Staffing is quite poor.Teacher at door of gym said no you can’t walk up you have to drive up. When Grandmother said she would go to office to have them sent out she remarked office won’t. This was all new to Grandmother. Time before no one said anything against her walking up for kids. As she got outside building by office trying to decide how to handle, staff person asked if she needed help. When told situation staff person said wait. Staff came out of bldg to tell her they were sending kids out. Teacher at gym looked very irritated as she sent kids out. No one took the time to tell Grandparent how to properly park and get children. She had seen many walking back with kids to get in parked car. So she knew there was a way to have kids where she could walk up to get them. She and kids stayed close to main building walking back to car. Never got anywhere near street nor line of cars in lot picking up kids at gym. At 3 PM line of cars was three blocks long.
Laker High School is a good high school, but like every high school it has its flaws. I enjoyed learning under most of the staff here; most of them were very friendly and easy to get along with. This school focuses the vast majority of their time and money on men's sports, the main one being football. This school is very discriminatory towards the arts, and often puts it behind everything else. I have seen countless circumstances where certain art programs within this school were given unfair treatment. This is one of the many things this school can improve on.
Laker High School has a big sports arena, a big weightroom, and an updated gym. For special classes, they have Engineering, Mechatronics, and many others. The only bad thing are their lunches. They are frozen and prepackaged. It looks like meals for the junior high or elementary and it isn't very healthy.
