This school focuses more on results rather than progress. My friends child is currently enrolled here and it's absolutely ridiculous how little he grasps concepts and understanding of many subjects and they also didn't pick up the fact that he has learning comprehension problems and ADD yet he memorises answers and gets high scores on tests but he understands very little. The danger of this is it will hit him very hard once he gets into high school or university as you truly need to be able to grasp concepts then. Seems kids with learning issues will be left behind and they just don't want to fail anyone because they want their paychecks. Tuition is very high and I don't believe you get your money's worth when they choose to ignore any learning issues your child has.

This school has a small child to teacher ratio, therefore your child will get a lot of one on one action with the teacher if it's needed. The school is very safe. I have a child in the 1st grade right now and she had an issue, with another child that issue was taken care of in a matter of minutes vs. other school where these types of things go on and on. This school has been here for 125 years. It is one of the oldest school in the USA. I do believe it is the 2nd oldest catholic school. There are a lot of parents the get involved but there could be a lot more.

This school is fabulous. The education is strong, and the students are rained to be polite and kind to everyone. There is no bulliying problem, and the students grow to be like sisters and brothers over the years. The kids at LFS are all wonderful. This is the best school I have ever seen.

This is a magnificent school. Each and every child is being taught to be clean and polished. The educators are well trained and teach useful material. There is harly any of the common bully epidemic, and on the rare occasion there is, it is dealt with appropriately. The children are respectful of their elders and one another, polite, and very sweet. One of the best school in Maryland.

This is a beautiful school. I am very impressed with the educators, and the classes are well-equipped and based on a strong foundation. The children are kept in line and are all very polite and nice. One of the cleanest, loveliest school in the Archdiocese. The best.

This school offers a thorough and sound teaching of the Catholic faith, and the art, english and writing programs are strong. The math program in the upper grades is weak, however, as many kids are left behind and not given extra help.

This is a great neighborhood school. My experience has been that the faculty work hard to make learning a positive experience for each child. The curriculm is challenging. I've seen my children taught the importance of a good attitude for facing the challenges of the day, the benefits that accrue from hard work and importance of compassion for classmates and the less fortunate of our community. There is a huge amount of parental involvement and the administration has been receptive to feed back and encourages parents to get involved in making the school a better place.
