It was pretty good! The teacher's are very involved in all the activities, the students tend to do a lot together outside of school, and the administration keeps the school very safe. The classes are at a higher level, but the teachers are always very willing to give any student extra help. There is a club for everyone so it's almost impossible to not be involved in something. However, if you're not ready to be a high achiever you will struggle a lot to fit in because LPHS is definitely a high school for high achieving, hard-working individuals; and the teachers and administrators except this too.

I have always had to move every couple of years, so it was nice to have a chance to stay at a school for all years. I have made amazing friends; however, there is an incredible amount of bullying that happens, but no one reports. It’s hard to see a friend that has a hard time, so I would love to see teachers asking there students if anything has happened. I also love most of the classes I take, but I don’t agree with all of the high school requirements. Schools should be based off of what a student want to do in the future, and trying to make that student succeed with that particular career or college in mind. Overall, I have made friends that care for me a lot and I have completed the basics for the college I would like to go into.
I think the culture and administration in this district are very limiting. The administration does little to please the students and appeal to their individualism and school spirit through student led events and ideas. However, the academics in this district are beyond expectations. Many students take college courses and earn credits before attending a university. The athletics are a welcoming environment and offer a chance for students to get recognized to play at the college level.
