Lancaster Central School District Reviews
For me going to Lancaster High school has been one of the most instrumental stages of my life. I was home schooled up to 9th grade and the switch to Lancaster gave me the opportunity to grow and find out who I want to be. Many of the people I met including faculty and teachers have become like a second family to me and I will be sad to leave when I graduate. I am very involved in the Art department especially and can not speak highly enough of the teachers and programs like the arts academy and stage crew. I can't imagine where I would be or even who I would be without the experiences I have had at Lancaster. It has helped so much in my decisions about going into art in college. However I know not all the other kids have had as great an experience as me, I only wish that Lancaster could be more united and give the experience I had to as many people as possible. This is what I wanna try to help do in my last few months of high school!
The district, especially high school, give students several different opportunities to be able to engage in activities in and outside of the school. However, it is not very diverse. They also recently separate ties from Naviance. This is making the college application process much harder, especially with the lack of communication with our in-school counselours.
Overall it is a very well rounded school. The ability to specialize in academies such as business, technology, and leadership really help to prepare students for a college career. All teachers are more than willing to stay after and are readily available if help is needed. It is a larger public school that ranges in academic challenges. Many honors and AP classes are offered to students who feel they can be pushed further and pursue the challenges. Outside of academics there are many clubs on campus. Sports such as soccer, football, and baseball are very prevalent. Teams are competitive and many times students have to go through rounds of tryouts due to the size of the student body. Additionally, the school has a new music program and actively performs in the community.
