I like how safe it is and it's very diverse. The campus is nice. We are now in the process of building a new school. The teachers and students are nice. Everyone gets along. It's a mellow family feeling. I enjoy attending. The sports teams are great. As well as the choir. I love choir. I have met some great people that I love very much, my friends. It's a small to so everyone knows each other. We're all one big dysfunctional family.

The Lee County School I attended has the potential to be a good school. Very few teachers had the maturity to handle their jobs and the school flooded twice when I was there. The administration tended to be disrespectful with the students and put coaches in teaching positions they were unqualified for. If the school focused on the staff and academics more than athletics then the school as a whole would benefit.
My experience as a student at Beauregard High School is great at times but we do need help on approving our time on testing such as standardize test which affected a lot of students who took the ACT at my school. If that can change it would allow a lot more students accepted in schools.
