    No more stress!! My son went from having "D's and "F's" to "C's and "B's within a week! The teachers and staff are outstanding. I would recommend this school to anyone they help on such an individual level. I see a difference in him and it's great its good to see everyone smiling again!!

    I am the parent of a special ed student and a upper high school student at LACS. I am continuously blown out of the the water by the fact that my special ed child is now in main stream classes and doing very well. in traditional public school he was failing every thing and still passing to the next grade ( how is that no child left behind!) at LACS they actually take the time to make sure he understands what he is being taught and can accurately apply what was taught to real world life. My special Ed child no longer HATES school and is beginning to feel he has a real future. My upper grade HS child has transfered to LACS to get a jump start on her future LACS is helping her to attend Collage wail still in HS. The future is great 4 my kids thanksLACS

    The small class size makes it eaiser for my kids to learn. Have 2 that graduated from LACS and 2 still students there. Went from 'D' and 'F' student to 'A' and 'B'. Very happy with the school and wouldn't want my kids going anywhere else.

    The quality of academic progarmas is excepotoinal. The one thing a student and the consuler thought up was after school jam sessions where students can bring their guitars or use the schools musical equipement. I think this is a gtreat way to keep the kids busy and out of trouble. The level of partent ivolvement varies from person to person. I think that this school is great for those who need a better environment and a little hands on learing.
