5 Stars! Look no further. We did an exhaustive search for a high school for our child including every private school and public schools in 3 districts. We found Littleton to be the best of all worlds. If you are looking for a high school in the metro area that is not too big and not too small with a top notch IB program and clubs, Littleton is the right school. Kids come from over 40 middle schools around the metro area so there are not a lot of cliques. Our kids are thriving and we couldn't recommend it more highly.
The principal is top notch. She is a great leader and is high touch with the parents and students. She is forward thinking and is bringing a lot of new ideas to the school. She is incredibly effective.
The culture creates an environment where kids can be themselves and discover their interests. There is a lot of room in clubs so kids have opportunities they would not have at the large public schools.
I have deleted a previous5 star review until the school year is off to a smoother start. The school was under construction and this appears to have affected the mindset of the administration who needs to put emphasis back on helping the students with education, heath and well-being. Administration needs to listen to the needs of the students and parents instead of doings what is easiest for them.
My daughter has liked almost all of her teachers very much. They are approachable and encouraging. During conferences they share great information and I can tell they really know my child. They take a personal interest in the kids.
My daughter is a junior at LHS. We opted in to LHS after several visits and boy are we glad we did. She is not a number at this school. The teachers really know her and work hard to provide an excellent education. She is very involved with various activities through the school and she loves that the schools fosters and environment of acceptance. There are no cliques and kids are all respectful and supportive of each others interests. She has made so many wonderful friends. Dr. Oakes is a wonderful leader and very visible. They do a great job of creating community. Many levels of coursework so that all children are challenged. My husband and I enjoy going to the concerts, plays, and sporting events.
