Don't Just Take Our Word for It...
What Others Say About Lausanne
With Teacher Appreciation Week upon us, we wanted to take this opporunity to express our complete with the care, guidance and professionalism shown by Peggy Boatwright (JK teacher) toward our family. Her ability to observe, liste and shepherd our son's development, coupled with an open and friendly communicative style, is very refreshing. Michael's (PK) Lausanne experience began on such a high note with Jodi Howard and Sherry Williams, we felt it would be unlikely to improve; however, that is not the case. We continue to be encouraged by Peggy's ability to create an environment for learning which feels both nurturing and challenging. She also possesses a unique skill set that celebrates individual expression and growth without demanding complete conformity. Additionally, Peggy is very adept at recognizing individual strengths and characteristics that may require improvement. We strongly feel that Peggy is one of the finest examples of the Lausanne community.

I am writing to let you know how much I appreciate one of your teachrs Mr. Michael Damplo. This past fall semester Mr. Damplo allowed me to do my graduate research project with one of his classes. This research project was my last class at the University of Memphis in order to graduate with a Master of Arts in Teaching. Mr. Damplo was very professional, knowledgeable, and flexible in working with my schedule. I also had to do observation hours just watching Mr. Damplo in action and I obtained so many ideas from the experience. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with Mr. Damplo and everyone I came across at Lausanne.
What I most appreciate about Lausanne's education professionals is the ability to encourage individuality, creativity and innovation from the students while also demanding integrity and a sense of personal responsibility for one's growth. I feel like my child is getting so much more that academic development, I truly feel that Lausanne shares an extension of my role which is the prepare my child for life as an adult. Thank you all so much for supporting me in the most important job I will ever have.
Wow!!! After nine years at Lausanne we can testify, Lausanne does have the greatest group of teachers and staff!!! You all know who you are…..so many of you throughout the years, always supportive, attentive and willing to go the extra mile to help and encourage, not only our boys, but us. We are very thankful to each of you and we will leave Lausanne this year with the fondest memories and a grateful heart. You have become not only our children’s teachers and staff, but our friends. For the million ways you have helped, thank you and God bless each of you.

Each year we ask each student admitted to MIT to share with us the name of a teacher who has been especially influential in his or her development. It is a remarkable achievement and a great honor to change a life, so we congratulate Mark Page (Lausanne chemistry teacher) on being named this year by Maya Hubbard (Lausanne '09). Most importantly, we thank you for the time, patience, expertise, love, discipline and all the other qualities which have had such an important impacxt on your students. You do the work from which all of society benefits. Congratulations on your excellent work. We at MIT are deeply grateful.

My current writing class teacher used to teach at Yale, and he still teaches the same course at MCA. But thanks to the Lausanne English teachers, I came out with an A on my first essay. I was always told that we were learning to write college level essays, but I never fully appreciated it until I had to write a college essay.
