Lisle High School is a small school; only about five hundred students total. The school got listed as one of the best schools in the state. This is true. Most of the teachers are extremely helpful, friendly, and care about their students. As a senior there, I know I can turn to a trusted teacher. There are lots of oppritunites, from boy's and girl's sports, to art club, math team and theatre. Staff, and especially other students, encourage you to sign up for a sport, club, or activity if you have a chance. I've gotten closer to so many people because of it. The staff is encouraging, there's always someone to turn to. During homecoming week, everyone gets involved and the pep rallys are very fun.

Overall the school has a smaller class size which makes interaction with teachers very easy and helpful. Every teacher cares about their students indefinitely and wishes to see them do their best. I did not feel as if some of the teachers, though, were putting in their best effort to make sure we understood and learned the materials. Unfortunately that was the one problematic and least helpful parts of this high school.
Lisle High School has a small graduation class with a little over 120 students in the graduating class of 2020. More people are able to try out for various sports in the fall, winter, and spring, and the average class size is about 20 students. The teachers are able to dedicate more time to help their struggling students. However, the school consumes too much energy powering TVs that other people do not watch often.
