Lyons Middle/Senior High School Reviews

I came to Lyons as a sophomore and initially loved it. I was such a stark contrast to my previous school. However, as the remaining three years flew by, Lyons' flaws quickly became apparent. For example, in 2015 nearly half the graduating class was titled "valedictorian." They have since stopped doing that and now only recognized the top ten percent during graduation and name the top two with their respective title, but it was little things like this that justify the score I rated Lyons'. I also believe that Lyons' is lacking in the opportunities presented to students. Chess club and book club are the only two consistent clubs at Lyons, which is frusterating when you're trying to get involved with the school and make new friends who share similar interests. But thats the trade-off, I guess, for being apart of such a close knit community.

So far, Lyons has been a very wonderful school. I am going to be a senior in high school this year. I have met some very nice people and get along with almost everyone. I really enjoy the small atmosphere; the student to teacher ratio is a decent size. I am able to meet with teachers, get help and communicate without problems.
I was drawn to Lyons by its small town roots. Everyone knows everyone, there aren't cliques and people are generally welcoming and nice!
I enjoy the support from the staff and administrators in our daily lives inside as well as outside of school. There is, however, the occasional disruption be that a bad call as far as punishments go (someone getting away with or being punished to harshly) but there is only minor bouts of that.
