Lisa Academy High School Reviews

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.

Lisa Academy West High is a school that - through personal experience - I have discovered to be a mediocre extension of the already less-than-stellar LRSD school district. Lisa is a school that prides itself in the "golden boys/girls" of the school, facilitating academic aid and guidance, whilst the rest fall behind. In layman terms, the school is much more focused on upholding its depreciating reputation rather than lifting the whole.
The teachers here offer a vast variety of cultural background, and this is reflected in their commitment and understanding of students. The school is able to work more closely with students than some traditional districts and schools. In addition, they’re able to offer different, interesting clubs and activities (such as Turkish and an eSports team). Community involvement and giving back is one of the most fundamental ideals here. They truly stand by their four pillars: Learn, Innovate, Support, and Achieve.
