My experience at LCHS (Lawrence County High School) was great. I learned many of things dealing with school and not dealing with school. It is a great place to be and provides a family atmosphere. What I would like to see changed at LCHS is to have more classes or electives to choose from. For example, the school doesn't have an art class which is something a lot people would love to get into. Many people don't want to be limited to very few options in such a great place like LCHS. That is my experience, what I have learned, and what I think should be changed at Lawrence County High School.

It is a regular school. Most of the teachers are genuine, good teachers but there are some that don't teach at all. Then again, there are a couple of teachers that, in my opinion, the best teachers ever and have greatly impacted my learning. The students are generally respectful but they can also get extremely rowdy and difficult to contain. A lot of the rules regarding uniforms and cellphones change yearly and sometimes, even by semester. We can not have phones at all, even during breaks and lunch. We can only wear polo shirts or expensive red, gray, or black school shirts. Most of the school participates in extracurricular activities but there are not many unathletic activities and almost none involving art or theater. Football rules and everyone else has to fun raise like crazy but the town is very supportive so it is not difficult to do.
This district use to be known for their academics and athletics. We had students receiving scholarships academically as well as athletics. However, with change in administration we have gone way below our expectations as a district.
