Open Quote Our two children each received an excellent education that not only prepared them well for college (both at Ivy League schools), but that helped them to discern their intellectual passions. They learned a great deal while also having time to relish rich extracurricular experiences and strong friendships that will continue well into later life. LHS gave them a strong academic foundation without the pressure-cooker environment that too often comes along with that. The dedicated faculty are genuinely interested in their students – you will often see them attending plays and sporting events, and I’ve watched many a gaggle of alumni go back to school on break to visit their former teachers. In a society in which we too often cloister ourselves with people just like us, the remarkable heterogeneity of their peer group at LHS prepares its students to be good citizens and to feel at home wherever their path in adulthood will lead. I'm delighted that our children were able to attend Lawrence High. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
