Luhi is a terrific school! My older son has graduated and has received a FULL SCHOLARSHIP to one of the finest universities in the nation. And to negative critics who say that Luhi only pays attention to the athletes...my son never played sports for Luhi. But he dud score a 5 on all his AP tests! His teachers were extremely nurturing and attentive ad they are to my High School daughter now. It's a terrific school that constantly encourages children yo do their best! Expensive, but worth every penny!

I graduated from LuHi last year and just finished my Freshman year at my first-choice college. While college classes were still very tough, LuHi did a great job preparing me because the close community helped me to develop lifelong skills, relationships, and friendships. It is a school where if you work hard and stay on top, you WILL be rewarded. The teachers genuinely care about students, not only academically, but also personally - Mrs. Jennifer Grene especially. She made me a better writer, as well as a much better person. Her advice and warmth are so comforting when things get tough. I didn't think I would miss LuHi so much, but I bought a plane ticket home during the very first week of college for Homecoming. Jane Lottes and the rest of the administration do a great job welcoming back alumni and keeping them in the loop. I truly felt that I was "back at home." All of the "LuHi family" stuff they talk about when you're there starts to actually take on great meaning once you aren't immersed in it everyday. While it's a long ways away, I would love to send my kids to LuHi so they can share the same great experiences that I cherish so much.

LuHi is a school that provides an excellent education in a loving Christian based environment. Each student is honored as an individual and is encouraged to be the best they can be. LuHi is constantly seeking new ways to engage students on many different levels. Service to others and academic achievement are goals that our students consistently strive for. My son has grown so much in his years here. He is confident and really feels like the teachers care about the students. We love LuHi.

Working at Long Island Lutheran has been a privilege. Knowing the landscape of education and the workforce is changing; it has been great working at a place that embraces the change and challenges everyone to become better at what they do. Knowing the community surrounding LuHi cares about every child and every family instills a sense of security that allows students to take "Safe" risks. From those educational risks, students at LuHi learn from their mistakes, and are able to take their learning on the road as they succeed at some of the best colleges in the country. I'm proud to work at LuHi and to be part of such a great organization where education is a byproduct of professionalism and personal relationships.

Long Island Lutheran Middle & High School focuses on the whole child - body, mind and spirit. As the mother of three graduates of LuHi, I saw them grow in their knowledge, personal faith life, love for others, as well as their own worth, skills and abilities. My youngest is still in college, working toward a degree in business/marketing. The older two have graduated from college - one is a successful physical therapist (DPT) and the other works in advertising in NYC. My three kids were very diverse in their abilities and interests, but all three built strong relationships with teachers and peers, stepped outside of their comfort zones and tried new experiences/activities, and became responsible, loving adults along the way. They took APs, traveled globally, built homes, served people in need, played sports, learned to celebrate success and deal with their own failures. No matter where you attend high school, it is loaded with pressures with which all teenagersmust deal. I am so happy that my children spent those tough but important middle and high school years at LuHi!

I graduated from LUHi last year and attending college now. I have to thank LUHi for the reason that I am failing in Chemistry now that I am in college. LUHi did nothing to prepare me for most of my college classes. Giving daily worksheets like they do at LUHI and them stapling them together to form a test is not teaching. I found that out this year. Sadly I realize that my high school experience did not prepare me for college.

As a parent, I loved this school. I was completely confident that the responsive staff was on top of any/all things regarding my child. Found academics superior to what my child would have received if she had been at our local public HS. LuHi values complimented our family values. More importantly, my child had a great experience at LuHi and is doing well in college based on the foundation received at LuHi. LuHi is family. Highly recommend this school. Visit as much as you can before applying/.enrolling to make sure it's a good fit. It was a great fit for us.

LuHi is a good school and I felt well prepared, specifically in the area of writing. I had to do a ton of writing in college and felt I was ahead of my peers tremendously in this area. Sociallly, I never experienced bullying and did not know anyone who had. I think the only minor flaw with the school is that it has a small student body. The smaller student population made for a real personal experience but in college I was a bit overwhlmed by the sizes of my classes etc.

I enjoyed my experience at LuHi and did get into my first choice for college. My math teachers were willing to spend a lot of extra time helping me which eventually things really started to click when I went to college. I also enjoyed my history teachers at the school and they did a good job in teaching how to construct an informative essay. I would say 4 stars for LuHi and not 5 only because is there really a perfect school?

DON'T send your kids here. As a past student here, I only spent one semester here. It was the biggest waste of money. I was in all honor and AP classes in this school. Got 100's on almost all the tests. It was easy. I went back to public school and what happened? I knew nothing that the other kids knew. I started to get 50's and 60's in math. Most the of the good reviews on this site sound like they were made from the LuHi staff. I've talked to other students who had admitted to me that there truly are horrible BULLYING problems that go on in this school. The public schools are more challenging than this school. Any school is better than this school. You really are only paying money for the sports. The teachers don't take their jobs seriously. I was in AP World History, and we honestly wasted a semester doing nothing to prepare for the AP exam. I compared our progress to my public school friends' progress. They were way ahead of LuHi and learned much, much more. They only give attention to the people who play sports. They rave about how high their academic standards are, but in truth, the public school that I attend now have high and challenging academic standards.

