What I have experienced with Lake View is that it has such a diverse atmosphere that allows you to get to know people so easily. Along with the various extracurricular activities that the school has to offer, finding your place in the school is not much of a problem. As a senior currently attending the school, I'd say that college preparation for the students is done pretty well. Teachers encourage students to work on FAFSA, provide coaching for college applications and scholarships, have one-on-on workshops to keep you on track, and other forms of help for college. The teachers at Lake View are very kind and helpful overall. Math was a subject that I never really liked, but one of the teachers really pushed me to sort of like the subject a little bit more and I appreciate that. Lake View High School really is a home away from home.
I thought I was coming to Lake View for an education, but I got so much more than that: friendship, independence, support, guidance and a push when I needed. Lake View High School has prepared me for college more than I had expected. What I went through in my childhood, did not stop me from becoming the person I am today. I will be able to use all the skills I have learned here throughout college, and beyond my college career, such as time management, study skills, leadership skills, stress management and communication skills. This school was like my second home, I spend more time in school than my actual home because I was involved in multiple sports and club. This year, our school got a new football field and remodel inside the building. Every year this school is improving and that's what we the students want to see.
