Based on my experience, I liked how most of the teachers along with the counselours cared about the students education and wants you to succeed further in life instead of just encouraging you to pass the class. They impliment life lessons and offer advice in preparation for the real world. However, sometimes it was a shortage of staff and resources necessary for learning adequately. Some students disrupt the learning environment or ruin the leisure of others on several occassions. Also, it lacked entertainment and activities to make school enjoyable to make the high school experience more than just work.

During my time at Lithonia High school I enjoyed the school spirit and my teachers and their support to keep persevering so that I could succeed. I also like the friends I made at my school and the academic opportunities offered to me, as well as other students. What I wish could change were the fights that would occur at times and the fact that the restrooms were always closed.
LHS is not the worst school but it's not the best. There's a lack of resources as well as lack of teachers. There was also many times where there were rats roaming in the cafeteria. In addition, there were many instances were we were put on Level 3 lockdowns because of violence or intruders.
