Lansing Public School District Reviews
My daughter attends a STEM acadamy school through the Lansing SD (Dwight Rich School of the Arts). This is her first year in public school. The teachers and staff are great, but the school is grossly underfunded. Teachers provide snacks for students, the classrooms don't have air conditioning, and they use radiators to heat during winter months. The extra curricular activities are fantastic, and the focus is on the arts, which is wonderful! I do worry about the teachers having large classrooms and being easily burnt out, though. My daughter and I have stayed after to help her teacher because she is so overworked.
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've been attending schools of the Lansing School District since I ever started school. I think the diversity is amazing and there are great teachers, but the amount of teachers are struggling and you can tell. I recently was stuck without an algebra 2 teacher for 2 months and when we finally got one, he was an inexperienced, first timer who did a horrible job preparing my class for the SAT's. So other than putting more effort into serious issues like that, I'd appreciate more renovations, and better food.
