Lincoln Way Community High School District No. 210 Reviews
Here, Opportunities are given to each student. We learn in a safe, clean, and welcoming environment. I believe my school is an excellent example of a well organized learning place. Everything here is clean, up to date, & properly inspected. If a student appears to be struggling academically, every effort is made to help the student succeed. There are many activities to get involved in, most of which are fit for each students specific likings. One thing I would change is the lack of diversity. There are barely any students of color, nor do they get represented during black history month. I find that teachers give kids of color harsher punishment purely because they are considered a minority. If more represtation was provided, along with an immense amount of exposure to other cultures, students would be more willing to commemorate and work together. Discrimination would be lower while creating a better inclusive environment.
At first I went to Central and I LOVED it! ALL of the staff was incredible. They always strived to make sure you succeeded. Not only were they there to mentor and teach me, but I also formed relationships with my teachers that most schools don't have. However, when LWN closed down due to district debt, I ended up attending LWW. Now I can only speak for myself but I can strongly say that LWW was not nearly as good as LWC. ALL of the sports are very politically driven in terms of who gets playing time, who makes the team, etc. In addition to politically formed sports teams, the staff also did not measure up to LWC's standards. As far as I know, very few students, if any, had any relationship with any of their teachers. This was a very heartbreaking experience for me. Not necessarily speaking about all the teachers, just simply the majority didn't really care how well you did. They obviously wanted everyone to succeed but there was definitely a lack of enthusiasm along the way
Now I am a Senior, but I transferred to the Lincoln Way Community High School District as a Sophomore in 2016. The transition was scary because I was coming from a private Christian school in Lansing, Illinois. The largest amount of students was about 500, so anyone can imagine my fear of attending a large school with about 3,000 students. Lincoln Way East had amazing communication, encouragement, guidance, and organization. This made the transition much easier. The clubs and activities are so diverse, and more is being added every year. The resources and possibilities at Lincoln Way East are limitless. The only things that I would like to change are the food and the prices. I believe that there should be more healthy options, and lower prices. Eating healthy is not easy here, and there are almost no vegan options. Yes, there is always the option of bringing your own lunch, but it is more timely and efficient to have healthier options available at the school.
