Lewiston High School is a very diverse and community oriented school. There are 1400 students here, however most all of the students know each other. Here at LHS the students are able to show their creativity by displaying murals on the walls and also showcasing graphic designs. There are so many opportunities for students to shine and think about the future. My high school also provides so much help with the college process. That is something that has helped me prepare for life after high school. I loved attending this high school and will miss it greatly!

While my own experience was very good, I can see why others would say otherwise. If you don't find your niche, you aren't going to have a good time. Even then, it is frustrating that most of the extra funds go towards athletics. As a basement dweller (music and arts) student, it was frustrating that the music department had to raise all our money on our own, and how the art teachers have to buy almost all their own supplies. Lewiston has amazing performers and artists - give them the funds to do good work!
I have been a student in the Lewiston Public School system from kindergarten through grade 12 and obviously there are always things to complain about as there is with any school system, but overall I would not have wanted to attend anywhere else. The teachers are involved and caring, the students are good kids, and there's plenty of things to be involved in for every type of student. The schools are large and very diverse, not just racially, allowing for interaction with every type of person. The high school is affiliated with a technical center that is right on campus allowing career-oriented opportunities for students. Many students leave feeling prepared for college and the real world.
