I love how diverse and inclusive Lyman is; unlike other schools, Lyman doesn't have "popular kids" or "rich kids", everyone just has their own group of friends that works together as a class. Nevertheless, Lyman is an engineering school and I do wish they spent more time and money on improving our magnet program than on advertising athletics (which we definitely are not known for). I also wish there was better communication between administration and students, but overall I love Lyman and I've had an amazing time there!

Regarding to academics (which I believe is the most important rating category here), Lyman offers around 29 AP courses and the courses are interesting. The AP courses intrigue different types of students, making the the students encouraged and determined to take that specific course.

As a junior at the moment, my time here has been decent! I would want Lyman to implement more clubs as well as encouragement from admins and teachers. We only have a small group of active clubs and a whole lot of them don't really feel like a "club." Admin and teachers are only there to encourage us for a few minutes; however, when we do not meet their expectations, there are some teachers who are hopeless in their students. I hope teachers can learn from that and become more motivated with their students.

More about the school: has a lot of school spirit (which I love) and diversity, which I think are the two important thins to the social life here in Lyman.
It is not good at pretty much any sport, besides girls volleyball. Being poor at football tends to lower school spirit. However, because Lyman pulls from all different areas for its magnet program, it is very diverse. The magnet program is engineering and we have access to many good resources. Academically, Lyman is a bit above average compared to other schools. Hardly anyone comes to Lyman if they are hoping to play a sport competitively. On the flip side, our school is very welcoming because we acknowledge and accept other people's differences. We notice that we are diverse, so we do as much as we can to include everyone and boost involvement. Lyman has several different clubs available to everyone, ranging all the way from student government to multicultural club.
