Lawrence High School is a great place to be at. This school is full of diverse ethnicity and full of hardworking students. One of the most notable aspect of Lawrence High School is that there is another school in which I am a part of. This school, Abbott Lawrence Academy, was created 3-4 years ago and I am part of the first graduating class. The courses offered at this school is rigorous and the schedule is almost similar to what a person may expect to see in college. Abbott Lawrence Academy (ALA) even offers AP classes earlier than most schools as I took an AP American History class in my sophomore year. Although ALA may be a great place to challenge oneself, there are most definitely errors that could be changed. Some of these errors include unbalanced work-life schedules as the workload entering freshman (especially sophomore) year may be too much for the students. Other than that, ALA is a small enough school to meet every student and bond together through the struggles.

Overall this is a great school that anyone should attend and has many extracurricular activities which will definitely get you out of your comfort zone. Students there lack the awareness of how important it is to finish high school and don't make great decisions in their lives but as long as you know what you want, you will achieve it! -LHS 2022
I attend Abbott Lawrence Academy, which is located within Lawrence High School. I would say my experience attending high school has been very good because I have been pushed to my potential and offered multiple opportunities to succeed.
