    I went to FLHS all four years and i loved it. I was given everything I asked for and more. The arts and sciences are all great; I got 4's and 5's for all my AP tests. In college now I find that classes I am taking are easier because other kids I know did't take classes with such difficulty that I did at home. I loved it so much and now I miss. Go Ludlowe!

    I transferred out of FLHS against my will after freshman year. FLHS is an amazing school. No other high school can compare. I constantly find myself comparing my new school to FLHS and my new school does not even come close to FLHS. (Even though it is a 10/10 school.) Any parent looking for schools in Fairfield County I highly suggest FLHS. It is a wonderful high school experience and you're kid is bound to find a niche there. I wish I could go back.

    I recently transferred out of FLHS. It had an amazing education and wonderful helpful teachers but many of the students were less than nice. I had few friends there.

    I am a secretary at FLHS having recently retired from industry. I love it! The students and faculty are wonderful friendly smart thoughtful and enthusastic. The faculty and staff are professional joyful and serious about educating and enriching children. The students are a joy to behold. They are adorable friendly polite and very bright and talented. I wish I could go back to high school at FLHS!
