The Lawrenceville School Reviews

The Lawrenceville School is considered one of the best high schools in the country for a reason. The academics are among the best. The teachers are all qualified and have extensive experience from the best high schools and colleges. In terms of diversity, Lawrentians are from around the world. At Lawrenceville, students are taught manage the many aspects of their lives, and I feel prepared to transition into college. The facilities are one of a college, including a STEM lab with VR and 3D printing, a building for every subject, and a huge library. The sports are also good here. The mandatory sport for each term brings out a lot of talent in students who would have never tried a sport otherwise. Also, students can participate in clubs, sports, and school sponsored volunteer activities. There is much more that could be said about how good the Lawrenceville School is. But I hope from what you have read, you can see how great a school it is.
It is a life changing experience for my daughters, the best investment for their lives. Most teachers live on the campus with the students, they are always reachable. They even make themselves available during the winter/summer break. The students hosted many club events in headmaster's house(also on campus), the door is always open to them. The student advisors, housemasters and subject teacher provide the students/parents feedbacks through the interim reports, end of semester reports besides of the grade. Most of the teachers are very proud of being the lifetime learners, and they are the role models to the students.
Our child started this school as a straight A student, confident, with a can do attitude, accomplished in many different fields and looking towards a bright future. We had to withdraw our child from the school after our child developed extreme anxiety and basically shut down. During our child's boarding at the school, adults including some teachers and employees in leadership positions were emotionally aloof even passive aggressive towards our child and our family and unsupportive as they crushed our child's last emotional anchors. The school is not all that great as they want you to believe. Beware.
