Lockport High School Reviews

Overall, LHS is a great Highschool. They offer programs and classes that other schools don’t have such as AP classes for college and BOCES for work force. LHS have a great staff/ teachers that are helpful and kind. They truly put us, the students, above and prioritize our education and wellbeing. However they lack a way to control drug substances inside school. You can easily find students in the bathroom smoking and vaping.

The teachers are usually very nice, especially in the English department. The food is mediocre but the cafeterias are large. Don't rely on the counselors to help you decide what you want to do after high school.
Lockport is a pretty good school. If you make the effort, the teachers are there for you. They will give you the extra time and energy if you truly want to learn. The school itself is ok. it's clean. The food sucks, about half the kids bring their own lunch. There is a wide variety of classes to choose from and a lot of extra stuff to do, like robotics, drama, or science Olympia. Sports is ok. Lockport is about 1400 students, so our sports teams are always full. We are competitive in our area, but that's it, varies from year to year. I would like to see the school more focused on preparing us for the future with emphasis on SAT and ACT prep and financial management.
