Lemmon School District Reviews

3 reviews
The teachers are great! They REALLY care about their students. I can't say I feel the same about the superintendent. Cuts have been made to ready students for college preparedness. There are few activities other than sports for students. There seems to be plenty of money for a new bus for athletic events or update the basketball court or athletic fields but not to have a librarian in the high school or a guidance counselor to help with college applications. Lunches are so small they won't fill a student up. (How are they supposed to learn with growling bellies). So much possibilities for this district but not until they find someone who wants to lead ALL the students, not just the atheltes. (By the way, i am not opposed to athletics in anyway, just disappointed there isn't more focus on anything but athletics.)

Lemmon School District clearly has put a big emphasis on sports, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. However, I do believe that this district could put some more concern potentially on other aspects of school life, such as other extracurricular activities, a variety of other clubs, and pay better attention to the quality of the music program.
As of right now in the school year 2019-2020 there is a very bad music program and I would love to see that change, I was in music almost my whole high school years and I would love for the kids that are coming up in the world could experience that as well.
