The best way to get to know LREI is to see our students and faculty in action. That’s why we strongly recommend all interested families to attend either a morning tour or an evening open house. We encourage middle and high school applicants to attend with their families.
Tours are conducted during the school day. Each tour provides you with the opportunity to visit classrooms, see students at work, and meet with divisional faculty and/or administrators. On middle and high school tours, current students will be available to speak with prospective students and their families. There will be time for questions at the conclusion of each tour. Tours begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early in order to experience the full tour.

Open Houses take place during the evening and include a curriculum fair and conversations with LREI faculty, students and parents.
