Lawton High School is the ideal small town school. From morning math class to Friday night football, the people of Lawton are close-knit and personable. The staff at LHS is unmatched. Held to high standards, teachers and administrators work diligently to ensure that students are reaching their full potential and thriving during their high school years. Extra curriculars, such as sports and the arts, are well-funded when necessary, due to the hard work of the members of the community. The only area in which it can be improved upon is diversity. Multiculturalism is a vital aspect of life, and should be highly encouraged in adolescence. However, located in rural southwest Michigan, there isn't much diversity as it is. While Lawton may not have the most ethnic diversity, there are numerous elements that positively counterbalance that. Overall, the small-scale community's support for the school and the well-being of its students truly makes Lawton High School a great place to learn.
Even though this High School is small, it's pretty much a normal high school. Some of the teachers are great, some are not. The teachers try to make learning as much fun as possible. Lots of opportunities to play many sports and participate in various things in the arts.
The opportunities that the school provided, like the number of clubs and sports. What I think should be improved on is the way certain teachers work with their students, most are good at their jobs, but there is always that one teacher everyone complains about.
