High school here in Lovington is an amazing experience but it does have its fair amount of pros and cons. They have one of the best cheer, track, and cross country teams. I myself am very lucky to be a part of the Cross Country team. The school is close to a junior college so they give the junior and senior students the opportunity to take duel credit courses that will help give them an advantage on their college credits before they even apply for college. The cons about the school is that some of the teachers do not care about the student's education and are only there for their paycheck. The school is also very short on teachers, sometimes even substitutes. On the other hand, they do have some amazing Science and English teachers. Overall, my experience so far has been great. I love all of my teachers and everything that they are currently teaching me. The school has a very strong school spirit and it is just all in all an average school for an average high school student.

During my time at Lovington high school I learned that becoming a leader could lead to an easier life. Sports are a huge thing in the town, but all athletes know education will come first. I learned to always stay updated in everything that is happening. I would like to see the school grow more in the educational process. Many student fail to reach the expectations Lovington provides. As a soon to be alumni I would always love to bring my child back to Lovington.
I liked the way Lovington High had the schedules and administration (principal). I would like to see the push on academics change because it was seated behind football and basketball. The science department have permanent substitutes, so the students in there are not getting very far.
