Lakewood Ranch High School overall is great! As a student currently attending; teachers, students, and staff make this school a great experience. There are dozens of clubs and activities so everyone has a chance to participate in the "high school experience". There is even a brand new club where anyone can join and the purpose of it is to try and get more students involved and to have more spirit. With the recently new principle, the school has changed dramatically. The physical appearance is always changing for the better and there is much more pride/spirit. LRHS has overall became an amazingly supportive environment. You can tell that faculty and staff really do care about their students and I look forward to going to school everyday.

I attended Lakewood Ranch High School for 4 years. All high schools have their strengths and weaknesses, but my overall experience was a positive one! The teachers and staff were always willing to help students individually, and there were plenty of clubs, programs, and extracurricular activities available for every student!
I really enjoyed my time at Lakewood Ranch High School. In my opinion, there is something there for everyone. They have football, theater, chorus, journalism, graphic design, FFA, I'm not sure that someone couldn't find something they enjoyed to do if they tried. I found myself highly involved in chorus and a cappella and I have never felt so safe, loved, and accepted. Families are truly formed at LRHS. The campus has trees, benches, places for people to walk and sit, and is well kept. I've seen that they've recently added banners and doormats to bring up the school spirit even more. I definitely had favorite and least favorite teachers, but none that were truly mean or uneducated. The sports are at varying levels of success, but the support is followed all around. LRHS never lacked school spirit, and homecoming week always invited a multitude of different outfits and endless creativity.
