On Teachers: The teachers at Lake Norman know what they're doing. They are consistent and knowledgable. I have favorite teachers that were super fun and supportive. I also have favorite teachers who were incredibly inspiring. Some teachers have better teaching techniques than others. Somes classes I feel like I've learned so much academically and for myself. And some classes I feel like I memorized material just for the moment. And to add, some teachers, only a small few, were terribly inconsistent and unfair.

On Overall Experience: I've had a great experience at this school so far. I am arising senior andi cannot wait to get invoked with all the upcoming activities and events. I love how the school tries to make fun extra things to do while also striving for success. I've learned a lot at this school. I've made great friends that i hope to continue to stay in touch with. I would recommend lake norman to anyone, honestly. Again, i have always felt comfortable here at Lake Norman High. Everyone here essentially comes from a commonplace.

On Academics: Anyone can choose to take academic, honors, or AP classes. Depending on which level of difficulty one chooses, depends of the amount of workload and challenges offered. The curriculum never changes on the subject, the amount of depth gone into the subject changes. As for the scheduling process, students pick eight classes with four alternates. Then, the staff puts together everyone's schedule. Schedule changes are allowed up to a certain degree.

On Food: I personally never buy school lunch. It's never been appealing to me. There have never been a bunch of healthy options other than a regular salad. It always seems to be the same options each day: chicken with a side of fries. However, there is an abundance of snack and drink options.

On Extracurriculars: School club meetings occur before or after school for a minimum of 30 minutes. In order to start a club, one needs a teacher to sponsor it. There are so many clubs to join at Lake Norman, I don't even know all of my options. Some clubs require service hours, some require participation. Some require invitation to join, some allow anyone to join. My favorite is art club because I get to spend time with my friends in a creative environment.
