Lancaster High School has been great to me. If I had to do it all over again, my high school of choice would, again, be Lancaster High! I've made some of my favorite memories at countless events such as football, baseball, soccer games etc. and have even been able to host one of our amazing, energetic pep rallies. Our spirit weeks aren't the only time you'd see a massive amount of school spirit being displayed. The teachers are caring, the students are friendly, the campus is vast and appealing, and our school events are so creative and fun. I have so much love for my school and all the staff and students in it, we are all connected!

Being in the after-school competitive marching band class, I personally loved the quality of that particular after school program, and being in that one extracurricular class made my stay at the school much more fun. There were several different after-school sports teams and clubs to choose from as well, such as football, basketball, baseball, soccer, wrestling, golf, and cheer leading, among others. There was also dance teams, and the prestigious robotics team as well. However, since I wasn't in any of these organizations besides the band, and can't speak for them regarding the administration and parental support, or the level of commitment. Speaking for how I felt about the marching band, though, I feel as if it could (or should) have gotten a bit more administration support. The level of commitment each year was very good after band camp, and since it was a class, it was in each student's best interest to be there every day on time. I felt like the parental support was pretty good, and the return rate of alumni to watch practices and competitions were moderately high.

I believe that the school was not great in terms of academic achievement, but not necessarily poor, either. Something that I enjoyed about the school was that I felt there were a wide range of class options available; from AP and Honors STEM courses to wind ensembles to courses on graphic and video game design, and many things in between. I felt that the teachers were also of decent quality as well. However, the overall feel and air of the school was somewhat apathetic. There wasn't much stress on the students to work particularly hard, and many of the students didn't seem to interested in being involved in multiple subjects, so it felt like most students just simply "went with the flow" of life. Of course, there were some outliers, but the majority of students didn't seem very concerned with high academic achievement, which affected how well or how poorly we were able to push each other to achieve individual academic success.