Luhi is great. There's no bullying and the teachers are extremely dedicated. Everyone is very intelligent here and the teachers encourage their students to be knowledgable and aware, both inside and outside of the classroom. People of all religions, races and sexual orientations strive here, despite the religious affiliation. The negative posts are absolutely ridiculous. I've been there for the past four years and through tons of ups and downside still have great things to say. It isn't perfect but no school is. Luhi is the best private school on Long Island for it's price.

Luhi is an amazing school. Before my son used to go to public school KG-8th grade. Since his grades were very poor I sent him to Luhi for high school and now he's in all honor classes while before he used to be getting 70s. This happened because Luhi has well-experienced teachers who actually care about the students future.

Long Island Luheran is a great school of passionate learning environment coupled with a deep spiritual foundation. Student involvement is huge, and students are always involved in something, whether it is being on a team, attending a game or charity event, or community service. These three factors -learning, spirit, and involvement- offer a foundation that would cultivate a well rounded young adult, who would be more than ready to enter the next chapter of their life in college. Quite frankly, the posts below who have been rated 2 stars are less seem to be written by people who have never attended school, and if they have, who know what they were doing.

The only reason teachers are at the school is to make LuHi a school, otherwise a parent is paying $12,000 for sports. The teachers nor the students take the academics seriously and some of the teachers look, act and sound like they were hired without any degrees whatsoever. Some rely on Khan Academy to teach their classes. When a fire alarm was set off, the students treated it as a joke; they ran around, screamed, and were chaotic. The teachers had absolutely NO IDEA what to do. They didn't know whether to take the students out into the small, enclosed backyard or keep them in the classroom. A student wouldn't even have to do homework to pass his class and get on the Honor Roll. If your child doesn't play sports, especially basketball, none of the staff will even notice he or she is sitting at a desk, they won't show the same attention that they give to an athlete. Lunch is overpriced. From the website, open house and orientation it looks like a great school, but don't be fooled. The staff is all friendly, but will ignore bullying. Bullying is probably a big issue here. Also, thank you to the recent review about the Nov. 21 review being a staff member. That should say a lot.

I am thrilled with LuHI as the middle school and high school choice for my three kids. My kids couldn't be more different as people, yet all three feel connected, supported and successful. Perhaps the most impressive trait I have found, is the staff commitment to the children and families who attend. Academics are strong and opportunities exist for advanced placement and personal challenge. The athletics and extracurricular activities are numerous and all three of my children have found their own niche despite different interests. As a parent, I would have to say that the greatest gift LuHi offers to its families, is the commitment to help foster kind, inquisitive and confident young adults. LuHi is a blessing.

I graduated from LuHi a couple of years ago and my social experience was much better than my academic experience. The school is unorganized and lazy and administration does not put priority in fixing problem within the school. I had an issue with a fellow classmate where the cops got involved regarding safety and the school did nothing to alleviate the situation and avoided getting involved entirely. Personaly, I've realized LuHi turns their cheek to the internal problems of the school and are drowning in their incompetencies.

I graduated from LuHi a few years ago. It's an exceptionally welcoming environment and great place to grow, emotionally and academically, during your "awkward" years. I was involved in all types of extracurriculars, and the teachers really inspired me to go beyond the classroom in my learning. It was a fantastic high school experience, and truly prepared me for college, and the working world beyond.

(Continuing)... My parents even agree (more then i do) about this issue. However, the guidance department is great and is more then helpful with everything you need. Some advice - if you plan on sending your kids here, don't let yourself be walked all over by any of the staff. A former parent warned my parents about this the year I first attended - if you have a problem, get it fixed (with anything). You deserve what you're paying for, so demand what you need. Don't think it's okay for them to keep pushing it off - I do know they have a reputation for unorganization (trust me, i had to learn that the hard way through a huge conflict).

My children are graduates of LuHi and have college academic scholarships from two of the finest universities in the country. They attended LuHi middle & high school. The school prepared them to excel in college & retain their sense of social responsibility. Parents are prehaps not as involved with the school because the quality of the staff and administration is excellent.

Long Island Lutheran is an awsomeschool for kids and for parents. Students get to know the teachers and teachers get to know the students. Some teachers are so very outstanding. They really care. Nothings perfect, but this is close. Everyone works hard and adults set a great example for the kids. Values count. people count. Acadmics count. Its cool to be smart here.

two of my children are graduates of Lu Hi, I feel the education was wonderful, the classes were challanging and tests seemed to reflect what the kids 'knew', not what they did not know, Testing went along with teachings in class and homework, Homework was not over bearing, and in most instances was directly related to the days teachings or tomorrows lessons. The students abilities were assessed EARLY in the Lu Hi experience so if they were deemed to get on the AP track, they began accelerating in 7th grade I do feel the athletic dept needs some backing, If your student is not in Basketball, they are considered in 'second class' athletics and the kids resent it. $$ raised at fund raisers is trying to fund other sports to make up for the lack of funding from the athletic program. They really should encourage boys and girls lacrosse programs. I do wish there was more parent envolvement, because the parents I did get to meet that were my kids friends' parents are wonderful people and we still have lasting friendships It really got me to feel like I was part of a Family, not just a school. The principal, and Director of the school really care about EACH student, as do many of the teachers, and the kids became 'repectful friends' with many of the teachers (a daughter of mine still corresponds with one of her teachers after 7 years away from the school and New York!) My advice to you if you are thinking of sending a child to Lu Hi is DO IT ,,,, and then get involved yourself
