It is a great school with plenty of good education and great teachers! I enjoy Lancaster Mennonite very much and I hope every student that goes there will too!

My children received an excellent education in a caring Christian environment. Both my daughters met their eventual spouses at Lancaster Mennonite, good guys who shared their values. Both girls still have close contacts with their high school friends, showing that, at LMS, friendships are lasting because they are based on common values. This is a progressive Mennonite school -- NOT your "horse and buggy" Mennonites -- so it has a global perspective and values and respects people from all backgrounds who want a great education in a great environment.

great school with a lot of very good people in it. good environment to be a part of. Although there are misconceptions about mennonite schools, this school does not have amish teachers, students are not required to wear coverings or skirts, and there are plenty of women in leadership roles.
