Lake Taylor High School Reviews

PERSONALLY I enjoyed my experience at lake Taylor high school. It’s a very tough school socially. If you don’t know your place and say the wrong thing then you’re probably going to get harassed or jumped unfortunately. The teachers and other students are very entertaining, but with a strength in entertainment comes a lack of education. Almost half of the kids that start 9th grade at Lake Taylor don’t get to walk the stage with them in 4 years. There are only a handful of impactful teachers at LTHS. It’s almost as if EVERYONE in that school, doesn’t want to be there. This school needs an environment change if they want to improve their horrible academics. Most of the kids that’s have the potential to go Division 1 in sports either can’t make the grades or get lost in a life of crime. This school focuses way to much on sports rather than student development. One day I hope that I can clean this school up and be able to reach out And inspire the youth there.

Overall Lake Taylor has been a wonderful. I have had my ups and downs, I have fell to the ground, yet picked myself back up. The teachers are wonder, the administration over all are perfect, the counselors make sure they get the job done. Diversity has never been an issue, academics could improve drastically, but their improving.
My experience at Lake Taylor has been nothing more than average. I hoped to engage with children who were as eager to learn as I was, but apparently, that wasn't the case. I'd also like to see the teachers complete the curriculum faster.
