LASA is a great school with teachers that are qualified to teach their subjects and love to teach it. Students are supportive of each other and there are many tutoring services to help those who need it. College is a very stressful time for juniors and seniors, but the college advising at LASA is reassuring in the long process. There are downsides like resources at LASA due to funding and the old building, but donations are always welcomed! Overall, LASA allows students to get a well-rounded education with the experience of a normal high school.
Review Liberal Arts & Science Academy
I have so enjoyed my time at LASA so far. The educatio nand academics offered are stellar, as well as the school environment and teacher-student relationship. Clubs and communities are very welcoming and close-knit, and I wouldn't want to go to school anywhere else!
I am now a senior at LASA, and my overall experience has been very positive, but there are plenty of aspects that need attention. The academics in the classroom is phenomenal, it is just the out-of-the-classroom things which need help. There is already traction at the city level to move locations, but in general the school is very short on funding, particularly for stuff like maintaining the physical building and making repairs. Cafeteria food is inedible- would not recommend.
