School Reviews

  • Recommended November 28, 2013 - My son is at Lawrence and we couldn''t be happier. Very supportive environment, caring teachers and accepting student body. My son is not involved in sports at all, is a member of the computer club but has still found friends and acceptance at this school. Very helpful advisors and rigorous academic program. - Posted by Parent
