I really like the small school feel that we have here. All of the students get to develop close friendships, and parents are really involved too. Class sizes are smaller than maybe most schools and it makes it easier for the teachers to really get to know the students better. And of course, every student probably believes that the lunch room food could always be better.

Lyon County High School overall is a good high school. The school has helped me pursue a college education. In my duration of attending Lyon County High School, I was able to take multiple dual credit classes, and in result I ended with 19 credits. The only fault of attending this school is the last two years of high school my English classes were not helpful at teaching me anything, and I was not confident in my writing skills. However, overall Lyon County High School is a good high school.
Lyon County High School will only prepare you for college if you apply yourself. Several of my classmates dropped out after one year because they found the work to be too challenging. AP classes are a great way to prepare for college but often times the material seems to be more than the teachers can handle. This is a small, rural town with limited resources and a significant lack of diversity which can result in a bit of a culture shock for students who apply to out of state colleges. The school may benefit from encouraging more students to attend trade school rather than college preparatory classes.
