What I like about Landstown High School is how the teachers care about their students a lot and want them to do nothing but succeed in their academics and in life. They will schedule tutoring with students who does not understand what is going on in a subject, the school provides clubs to keep their students occupied after school, and there are also sports! So far Landstown is a great school to attend and very fun.

Landstown is good and bad for its own reasons. As far as teachers, you either get really good teachers or really bad teachers. The students are actually fairly nice and self disciplined. Fights rarely occur and our school is pretty well protected. The student popularity is around 2,500 and EXTREMELY diverse! Overall my lasting impression of Landstown High is that it is a slightly above average school.
I love the diversity that goes along with Landstown. Everyone seems to find their own niche and grow into a better person. My teachers have always been personable and willing to talk about things outside of school. There are a wide variety of clubs to join and new clubs can always be made to go along with someone's interests. Students, teachers, and administration all support academics and sports teams and makes those members feel special. Landstown is a big family and one of the best schools in the beach!
