Lewis and Clark is a great high school. The unique open campus and one lunch schedule gives every student extra time for clubs and help from teachers in classes. It’s possible and encouraged to be a part of many different communities within LC. The english, math, and drama departments are superb! The only issue is some lack of care from students in the environment of the school, specifically during lunch when food is left on the ground as the bell rings for 4th period.

I loved the academic awareness of the staff and the genuine passion from the administration and teachers to invest in the students future. There are many ways to get involved with a diverse group of professionals leading different clubs and sports. Lewis and Clark has prepared me for my future in a combination of ways. This includes the combination of different activities such as DECA and Drama. Both of these activities has taught me professionalism and clear communication skills which has led me to countless job opportunities. Overall, Lewis and Clark has excelled their students to the next step in life and invested a great amount into their teachers to receive they results they strive for.
Lewis and Clark High School has the same problems as any other public school. However, the way they address these issues is what makes the school exemplary. Simply walking through the hallways, there are many student-made anti-bullying posters with inspiring messages. The school has many programs made by their students that feed those who can not always afford food or clothes that have spread throughout the district. For instance, the Tiger Closet gives away clothing and the food recycling program persuades students to put unwanted, unexpired food in bins to hand out later. Though administrators try, I believe they could do a bit better at following through with parent contact, though they still do pretty well considering how large the school is.
