Lee County School District Reviews

The schools in this district don't have the most money. They get by on what they have and try to make the most of it. The teachers do their very best to make sure that we comprehend the reticulum. They help us work towards amazing goals to open more chances and opportunities than we could ever imagine. I am very grateful for all that they sacrifice to make my life all the better. There are lots of students who pay no mind to the advantages that they have with their grades, support, and future, but they should realize what they have and use it to their benefit. They can get into great programs and colleges. It all starts with their resources and the districts who supply it.

I absolutely loved attending my high school. It was a great environment to learn in, and the teachers were amazing.
I think Lee County school district could be better, there is always room for improvement. Most of our teachers do there job, but there is still too much free time from bell to bell. I want to be challenged in class while learning the things I need for college.
