Lorain City School District Reviews

Lorain City Schools is overall lackluster. Teachers care about student success but some students do not care about academics, thus affecting the scores. The students in specific schools in the district affect the safety rating. However, most schools in the area have teachers that absolutely care about student success. Lorain City Schools shows that one bad apple does not always spoil the bunch.

My experience at Lorain City Schools did not start out very memorable. All throughout elementary my teachers were great but once I got to middle school there were only a few teachers that I liked and was learning from. After completing, the 6th grade I transferred to a small charter school called Horizon Science Academy. At this school, I stayed for the rest of middle school and half of my high school career. My junior year I transferred back to Lorain City School District. I have now been here for two years, my senior year has been great thus far and I know that it is only going to get better. I am very involved in extracurricular activities, Lorain High offers a number of activities, clubs, and sports for students to join. Along with this, I have made many great connections with my teachers and other faculty members at this school. I have taken college courses throughout my entire high school career and Lorain High offers classes right at the building.
I had some amazing teachers throughout my time in Lorain City Schools. There were some things that administration people were more concerned about, like dress code and state test scores, when they should have been more worried about the actual education students were receiving. Overall though I had an diverse and educational experience growing up in Lorain City Schools.
