Central Lyon Senior High School Reviews

I really liked how involved all of the teachers are in my academic career along with my athletic career. A small school means that teachers may be multiple sports coaches and or leaders of our extracurricular activities. It is extremely easy to build a bond with a teacher or coach. teachers also do a great job of teaching here at CL. They do not give me my grades easily, but they do encourage me to do my best. Since it is a small school, I have attained having a close-knit class and we have all known each other since kindergarten. Our facilities are one of the best in Northwest Iowa. Our janitors and faculty keep our schools clean and orderly. We also have quite a few clubs to be involved in which have kept me busy during my high school career. Overall, I have had a great high school career.

Something I really liked about Central Lyon was that most of my teachers made themselves readily available for questions. Something that I really found frustrating was the lack of punishment for cheating. It felt very inconsistent, only certain students seemed to be truly punished for it.
I liked the friendly atmosphere, bringing many opportunities iinto my life. The teachers were caring and supportive manking the atmosphere enjoyable.
