In Lanier, I feel comfortable because I am a single mother and they have a great daycare which has allowed me to continue my studies because I am able to attend school and be sure that my daughter is going to be safe. I also feel safe and comfortable because I feel like the teachers want the kids to succeed and they are willing to take extra steps to make sure their students do so. I also like how they push most of their students to be involved in AP/Pre-AP classes as well as Dual credit classes because it prepares them for college.

That's the great school I know when I come to Lanier and it changes myself all the time I am there. Good environment, I have a lot the memory in there with my teacher, my friend, and a lot something else. When I have left the school, and I need forget I did have great times in that school. Teacher in Lanier, they will teach you to need to give up, they always come to help you when you need. They have a great principal, he is so awesome and always a hobby with his student, he is ready to listen to you when you need help from him. They know where you are, and they always find the ways can fit your ability. You can find a lot condition for your life, and they are ready to set up for help you. It's always in my heart and I hope one days I can come back, and say thank you.
The things that i like about Lanier is that the admistrators are really involved in the students school life. Offering help when they can. They help duel credit with ordering their college book. They have classes that help you out with homework and with applying to college.The one thing I think should change is to have pep-rally for all sports not just football. They should have pep-rally for soccer,baseball, tenis, basketball ,etc.
