La Grande School District Reviews

The community is good. There are events quite often. There are monthly school board meetings. I have heard complaints that some of the schools are a little dirty. technology wise we have started upgrading every year. At the high school there are Chromebooks for each section of the school. We have electronic reader boards and updated clocks and speaker systems. The teachers, staff, and administration have been working more and more towards helping the students feel accepted and loved. Personally I believe the biggest problem in our school district is the fact that we are still very conservative. People still have some problems with the LGBTQ+ communities, so those students are always represented or accepted like they should be,

I really liked the community involvement and support around and in the school. I am part of a lot of school sports and activities and the community support that came with the championship run we made in football from the teachers, administration and people around the community was amazing. The school teachers helped us when we would miss school for games and the support before we won was just as amazing as it was before we won.
The band program is fantastic, I’ve spent three years in it so far. The staff however can be cold and not understanding. Mental health awareness is poor. As someone with a bipolar disorder I do need help sometimes and some of the teachers were not willing to communicate with me to solve issues.
