Traditional high school experience! Smaller school, but still as an regular school. My time there was great! Made many friends and had lots of fun growing up along with these individuals.

I’ve been in this high school throughout my entire high school career and overall, it’s a pretty average school. They offer a lot of different advanced courses which is great considering it’s a really small school. Sports and band are a big deal - among students- but I would say that ultimately, band students (or at least the leaders) are more successful at gaining recognition and winning awards.
The administration has been really amicable and helpful for as long as I can remember. All of the Ap are really nice and the principal is very dedicated to his job. The counselors do their job and are also very friendly and easy to talk to. But they’re always busy.
The college advisor is someone who is thorough and helps you get things done. He is also very knowledgeable and genuine. He will never get annoyed at anyone for asking a question.
In the end, lake worth is my home and i will look back at my high school years with fondness even if it’s an average school.
Attending lake worth has allowed me to create wonderful connections due to it being a small but because it is so small, there aren’t enough organizations or clubs or activities that allow students to experience the full high school experience.
