Absolutely enjoyed attending this high school. It is a huge part of my life because this is where it brought out the best in me and gave me the opportunities to do things that I would have never experienced in my life. From education to social life, leadership, and life lessons; overall LHS has been very supportive to help me really stand out. LHS offers many different courses that would help students explore what they might want to do with different levels (AP&Dual Enrollment/High Honors/Honors/College)The school makes sure to help each and every student succeed despite any challenges. With a high volume of students, the halls of LHS are full of diversity. There are students from all parts of the world and it is a great way for students to interact and learn about different cultures. Everyone is accepted and appreciated. There is a lot to learn and a lot of memories that graduates will take. It is a school where the voices of the students make a difference.

My first year here wasn’t so much different from eighth grade. Freshmen are placed in a separate building called the “Freshman Academy” and most classes of freshmen students would take place here. Based on my first year, I think some teachers could be a little better with teaching students; you’ll probably have to learn on your own with these teachers. Student and staff must also wear school given IDs at all times. I didn’t like this policy but it was important to keep an ID on your neck. What I did like about my freshman year was dance class and participating in dance concerts. It was really fun and rigorous as well as rewarding towards the end of each semester.
Even though LHS has a bad rep. from the people that don’t go, it’s a very good school. The schools staff care about you and want you to get good grades, the students aren’t all that bad ( contrary to belief, ) there will always be good and bad kids that go to a school, it’s just who you hang out with that determines the way you think about the school!
