Most of the complaints that I have heard from students through the years is that this school is too hard. However, it is challenging for a reason. It is a college prep school, and the challenging environment shows both through the hallways as well as with the test scores. The different classes that we ...  Read more

This school has gone downhill. When my son went just three years ago, the focus was on academics challenging classes with a strong bent on independent thinking. My younger daughter is now there, and the school is starting a visible descent into chaos. There are still great teachers and some good classes, ...  Read more

I am a senior who has really enjoyed the academics, friends and unique experiences offered at LASA. However the previous review about challenges involving college admissions is true. If you work hard you will get into the college of your dreams from LASA, and be incredibly well prepared for it. However ...  Read more

The curriculum and teachers are amazing. My student loves LASA, where the focus is on academics, not frivolity and drama. It's cool to be super smart here, but it is also a lot of hard work and very competitive. Like the previous poster said, the gpa's here have to be astronomically high in order to ...  Read more

I'm about to start my second year here at LASA. It's a good school, with nice people. My only problem is my commute. Each day I spend a little over 4 hours (total) driving to and from school. I rarely get enough sleep, especially when the teachers seem to accidentally pile on a bunch of projects at the ...  Read more

I have attended LASA for two years, and finally for 2010-2011 year I'm leaving. This school is average there is nothing extraordinary about it. The very competitive academic environment makes you feel like a number and unimportant, and not a valued student.. The majority of the teachers are average, ...  Read more

LASA is a great school if it's a good fit, but it's not for everybody. My freshman is transferring next year because he doesn't like the competitive environment / is interested in a more laid back atmosphere, thinks the hour-long commute isn't worth it & is somewhat burned out on magnet school after ...  Read more
