I am an alumni of LHS who was very involved in clubs and sports! I had a great time going to high school here, and made connections with teachers I will never forget. I think that Lawrence is a great school for all types of students and truly is so diverse in so many ways. Going to college made me realize how fortunate I was to be a student in the Lawrence township public school system.

I love Lawrence High School as we have amazing teachers and good opportunities. The athletic programs aren't amazing, but the facilities are pretty new. It is safe, and I love it!
Communication between teachers and parents is fairly good. Dislike that students are forced to take swimming in gym. Dislike that teachers all use different forms of communicating homework assignments with kids. Some use Google Classroom, some use school website. Naviance is great tool!
