The student experience at Luther is wonderful. The staff is very supportive, and the teacher to student ratio is perfect for a very personal learning environment. One of Luther's best aspects is its community. However, many people I know are concerned with the grading at Luther. While I appreciate the that the heavy workload and strict criteria Luther adheres to aid in university preparation, the difficulty of the marking is unfair. While the U of R recognizes Luther students as having slightly lower grades, students applying for universities out of province, or internationally, are placed at a disadvantage. Personally, I have missed scholarship opportunities due to Luther's mark scheme. Again, it is not the content that I have a disagreement with, as it prepares people for university. It is simply the harder marking that causes difficulties
Our children have valued the sense of community, the friendships, and the range of opportunities available at Luther. They find teachers friendly and supportive.
