I give Lake View Highschool a 3/5 because they have amazing teachers who I have formed great relationships with. Teachers who I have learned so much from! The only negative about this school is the students, I am not a perfect student myself but there are so many students who go for no reason or if they do it is so start a fight. Although Lakeview is a public school I think they should accept kids who actually want to learn and build good relationships with their peers.

Lake View is a school with amazing teachers dedicated to teaching students every day in fun and exciting ways. Everyone in the school is supportive and will help those who ask, no matter who they are. However, the school is supplied with an unfortunately mixed bag of students.
The average student at Lake View is loud, rambunctious, and does not hold staff to high esteem. The school is dragged down by the disrespect and misconduct occurring almost daily, and great pool of students are barely passing classes with credit because of their lifestyle choice. There are a good amount of respectful, diverse, and intelligent students, but, much like every public school, there does exist a vocal minority that constantly causes problems on premises.
I most enjoyed my social memories; such as making friends, participating in extracurricular events; such as competing on the Varsity swim team, and leading as secretary of the Anime Club. I made plenty of friends, a few of which I am still friends with to this day.
Not all the memories were good, but overall, I grew and learned a lot from my mistakes, and the mistakes of others. Struggling through high school as a popular introvert helped me to discover my own self-worth, and to know that I deserve more than what I think I do.
Overall, I loved many of my teachers, and although I attend college on the other side of the country, there are some memories I will never be able to let go of.
