This school is a school like no other. What i truly love about Lane is that it provides its students with a true high school experience. And no, not that cool kids vs lame kids experience. It helps you in creating friendships with people from different backgrounds and values. Our ethnicities are celebrated during International days, which is a week in which ethnic cubs perform their ethnic dances. The teachers truly care for their students and their education. There are hundreds of clubs and activities and if you don't find one right for you, then you can make one! It is very easy to find a place to fit in and people are open minded and truly friendly. We get to have open campus lunch and go wherever we want to eat. Parents and teachers are highly invested in supporting students and helping them achieve their goals. We have the best sports team, which is why we call ourselves the School of Champions. I am so lucky to say I attend Lane Tech High school. Go Indians!

Lane Tech is a high school that holds so much diversity. You'll make awesome friends and connections with teachers that will help bring you up and succeed in life. Being in a selective enrollment high school really pushes you to do your best and counselors are constantly mentioning college, including AP exams, enrichment programs, scholarship/financial aid info, and application deadlines. Aside from the academic portion, Lane Tech is really big on sports! Our school holds the most clubs and sports (boys, girls, coed) in the whole city of Chicago! Being a LT student is challenging, but worth the excitement.
My experience at Lane Tech was great! The school is very large, but it doesn't feel big because it's such a warm and welcoming community of people. There are countless clubs and sports teams, so everyone can have a chance to participate. The teachers welcome you to ask questions and encourage you to participate in dynamic discussions. There is place for everyone at Lane Tech.
