When I first came to Lincoln County High School, I really loved the environment because the teachers are very nice and easy to get along with. They always help me whenever I need help no matter what. My school also provides every student with a Chromebook to do homework on. I think that the school providing us with a Chromebook was very useful because I can get all my homework and extra studying done at home. Lincoln County High school is also the 83rd percentile, which means that my school is better than 83% of the other schools academically in Kentucky. The guidance is always helpful to me whenever I ask them questions about things. My school has also won awards in clubs for their academic talent and had a good average ACT score. Therefore, Lincoln County High School is a good school to be in for academic reasons and the teacher/ guidance that always help the students.

I thoroughly enjoyed the four years of my life that I have spent at Lincoln County High School. The staff was always lovely, caring, and hardworking. My only complaint is the school's immense lack of diversity and cultural awareness/sensitivity.
This school definitely has students academically capable but continues to miss the mark when hiring administrators. Facilities are being improved, but a constant stream of questionable ideas from those in charge holds this school behind.
