The school should work on diversity in terms of teachers. There are cliques with the students and teachers. You notice it immediately. Same kids will always be featured in photos, lead in plays, etc.. Your child will have to be strong to survive here. If you have an issue in the middle school, do

It saddens me to hear about unscrupulous board of directors and administrators at LWA. When I graduated from this school, it was not outstanding, but still a good school. That has changed a lot. Parents to whom I recommended LWA, complain about teacher and program cuts earlier this year without warning
... Read more to the best teachers. The hardest bit to hear is how the school jacked up fees on rising 11th and 12th graders with set price scholarship contracts for the 4 years. This effectively pushed these students out of LWA in the critical years before college, leaving them hanging, scrambling back to public school. The board knew this would happen. It didn't care. The school breached its contract and acted irresponsibly. I am surprised parents have not sued. They should. Its unscrupulous and immoral to offer scholarships and then act so underhandedly. Shame on you. Read less

My son goes to school at LWA and I like it very much. Individual needs are taken care of. The classes are small and the teachers are dedicated. It is expensive, but I feel worth it. There is always room for improvement, but I'd give the school an A-.

The academic and artistic environment is very good. My son entered LWA in middle school and had an extremely hard time fitting in. The middle school is very clickish and so are the parents. The high school students are less inclined to be clickish because that is when many new kids enter the school.
... Read more Overall, this is a great place for academics, sports and the arts. It's not the best for making friends until high school. Although the tuition is extremely expensive, it is worth it for all you get. I would advise against entering this school in the middle school years. Tip: If you must enter in middle school be sure to ask how many other new kids have enrolled. My son was the only new kid in his grade which was social suicide. Keep in mind this is a kid who usually makes friends easily. Read less
