I've only been at Lemont High School for a little while, but from my experiences there, I can say without a doubt that Lemont is an excellent school! Lemont offers a sense of community, safety, and goodness. This is a school in which people care about each other. Today in our society, we hear negative things about high school students. We are told that many of them vape, do drugs, vandalize, and don't care about education. Lemont exists tp prove the pundits wrong. Not once have I seen a vape pod, or any drug paraphernalia and usage whatsoever. They have a standard of excellence, an administration who cares about each student, and a staff that is committed to their success. I do believe however that Lemont could improve on its afterschool capabilities. Students should be given an adequate space to work. Other than that, this school is a place that inspires people to be better people. That's very hard to find. That's Lemont.

I love LHS! The faculty is outstanding because the teachers really care. We are treated as adults and the bar is set extremely high. There are a ton of opportunities to get involved so that the students feel like they belong! The smallness of our school allows you to know everyone and fosters an atmosphere of friendship and trust. There are also numerous opportunities for social interactions such as games, dances, spirit weeks. We have a high participation in these opportunities because the students really enjoy being around each other and they genuinely like one another. I know that even though I am leaving LHS to attend college, I will continue to have relationships with the teachers and students who have helped shape me into the man I am today.
Lemont High School is an exceptional school. Teachers, that not only provide a solid educational foundation but also encourage students to exceed in all aspects of their life, establish a heartening environment. A diverse selection of courses allows students to find a subject that interests them. With the option of over 15 AP courses, students come across many opportunities to challenge themselves. A variety of clubs and sports also gives students the ability to develop social connections. Overall, Lemont Highschool does an excellent job of preparing students for college. As a student at Lemont High School, I can attest to that. I greatly enjoyed my experience at Lemont Highschool, and because of this school, I am prepared to enter the next phase of my life.
