Both my children graduated from LS. Colleges across the country know this school, and rate it highly. Beyond test scores and grade points, the advanced placement courses, sports/music achievements, give a student a leg up when colleges rate their high school experience.

I graduated from LS last year and couldn't have imagined a better high school experience. As a first semester college student, I can already see how well LS has prepared me at a college level. The teachers are invested and certainly care about their students' successes. I had a fantastic four years!

There is no better school in the state. The teachers go through a long process before they get hired...so I hear... And they are second to none. I had 2 children go through the high school. They couldn't say more about the education the received. Makes a parent very proud to live in Sudbury. Its worth every penny for the high property taxes. What kids really love high school... I know I didn't and would give a poor review to the private school I attended after seeing the education my kids received. Thanks LS.... Keep it going.

I attended this school in the early 90s. It definitely prepared me to attend college and excel. 216 students out of our graduating class of 220 went on to attend college that fall. The teachers were exceptional, providing individual care and guidance. They really want the student to achieve greatness.

L-S offers the most complete high-school learning experience in the country. My kids got a great education there that has stood them in good stead. Any young woman or man who attends L-S is extremely lucky.

LSRH is among the best of the best HS in the country. The teachers are so dedicated and loving their job, which help the quality and popularity of the school beyond many others.

Incredible school. Offers a wide variety of interesting classes. Teachers are dedicated. College-like atmosphere, really prepares students not only for standardized tests but for general knowlege and life. Athletic programs are fantastic

The towns of Lincoln and Sudbury value education and it truly shows. LS is one of the best HS's in MA private schools included. The offerings are more like a college than a HS. Teachers are there after and before hours offering students extra help asa needed. This is a special place. Two of my children graduated and are doing very well in college, I still have one child at LS and is thriving. We couldn't be happier with the curriculum and social atmosphere at LS.

No better school in Massachusetts. Wonderful environment for learning. Lots of support from teachers. Prepares students well for college. Beautiful new campus where nothing is lacking. The students who attend LS are really lucky to have such a great place to study. Better than private school.

A good school for good students, but not supportive of some. Much Potential. New building is nice.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 19, 2004

Can't find a better school. Highest quality of teachers and academics. Amazing new building that has state of the art facilities (5 gyms, dark room, pottery room, 2 theaters, large classrooms). Wide array of courses offered which rival many colleges. Every student leaves very well prepared for college. I would go as far as believe that LS is better than many private high schools. Sincerely, a former LS graduate and a current elementary school teacher.

L-S provides a top notch education with particular emphasis on teaching students to think for themselves. Teachers are particularly involved and go the extra step to help their students learn and gain the valuable experiences that will serve them well in college. Excellent school, excellent teachers, excellent coaches.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted April 2, 2004

Teachers treat the students with respect. Students given a great deal of freedom, preparing them for college. Huge course selection available. Very high academic standards. New state of the art facility in fall 2004. Excellent teachers.

Excellent school for self-motivated students and jocks, others get lost in the cracks.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 26, 2003

I had two kids graduate from this high school and I can't say enough regarding the academics, etc. They were both well prepared for college and because of it's size, they were prepared for their colleges, one a state school of 40,000 and a private college of 2300 students. The towns of Lincoln and Sudbury are well known for their strong academics.

The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
