I started attending Central Lyon in 3rd grade and have always loved it here. Central Lyon has so many opportunities for their students. I have been involved in so many different activities from being a helping out on the football team to participating in mock trial. I've had the best years of my life happen at this school, and this is why I give it a 5 star rating.
Central Lyon is definitely the best school in the area. That being said, there are lots of improvements that could be made. For example, reversing the whole Michelle Obama school lunch thing would be great. This school needs to focus less on gaining funding and more on the students.
