There were many changes being made the whole time I was attending. The teachers were helpful with answering questions and furthering the educations of the students. They knew where to direct you if they did not know the answer to a question asked of them. The teachers were also open and nice with their students, creating a good working atmosphere. The food could've been better, though there were a variety of options. The administration was also very helpful in readying students for college, whether that was through AP courses offered in school or online, or duel enrolling at the nearby community college.

Ludington High School offers a multitude of ways for all students to get involved, whether it’s by sports, the arts, or other clubs. There is a place for each student and all of their interests. When someone is in need, the staff and the teachers rally to accommodate anyone. They are also always encouraging and want the best for all of the students here. For these reasons and so many more, I would like to come back to Ludington and raise my family here.
After four long years, I have seen teachers who care about you becoming smarter, not just learning the state mandated curriculum. The arts department is thriving, even with dwindling funds from the school. The only thing I have seen go down hill is student participation. I believe this starts with student lead activities, specifically within student council and yearbook. These things have seen less and less participation and really need a boost before the school ends the programs.
