    "We knew we won the lottery financially when our daughter got accepted to this school. We heard the school was amazing, but had no idea how amazing it really is. From the ridiculously dedicated teachers, active parents to really competent administration (this is important), we keep pinching ourselves. We also love how diverse the school is - not just racially but socio-economically as well. Living in LA, it's important to keep your kids grounded and this school does that. No frilly bells and whistles - just a great education. The best part? Our daughter loves it too! She used to cry every morning going to school and now she can't wait to go every morning. It's been a real game changer for us."

    "Larchmont Charter High School is a eclectic school with awesome teachers! We are a new 9th grade family that recently joined the high school. Our son came from a private, rigorous middle school, but has been more inspired and motivated by the teachers he has at LCHS. His Bio teacher is so organized and detailed with college-level curriculum, labs, and lessons. His Span. 1 teacher is so diverse and dynamic and the first Spanish teacher that makes him want to speak and learn the culture. He is having a blast with his Eng 9 and Geo teachers that constantly keep the class engaging with lectures, socratic seminars, portfolios, detailed reading, writing, oral presentations and innovative projects, along with traditional tests. The quality of his education is comparable or exceeds the pedagogy that some of his friends are getting who go to private schools like Loyola, Notre Dame, Campbell Hall, etc. He reads the same books and learns about the same content. The rotating block schedule and later start time is the perfect fit for us.I think all this school needs now is more parents volunteering (fingerprinting is common now in private and public schools for volunteers).LCHS is growing gem."

    "This review is for Lafayette Middle/High School. Greatly disappointed, endless problems. We started at the elementary level which was wonderful. In two years we have had two Principles. Teachers come in go in bundles. Administration is incompetent and behave like children. Direction change constantly, parents are mistreated, mocked and gossiped if they don't play along. Parents are required fingerprinting in order to help (Not LAUSD Mandate). Minimal computer lab, music, and art. Homework site is ridiculous, many teachers do not post. LCS has fallen, curriculum is basic, not what it once was. Not recommended, many children will suffer for it. Any school will be better, do NOT BE FOOLED."

    "We were an "original family" at LCS and ended up leaving when my son hit middle school. Be very careful about this school for the upper grades. Lovely for K-5 but falls off dramatically after that. Classrooms are chaos, weird curriculum and inexperienced teachers with a few exceptions. Students don't learn basics well and LCS in general doesn't do well with parents who question their academics. Gotta drink the kool ade or you'll be tagged....if your child is bright, much better options for middle school and high school. But fabulous school for younger students."
