Lloyd C. Bird High School Reviews

When people think of high school, most dread hearing the name, while others think back on the parties and celebrations they hosted. Feelings of high school are mixed for all students; everyone’s experiences are different. What was my highschool experience like? My four years were the greatest years of my life to date. I’ve met plenty of people who I’ve grown to cherish; people I’m positive I’ll grow old with. I’ve experienced some of the funniest scenarios, from embarrassing presentations to dunking teachers in freezing water. I’ve learned to expect the unexpected. Consequently, with happiness comes the hardships. I’ve dealt with issues, issues I didn’t think I could even get through. Although it was difficult, I managed with friends and family surrounding me, supporting me. Overall, my experience was one I will never forget. I’ve evolved and changed into someone I didn’t think I could. High school taught me how to be better and do better; to mature.

L.C. Bird is a mixing pot of many different kinds of students and teachers. This mix of socioeconomic background prepares members of the Skyhawk community for life in the real world. As a student you are encouraged to attend events and to get involved in within the community. Although the student section may not be the loudest or most excited in the county, the pride is there.

Part of what makes L.C. Bird so diverse is the mix of students that have Bird as their home high school and the students who come to the school for the Engineering program. The engineering program encourages students to think outside of the box and actively encourages students to take steps to prepare them for college. The engineering program also brings in a wide variety of STEM related programs to the school for all students to participate in.
My experience at Bird was new for me as I came from another high school and everything was different to me. Rules were different and so were the teachers. I wasn't in my natural environment with my everyday friends and had to meet new people. I learned new things by taking computer classes and finding a new hobby. I would recommend staying here at Bird as the teachers were very helping and always pushed you to do better!
