I had an absolutely excellent experience at Lancaster High School! Firstly, I had really great experiences academically. The teachers genuinely want the students to succeed and it is completely evident in the classroom everyday. Secondly, the opportunities we are given as students is amazing. We get the opportunity to participate in multiple programs, and support many more. Thirdly, the school spirit and pride we have is unmatched. Our administration and teachers are proud to work there and they pass it right along to us, making us proud to be students there. There is nothing as exciting and supportive as a pep rally at Lancaster High School!

Almost all of the staff (teachers and otherwise) are very positive and encouraging to students. An environment is created where students can work and also enjoy extracurricular activities, and staff will support almost every activity in some form- there is always at least one staff member hosting a club, and for the clubs that have some type of performance, many staff attend the event as well as encourage other students to attend. Overall, Lancaster High School is a fantastic place to grow and learn, and I am very glad I spent the past four years there.
My favorite part of LHS is the spirit of all the teachers and staff, every single one of them made it so obvious that they were there to see us succeed and would do all they could to get us there. I will say, I wish I was more prepared for what college studying and testing would be like but as far as teaching goes, LHS is one of the best. One of the most important things at LHS was that we all felt we were a part of something, whether it be academics, sports or clubs, all staff wanted us all to feel as though we really did belong. I feel as though, regardless of our backgrounds and personalities and "friend groups" most students made it a point to make everyone included and feel welcome. The "high school cliques" were never a huge thing at the high school, because we were all able to be involved based on what we were good at.
