Lewis Central Community School District Reviews

I had an overall good experience at Lewis Central. I thought the school offered great classes, they were pretty flexible, and for the most part the teachers and students were friendly and welcoming. If I we to change one thing about this school, it would be parent involvement in school and extra curricular activities. Parents pretty much run the school because no coach or faculty member is going to tell a parent no or ignore them. Everything is very political as well. For example, there were boys who did not get on NHS their junior year because they egged a teachers house. They got on the next year, and when they got suspended that year for drinking and trespassing, they were kicked off then put back on by administration.

Most teachers are caring and straight forward. They go above and beyond to ensure every students education is unique and personnel. Words are meet with corresponding actions. However, parts of the school should not be held to a high standard. It is your typical high school that spends more time on sports than on students well being, ability to have opinions heard, and programs that further college understanding and readiness. The academics that are highly respected are supported well and are publicized. There is a very little diversity. Most of the teachers are their to do good for the students. Some are not as good. There are some that seem to put the selves above the rest of the teachers, including the administration. They seem to be judge, jury, and executioner. They support college readiness of any profession that you make the school look good, not what would make the students feel good. Parents are not supported.
Overall Lewis Central is a Great school! It has great people, amazing teachers, and does all it can to make sure students are prepared for college. If I had to change anything, it would be that we need to do something to stop bullying more. Anytime the administration hears about it the do not do anything to stop it from happening. This has caused many student to transfer. I am not sure I like that. Other than that Lewis Central is a great school!
