I had/am having a really good experience. The magnet is Lee's best quality, and it brings together so many different types of people. It might get a bad reputation, but I couldn't imagine going to school anywhere else. The teachers care, and almost everyone is involved in something extracurricular wise.

I had an ok experience with Lee. I feel like some people were treated better than others. I had to earn respect by being at the top of my class. I would change the food, the entire Administration, and some teachers. Teachers mess with grades depending on your relationship with them. Which hurts students GPA’s tremendously and some kids don’t even realize it but I sure do.
Lee High School is a very fun and interesting school to go to, but there are some downsides to it. For example that are some not so nice teachers ( you can also say that for the students), but all schools have bad occupants. Overall the magnet programs are really fun and teach many useful real life skills. Power hour is one of the best times of the day because i can see all of my friends or also catch up on my studies. The athletic programs are amazing and the coaches are amazing at their jobs. most of the faculty and staff are really nice and caring for the students. There are not many bad times at Lee High School.
