This school as so amazing...one of the best I have ever attended. The teachers care about students and go above and beyond for each and everyone. the after school programs are great and centered around what the student would like for it to be. Chess club, gamers club, yearbook you name it- they have it or can create it. They also have a field studies program that runs Tuesday's and Thursday's and it allows for your child to explore the city and learn about different religions and cultures. This is one of the best things as it opens a Childs eyes to other ideas than they know.
Lyons is not you average school, even though I gave it an average rate. What made me fall in love in love with Lyons and stayed from 6th grade until graduation this upcoming year, is that there is so much love in the atmosphere. The teachers really care about you and how well you do in classes. They try to make learning a fun experience and remember-able . What I also love about Lyons is the program called PGC that they have installed into the freshman's lives. PGC means Peer Group Connection. The program consist of selected 18 students from either junior or senior year who spend their time in and out of the 9th grade classrooms helping them adapt to high school and being an older brother or sister to them. What I dislike about Lyons Community School most is that I feel that some kids get more attention in class and leeway when it comes to the rules. In order for us to grow up and become responsible and advocate for ourselves we must face the consequences that are placed.
