I liked the programs offered by Lufkin High School such as STEM Academy and the Gifted and Talented program. They give students a great opportunity to apply their learning into real-life situations. There are also announcements every morning discussing the activities of sports and clubs. The students are very friendly and the counseling office helps the students with any problem they may have such as questions about volunteer events, college, or mental health. Overall for a small-town high school, I'm definitely glad I got the chance to go there.

After attending Lufkin High School for 3 years I can say that going to school here is a place that feels like home. Now some days I may dread coming, but it’s because I’m stressed, I have a test, practice, or maybe I just didn’t get enough sleep. Anyhow, LHS is filled with many opportunities! Either they be academic or social. Most of the teachers, coaches, and counselors strive to best help the students. I’m glad to be a part of this school and am definitely sad this will be my last year here.
I attend Lufkin High School, which is located in Lufkin, TX. I am also a sophomore. At Lufkin High School there is a very diverse population which gives off many different ideas and vibes throughout the school. The teachers at this school are nice and very voluntary when it comes to helping students better their grades. Although, some teachers are very hard and make it difficult to pass their class, this only makes the students experience what college is like. Our school is very competitive when it comes to UIL completions or Athletics. In our football this year we made it to the 4th round! There are a lot of students at this school that care about their academics and want to better themselves.
