School Reviews

5  
As a two-mom, biracial household, we feel lucky that we found LFS, a school that respects and celebrates diversity. We appreciate that the teachers at LFS care about my our child's needs--both academically and socially. We love the fact that our child has the opportunity to attend a school that values the ideals of gentle teaching; a place where my child feels nurtured, respected, secure, seen, and heard. Our daughter, currently in Pre-K, comes home so excited to teach us everything that she has learned. In short, the school has been a great academic, social, and financial fit for our household.
