Lake Fenton High School was a good school, but I feel they were lacking when it came to education. There are of course some teachers that are really good and have a passion for teaching, but there are a lot of teachers who are lazy and do not seem to know the material as well as they should. They are very big on safety which was comforting. They also offer a wide range of clubs for kids to join and meet new people. So I rate Lake Fenton High School 3 stars because they were not all they hype themselves up to be and I believe I could have gotten a better education somewhere else.

Lake Fenton High School is a small community, but has a very well rounded district. There are students from around the world visiting our school, but the one place where I would like us to get better at as a school would be safety. A couple areas where we prosper in the classroom due to the fact that we have resources that we can use to get anything accomplished. Another area we excel at is in athletics where we have great coaches and players that are willing to learn and get better. All in all, Lake Fenton is a fantastic school that gets students ready for college, but we could use some increased safety around the building.
My experience at Lake Fenton High School has very good. The school is small but there are many activities for students to get involved in. Our marching band is the largest group in our school. Almost 1/4, if not more of the students are part of the band. Our athletics are always competitive. The one thing that I would change would be the ability to have a variety of classes offered. Because the school is small, there is not a variety of speciality classes offered.
