Anything below four stars is a CPS problem, not Lane Tech. There are costs and benefits to attending a high school of over 4,000 people. The school is diverse and presents several opportunities for students.

It has been a very fun experience for me at Lane. The pep rallies and the football games are some of the many things that I have enjoyed.

What makes this school unique is the environment. While it is virtually impossible to get to know everyone that walks around in the school due to its sheer size, finding the group of friends you feel most comfortable with is not a problem. My favorite experiences include being in band all four years and becoming an officer of the now nonexistent Pokemon Club. If I could do sophomore year, the beginning of junior year, and senior year over again, I would do it with no hesitation.
