I moved to Lorena when I was in fourth grade, and will graduate here as well. Everyone knows that moving to a new school can be rough and difficult for most, but the Staff, Students and community made it feel like home. The school really cares for your education and wants you to push you to do your best to be successful. There are also a lot of clubs/ extracurricular activities to be in as well. There is a place for everyone to fit in at, at Lorena High School!

I love the overall family atmosphere and love for our community that you experience as soon as you walk into the school. The teachers work hard to make sure each student has a good experience in high school and go out of their way to make our day special. I wish our school was a little more diverse and had a few more clubs to be a part of, but overall Lorena is an incredible school district that I am proud to be a part of!
What I like most about Lorena High School is how everyone knows everyone. People in Lorena practically have known each other since kindergarten. For example, my best friend Cade and I have known each other all of our lives and will be going to the same college at Hardin Simmons. He will be going for football and I will be going for Track. The people like Cade and I always look out for one another and will always have everyones back. It may not be perfect all the time, but we do know that we all have big dreams that we pursue together to get there. The teachers that inspire us are like second family, which means we like to aggravate, and even sometimes drive each other crazy. But at the end of the day, we all love one another after we go through the ups and downs together. I wouldn't ever change a thing about Lorena because it would not be the same school that I spent my whole life going to. This school, my home, has brought so many memories to hold onto.
