I will be graduating from Lanier on May 21st, 2016 and my experience at Lanier has been nice. My teachers are supportive and motivating. I'm a proud poet!

The reason why I chose the rating as "It's okay" because it's not the best and it's not the worst either. We have numerous of children who act like hooligans, and think it's all fine & dandy interrupting other people's learning process. For example, during assemblies, people are very rude. I've witnessed the crowd laugh at people who was on the stage. I've heard people judge every single person that they saw and so much more. To talk about school spirit? It SUCKS. 0%. The principal tries to keep everyone together but he needs 100% cooperation from the students and he can't get that. It's like we're a family, but we're not.

My experience at Sidney Lanier High School these past two years have been great. I am on the basketball team, and I am also apart of many different clubs there such as National Honor Society, The Medical Club, and The Fellowship of Christian Students. If I were given the opportunity to attend this school again, I would. I feel like it is worth attending, its about how you see your school and how you would portray it.
