Lake Worth High was an excellent school to attend. When I attended the school in 2008, the school was nationally ranked in sports, academics, choirs, and band. Most of the teachers were there to help their student thrive. There was a lot of after-school activities, and clubs for students to attend on a daily basis. While some students were unruly, for the most part, everyone comported themselves nicely. Opportunities were available to those who sought after it; unfortunately, some students did not know to ask. There was a lot of missed opportunities for the school to prepare its students for higher education, I sincerely hoped they have learned and improved since 2008. I can't speak much about the schools current status since matriculation.

Lake Worth High School has its challenges just like every other school. Do to recent changes with leadership the school is finally changing its ways. Pep rally’s are free to the students, students can’t just leave campus like they used to, this makes me feel safer at school. Teacher are involved with their students education and home life.

The schools academies are involved with the city (ex. marching, contest, and earning certificates). The school has added more protection to keep the students safe. Students do get alone, and since I’ve been in school I haven’t seen any bullying.

The environment is clean, classrooms are kept neat and organized. Clubs are also involved with some city activities and school events.
It's an ok school. I just wished they had more technology and better teachers, and most definitely better FOOD!
