LREI is an exciting place to go to school, bursting with a palpable spirit of curiosity, creativity, challenge, growth and achievement. We provide an intellectually rigorous experience filled with academic challenge and excellent preparation for life. Active, hands-on projects and investigations allow our students to see meaning in their daily schoolwork and to establish connections between it and their lives outside of school. For 90 years, our faculty and administration have worked to uphold the school’s progressive mission and commitment to social justice and diversity.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing more about our school when you visit. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to email or call with questions.
