Lakeland School District Reviews
As someone who has been within this district my entire school career, I have learned a lot about the ins and outs of the high school. The school is smaller than average but holds a lot of potential inside. I have been able to receive an excellent education as well as dual enrollment that has enabled me to be ahead than most students. They really focus on the quality of the education. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable about their subjects and put in effort to really get to know the students. The administration, however, has difficulty listening to what the students and parents have to say about their education. A lot of funding, it seems, goes towards sports rather than the arts. Often times, other things are thrown underneath the rug and ignored ad well.
I have gone to Lakeland High School for all of my high school career. Most of the teachers are willing to work with you when you have concerns about anything from a project to something in the class that is not working for you. My school has increased safety measures exponentially in the last couple of years as well. The district is determined to keep you safe in a friendly, protected environment, allowing you to study and learn in peace. I would say that everything involving clubs, sports, music, art, and other activities are fairly average in comparison to other schools. This is not a problem by any means; the school works hard to allow students to pursue any extra-curricular activity they want to. If there is a club a student would like to see added to the school's club list, they can petition and collect votes to have a new club made. In recent years, the school has added golf club, anime club, gaming club and a few others. Overall this is a quality school.
Lakeland high school is very well known for their academics. It’s very important to the school that we get good grades, and they reward kids very well for being a good student. Sometimes the sports programs are a little frustrating. As the bigger sports tend to get the most attention, and the other ones feel as if they aren’t heard at all. Our coaches constantly have to push for more benefits. The teachers make up for it though because all of them care very much about the future of their students.
