LACES is a school where they do not serve needs of the average student . The school is 6-12 grades and it caters to the AP high school students. My mom thought this school was going to be so wonderful. It is for some. I am more laid back and while I get my work done, I also make sure I enjoy life-not trying to stress by takkmg 4 AP classes in one school year. My mother was my advocate and finally the school gave me the respect I deserved-and me and my friends take great pride in our school and we have built amamzing relationships! I look forward to LACES treating all students and families equal!

I absolutely love LACES and I’m so happy that I got the chance to come here. This school is so diverse and it’s amazing to see so many ethnicities around school and be able to learn about their culture. There is never a dull moment at LACES, everyone at this school is always involved in something. Administration and faculty here is amazing. They provide you with all the information you need and make sure that you do your best possible. LACES is flooded with supportive energy. Counselors will do anything in their ability to help you. Everybody at LACES wants the best for you. They want you to succeed in life no matter what. LACES believes everyone has a chance of a successful future no matter what.
If you’re looking for a school that will challenge you academically, but still includes sports and art, then this is the school for you! LACES is a very good school that is sure to fit any one with a determination to learn. My only critisim is that, even though LACES is a college preparatory school, more can be done to inform the students on the college application process.
