Review Lancaster High School
I've attended this school since freshman year, my experience wasn't the best due to teachers and schedule changes. Although there are a lot different electives and clubs/sports opportunities. Counselors are nice and very helpful, Though,almost always busy.As for school lunchs..In all honesty freshman year had the best lunches, now it's pretty small, half the te the same food is given out, or in other words, menu doesnt really change, same for breakfast. So you're worried about a good diet,Its best to go to the salad bar or just bring lunch. Education system is ... balanced. Of course their are those students who just don't do anything, and end up failing but that's not entirely the teachers fault.Overall, the school isn't bad unless you're an introvert or a troublemaker, In my case I am an introvert but I really liked this school.
Although I was not the most eager student when I attended this school, I do recognize that it is not a terrible school, but it is far from exceptional. I did not enjoy the majority of the teacher' classes and the textbooks were severely outdated (sometimes more than a decade old). Honestly, this school is decent example of the reasons that the public educational system is lacking. I understand that it is the task of a student to learn how to seek out knowledge for their-selves, but most of the classes I took were completely drab. Overall, a student's experience will be dictated by their willingness to endure these dull moments and still remain interested in the subjects taught. It was a relatively peaceful high school, and I am sure that many great minds were shaped within its wall, but I pinpoint the extent in which the school itself may have contributed to them.
