L&N STEM Academy Reviews
I have been going to L&N all 4 years of my high school career, and I have to say- there could not have been a better school for me. There is so much that is amazing and cutting-edge about my school that I would not trade my experience here for anything. I have amazing friends and teammates and classmates and feel like I'm involved in my own little community while being treated at an adult level by the staff and teachers. If you live anywhere in east Tennessee, pick L&N!
Throughout my past 4 years attending, it has maintained the same, rigorous academic challenges for learning. The faculty and staff are constantly there to help you any way they can. I love this school because it allows you to truly own your learning, no one is telling you whether you have to do assignments or not, they let you make these choices. Having that much freedom truly develops strong, hard-working, and time manageable students. Throughout my senior classes, we have had past alumni come by and talk with their favorite teachers, while talking to us students as how a specific classes we are taking helped them in college, as well as how the school's atmosphere and freedom truly prepared them to succeed in their college. Because of this school, I will be able to further my education with full readiness and preparedness in college.
Experiencing L&N STEM Acadmey junior and senior year, I realized what I wanted to do in the Stem field-Computer Science. Because the school offered not only Computer Science but also Computer Principles, I was comfortable in two Computer languages-Java and Python. Not only did the school help me find my major, but the acadmey got me involved with clubs, such as JCL, that I would have never considered back at my old high school. I would, however, want the school to apply more technology, through the County School System, in order to live up to being a STEM school.
