Lawrence High School was an amazing school! They always wanted students to lead, achieve, and succeed. More than 80% of Lawrence High School students have joined an after school club, organization, or sports team. Seniors also have the privileged to use out-to-lunch which many schools don't offer. Whenever I struggled in academics, upperclassmen, staff, and tutors were always willing to help me! I also joined the tennis team in senior year and managed to make varsity during tennis season. The coach always makes sure that everybody has an opportunity to play, because he knows that we are all here because of our passion for tennis. Lawrence High School truly made me feel that I can make major strides in life with handwork and effort.

In my experience, Lawrence High School is very welcoming and understanding. I have some mental health issues that the school has been accommodating of and it's been very helpful in transitioning back to school. I like the range of classes that are available and the teachers are all very good in the way they teach. I personally think that one of the best things at our school are our English teachers. However, I'm biased since English is my favorite subject. Overall I would say that the school environment is amazing except for that one bathroom that has a big dent in one of the stalls so you can't even enter it. Otherwise, everything is amazing. The students are amazing as well since they tend to be very welcoming. Sometimes there is a lot of drama among specific people but the situations aren't so big that everyone knows about it.
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.
