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!

Going through the Lewiston public Schools education system wasn’t always perfect but it definitely was much better than I would have originally thought. Many of the teachers cared about what they were doing even though they didn’t always have the supplies they needed for the class. The schools were very crowded at times but never to the point where a student couldn’t learn. Overall The experience was good for the reputation it has!
I love how diverse Lewiston Public Schools are. It is full of opportunity and welcoming people. There's numerous clubs and activities for students to participate. I am a junior at lewiston High school, a change that needs to be made is students voice. A lot of the time administrators, staffs etc, make dbig decisions without the consent of students. They think they know what's best for us.
