Lawton High School Reviews

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.

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.
The staff at Lawton High School is very respectful and helpful, but there needs to be something done about bullying. Students get away with a lot that should not be going on in school. Staff needs to become more involved on preventing this issue.
