I highly recommend my high school to others who are considering enrolling in my community! This high school has vast resources to prepare students for college education and trade schools. The guidance counselors are very helpful to set you on the right path to succeed and pursue your goals. There are very useful classes that allow students to take advantage of achieving college credit before graduating from high school. The teachers at this high school are very helpful to give you many resources to succeed in the class and become prepared for higher-level classes. There are multiple clubs at Lake Central for students to be more involved in school and create more friendships.

I love Lake Central! The building has been remodeled and is spectacular. We are provided with endless opportunities through our technology and a wide range of classes. The teachers and staff are incredible and are always looking out for us, the students. Lake Central has prepared me for college, my career, and my life beyond.
Super happy with my son's outcome with Lake Central! They are both have been students in the system since preschool. They both had special situations that the system accommodated. They both participated in various activities, made many great friends, met great coaches, great teachers and other leaders of the community. I couldn't be prouder of our school system. Great job LC!
