Lenape Regional High School District Reviews
The LRHSD is a comparatively high-achieving district that offers an array of AP and Honors classes that many other public schools do not. Many of the district's students attend excellent universities following graduation; mostly everyone attends some type of college. The student bodies themselves vary slightly among the individual high schools; however, an overall district theme could be described as All-American culture: the typical high school experience that you see in movies. There are various extra-curricular activities, each which serve a different type of person, but essentially, sports dominate to the point that funding for the musical programs are cut short in order to ensure that the football team has enough funding (as if they don't)! Diversity is also extremely lacking in probably all of the schools except for Lenape. Overall, though, the district is good for the standards of public schools.
Lenape High School is outdated in its structure, and its treatment of students. Administration does not provide the proper support and care that high school students need. Teachers construct their lessons based off of curriculum, with little originality or adaptability to include all learning styles. The school itself is overpopulated, there is a severe bullying/harassment problem among students, and anxious and depressed students are not given the resources they need in a building that prompts high stress. The building itself has no air conditioning, there is very little parking available to students, and the facilities have not been updated in a very long time. Bathrooms and water fountains are the same as they were 20+ years ago.
I love how rigorous their program is. The teachers really care about their students, and they were really on top of us our freshman year. Later on during highschool the teachers eased up on us and weren’t really on top of us to prepare us for college. The teachers washing up on us really prepared us for college because in reality no one is going to coddle you and you really have to learn how to be independent. The professors expect you to go to them if you need help with anything, so you really have to think for yourself. Cherokee helped us with this because the teachers offered extra help during our lunchtime and sometimes after school. Cherokee also helped us prepare for college because of the many graduation requirements. These graduation requirements helped us stand out more than other college applicants because we were forced to take more courses than per usual, or we had to take another year of a specific course. .
