    LWA is the BEST schools on Long Island. Children are engaged, staff is AMAZING and the curriculum is Phenomenal! The classroom sizes are perfect, and students and eager to learn. Children leave out of LWA prepared and college ready. The culture of the school is absolutely amazing, and everyone feels welcomed. LWA hoes from pre-k - 12th grade. If you started in the lower school or came in later on, the resources and support is unbelievable. LWA is the best school on Long Island, and I am a proud parent!
    LWA is an outstanding school with a wonderful sense of community! From Pre-School through 12th Grade, the faculty makes sure the individualized needs of each student are met. Students are challenged and cared for and encouraged to express themselves through their work both inside and out of the classroom. LWA does a wonderful job preparing students for college as well as life after college.
