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"!

Lancaster City schools have many opportunities, especially when you get to high school. They allow students to explore their interests and figure out what truly makes them happy. What I would like to see change is the attitude of some of the teachers. Yes, young adults can be difficult to deal with, but having a negative, condescending teacher will not help the students improve and become the best they can be.
It's alright. Teachers aren't the greatest or most helpful. Administration is very nice and helpful. Food is alright. The sports teams have the potential, some need new coaches.
