    While attending LISA Academy West High School, I was exposed to an advanced learning environment. The school is very focused on the students excelling in math, science, and test scores. As a student, this can help motivate you to try your best as the staff often reviewed great test taking skills before huge tests and assessments.

    Referring back to the staff, they're very helpful and extremely nice. If one of my teachers didn't know the answer to my question, he/she would research the topic and readdress me later. They have no problem with admitting that they don't know everything, which is very reassuring.

    I have attended LISA Academy West High School for the past 2 years and I am now an arising junior this coming school year. My experience here at LISA has been such a joyful yet difficult ride. The academics are a bit overwhelming but this school was made for the purpose of college readiness, so the difficulty level is expected and understood. However, I do believe that there is room for improvement. There are times that I feel the staff can be very biased toward students that excels in certain areas within certain academics. I feel that teachers and administrators give up too easily on those that do not show as much potential as those that are above the academic requirements. I hope to see more awareness and attention on those that are truly trying their best in striving for a better education in the near future.
    I am currently attending LISA Academy West High School Under the current circumstances with the unexpected pandemic altering school programs, LISA has been able to keep all systems orderly and well-structured despite these difficult times.
