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.

Our daughter adjusted to the expected homework load. Of course they teachers expect much, but there was a fair 'give and take' attitude overall

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.

The homework load is quite heavy, but students who leave for high school and college are more than prepared as a result of the work load.

I chose Lacordaire based on their sell of the school as a small, nurturing environment. That turned out being so far from the truth. They have the uncanny ability to harm a child's self-esteem
