The staff is outstanding and the whole school atmosphere is very positive. Our daughter just graduated from 8th grade and we were very grateful to Laco for her great learning experience and personal happiness through it all.

Amount of homework: Just right
Submitted by a parent · August 17, 2015
Our daughter adjusted to the expected homework load. Of course they teachers expect much, but there was a fair 'give and take' attitude overall

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

The Catholic Dominican spirit helps the students learn and appreciate the important moral values of our culture.

Develops empathy: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · June 21, 2015
Laco requires community service. There are daily morning meetings that talk about the needs of the community. The classes are small and students treat each other as family.
