentality. The coursework is challenging but doable and it's not as bad as some people make it out to be. You don't have to give up on social life. Quite frankly, I procrastinated a lot and did everything last minute and I graduated with good grades. If you take regular classes you'll have a more difficult time in college. IB enables you to have easier life after high school."

    "I graduated in 93 and my sister graduated in 97...we LOVED this school, the theater program and honors classes. It is an inner city school that faces the challenges specific to the city itself, but has always sought diversity and teachers that care."

    "Honestly as a student i have to agree that a lot of people are very poorly behaved, but to act as if the issues reported to the dean or teachers are ignored is bogus. Teachers have control but do take a lot of time out of their day telling kids to knock it off. it is easy to find friends at Lp so don't try and say you have a kid who has a tough time, he probably is too busy complaining about that instead of actually talking to people. LP is a great school and you can be broke or rich, you still make friends. Send your kid here this school is really great."

    "In reference to most recent review posted on August 4, 2012, thank you for that feedback. I have officially chosen LP as the school of choice for my son who will be starting next month. I'm the parent who posted a review on March 22, 2012 when I was close to making a decision. I agree with you in regards to what can be controlled by the student and what cannot and it seems that most of what you mentioned can be determined on the student and how they approach things and not rely or blame others for their successes. Plus as a parent I'll be VERY involved and they will know who I am in that school because I will be proactive in school visits with teachers, counselors and whomever else is involved in teachings of my son. I'm not saying that other parents weren't I'm just stating what I will be doing and I'll be the judge as to how the school really is in my eyes. If there's something I do not like I will address and make sure something is done otherwise I will report it to higher up who ever that may be if necessary. Again thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it, it has helped contribute to my decision tremendously. Because I've heard great things from others as well."
