Sophomore: What I enjoy about Lakes International Language Academy (LILA) is the connection us students make not only with our peers, but with the staff as well. I have become friends with my teachers who have all made a special impact on not only my education, but my work ethic and personality. I never see anybody smoking, drinking, or doing drugs, which are current major problems, and have been for a long time. The teachers at LILA keep us students interested. Something my school needs to work on is attracting more students. We just built a new addition, but the upper school is only growing by a few students each year. I feel as though if LILA had a better sports program, they would have a much higher number of students. If the program gets better, students who started LILA in kindergarten would not switch to the public school. I believe that Lakes International Language Academy is doing many things correctly, they just have a few areas of improvement to create a better quality of education.

Alum: The teachers here are so supportive, and really strive to help you through these awkward years. There are a bunch of clubs to be apart of. Overall, the administration really strives to prepare us for high school, and also even to be ready for some aspects of college. It's a fun school to go to and the atmosphere is really nice. It's not very diverse (predominantly white) so it is a little closed minded or in a 'bubble,' however it is still a really great school. The food here is also pretty decent and honestly is better than the high schools food. The art program here is also very well supported by the administration, and provides a lot of opportunities for students that sent interested in STEM, or just need a relaxing class.
