LWHS couldn't do a better job of preparing young people for college. From the academic curriculum, to the shops, to the personalized college counseling it is all there.

Lick is a great school. The head master is a visionary, yet a concerned and compassionate leader. The shops are great along with classes such as architecture, which most high schools may not have. My one complaint, the English department is very weak! Few good teachers and an especially lousy curriculum ...  Read more

This school is very challenging but very worth it because we have an amazing campus and great opportunities in our shops that no other schools really offer.

With top-level academic programs, teachers, and extracurricular options, LWHS is worth every cent, and has a long-standing tradition of providing financial aid to a large % of its students. I graduated in '99, and in the past five years, Lick has improved its programs and services even more. It is very ...  Read more
