Robert E. Lee High School Reviews

248 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Robert E. Lee High School
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.
Robert E. Lee is a passable high school at best. It has a great music program, a good football program, but everything else is kinda bland. There is a wide variety of students, as far as groups, races, beliefs, etc. That being said. for every good person, you get an equally disgusting person. That's just to be expected with people, though. The food is bad, and you will likely find yourself getting the same meal every day for your high school career. The administration is little more than people collecting paychecks, and generally don't see the students as anything but dawdling children. The education does what it needs to do, and is nothing exceptional. The state of the school is deplorable. One restroom has had the toilet paper permanently removed. In another bathroom, the only sink that consistently works has been leaking for a month, and doesn't seem to be getting repaired any time soon. The ceiling tiles have brown spots from leaks, and some tiles are missing entirely.
