I really enjoy the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that the school brings. Not only are there various high-quality opportunities to learn in topics such as robotics, broadcasting, culinary arts, theater, debate and more; there's also a wonderful teacher staff that makes school enjoyable. There's something for everyone and the recent Corona virus outbreak has shown most people just how much we appreciate the school. Starting Monday, all of the Kansas schools that were on Spring break will not be able to return to school. Instead students will stay home and review curriculum online. Having the opportunity to do our schoolwork online with our district-provided iPads demonstrates how adaptable our school is to crises.

My experience at Lansing High School has been a very pleasant one! Teachers are eager to form relationships with their students. There are many clubs and organizations available for students to join. Classes are offered for most interest areas, and internships are also available.
I loved the atmosphere and all the opportunities it offered! The school gave opportunities to volunteer in clubs, find a career path that suits you, and have fun by playing sports or joining a competitive, volunteer based, or academic club.
