Limestone Community High School Reviews

Limestone is a small school with many different classes to choose from. The Rockets won the state baseball championship in 2015 and continue to encourage athletes. Limestone also has connections with Illinois Central College to provide college credits to eager students. However if Limestone is known for anything it would be the one million dollars it has raised for easter seals. If I could change something about Limestone it would be the lack of students. Limestone could use more students in clubs, and helping with the easter seals programs.

In my four years at Limestone I have seen it all. I've seen the good the school has done in the community, helping the children of Easter Seals and it's various volunteer based events that keep the community involved and I've seen the ability the entire student body has to care for it's community. Limestone has many special events and extracurricular activities that are held to the same standard as their common course counterparts, which is a huge benefit to it's students. Moreover, the entire teaching staff is so supportive of not only the in-class aspect of their role in our lives, but providing us with the necessary skills to move on in our academic and professional careers.
At Limestone Community High School I liked the sports and student involvement. The diversity could be improved as well as school culture, but the education is good.
