Lee Magnet High School is a great learning environment and there is a plethora of activities and electives to choose from. The faculty and staff are very polite and I have enjoyed my time there since my freshman year of high school. The learning environment is full of college preparation courses and classes to guide students towards a successful journey to college. The guidance councilors are very open to helping out with any needs or questions that students may have about going to college. Lee Magnet High School has prepared me to be an independent college student, and I am ready to start my life as a college student.

Lee Magnet High School is truly a school like no other. In Baton Rouge, Lee is a very tech-savvy school that focuses mainly on classes oriented towards the STEM fields, which include subjects such as Engineering, Biomedical, and Computer Science (though there are classes lacking in the latter subject). Although it is mainly focused on STEM field classes, it also has begun to place a large amount of emphasis on the sports teams, especially girls and boys basketball. However, at the same time, less emphasis is being placed on the liberal arts and visual/performing arts which are as equally important, as it also pertains to academics. Additionally, clubs have been forced to meet after school due to cuts to our in-school allotted club time, so clubs and activities have been lacking (especially since we began clubs late in the school year and they are not meeting until the next the year). I believe that Lee High was doing well before our switch in administration.
I liked the culture and teachers because they actually care about our future. If it were for Lee high school, I would still be undecided as to what career choice I wanted to pursue. Overall, it's a great school. Friendly staff and faculty try their best to advise and counsel you several matters no matter if it's a positive or negative situation. I really enjoyed the last year of high school because it prepared me for college life and now that I'm a freshman, I don't feel the fear of not accomplishing my career goals! It's an awesome feeling and I hope to one day provide the same encouragement and support to others as they have done for me.
