I loved how easy it was to be myself at my school. I loved my coaches and teachers, they helped me every day to become a responsible/college ready student. I also love the administration and all of my friends. I would like to change some of our athletic facilities because we are a little behind in those. I participate on the football team and I was a team captain!

This school is very inclusive in the opportunities in sports, CTE programs, and Special Education. The math department is very inadequate and could use some more help. The English, social studies, and science departments are the most qualified for the jobs they have. The custodians are the best at keeping the halls and bathrooms free of debris.
LCHS was a good school, but it lacked a rounded education to prepare students for the real world. I once took a cooking class, and all we ever learned was how to make muffins, that were actually biscuits. There isn't many extra curricular activities, and it is easy to get in trouble. For me, Junior ROTC and soccer kept me out a trouble and helped keep my grades up.
