LHS is a great school-where students are a part of an extended family and the teachers genuinely care about each child. I actually had a positive experience with our International Student who chose to attend Lutheran High School after having attended another local private high school. Our international student was struggling with his academics and then came to LHS where teachers went out of their way to welcome him and work with him, after school, on their own time-all in an effort to help our international student reach his academic goals. As with any program you should always do your homework. But as I understand it many agents approach LHS every year allowing LHS to be very selective in who they choose to admit. LHS is not in charge of homestay arrangements but if a family is interested in being a host family or in need of a host family they can put the families in touch with various homestay providers. That's how it worked with us when we again chose to host an international student.

The school has a positive community-like atmosphere. The teachers seem to really care about the students and their success inside and outside of the classroom and are willing to help them. The small size allows for students to have opportunities to participate in activities that they might not be able to at larger schools.

Be aware of International home-stay program offered from this school. School contracts with outside agent who overcharges but do not have proper supervision among the school/agent/host family, and the host families placement by the agent are not thoroughly sought. Schools refuse responsibility if contract is not fulfilled or under performance by the agent. Your due diligence by requesting references and asking prior students are strongly recommended before you put your students in jeopardy . And because of this unpleasant experience, we have no choice but pull the student out of this school. This is a remark by a regretful student guardian during 2012~2013 school year

I think there needs to be a more updated review. I have two students at Lutheran High and it has been a wonderful experience. The communication online between the school office/teachers/students has been great. I definitely know what is going on with their grades and if any help is needed the teachers are definitely available. I also like that my kids can participate in sports, don't have to be a star player, but need to give it your all and the encouragement to do well is great. Also, both my kids are in NJROTC and it is an outstanding program. I wish all the kids would try it. Small class size is great and strong spiritual foundation. Don't pass this school by, definitely go by and take a look for yourself. I think you will be very pleased.

After reviewing some of the prior comments, I thought it necessary to write a more recent review of this private school. If you're looking for a strong academic foundation for your child, as well as a strong spiritual foundation, I would strongly recommend researching this school and talking with other parents. Here are a few positive attributes of the school: 1. Strong academics, college-preparatory school. 2. Strong moral foundation. Family environment (if involved). 3. Small class sizes. 4. Many extracurricular programs in sports, music, civic, etc. 5. Well organized Navy-sponsored NJROTC program. 6. Good communication with parents on a weekly basis. 7. Very high in scholarship funding for seniors. 8. Very professional & personable principal. 9. Very dedicated teachers. 10. Safe school environment. In summary, we are very satisfied with our children attending Faith Lutheran High School in La Verne, CA. Do your own research on the items listed above, and I believe that you will find a very organized and loving school environment for your child.

when i first went to Lutheran High I thought it was great; considering I loved it way more than public school but now i see it for how it is. All they do is take the students and parents money as if we are all rich and they only care for promoting the basketball team. Our first page in our 09-10 yearbook didn't even have our school's name or picture on it; it read STATE CHAMPIONS with a basketball. All of the teachers are leaving and its obvious they are leaving for a reason. i cant wait to graduate.

This school is awful. The principal got forced into the position and has zero clue about being a principal. All the extra money the school has goes to basketball. The principal lacks integrity. The academics are poor. I would steer clear of this campus, until changes are made in teachers and administration.

The school is aweful. They are very disorganized, the principal is not involved, there is no guidance couselor. Students meet one on one with teachers behind closed doors which worries me a bit. All the school cares about for activities is the boys basketball program. None of the teachers are dedicated to their students and eliminate curriculum because they get 'bored' with it and the students don't understand it anyway.

Its a very nice school. Having gone there myself I can say that the teachers are great but as others have said, the school is a bit disorganized. The NJROTC program is incredible. I highly suggest that program to any entering students.

My son is in his third year. Good school, great teachers, office doesn't communicate well regarding school events. Everything is last minute. Plenty of extra activities. The school always wants money for something.

My son attended Lutheran High Laverne all 4 yrs and graduated with honors. I was a little worried about his transferring to a large college, since he had only known small classrooms, but he has excelled in all his classes at Cal State Fullerton . We are preparing him for graduation and then it's off to law school. I feel LHS did a wonderful job preparing him both emotionally and academically. The teachers really went the extra mile for all the kids and I am truly grateful for all the hands on teaching that transpires at LHS. It is really nice to see the teachers get so involved with the kids and truly care, sadly in public school this cannot happen, they just have too many kids to take care of. Lutheran High is a great school and prepares the kids for college and life!

My two boys started in public school and moved to Lutheran High (9th and 11th respectively). Both in college and received stronger academics at LHS. Both on 50% academic & separate athletic scholarships. Best move we ever made. Small classroom atmosphere, dedicated teachers and great principal. Full-time guidance councilor was instrumental in scholarships.

Great principal, a few very dedicated teachers, disorganized activities and office. Get ready for school events to be cancelled, rescheduled, re-routed to a different location with virtually no notice. Good intentions but very disorganized for such a small place. No school's perfect, but this one needs some help.

My two kids both excelled with the school, and had opportunities that they never would have had in other high schools. i.e., Sports, Arts, Music, NJROTC, Drama, Leadership. God bless the school and their administration!
