This school is great. There are a handful of kids who need to get kicked out, but other than the that the school is fine. There are many clubs you can join, teachers give you one-on-one attention. The students are always engaged and over 96% of them attend class each day. This past year 2014, over 90% ...  Read more

This school is absolutely great! I love going to school everyday. The teachers are extremely helpful and will give you one-on-one attention if you need it. Everyone knows everyone so it's very easy to make friends since it's a small school. The school offers many things as well as after school clubs ...  Read more

We, the teachers work hand in hand with students who need the extra boost or the motivation to finish a given task. Being a teacher is a hard job but working at LSSS makes it less of a job and more of a fun experience.

I graduated from here in 2009. Amazing teachers but horrible principal and assistant principal so therefore the school is a mess and teachers can not exercise there full potential. The principal has no interest in the student so the students are not interested In school. I had enough credits to graduate ...  Read more

I guess Im not the only one who feels this school is not providing the proper education to the students. Leadership in this school is lacking, and many of the students do what they want. There are no rules, students use cell phones in the school (look in Facebook), use foul language in front of teachers ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
