Lakeview Centennial High School, The high School that taught me alot that i know now! The Teachers here are great, and they really care about the students, making sure they do all they can to get the students involved in college field trips , scholarships, grants and even Informed us about the FAFSA. Our sports team is decent and the fans around it make the atmosphere amazing, And the diversity of Lakeview is what really stand out, as kids and teachers of all races roam the halls collaborating, while heading to the many classes the school has to offer! Our Principal, Mrs.Bailey is doing her best at making sure all kids stay on the correct path, and that Lakeview sustains its good image. One thing i would change about the school is the Lunch, because at times the Quality of food can be poor; however, the Vending machines providing Healthy snack Would make any student overlook Lakeviews minor shortComings.

Lakeview Centennial High School is like any other school. I loved the college readiness the school had to offer me however only half of the teachers I ever I had actually taught me anything. In all 4 years of my time at Lakeview, none of my math teachers taught me anything. I either had a coach who played movies all the time or a teacher that hardly taught. I would also like to see change is the food. When I was a freshman there, the cafeteria made outstanding food! They offered burritos that were as good as chipotle, pizza that tasted like dominos, and some of the best chicken poppers I have ever had. The cafeteria was packed and student morale was good. However, my sophomore year the food was gross and only got worse. I even got food poisoning my junior year! Students get in trouble when they sneak off campus and go to a local fast food joint, but even teachers have agreed the food is bad! Other than that, Lakeview is a good school.
My experience at this school was good I made a lot of friends, and I can say I did learn a lot from every class I took most of the teachers who work there care about your education. School spirit was really good everyone came out to games and support even small clubs. Also the food could be better but there were some favorites like the loaded potatoes! Overall great school I do not regret attending.
