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 a great school to go to education wise. The teachers teach well for the most part, but lack a connection with the minority students. I myself haven’t been able to connect with some of the teachers because the staff isn’t diverse. There aren’t many teachers of color, and it makes it a lot harder for students of color to connect with teachers that didn’t go through some of the experiences that they went through. Also the way they treat some of the racist situations could be handled better. Students who say things that degrade people of color don’t get the punishment that they deserve, but instead get a slap on the wrist. It’s a good school, with poor qualities.
Lenape High School is outdated in its structure, and its treatment of students.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.
