I went to LPS for my elementary school and I had the best experience there! I finished elementary in 5th grade in the year of 2018-2019. All my teachers made learning fun and easy, and they were really kind too! I will never forget my teachers and my old school because of so much good memories! And because of that, I still remember all of my teachers'' name. (I will not post the names on here because of privacy). The faculty and staffs there were also really kind and helpful. If it is still there after I graduate college, I might as well send my children there too!
