My experience at Lewis County High School was nothing glamorous, due to some of the conceited staff and the rambunctious students. Many times, I heavily considered dropping out and completing my GED at another time, but persevered because I spent my time counting the days down until I would graduate, realizing that although a few of my teachers rarely were present to teach their classes, I was responsible enough to get the work done and make something of myself. Now that I'm practically out of there, I feel a huge weight off of my shoulders, knowing I'll never be burdened by the judgemental atmosphere of that school again. I'm aware many schools are like this, but I personally believe that we as students need a better learning environment if we are expected to uphold this world as our ancestors have.

Lewis County High School is a small school that has a lot of great opportunities for its students. The vocational program is through the Foster Meade Career Technical Center, where students can take steps towards their future careers.
I like how the teachers are always kind and understanding to the students, they always make sure to check if they can understand the subject their teaching and they make sure everyone is keeping up with the work.
