It’s a great campus if you are involved in things in order to make wonderful memories. The school work is what everyone doesn’t like but honestly everything is infront of you! As long as you keep up with notes and ask questions you should be fine. Always ask questions even if it sound quite stupid, you are there for an education and you want to make it a great experience not a bad one.

Robert E. Lee is a highschool with an average student population, and some great teachers and administrators. Sadly, there are also teachers and administrators who do not care about the learning and well being of the students. During my 4 years of attendance at REL I helped many people with homework that their teachers assigned without explanation, calmed many friends frustrated with their learning, and was required to leave a class due to issues with the teacher. I was a 4.0 student and in the top 10% of my graduating class, I wasn't a problem student and neither were my friends. We were simply dissatisfied with the teaching abilities of several of our educators.
My experience at Robert E. Lee High School was average. My four years there was nothing special. I went to school and passed my classes was involved in after school activities, and I had friends. The change i would like to see is the faculty. Not one faculty member was helpful or encouraging to me, although there were good teachers they just did the absolute least for their students. Like, of they weren't getting paid to do it then they weren't gonna let it waste their time.
