Lockport City School District Reviews

18 reviews
All Categories
A small district in a blue collar rust belt town (former GMC Auto stronghold). With the city rebranding itself as a tourist destination (Erie Canal, Underground Railroad, Niagara Wine Trail, junior hockey league tournaments, etc.) and technology hub (Challenger Learning Center, Yahoo Headquarters), the district is trying to stress education as a gateway to success instead of the lesser man's option to the rigors of industrial work. Unfortunately, most families still struggle with income, which puts them at a disadvantage when educating students & parents on college preparedness.

I have been attending Lockport High School for four years. The very best thing about this District is its teachers! They are there for YOU! I have always felt comfortable seeking out help, advice or just spending my study hall with various teachers throughout my lifetime of attending this District. I am a member in the Forum school yearbook and this also affords me more insight into the School District and how it's run. I feel very lucky to have had the chance to attend Lockport Schools for my entire academic career and would not hesitate to recommend the Lockport School District to new incoming residents.
3 out of 5 for academic reasons and for dealing with their no bully policy. I have been bullied on numerous occasions and the teachers did nothing about it. There is no parent involvement whatsoever in the schools and that should be changed. Bring your own lunch to school. Food is often severely undercook or overcook and they freeze their milk when you're not suppose to freeze milk, making the milk bad in the process. The school district couldn't make enough money that eventually everyone got a free or reduced lunch in the entire district for the first time two years ago. There is also a lead problem that the school doesn't seem want to fix. It was even on the news that the lead content in the drinking water at local schools in Western New York has reached the beyond the lead limit and is considered unsafe to drink. Many students began bringing their own drinks to their classes.
