    Overall Experience: I cannot complain about the high school I currently attend. It is a great school with great programs (ex. JROTC). There is the elite few in the school that focus on their grades and self-improvement. The remaining students don't take school as seriously. However, my personal philosophy is that those who choose to succeed will.

    Overall Experience: My Overall experience at Lancaster since I'm going into my last year of high school, everyone is usually nonchalant and cool no one really cares. Our security isn't really the best. Everyone respects our special needs kids. We're well balanced school. There are some teachers that are very interested in helping you and give you life advice when your in class but some teachers are just teaching you what you need to learn and don't really help as much. Sports are okay as well my personal favorite is swim.
