I loved my experience at Lakeville Sputh High School! The teachers are so nice, the students are kind, and the deans/principal really know how to show leadership. The school has a wide variety of clubs and activities to join too! The only thing I'd like to see is more diversity. We live in a very low diverse community. Lakeville South is very welcoming, but I'd love to see new people and learn about new cultures.

LSHS has been a great learning environment and offers a tremendous amount of variety in course selection and college preparation. LSHS is slowly growing in their diversity throughout the school and has amazing clubs, activities, culture, and resources available to me as a student. I have always felt that our administration has keep our facility safe and always has the students best interest at heart. In the future I think LSHS would benefit their students by involving parents in the steps for getting to college, the importance of grades, when scholarships and standardized (ACT/SAT) testing should be completed, and just the overall navigation through the college selection, admission, and financial qualification process.
Very non-diverse, unwelcoming, not a great experience for female person of color. Went here all four years, and have never hated high school more than anything. Lunch ladies wore trump stickers, and students openly were racists and did not face discipline. Teacher's were very biased towards certain students. Cause myself to attend PSEO over attending high school classes.
