Teachers at Luther strive to push the boundaries of students, urging them to take leaps and bounds in their learning process. At times, the workload is very heavy - I often find myself having to skip extracurricular activities and still getting minimal sleep. However, I always know what teachers want from me, and that they want me to succeed.
Luther teachers do a great job of preparing students to synthesize information and communicate effectively in both written and spoken formats. I'm happy to see that there is trend toward having more project and inquiry based learning. I wonder sometimes if the focus of being a university preparatory school doesn't rush some students to a stage of independence that they aren't quite ready for. OSA is not a very effective system for keeping informed of how your student is doing, but the school is investigating other options. I find that teachers communicate well with me if I initiate the communication, but they have never contacted me first. I appreciate that all teachers teach in their specialty area, and seem to be passionate about their subject matter.
