You cannot understand the teachers. They are not kind and patient. But you can learn a lot in this school. It is a math and science school. It doesn't have very many extracurricular progams. Your child has to be pretty smart to go here.

In my opinion Lisa Academy is is not a very good school. I go that school and I find it very hard to understand the teachers since most of them do not know english very well and have very heavy accents. I find it very hard to take any of the teachers seriously which sometimes affects my school work. They focus all of their attention on learning math and science and a little on none on the fun stuff which is what us kids need. We have no gym so we have P.E. class in our parking lot. Our P.E. class can get interupted by cars coming in the parking lot. It is not only a disturbance but a danger to have children playing in a place where they could get hit by a car. That is what I think about Lisa Academy.

This is a really nice school, although it is very new. There are a lot of academic opportunities and classes are arranged to encourage academic achievement. Parent involvement is also encouraged by the numerous activities done. There are a lot of extracurricular clubs such as Mathcounts, Quizbowl, Basketball, Guitar club, etc.

This is a great school where we learn a lot of stuff. The teachers are nice and friendly, and the atmosphere in the school is awesome!

Lisa Academy is a model school. Besides the extraordinary commitment of teachers, staff and administration, what I like best is the tier system. Students are placed in classrooms with other students of similar academic ability. In my opinion, having children in classrooms with other children of similar academic ability makes Lisa Academy a much better place for our child to go to school.
