"I just wanted you to know that this is such a great group of kids - they support each other - given opportunities to alienate or make fun of someone they don't - they go right to showing support and inclusion - it's incredible to watch and be a part of."

Dear Jen --

“It’s been a long time since I saw you, and I wanted to write you and the staff of Learning Prep about wonderful news. I am officially graduating from the University of Massachusetts, Boston this May 25, 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Supply-Chain Management and a Minor in History. It was challenging getting used to three classes, four classes and then five classes in my fourth year . . . but it was worth it, especially thanks to all the skills and knowledge I learned from you and all the dedicated staff of Learning Prep.”



To all the wonderful staff and administration:

I sit and read all the testimonials in your brochures for your school and I wish I could write that well.  I wish I could tell all your staff Thank You for everything they have done for my son. I read about how their previous schools just did not understand how to teach their child and how great it was when their child got to LPS. That's my story!

At the open house, you mentioned that a family thanked LPS for "giving our family back.”  That's my 

My son had such significant learning challenges.   I was not sure that LPS could help him.  In addition, he could not communicate to advocate for himself, which made things even harder.  I remember worrying about him changing classrooms, getting up at 6 am and being on the bus 1 hour each way every day, and all the things I didn't think he could do.

But he did it!  I am so proud of him!  My son passed the MCAS.  I feel so proud I feel like crying.  I just 
cannot believe we are here right now.  It has been a difficult journey but I feel we are on the top of the 
mountain.  But we are only half way there because now real life is about to begin.  I feel that LPS has 
been so helpful in preparing him for the future.

I cannot tell you how well your staff has done to help my son advocate and participate and be a regular 
student.  The combination of guidance counselor/ teachers has helped my child be successful. I really want to thank my son's guidance counselor, Meredith Sullivan, who has done a tremendous job 
helping my son to make friends and encourage his passion and, most of all advocate for himself.

I want to thank all of his teachers for their endless patience and encouragement they provided my son 
to do his work.

Thank you LPS,

A new parent

“[Our daughter] has truly grown over the last year, thanks to all the wonderful teachers that have taken the time to get to know [her] and to understand how she learns.  This is incredible for her self-esteem, and is a warm welcome for my husband and I to see our daughter learn in a manner in which she understands.   She gets it, and doesn’t need our help.  She has become that independent pre-teen and we are very happy to see that change. . . LPS is a wonderful community/family of understanding, support and new friendships, and we are very grateful!”
