The schools, themselves, are making progress to be better. The problem is the school board....They do not communicate with parents. Their goals are scores, not educating. The district has wonderful teachers, but the school board and president need to be replaced...

I loved Lawrence county while i attend it! I met great friends and built strong relationships with them! The teachers were great too, then helped you in anyways they could!
I have attended Lawrence County High School for four years. I have learned a lot attending this school. The teachers are always willing to help you if you have problems. I also got to take many dual enrollment classes for college. Therefore, I have many classes out of the way when I start college. The athletic program at LCHS is remarkable. I have cheered for four years. I attend every football and basketball team. Although our teams are not the best in the state, everyone tries their best and we have fun doing it. LCHS also has many clubs and organizations to be involved in. I feel when I graduate, I will miss being a senior at Lawrence County High School.
