Lunenburg High School Reviews

As a minority student, I struggled with biased teachers in the math and science departments. Teachers in those departments would constantly pick on me or call me out for having a different background make assumptions about my religion. Some teachers would purposefully give me lower grades while leniently grading the non-minority students. When I tried to report this, the board would not take my complaints seriously. The humanities had some amazing teachers. Mr. Stevenson was one of the kindest and most qualified teachers I ever encountered. He made this high school bearable. If you are a parent of black or brown children, do not send your children here. The administration is biased and not hospitable to people of color.

I am a senior at Lunenburg High School. I have been in the Lunenburg public school system since 4th grade and I enjoy attending Lunenburg High School. We have a brand new high school/middle school building that is beautiful. We have a new principal, superintendent and athletic director, so we are experiencing some growing pains. I believe the new administration is an improvement and will eventually accomplish great things. I believe some of the teachers should be replaced, however. I think the administration should pay closer attention to the quality of the teachers and pay higher salaries to attract better teachers. I really enjoy the sports program and the sports that are offered. Most of the teams do well and make playoffs each year. There is a problem finding coaches for some sports, so sometimes teachers in the school end up being coaches. This can sometimes cause a conflict.
I had my share of teachers I loved and those that were a bit challenging. The academics were very good. We had a large variety of classes and special equipment for those classes. I enjoyed the art and science classes the best, but the other classes were all enjoyable as well.
