LOHS offers many clubs and activities in my opinion. But a lot of the time the teachers only care about the students who are popular and not really wanting to go to college and are just plan lazy “they do nothing about it!” This school is overall has a very good selection of people to hangout with. There are people from the hood, nerds, mean girls, snobs and friendly peers. But overall not very good not terrible!

My experience at Lake Orion High School wasn't a bad at all. First, Lake Orion High School has one of the best educations that you could receive. They have so many college and honor courses available. There sports are excellent as well. There sports are well funded and the school has produced so many sport championships and professional athletes. Though the school has ups there are things that could be changed. First, the bathrooms at the school are not functioning well. None of the bathroom sinks work in the women's facilities. Second, the arts, I came from a school that had an orchestra. When I transferred schools it came to my attention that they didn't have an orchestra. Even though the school doesn't have an orchestra that doesn't mean the arts are lacking. The school has an award wining marching band and choir, so the school still has a great arts program.
Lake Orion High School is a very unique and interesting school. The class size is usually around 600+ kids, making our school bigger than average. While this may seem like an issue, it actually makes the high school experience more exciting. There are so many new people to meet and make friends with.
Our school also has an outstanding leadership program. The leadership class hosts many events that help unite not only the students of the high school, but the whole Lake Orion Community together. I am a leadership student and I enjoy how even though age divides us into different schools, there are still so many opportunities to connect with each other. For example, we host science fairs and career fairs where little kids come to the high school and interact with the high school students about cool science projects or about their future career.
I think that Lake Orion High School is a great school and I wouldn't ever want to go to another high school.
