Lewis-Palmer High School has exemplary teachers, coaches, and resources. The school also has a variety of clubs and activities for students. It consistently produces graduates that have gone to prestigious colleges and universities. Students are encouraged to take AP coursework and try their hardest. The math, science, and technology departments are exceptional and have the best teachers in the school. All of the teachers are welcoming and friendly and they care about their students, both in and out of the classroom. Many of them are also involved in clubs or sports outside of school. Sports are good, if only slightly better than average. The administration was average, however there has been changes in leadership since I graduated.

Lewis Palmer is a very accepting program; not only is the student body nonjudgmental, but the facility is also very inclusive. I am able to walk through the halls confidently. Despite living in a small town with little diversity, LPHS is oddly understanding of how beautiful diversity is and accepting differences is the right thing to do. My only complaint is the lack (and when I say lack I mean none at all) of funding that goes towards the arts. LPHS blows thousands on the sports teams, and gives no money to any art programs. It is disturbing and disappointing. But, all and all Lewis Palmer feels like a safe environment.
I enjoyed teacher involvement and their efforts to prepare you for the real world and potentially college. Some teachers are amazing, some not so much. If I could change anything, I would ask them to fix up their English department a bit as my freshmen to junior year all my English teachers were different and seemed lost of what we were doing. The science department is fantastic and many teachers will help to tutor and stay after school if need be. I am not overly thrilled with the efforts put forward by the counseling department, however I understand they are busy.
