Lawrence Public Schools Reviews
They are very generous with cold and snow days! They are very patient and make sure that students know the curriculum. Sometimes the food is very gross but they make sure everyone is capable of eating. I think the best thing about Lawrence public schools is they make sure every single student is involved. It is so diverse and I love meeting people from different cultures.
I went to Abbott Lawrence Academy which is an exam school in the district. My review is based on that school because it is not listed (as it is relatively new). I was able to take college classes at Merrimack College, starting in Junior year of high school. Overall it was a good experience and the school has a close relationship with YDO (Youth Development Organization) that has served me and my peers well.
I go to the Lawrence High School but my siblings have all been to a public school in Lawrence.Every school is different. Some are really strict, others are a little less lenient. Lawrence High School is a really big school. Each grade has approximately 700 students. It is hard to keep security everywhere all the time. There is enough staff, they offer many electives, the music and theater electives are amazing and give students the opportunity to learn about many different instruments and parts of the voice, etc. Most times there isn't enough books for everyone because even though it is such a big school it is not supported economically by the state. Students are very lively and friendly.
