Although the football team at Lubbock High School is not the best, the school spirit at every game is still at an all time high and I think that's really good for the students to still have so much support and energy for our team. Our academics are amazing and is what we are known for! This school always ends up having the most students get awarded with huge scholarships and out of all the districts in Lubbock they have the most scholarship money given to students! The history of Lubbock High itself is really neat, Buddy Holly was a student at LHS and they have a shadow book case dedicated to him, and even a plaque next to his homeroom. Being at this school has really showed me that school can be challenging but enjoyable at the same time and I have enjoyed it for the most part.

I really enjoyed going to LHS it was fun, friendly and the academics were great! I loved all my teachers they were very helpful. The school also provided many facilities such as prepping for college, dual credit classes and after school tutoring which helped me a lot. We had great academic programs such as IB and AP Capstone. One thing I would like to improve is sports our sports teams are not very good.
Lubbock High School is a beautiful, outstanding school. Most students are academically challenged on a comfortable scale with those who need help and helped and guided by the wonderful teachers' and counselors. The school is very clean and well mapped. Most of the teachers are putting smiles on students faces and keeping us felt loved and powered. The school withholds are great diversity of students from all backgrounds over the world. The school provides a really well structured college readiness program called International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement Capstone. These programs aid in the placement when transferring to ones intended college or university. The school has many clubs and activities happening throughout the year from CAT Club, The National Honor Society, Chess, Sports, Spanish club and the list goes on.
