    "The teachers here work dutifully to aid children in their pursuits. Yes, the workload can be taxing, but the attitude of the staff and student body makes it worth it. There are a multitude of extracurricular activities and clubs that Lake Ridge encourages it students to partake in and helps them balance it with their homework. LRA is also home to The School of Fine Arts and The Institute of Scientific Research, both of which allow for students who wish to pursue careers in the arts and sciences, respectively, to begin honing in on their skills while still in high school. This school will open so many doors for you as an individual and a learner. No matter how many times I'm asked, I will always say Lake Ridge is the best high school I could have chosen."

    "The teachers at Lake Ridge and their teaching styles are very unique. Most English/Literature classes and history classes are all set up in a discussion-based format. All desks are faced inward toward each other, and everyone is encouraged to participate and engage in class-room discussion and activity. The teachers are always very knowledgeable on the subject they are teaching, and passionate as well. It is very easy to develop good relationships with these teachers and they genuinely get to know their students. They are always available and offer to help, and on the chance they are not at the time being, they will schedule a time to meet with you. The faculty at Lake Ridge not only act as a teacher for the student, but they also become mentors as well. They are more than happy to assist in anything possible inside and outside the class room."

    "LRA's teachers are by far its strongest asset. Not all teachers focus on providing a challenge to high-achieving students, but there are plenty of teachers who clearly pour their heart into their work, and all of them are skilled in their subject area. Dr. Mo is a gem."

    "Lake Ridge's small size is its biggest challenge when it comes to academics. When I got to college I encountered lots of students who were taking pretty much exclusively AP courses, or at least honors-level courses that catered to high-achieving students. Lake Ridge does its best, but doesn't quite have the staff to teach both rigorous courses that will challenge high-achievers as well as courses that will accommodate all students. With that said, there are definitely teachers who teach at a level equivalent to many of the college courses I've taken, and the educational quality it offers as an institution of its size is unparalleled."

    "LRA's small size is its greatest strength and weakness. The school has a tremendous sense of community; people are not just superficially friendly, but genuinely believe that Lake Ridge is a place where people should be inclusive and help one another. There's no sense of competition among the students. When one person accomplishes something, people are happy for them. But the size, atmosphere, and distance from a major city meant that few students were doing really impressive things in high school--when I got to college I realized how much more opportunity for individual excellence there is at, say, a coastal boarding school. But on the whole LRA is a great place to go to school; anything it may lack in academic excellence (and to be clear, the academics are still very rigorous) it more than makes up for in teaching a sense of community and values."
