    Best school in Philadelphia my son was ill in the Children's Hospital for a few weeks. My son's teacher and principal both came to visit and even bought him great books to read and take home. The attention they provide to each student is wonderful and individual. They love there students the security is great and I would not want him to attend any other school.. LSA Proud.

    IMy daughter loves this school. It has wonderful and well prepared teachers excellent resources and administration. Small class sizes enable more individualized attention (15 students per class approx).This school operates more like a private school. All children have to wear uniform. They are very strict and organized. My daughter is very fortunate to have Ms. Halprin as a teacher.
