Lake County Schools Reviews

I enjoyed being a part of the many activities that are available at lake county schools. I did not feel like I was not welcome or that I did not belong. Being here actually changed who I am as a person and the connections I've made with the people around me have been life-changing. Obviously, no one absolutely adores school work but I felt like the clubs and activities gave me motivation to complete it and try my best academically. The teachers have also been very nice and have helped me through my studies. There is a lot of diversity within the education methods though there is always room to improve. Possibly more hands on opportunities could improve this factor. The school I attended specifically was very accepting and had a nice atmosphere of support. When it came to college preparation, there was plenty of information and opportunities to get aid. The faculty at times were hard to reach because of the amount of students though when they were available, they were very helpful.

Lake county schools, is an average rating school. There seems to be a lack of auhtorative leadership that students need, staff and teachers have been a little too "laid back". They accustomed a lassie-fair leadership style in which students do not thrive of. Leading too rebellious and disruptive behavior in class and on school campus. Most lake county schools are not offering allot of sports or club options.
I’ve spent my twelve years of schooling within the lake county school district, while for the most part I had a great high school experience especially, there are things this county can improve on. My high-school is now a digital discovery school, as an online flex student my self I found the addition helpful to complete my course work faster. I also had the chance to be an inaugural member of our schools first winter guard, an amazing experience I will not forget. Even though, there are several art clubs and events throughout the year, there are improvements to be made. For example the auditorium is extremely outdated and needs to updated, though the schools beatification is improving due to the addition of several murals.
