My experience was fair and challenging. Students were treated well and classes were well managed and organized. As for improvements, they are already underway! The school is currently improving the sports programs, facility, and grounds.

As a student, I am sometimes appalled at what we are served for breakfasts and lunches. Progress has certainly been made since my first year at the high school, and there are some meals that are actually quite good. But, that being said, there is still more work that needs to be done. Lewiston High School takes safety very seriously and we regularly practice lockdowns of different severities and also practice fire drills in the warmer months. We have a great system for creating clubs and other non-athletic activities; all a student needs to start a club is to have a teacher that will supervise the club on the scheduled meeting days and at least 4 other students to be in the club. Then, as long as it doesn't break any of the school rules, the club is usually okayed by the administration. We have an Aspirations Lab that is designated for students (specifically juniors and seniors) who feel like they don't know what to do after high school.
I wouldn't want to go to school anywhere else other than Lewiston High School. The lessons this school has taught me are some that no other students at other schools could even begin to fathom. With the amazing diversity of the school with kids from fifty plus countries, I have made friends from around the world from some places I didn't even know existed. I have become best friends with teachers I never imagined becoming close to at all that some have stayed in contact with me throughout four years! Thank you Lewiston High School for making me realize what I want to aspire to be in life with the help of the amazing resources you have had to offer to me. I could not move on to college without this place and I will forever think of it as a safe place for me to return to without hesitation.
