I love Labette County! There were so many outstanding opportunities that I had the chance to be involved in, including 6 clubs, 2 national conferences, band, sports events, and volunteering in the community. The teachers are like my friends and they genuinely care about their students and our future. My band director, Mr. Hundley, is currently helping me view my future career option as being a band teacher for secondary schools. The college courses that I have taken have prepared me for college, and I even took some courses at Coffeyville Community College and the level of education that I had from Labette County has really shown me that I am ready for college.

I started going to public school my freshman year, before I had been homeschooled. My dad is a teacher at the high school so I felt fairly comfortable with the transition, but I was worried about how I would be accepted by the students. However, there was no need to worry because all of the students were extremely kind and welcoming. LCHS provides a wide range of activities that suit a diverse crowd of students. I personally am involved with FCA, FFA, NHS, Choir, Student Council and Student Ambassadors. There are countless opportunities for LCHS students to grow as leaders and members of our community. Our school provides us with volunteer and leadership camps to attend. We have amazing teachers that truly care about the students and wish to see us succeed. My time at LC has definitely prepared me for my future.
I loved LCHS, everyone is so friendly and helpful! The teachers and counselors really care about the students. The classes are small, which helped me learn the material. I recommend it!
