Mt. Lebanon Senior High School Reviews

I would definitely choose this school over others because of the great education, teachers, and student life. One of my favorite events that my school puts on twice a year is our spirit assembly! All the students sit with the kids from their elementary school and each school puts up students to compete in different, fun events! The school who does the best in the events wins! That is just one of the many amazing experiences that I have had during my time at Mt. Lebanon High School.
Review Mt. Lebanon Senior High School
The school was extremely helpful in preparing me for college and I believe I had a higher quality of education than most students in the state. The school atmosphere, however, was haughty and unwelcoming, and the amount of diversity shockingly low.
Mt. Lebanon is a very accepting school district, giving teenagers ample opportunity to excel and perform at the level at which they are comfortable. Although the academics can be challenging the teachers do work with the students to help solve problems and make their learning career fit to their liking.
