    All 3 of my children graduated from Lapel high school. They all received personal attention from the teachers and staff that you don't receive from a large school. I would highly recommend this school system to anyone with children who want their children to get a good education with a great small town feel.

    As a former student I would have to say that a small school beats the impersonal experience that most get at larger schools. LHS holds a dear place in my mind and I look back at my high school career there and smile.

    I go to LHS and I love it! I'm only a freshman but so far everything is cool. I've gone to Lapel nearly all my life and with the new high school everything is awesome.

    Being at Lapel is a great experience. Everyone is very welcoming there and very helpful. At Lapel there are so many oppurtunities tht you are given and the athletics are very nice as well !

    Unless you were born and raised in Lapel this School will treat you and your children as outsiders. I had so many meetings with the principal and counselor that it became a big joke. They will tell you what you want to hear. But they do not help you. The counselor only helps A students who do not need help. To the parent of the special needs student. It took me four years to finally get someone to even call me. And then it was in May at the end of the school year. I dislike the principal of this school he thinks he is a God and he is a nothing. And the counselor is LAZY! Too Lazy to help students that really need it. She is too involved in the A students who dont need help. My son will graduate in three years. And I am counting the days.

    I have been very disappointed with the quality of education my 8th grade child received at Lapel Jr. High School. My child has severe learning disabilities and at his January case conference meeting I requested an OT evaluation as my child has fine motor deficits. It is May and we have heard nothing. I spoke to a Special Education law professor and she said that is grounds for mediation and possible due process. Also my child has received nothing above a D- in core classes (most of the grades are Fs however) and when a child is on an IEP and is receiving marks like that I see it as a failure on the school's part to provide my child an appropriate education that best meets the educational needs. Perhaps Lapel is a 4 star school for the mainstream children but certainly not for the children with special needs.

    Lapel Jr/Sr high School is great. There is a lot of parent involvement. The teachers really care about the students. I wouldn't send my kids to any other school.

    Lapel is an awesome clean school. There is no violence and it is very safe.
