My experience at Lassen High School has been great. Compared to other students, I haven't been the most involved, but one High School aspect that I've been involved in is their FFA program. The Agricultural teachers are the best I've ever heard of and care so much about their students and train them for competitions and adult life. The school is also making a large effort to teach seniors how to be an adult, with 30 minute classes every other Wednesday such as taxes, cooking with a budget, changing tires, and oil changes. Lassen High School has also recently taken measures to make the campus safer, and is making students mental health their top priority. Therefore my experience has been great, not perfect though.

It is a school where someone can succeed if they are self-motivated and learn okay on their own. However, they dumb their materials down. Since it is located in a prison town, most graduates aren't looking at college. If they are, it's usually Lassen Community College. This school does not prepare students for higher education very well; the students have to take that upon themselves.
Lassen High is kind of mediocre. Some of the staff is enthusiastic, and our new We R Lassen program makes things a little better, but a lot of the teachers aren't what I would expect or want, especially for Honors or AP classes. The campus looks nice(ish), but the school itself isn't that great and I can't wait to leave. Most of these ratings are really more like a 2.5 than a 3.
