Being at Lakeville South Highschool, brings a lot of great energy at festival in the school. Where as it's a school where diversity tend to be. Being here not only showed me how great the teacher are but it showed me that everyone in the school cares about how you feel as a person! Being an African American who moved from a different school during sophomore year. I can tell you personally that when I moved here, I was an introvert but being here made me and extrovert. People here create an environment where you feel safe, loved, wanted, and most importantly needed. The family and culture at Lakeville South is unbelievable, meaning everyone is part of something in the school. One last important thing that made me realize how great this school was when I had no idea about how to be ready for college but with the help of my deans, teachers,friends and family they have a system where they want EVERYONE to succeed no matter what race or gender you are.

Lakeville south has outstanding academics. Programs range from regular classes, to honors, to AP. The choice of extracurriculars and electives accommodates to all intrests and hobbies. They have an amazing fine arts program with a band who ranked 3rd in state last year and choirs for all experiences. The faculty and staff are extremely helpful and caring. They all strive to help the students thrive. The student body are welcoming, encouraging people who make the school who it is. Lakeville south is a great school for anyone who cafes about their academics, electives and extracurriculars, and fine arts.
The teachers at Lakeville South are very caring and understanding. When you come to class they always ask how you are feeling, what you feel we need to go over more, and what you plan on doing during the upcoming weekend. Knowing that there is always someone there to brighten up your day is what makes this such a great school to go to. The students are kind, there are a variety of classes to take, and the lunch actually isn't terrible like I'm sure some other schools don't have the privilege of having. The only thing that I feel is not too notch is preparation of post secondary education. They do offer/advise many AP classes, which is great but there really isn't any way that the staff helps students find a career that they are interested in. I hope that they can help students more in the future, than just giving them a one-time online test on career clusters. Despite this one shortcoming, Lakeville South is a great place to spend four years bonding with friends and staff alike.
