    "I attended this school for one year, and I have to say that it is probably one of the worst schools in the city of chicago, regardless of what the statistics say. All classes except for the IB program are not at all rigorous (I was in the Double Honors program) and it was extremely easy. I faced a greater challenge with my work in middle school. Regular classes are a complete joke. Even if you are in the IB program, you still have to deal with the regulars and honors students in the hallways, gym classes and lunch. Teachers are totally underqualified ( I had maybe 1 good teacher), staff is extremely rude, they care more about security then your actual education. The school is extremely dirty, I have never seen a janitor there once in the whole year. I have seen dirt and garbage remain on the floor of some of my classroom for up to a week. Sport s teams are horrible, there is absolutely no school spirit, and i would say that more than half of the students dont care about their future and bring students who do down. Office is so disorganized as well. If you are considering going to this school, I would strongly reccomend you find another choice. Hands down, worst school ever."

    "I have a freshman in Performing Arts. He has had a great year and great teachers. He is getting A's and B's and is not being bullied. Being smart and studying hold prestige instead of shame. I am nervous about the wall to wall IB, bue we will give it a try and see how it goes."

    "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."
