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.

Lubbock High School was one of the best experiences I have had in my life so far. If you want to see GREAT results in your academic life, this is the place to be. It is by far the flagship school of LISD. I built great relationships with both peers and faculty that I know would be useful in the years to come. Lubbock High is known nationally for it's academics and it is something they take pride in. The school spirit is ridiculous. Expect large student crowds at any type of sporting event. Students bleed black and gold and do nothing but represent the Westerners well!
I transferred to Lubbock High going into sophomore year. I was immediately greeted by friendly teachers and students in all 8 of my rigorous classes including physics, chemistry, and calculus. The teachers excel at their job and have helped me learn wonderful study habits and tricks. The school is full of self-motivated people who strive all the time to get their work finished. The IB program is exceptional! It is very difficult but well worth every minute of my time being taught History, English, or Theory of Knowledge by three of the best teachers in the district. I recommend Lubbock High School to everyone looking for a school, regardless of the location of residence. LHS is 110% worth everything.
