The few students of color and low-income students band together. Most students are rich, white, conservative and obsessive about grades. LGBT students are suprisingly accepted, that is, if you are white and rich. Most students drive to school in expensive cars, sport awful spray tans and wear outdated yet expensive summer wear--yearlong. It's extremely hard to be not rich, not white, and not conservative here. Walking in the hallways I hear things like "F-ck Bernie Sanders! Trump is going to win!" Students here live in Trump's neighborhood and are incredibly loyal to him. One of my teachers started the first day of class by explaining the feats and accomplishments of Hitler, the side that we "didn't learn about."

Lake Norman High School teachers can vary. Most of the teachers I have had in my high school career are amazing! U have had a few teacher who were not as helpful as a resource but I believe most schools have that. Overall the teachers are very hands on and they teach multiple different styles, ones that best benefit the students. They communicate well with what is happening in classes, I have never not known when a test is or quiz. As we all know AP classes grading is stricter then your honors or academic classes but I have never witnessed or hear of any unfair grading. Overall a great school with a great environment.
