That is a pretty awesome feeling for a kid to have! Many activities are available for the kids throughout the year.

My child attended LFS for 4 years. We were very pleased with the experience for the first year. After that, I do not feel that my child got the instruction or attention that was needed. The teachers were very strict and seemed to care more about students conforming to an ideal model than about developing
