Lyons Township Highschool has an amazing academic experience. Teachers are great at
providing an educational environment, while also, connecting with students on a personal level. Diversity tends to be overlooked at times although, it is talked about. Expenses of meals could be reduced slightly, as they tend to get pricey. Free lunch could be more accessible to students with low income. There are plenty of college resources to help students get an education that is appropriate for them. Safety around the school is taken into account. Clubs, activities and sports are very abundant and also tend to be costly but have alot to offer. Administration and counselors are excellent at working with students to solve issues regarding their academics or issues outside of school. Overall, Lyons Township is a great institution for reaching for your educational ambitions.

Lyons Township offers a wide variety of class options. From Scuba diving to Sports Medicine, Sociology and even Exercise Physiology! The education is rich and the resources are immense. The staff is very helpful and allows students to reach their full potential.
Lyons Township is a great school, especially for the amount of kids that attend and the large area of jurisdiction the school has. The school performs very well academically, with many students able performing well in spite of the traditional factors that can adversely affect academic performance, like household income and learning disabilities. The curriculum also provides many unique and niche classes you won't find in many other high schools and there are countless clubs and sports to join that can suit pretty much any interest you have. The school is very diverse and tolerant, with many students taking pride in culture, heritage, and identity. Whether you are a person of color or a member of the LGBTQ+ community. The only negatives in my opinion is the student culture which can toxic at times and the food, with not much healthy food being available.
