Lyons High School Reviews
Lyons gives a great opportunity to get involved throughout high school. The teachers are very good and show that they only want the best for us students. Lyons I feel like is not getting me ready for college, it is getting those who are going straight into the work force a great oppotunity to get a job after graduation.
I liked the sense of small community and how everyone was friends with everyone. The administration is very businesslike in the sense of they treat every student as if they are their co-worker. While I am glad to have gon to Lyons High School I found the curriculum to not be demanding and grueling fo myself. Since the school is very small a variety of extracurriculars and AP classes are not offered to the higher students. The school tended to favor the lower to average students. I am glad to have attended Lyons High School and I belive it happened for a reason.
The students are very close to one another however, they can't always express themselves because of the strictness when it comes to spirit week and cheering on sporting events. The teachers and students are wanted to have more school spirit however, when asked to do certain activities encouraging school spirit their requests get rejected.
I really enjoyed being at Lyons High school because it felt like home. The teachers were so nice and would help you in anything that you needed. They atmosphere was friendly. I felt safe and felt accepted there.
To me, it felt like the school focused way too much on sports and not enough on the fine arts, and I really hope that that will change in the near future. I also think it would be good if the teachers held more review sessions for tests, both standardized and not.
My overall experience at this school has been okay. The school has some excellent qualities and some okay qualities. Most teachers care about students and help tend to help the students who want to thrive. Some of the teachers don't know what they are teaching or they don't find the best ways to teach everyone at once. They help each individual/group one at a time instead of the whole class at once. I didn't like when teachers gave you a worksheet and expected you to fill it out reading a text book or article off the internet.
