Comprehensive good school! Safe and convenient in a small town. Classical and Beautiful Campus of New England style! Nice teachers and schoolmates! Wonderful atheletic activities with other high school of Boston. Nice College counselling...
Unfortunately the quality of the school had dropped dramatically in recent years. My son has attended Lawrence since the 9th grade and enjoyed it very much his firs year there. My daughter is one year behind my son and she also enjoyed it her first year. However, recently, the Administration has been acting disrespectful to many of the parents and students. I Do not believe that this type of behavior should be displayed to us parents who are paying nearly $50,000 a year per child.
We were very fortunate to have our childen attend Lawrence Academy. It had a wonderful balance of both day and boarding programs. Our children had different intersts and both were able to excel socially and academically. They both got into Ivy League school and are doing very well .
I have a daughter who has gone there for 4 years. We absolutely love the school. She is involved with the total school concept, including organizations and clubs. The school has lots of options for the kids to get involved with. She is also involved with the sports program, playing soccer, basketball and lacrosse. The teachers are very involved with the students and you can call them anytime to get help and information. The academic programs are very motivational and the classes are small. I am sad to see her graduate, but Lawrence Academy has given her the opportunity to go to a wonderful college.
