Overall, I’ve had many amazing experiences at Lyman Hall. My teachers have all been fantastic, and I’ve made memories that’ll last a lifetime! The administration and teachers are fair and truly care about the well being of their students. There are a wide variety of clubs available that will interest just about every student, and the music department is outstanding.

Lyman Hall is a great school, catering to all different types of students. There is a program for those who plan to enter agricultural studies or work (VOAG) and programs for students who plan to major in food science. There are also programs available that benefit those who plan to enter the world of auto-body and engineering. The teachers do not waste time and put all of their efforts into being the best educators one can imagine. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to participate in our programs and demonstrates Lyman Hall Trojan spirit!
LHHS provides its students with the necessary resources to pursue education in most mainstream subjects and even some more niche ones, should a student be interested. It provides students with the opportunity to take AP classes and exams as early as Freshman and Sophomore year, and most teachers are often available for extra help and discussion of materials after school and during office hours. There are many extracurricular activities available to students, from clubs to sports to theatre, and there is an abundance of nice staff and students with whom great relationships can be formed... attending LHHS brings a worthwhile experience to those who seek it!
