Lake Central School Corporation Reviews

I was enrolled in the Lake Central School Corporation from Kindergarten through High School Graduation. Overall, I enjoyed all of the schools and the corporation as a whole. The school were always clean, teachers were helpful, classes were challenging but appropriate, I always felt safe in school, and there were a lot of opportunities to get involved! I would recommend this school corporation to someone from out of the area to ensure that their children will be well taken care of and prepared for life after high school. I am now a College student and I feel that Lake Central did a lot to help me be ready for this!

I had a hard time my freshman year because it was a big change from middle school to high school. I hated my freshman year! It got better every year. My best year at LC was my Junior year. Senior year is sad right now because of Covid. The school is beautiful and we have many resources that other schools don't have. The school is about 8 minutes away from my house. I'm involved in theater and our facility is amazing and we are very lucky to have that. Most of my teachers were very good. The only thing that I really don't like about LC is that the school mainly cares about sports and the athletes. The school "bows down" to the athletes and it just annoyed me because there are so many other important things in this school that matter.
I actually enjoyed my experience at Lake Central High School. I think nearly all the teachers are extremely hard working and passionate about their jobs. I hear a lot of complaints mostly by students about Lake Central, but I think most of the complaints are overreactions. I would just say the students are what can make LC's experience unenjoyable. I think there is such a wide variety of classes and opportunities there. They take many precautions to make sure students are happy and safe. The theatre facility is also amazing. For the most part I haven't had many hardships with my experience at Lake Central, but that is just me.
