Lawson R-XIV School District Reviews

As an involved senior at Lawson R-XIV High School, I witness many different types of students. Going into high school, my one goal I set for myself was to try and be friends with everyone. Easy to do when you only have a high school of 400. That would get me well known with people I would not have seen on a general day to day basis. The one main reason I did that was because I've heard stories upon stories of how alumni went through high school only knowing the people they had been friends with their whole lives; they didn't give many people a chance. An onset of that is because faculty does not encourage students to go out of their way to try and step out of their comfort zones. One thing that has evolved at LHS is the fact that schooling is more important than sports are, even though those are still strongly encouraged. Faculty are also trying to persuade students who have no interest at going to college, but love to work, to go to trade school.

I've had a great time at LHS! It's a small town so you're life is always known about and things travel fast. But the bright side to that is everyone knows everyone! I know almost everyone in the school and can talk to any of the teachers and administrators. Everyone rallies together whether it be football or a choir concert and that's the one thing I love most!

Somethings that could be changed is our diversity. We have a few new students during the year but I think we could do a lot more growing!
Lawson is an awesome community to go to school in. I was apart of Lawson School District for all of my schooling. The community is tight-knit. Teachers and faculty and staff get to know your name and want to see you succeed. The community rallies together when someone is in need. When teams advance, the whole town gets together for them and sends them out in parade fashion. There is plenty of clubs and ability to get involved in whatever you're interested in. Teachers are there to help you prepare for your next step and always help you. If they don't know the answer they'll find someone who does and get it to you.
