At my time at Lewis Central I overall enjoyed the experience, it is the school I have gone to my entire life and the only school I know but overall I have felt like my time has been very good at Lewis Central. Lewis Central has offered me many opportunities in life and the ability to have choices and options of what I want to do based on interests for hobbies and classes. Lewis Central is a good school and a school that is very well ran and gives you freedom and responsibilities. If I were to change anything about it, it would be to add even more expansion of activities and interests for even more diversity and choice for students.

I loved the genuine connections I made with some of the teachers I had. I made it through highschool because of the role models I had as teachers.
I also like that you could take college credit courses for free through Lewis Central and Iowa Western. This helped a lot with college because I already had some gen-eds out of the way as a freshman in college.
I think they could be more safe towards their students. In the past few years they remodeled for security, but there's always more to add.
Lewis central high school is a school where you can participate and feel included in everything. My experience at Lewis Central is one I will never forget in my entire lifetime. I have made many connections throughout my high school experience and I look forward to taking the knowledge I’ve gained and using it to the best of my ability in my life. Anyone who comes to this school will have a wonderful high school career!
