Lanier High School offers a diverse atmosphere for students to be involved and to learn, lead, and succeed. Something that could change would the schedule because it does not allow enough time and everything moves a lot quicker due to this new schedule. However, the faculty and staff are there to support students whether in college preparedness or academic achievement. Hook em' horns!

The experience at Lanier has exceeded my expectations. As a student, I have excelled in knowledge, participation and leadership. The CDAT/STEM Academy has been a wonderful hands on experience that allows success! I am empowered to continue my college education in STEM, majoring in biology in order to become a biomedical engineer.
Great atmosphere with amazing faculty and sports programs! Over my 4 year journey I've made great relationships with teachers, coaches, administration, and students. Always have open arms with helping students improve their grades along with helping after or before school.
