In my two years of attending this school, I’ve felt welcomed by the students and staff alike. I believe that this school has wonderful teachers and a wide variety of resources for students to challenge themselves (such as AP and college courses) and be prepared for higher education. However, I feel like the school really needs to work on informing parents and students about upcoming events and activities. I’ve personally met some students that would have been very excited about certain clubs and events had they known they existed. With that said, I believe that this school has a lot of potential and is heading in the right direction and I hope to see it improve in my last year of high school.

Growing up in the central lee school district, I have attended central lee my whole life. It was a great little small town school where teachers truly care about students and their education. Their academics were some of the highest in the state.
I can't rave about this school enough. Most of the parents don't push their kids super hard when it comes to schoolwork, mainly because the kids have it under control. Show Choir and Football are by far the two most celebrated clubs to join. Almost every parent and kid in school goes to every one of these two groups' events. Our school is pretty unique, seeing as since it's a farm school, there is "Ag Week" where various events go on, including "Drive Your Tractor to School Day." The school is also very involved in the community and vice versa. That's the good thing about having a smaller school. Everyone knows everyone. The only bad thing I can think of, is that the parents in this school blame the principal for everything bad that may happen, regardless if the conflict was within her power to prevent or not. I would hate to go to any other school.
