Lyme-Old Lyme High School Reviews
Lyme Old Lyme High School is one of the best schools for education I have heard. I agree with this statement because the past 3 years have been such an experience! I have learned so much from the teachers, and I really do love how close students can become with the teachers here at Lyme Old Lyme High School. I feel as if I have been able to learn better with the connections I have personally made with my teachers. The school is always looking for more and more to offer the students with hands on activities throughout the year to bond with the school which I think is absolutely awesome! The school offers many sports and also sports to join with other schools because we have a small school but the students on these specific teams always say it has been a great experience for them to bond and be a team with another school. Overall, I believe Lyme Old Lyme High School is a great place to be!
The relationships between students and teachers at LOLHS is amazing- very personal and understanding. Curriculum is lacking a tad, however the school gives a lot of effort to hear student's opinions to fix them. School's clubs are diverse, however some are more favorited than others. They make sure the school's atmosphere is a positive one as well, almost like a family.
A great academic environment that also fosters great opportunities for the arts. Most of the faculty are professional and enthusiastic about teaching. The student body varies with each class but a large portion of it is privileged rich kids. Fortunately the environment is not too cliquey and has its perks such as the awesome lunch system and classrooms. The arts department is amazing and the tech/engineering department is good for a small school. The administration is a little strict when it comes to random safety making the atmosphere sometimes strained. But the reason I gave it 4 stars is because the school prepares students to be college ready, even if we don't do anything. Just by attending this school I raised my chances of being accepted by certain colleges that I wouldn't normally have been accepted to.
