The school is awsome for children hungry for knowledge about the arts.I got accepted!!! I never knew that i would. I didnt know anything about that school until MLK Elementry told me.
this school is an excellent school! im in 8th grade here and my overall experience here has been great. its best of both worlds becasue you get the great acedemics and you also get to do what you love to do! the teachers and administrators here really care about how you learn and what youre doing. its just a great school. its also nice that they have high standards here too. you have to really have a passion for what you're doing to excell.
I am in 11th grade at DA now, but I went to LaVilla for 6th-8th grade and I loved it! Mrs.Griffin is an amazing director and she helped me improve a lot on violin! =D
Best feeling of community. Best participation by parents/kids/teachers. Great School~
im a 7th grader there an it i just way to many students there this year and we only have fou minutes to get to class and it would be cooler if we had sports at our school but its still a pretty good school because we have arts and that can get yo a long way
I am a 7th grader at lavilla and i loooove it! ms.griffin the orch. teacher is soo nice! Any one who wants to go to this school has made a great choice.

I was excited but nervous when my child was accepted to attened lasota. She has an IEP , but that didn't change anyting . Im not saying it was the easiest school year she worked harder than she has ever had to. she was in all standard classes with 'average' kids and if needed to leave the class to go take a test then she could.I am extremelly thankful to her guidence coun. Mrs Sheard, her math teacher Mrs Wilson , (Mrs Smith who came in to toutor her 4 days a week for 5 months with math) and Mrs Lunger 4 her patience. These woman have contibuted themselves to my daughters succsess at this great school! Great kids, teacers ,faculty, guidence, custodians (love u Mrs daniels) lunch ladies ( thank u for feedin my baby!) and police officer that dirrects trafic makes 4 a great school.
i give it all five stars because its a great eand has very high expectations for students needs and learning.
i love lavilla it is so great i will go their intill the 8th grade. i am in band and i think it is so fun.we have a preformance coming up and i can't stop thinking about it.we have been practicing and practicing.sometimes lavilla can be tough but itis easy to catch up.other times every one is fun and energized like me. i just love it.
I love Lavilla.I'm in the 7th grade and take chorus and drama.I love Mr.Pendry(chorus teacher).He is funny and nice.This school is very clean,there are nice people here so it is easy to make friends.I would definetly recommend this school cuz you can show your true talents and live ur dream.
I love LaVilla. It is a great school. I'm a dancer there and the environment is great. You get all the help you need and you can sign up for after school help if you need it. I would recommend this school to someone who loves the Arts. So many great opportunities come from being here at LaVilla, I love it here. (:
Im in 8th grade for singing and i absoplutly hate this school, Way to much stress! I have hours and hours of homework ever night, and thats not added with the rehearsal time! A majority of the people their are materialistic and can be rude. Even some of the teachers are rude. I was looking forward to going to this school, and now i cant wait to leave.
I go to lavilla for visual arts and it is an AMAZING school. the cafetiria food isn't all that great, but you get used to it. btw, this is a shoutout to Mr.Lux!!
I love this school my child gets what she needs in everything . She loves the teachers and administration. I love this school
i luv lavilla . i am going into my third year there and i have learned so much in my academic calses and my art area(s)-band -keyboard. if u are still you are thinking of having your child or if they want to come here it would be a good oppurtunity.
LaVilla was by far the best school i have ever attended. i went all three years and as the years went on i loved it more and more. at lavilla you are free to express yourself through your arts area and you get to hang ut with people that have the same intrests as you.i learned so much through my arts area teachers, especilly my technical theatre class and costume design class. the academic teachers there are also amazing. they take time to individualy talk ablout problems and struggles you are going through in class. this school does an amazing job at preparring you for your next step in life, highschool. through lavilla i learned more than enough skills to get accepted into douglas anderson school of the arts. i love this school and i recommend it to any one and everyone dedicated to academics and thier arts areas.
i absolutly love this school.here your in an environment where you can express who you are.the teachers are amazing, you can talk to them as if they were one of your friends.this is the best school ever!
Lavilla is a great school for artistic middle schoolers. Whether its academics or arts areas lavilla has it under control. I am currently going into the 8th grade and every year Lavilla has gone above and beyond expectations. I am happy to go to Lavilla!
LaVilla Scholl of the Arts is an elite magent school. A vast majority of students are at LaVilla due to the excellence of their audition. This school has phenomenal academics which is key to maintain high standards at every level. (students must perform well in academics as well as their chosen arts area). This school prepares students to enter Douglas Anderson High School of the Arts. This high school is filled by audition only. I can think of no better place for my student to flourish as she explores her God-given talents and abilities.
