Very close minded school. Most of the teachers are kind, but you can’t be different here without repercussions or bullying.

The town is extremely rural and out-of-the way, so there is not much to do in the town around the school. However, the school itself offers a solid education, and it is homey enough so that you can make a lot of friends very quickly, which is a good thing. Not much in variety of extra curricular courses or activities, but the ones that they do have are tons of fun.
What I like about Lanier County is that the school isn’t too big. You aren’t overwhelmed with so many people as you would be st a 6a school. Something I would like to see change is more people participating in dual enrollment. It is a great opportunity for students.
