    At Lutheran High School South you are guaranteed much more than an excellent education, but you are also promised to be surrounded by people that are kind and care about you. I love my high school because it taught me how to treat my peers and authority figures with respect. It also taught me how to create goals for myself that would help me be successful in my career. One of the key teachings that Lutheran South really reiterated was work ethic. They taught me to work hard in everything I do, even when I think I might fail. Although Lutheran South taught me things I will be never forget, it did have a few flaws. The campus was very outdated, they have an infestation of cockroaches, and there's always that one teacher you don't get along with. But no matter how many roaches or teachers I disliked, it would never be able to take away the amazing experience I've had at this school. I am proud to be called a Lancer!

    I felt incredibly prepared academically, socially, and spiritually for college and beyond after attending LHSS. The challenging and engaging curriculum fostered academic growth and success both inside and outside of the classroom. The faculty and staff didn't just teach students content in the classroom, but different methods for learning and studying that material. The study skills I gained during my time at Lutheran South are skills that I carried with me to college, and now to graduate school. All of this being done in an environment that keeps Christ at the center of its focus. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Lutheran South!
    This school is very overrated. Though some of the teachers are very nice and relaxed, there are some teachers that treat students like crap if you don’t perform well in their class, even the nice/friendly teachers don’t act like this. It disheartens me to have to see my child come home from school with tears in their eyes and it wasn’t even the kids’ fault but the teacher(s’) fault! Unbelievable.
