    Overall Experience: Teachers are highly interactive as both teachers as well as mentors. Athletics are steadily increasing in popularity and success while clubs benefit from being largely student lead yet teacher guided. LCHS is a great school to both learn efficiently and get involved with multiple extracurriculars to grow students.

    Overall Experience: Lee County High School has overall been a nice experience. My teachers have more often than not been good, although I have had a few problematic teachers during my time at the high school. The teachers enjoy what they are doing and it is obvious by the way they communicate with students during and after class. Teachers try hard to make assignments enjoyable and give use some control over our projects. The overall atmosphere of Lee County High School is like a classic high school. My school is a football school, so half my schools is super spirited and prideful of their Alma Mater and the other half, myself included, could care less about sports in general.
