The positive atmosphere and influence in your day to day life is worth everything.
I transferred to a public school to see what it was like. It really opened my eyes to what Lancaster Mennonite offered. The atmosphere was the biggest thing I noticed; the negative influences are not as prevalent here. You're surrounded by people who share the same values and beliefs. That is so important to have.

Most of all, I believe that LMS is a safe place for my children.
When my daughter was young, we went away for our anniversary. My daughter was scared, so her teacher prayed with her, encouraged her, and told her that God would take care of her. That's the kind of school I wanted to surround my children with.

Lancaster Mennonite connected me to God and friends, and filled a void in my heart.
Had I not moved from my old school, I would still be with the wrong crowd and probably would not have kept going to church. Now that I've come to Lancaster Mennonite, I've gotten into the right crowd, met the right people and I definitely feel that I've made friendships that will last a lifetime.

Based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, LM was originally founded in 1942 to give parents an alternative to public schools where students could be taught in a Christ-centered environment.
