Lancaster High School is essentially a great school with an abundant amount of opportunities. If you go to Lancaster High School, the possibilities are endless. There are multiples clubs such as Spanish club, book club, Greek mythology, and just about anything you could possibly be interested in. Along with multiple clubs, there are wonderful career technical learning opportunities through the Stanberry Career Technical school. For example, I am currently a senior in the Health Tech Prep program, and I have gotten an overwhelming amount of opportunities that have improved my life. Lancaster High School provides students with Ipads, which is a huge step to education at your fingertips. Overall, Lancaster City Schools are truly excellent, and as the high school slogan goes, it truly is "The Place To Be"!

I had a pretty great time in the Lancaster City School District, and really don't have any complaints. Keep up the great work!
I attended a private school in the district but we were not directly related although I was involved in a lot of the Lancaster city school sporting events and used their fields and equipment. I am satisfied with my school district experience.
