Robert E Lee lives out the phrase " it's good for you, it builds character". We have every culture, every ethnicity, and everyone from every socioeconomic back ground. This teaches you how to help others from different back grounds as well as how to be around others.Any one can create a club and join.Personally a group of us including my self started our bass fishing team, and the club to go with it. We currently have eight teams that compete in tournaments which include two people on each team. Most of our teams like volley ball ,baseball, and basket ball allwaysmake playoffs. we also have state finalist in pole vault. We offer duel credit and AP classes. Also we offer the career and technology center which creates real life opportunities for kids to see what they want to do with their lives and even get degrees and certification through state of the art facility's.Overall I wish everyone could have the experience that I had at Robert E.

parent of a child who is a senior. REL has consistently let me down with their lack of encouragement, communication, stability, consistency, and follow through. The few stellar teachers there are limited in their resources and generally leave after a few years. The remaining teachers that are less then stellar are unconnected to anything but their peer politics and gossip. Almost no college preparedness or resources. No push to keep students on task for post graduate school. Pretty much you are on your own for trying to find resources for school assistance, course guidance, and encouragement.
One of Robert E Lee's greatest characteristics is the opportunities the students have. There are many different organizations each kid can be involved in, such as a great Student Council organization, Spanish club, excellent sports teams, and more. Some of the downfalls of Lee is how little the students are informed with school activities and major changes in school expectations, not all teachers are on board with each other, and the facilities are below average and have been for a while. Over all Lee is a great school, there are just a few minor problems.
