Lorena Independent School District Reviews

Lorena is a competitive school district academically, that has great teachers and amazing programs. Lorena has a big emphasis on sports and their athletes. They have two gyms and a lot of the teachers are also coaches. The classes are 20 students, which creates an intimate and personal learning experience. The teachers are very involved and hands-on with the students. Lorena is very old-fashioned in their values and rules. The dress code is very strict and sets high standards for girls and boys.Most of the teachers form bonds with students that even exceed the four years of high school. A lot of students return from college to sit in on classes or eat lunch with their favorite teachers. Lorena has also created a generational community, many of the teachers attended Lorena, as well as many parents and grandparents.

It is rare to find a teacher on campus that does not care deeply about their job in one way or another. Almost all of them are passionate about the subjects they teach and go out of their way to make sure students thrive. However, I have noticed many situations in which GPA and overall grades are valued over the mental health of the student body. Campus is always clean. The food in the cafeteria is mediocre and lacks much variety. The dress code is not always fairly upheld. Overall, my experience at Lorena has been fairly good.
It is a safe community and a very nice school district. The staff is very caring to you and always care. They make sure you are getting your education and being above and beyond! The food is good and does not taste like the "school food" everyone says on the internet or movies. It is a nice community with helping parents and nice friendships!
