    Extracurriculars: The array of extracurricular activities is so overwhelming, it's hard to pick a day where at least one or two of your friends AREN'T busy doing something after school.

    Overall Experience: When I started here in 2012, the term "ramily' had just been forged. It describes the family bond between all of the student Rams. It was apparent at every event that this school had each other's backs.

    Teachers: Lake Mary is easily one of the best schools in the county, if not the state. While it has its own share of the typical high school drama and cliques, etc., it is overwhelmingly a wonderful place to learn. I would say nearly every single teacher I had was extremely competent, genuine, and well versed in their subject. Not only are they well qualified, but nearly every teacher was excited about their classes and even more so about getting to know their students and provide extra help if needed. The care and support goes beyond the classroom, and it is very easy to feel safe and at home in this school. My four years were a wonderful time, and I would recommend this school to anyone in a heartbeat. The academics, the sports, the family-like support, it's all there.

    Overall Experience: I love my school and everything it has to offer. Everyone at the school is open to new ideas and it's extremely easy to make friends! Events such as pep rallys, winter week, and sporting events support our school's "family" approach.

    Teachers: I feel as if though I am in a safe environment in regards to the teachers. They are all warm and welcoming and often provide resources to solve many and most problems presented. They grant us the opportunity to set up class chats such as "Remind101" to accommodate both the students questions and aid overall understanding.
