Lapeer Community Schools Reviews

I enjoyed the culture of Lapeer high school. After the two high schools merged, there was a shift from the town being divided into being one united front. There are many clubs and after school activities ranging from Anime club to quiz bowl. These give students the chance to be involved in something more than just academics at Lapeer, which is incredibly important for students. I enjoyed that every teacher employed was genuinely kind hearted and cared about their students and their lives outside of the walls of the school. However, I disliked how academics were handled. Every teacher i had always had and stated the mentality of " You do not need this for the real world. I am only teaching you this because the state requires it." All my general studies classes were based toward taking a multiple choice test, and then forgetting the information and never using it again.

Lapeer community schools are incredible! They have the responsibility of molding thousands of kids into young adults and they do a great job of that. From academic excellence to athletic excellence Lapeer does not disappoint.
Throughout my school experience, I noticed how this school system places money before kids. I've had issues where bullying was not taken seriously, and it did affect my social life for the worse.
Although the schools have some incredible teachers to offer, they were not the majority of teachers, but there were some who prioritized students.
I do have an issue with how they treat students who do not perform well on paper, they have a tendency to forget about students who aren't 3.00 or above, and they have too many programs that require money.
