Lake Region Union High School Reviews

Lake Region is nice because it is a small school but it can also be terrible because it IS such a small school. Drama goes around like crazy. If you do anything everybody will have heard about it by the end of the day. The principal is a good guy, atleast to me he was. He takes the time to learn everybodys name and he always says hi whenever he sees you. The academics are okay. They offer AP classes which are useful for college. They have a shared career center with North Country, which is pretty cool. But to get into it you have to clear your scheduale untill 4th period. You get to know everybody around.

Lake Region was a great high school to attend in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. For the resources available, students can expect to be prepared for the rigor of college studies if they apply themselves in high school. There aren't a lot of clubs available, but it is possible to create new ones, and participation in clubs already at the school can be very rewarding. The faculty is very supportive and encouraging.
Going to school at Lake Region is different for any student who walks through the doors. Some say it's the best time of their lives. I personally disagree. It's alright going to LR. The teachers are overall very educated and teach the material well. However it is such a small school and has very little money to spend. I have felt limited because of this. Some schools offer courses I cannot take at LR. To me that's not really okay. The food is kind of iffy, and the students range from super nice to extremely rude. We do however, have one of the best principles a school could ask for. Andre Messier is an amazing principle, and he stands up for an arguement. Even if it's one you've asked him to make for you. He stands by his students and faculty like a loyal dog. The school strives to make the bad aspects of the school better, and we are making progress every year.
