Long Island School For The Gifted Ratings & Reviews
I have very grateful for the wonderful education my children have received at LISG. The school has nurtured their love of learning.
Our son has been a student at LISG for 4 years, from kindergarten through 3rd grade. We're grateful for the existence of LISG on a daily basis. Since his first day of kindergarten, our son has stepped off the bus with a big smile on his face every day (OK -- I know I sound like a mom, but I'm truly thankful!). If you're considering enrolling your child at LISG, here's what I would say about the school and its distinguishing characteristics: 1) The small class sizes create an ideal learning environment. Our son was one of 11 students in his kindergarten class, one of 15 in his 1st grade classroom, one of 12 in his 2nd grade classroom, and is now one of 13 students in his 3rd grade classroom (and his grade overall has more than doubled in size since kindergarten, representing a healthy enrollment increase). 2) At LISG, students' peer groups are truly one-of-a-kind. Beyond any other factor, my son's friends are what makes him most thrilled to be a student at LISG. His classmates are kind, bright, funny, and free to be themselves from a young age (able to openly express their interests and share their curiosity about the world with each other). The school is also racially/ethnically and socioeconomically diverse, which is no small accomplishment on Long Island, where school districts tend to be highly segregated. 3) We have loved how much our son has been challenged at LISG. Due to the school's rigorous academic approach, he has developed a strong work ethic along with a deep understanding of the subjects he has studied. Last of all... for the parent trying to make a nerve-racking choice about whether to enroll their child at LISG, I'd like to share that my husband and I were initially hesitant about sending our son to LISG, based upon some of the negative online reviews we read several years ago, as well as our own positive experiences at mainstream public and private schools while growing up. I can now say with confidence that enrolling our son at LISG has been the best decision we could have made for him. (Also worth noting -- a new Head of School took over a couple years ago, and she has been diligently working to address issues that had plagued LISG in the past. With the change of administration, we've seen improved communication with parents, the addition of a variety of extracurricular activities, and the hiring of excellent new teachers).
This is the only school on Long Island where you are truly pushed to your limits and challenged. As though the rigor of academia may seem too intense, you later find out in life how resourceful those LISG facets of knowledge come to be. Admission is tough but if you get in -- there's nothing like it; I kid you not.
It's lacking. On the academic side, your child would do very well and be ahead of the public schoolers by 1-3 yrs. The teachers are great and caring, but the administration thinks they know you better than yourself or your parents and pay the teachers way too little compared to the school fee. P. E. is once or twice a week and you only get about 5 minutes of recess if it doesn't rain or snow. There is a big workload on the students. The adjustment to high school would be very difficult due to the lack of clubs and social activity. No late bus is available if joining one of the few clubs.
LISG is a private school for grades pre-K through 9. Not being a public school means that it not beholden to the absurdities of public school education like common core and inane political correctness. The teachers are caring, intelligent and have the best interests of your child in mind. One of the best decisions that I have made regarding my children's education.
