Review for Louisiana School for Math Science and the Arts Foundation Inc., Natchitoches, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

LSMSA was the best decision I ever made in my life. I came from a small town, small school, where my perfect scores and mastery of standardized testing bored me to tears. LSMSA gave me an environment filled with new expectations, new challenges, and healthy intellectual competition. Also, the classes taken at LSMSA can be articulated into college courses, so not only does it prepare you for college life, it can give you a head start on your college education! LSMSA also gives you a new family, people you will be close to for a lifetime. It builds connections, because it's an instant friendship if you run into any other alumni from the school.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

graduating and receiving college credit.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide more funding.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

everything. To make me choose only one thing is just cruel.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very open and giving. It is a very friendly community of intellectuals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world in a more emphatic way. They are already changing the world slowly, student by student.

Ways to make it better...

we could have had more funding.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I hate to sound redundant, but it's the budget cuts. If educational funding gets cut back again, then special projects are out. Special projects is a very important part of LSMSA, and shouldn't be lost!

One thing I'd also say is that...

LSMSA is the best!
