I attended J.W Sexton High school and I must say, the staff and teachers are incredible! The staff and teachers made my experience at Sexton incredible and memorable. I didn't like how rules weren't enforced at Sexton and students often got away with a lot of unnecessary actions. There isn't much diversity due to Sexton having a bad reputation, however the school is great! The students can be a bit harsh, but many things in life will be! The food is great and they offer a nice variety of options. I would recommend becoming a Sexton Big Red!

I as come into new country in USA and live in Lansing, MI. I really like about Lansing school districts is more different culture are coming in and meeting a new people around the worlds. They have different culture that I am interested to learn about other and also learn English in the Lansing school district as in Lansing Eastern High School. Lansing school district is nothing like other schools around the Lansing. They have more different culture and people. I am very happy to see a lot of different people are being friends to each other and as I am one of them. I go to Lansing school district boundaries 5th to 12th grade. What I want to see the change from district or in Eastern high school. The food that they serve are need more better food.
My experiences with the Lansing School District were very mixed. The variety of classes you could take was nice, some of which I enjoyed very much, others not so much. There was a good variety of sports and other after-school activities. However, the physical side of the experience was very poor. The school was constantly filthy. There was so much dirt and graffiti everywhere. And the security guards just seemed to simply not care about their job. They would not break up the constant fighting, and would instead just ignore it. The teachers seemed like they genuinely cared about student education, however the upper administration seemed like they were only there for a paycheck. Overall my experience with the LSD was average at best. I would certinely have to look into other options before I decided to send one of my kids there.
