I have to inform future readers of the above posts that are raving about students being accepted in these Ivy League type schools is not merely based on LISD being a decent school. It also has to do with the fact that Lopez Island attracts the monied, affluent, and trust fund type of people with children.

Our child has attended Lopez Island School District grades 4-12.We have seen LISD seniors accepted to highly competitive schools, for example: Cornell University, Brown University, MIT, Barnard, Claremont Colleges, Colorado College, Middlebury College. This small, rural public school, through the support of its close-knit community, offers a variety of experiential educational opportunities: international travel and service learning (China, France, Japan, Central America); a nationally recognized farm to school program; wooden boat building; field trips including sailing, backpacking, camping; firefighting and EMT; opportunity for music, dance and theater that include the entire community; school credit is available for participation in Community Shakespeare. Every child who wants to engage in sports is able to do so. The teachers and administrators know each child individually. Attending school board meetings has provided insight that reinforces our belief in the school administration, school board, teachers and staff work -- all work tirelessly and consistently for students. This school is a gem and has been a great experience for our child.

Amazed by the graduates of this small school and how well they have placed themselves in colleges. Last year Lewis and Clark, Brandeis, Cornell Univ., Colgate, Northeastern, UW. Year's before Pitzer, Whitman, MIT, Yale, Deep Springs, CWU, Vassar, Hamilton, Stanford, WWU, Colorado College, Bowdoin. Better yet great social and interactive skills, lots of travel opportunity.

Just look at the test scores and what graduates actually do after they graduate. Numbers don't lie, but people who say they got a great education on Lopez do.

We disenrolled our 6th-grader from this school and began home-schooling him after lax academic standards and constant harassment from other students had taken a big toll. Our boy is average academically, but he was one B+ short of getting straight A's. In his 8th-grade-level math class, only 1 or 2 of the 13 kids knew the times tables. An English class spent a good hour watching a fun film on extreme sports. The harassment was even more disturbing. When our son complained of a student calling him stupid, the principal told him "that's OK - that's not bullying." When he took his problems to the counselor, she told him "it's only bullying if it happens over and over again." (If you get your spleen kicked in once, that's not bullying.) We told our son to yell loudly in class whenever he was harassed. After he'd done that a dozen times, one teacher actually dealt with a situation. And many other parents have uglier stories to tell than ours. They give up and home-school their kids, or send them to an expensive private school, which requires hours of commuting. Don''t get snowed by the website's rhetoric. "Small school" does bit mean "good school." This one is substandard.

Small inovative school where administrators, teachers, and students work together to provide a good atmosphere for learning.

This school has some very committed and caring teachers. There is plenty of parent involvement but as with most schools it is always the same group of parents that volunteer. The school could use some education in the life skills area. Students seem to be graduating without a clue as to how to do the simplest things such as keep a checking account, cooking a simple meal, writing a resume or doing their own laundry. Perhaps schools in general need to add back a little of the home economics that use to be common in schools some years ago. That said, these students come out being able to read write and compute. The community is also very supportive.
