School Reviews

  • Recommended October 21, 2013 - My son attended CLMI for 6 years, 7-12 grade, graduating class of 1994 and it''s the best thing I ever did. He was not doing well in public school and CLMI taught him to take responsibiltiy for his actions among other things. He rose in the ranks at school and has made him the man he is today. He has chosen his career in the United States Coast Guard and CLMI helped him in that decision. I am very proud of him and have never regretted my decision. - Posted by Parent
