Laurens County School District No. 55 Reviews
Laurens High School is small enough to where teachers can personally help you succeed, but also large enough to where you can always make new friends. The teachers and administration want, more than anything, for their students to succeed. Go raiders!
Teachers are amazing, but the current leadership is barely competent at best. It is a friendly school district, but I do not personally recommend sending your children to the school district's schools. In weaker sections of the community, the schools have poor conditions and need renovations and upgrades badly! More funding would be ideal if more people would move there. However, it is a small rural area, so that is highly unlikely.
There are many good things about LDHS. The staff and teachers are overall very good and do what they can to help see their students succeed. Not only that, but the courses and material available for students is very good. You are available to take classes that may challenge you, that you are interested in, and classes that count towards college such as dual enrollment and AP courses. One thing that I believe should be improved the most is the safety there. They were working hard to improve that and took steps that benefited the student safety before I left, but there is still work to be done at a school that size containing that amount of students. It isn't always easy to manage and control the amount of students that we have and we all know that, but I know that if there were a shooting or another instance of that sort that the majority of the students didn't feel as safe as they should. Overall, LDHS is great but just like any other high school, there is still more to be done.
