Lake Central School Corporation Reviews

I am not trying to kiss ass when I say Lake Central is a great school. They offer tons of chances to get ahead on your future, including the number of AP and Dual Credit classes they have open to anyone interested. Our high school also has many programs at for the Career Center for those students interested in futures dealing with nursing, police work, cosmetics, and more! The Career Center gives hand-on experience by putting students in those specific environments to help flourish and develop their skills for those careers. While Lake Central provides great support for the future, I do feel that it should encourage those who aren't in the spotlight. Of course, events like sports get full coverage whenever a big win occurs, but I think the arts should get a tad more attention when it deserves it.

Academically, the school is great. I wish they wouldn’t spend so much of their funding on athletics and would put some of that money towards the arts but I guess that’s an issue many schools have. The building is newly built and can fit all of the 3,200 students comfortably as opposed to the older building. The school has many classes and extracurricular to pick from. Being a part of a large high school, allows for students to find their group of friends. Teachers for the most part are great at what they do and genuinely have a passion for what they do. I haven’t had much experience with the administration so I cannot comment on that.
Lake Central School Corporation is the best school corporation in northwest Indiana. The resources are great. The class options are very diverse and large. There are a large amount of very good athletic teams. The teachers are all very engaged in their classes and teach very well. There are so many clubs anyone is sure to find one they want to join, and if you can't find one it is very easy to start a club of your own. The opportunities at Lake Central are endless.
