Lake Station Community Schools Reviews

My experience at lake station schools began my mid freshman year. I transferred from my previous school, due to unplanned circumstances. At lake station, the teachers showed empathy towards their students and prepared them for post high school. They would even sacrifice their personal time to tutor you if you were in jeopardy of falling behind your peers. I also was a three sport athlete like my athletes at the low populated school. My success came mostly from my wrestling asset. Before coming to lake station, I had never been involved in organized sports or clubs. That made me more out-going and diligent.

I very much enjoy the community of Lake Station and the people are very respectful and honorable.I enjoy this school so much because its a very different atheistic from other school. I switched my senior year to Lake Station. because I moved to this wonderful area.I don’t think I have any complications at this school besides the food. The food could be be better but everything else makes up for it,the teachers are very kind and service you with the upmost help.
My experience with Lake Station Community Schools was quite average and not very challenging. While I did have a few amazing teachers who taught the curriculum exceptionally and made sure I succeeded, I feel that overall my experience was not very challenging and motivating and that I was cheated out of my education. I loved how close-knitted the community was, though. Everyone was generally kind to one another.
