Lansing Public School District Reviews

I’ve been a student in the Lansing Public School District since I was in Kindergarten up to my current senior year in high school. Like in every school district there are ups and downs, but overall I wouldn’t have wanted to attend any other district. Being apart of the Lansing Public School District has given me many opportunities I wouldn’t otherwise have. If a student attends a Lansing Public High school for all 4 years they are eligible to receive the Lansing Promise scholarship. This ensures 2 years free at Lansing Community College, or money towards Olivet College or Michigan State University. This is an amazing opportunity! This school district also has student diversity like no other school I’ve seen before. For these reasons I’m proud to have attended the Lansing Public School District.

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 like my school because that's where I started my first school in the U.S. I meet a lot of nice staff and teacher that help guided me through my hardest time. They also recognized to award me for my hard works which shows that they care about their students. It's a pretty diverse school that we have everyone came from most parts of the world. However, there are a lot of things that we're not doing so well compare to other school such as the academic and sports, but there are a lot of people that are truly care about their education and there also a lot of potential athletes that we have at our school.
