My experience at LSHS was average. My first two years were the best and now as a senior I am ready to graduate and leave! It was a great experience from the teachers to sports to academics. My favorite teachers at LSHS are Mrs.Thomas, Mr.Hoffman, and Mr.Fleck! I think I will still remember them when I leave because they made an impact and my school year wonderful. I did have bad experiences but good ones as well. I did play sports for my first two years which were basketball and track which I enjoyed. Overall I was glad to attend this school and feel that it helped me prepare for college and I think i'm going to do great!

I am both a parent and alum of LSHS. This school is the original and offers a great foundation and tradition of excellence in education, activities and events, as well as a top-notch Administration. We chose to stay within the LSHS district (not moving to West or North) due to great teachers, activities, and the diversity of the students. They have worked hard to update the school and have the same technology advancements as the other schools within the district. Just need to update the bathrooms with more no-touch faucets and toilets.
I transferred to Lee’s Summit the beginning of my sophomore year from a private school. I felt welcomed, but I immediately felt how different the culture was. It was very obvious that everyone knew that I was knew and everywhere I went people stared and whispered. Although I didn’t mind, I wish that they had come up to me and talk to me. Other than the students and the culture, Lee’s Summit High School is a great school and I would recommend it to anyone considering moving to Lee’s summit.
