    Academics: There isn't much to say. I've had both good and bad teachers, but if you were to ask me what I've learned in my time in high school, I'd have no idea how to answer. Some teachers care and genuinely want students to learn while others make it very clear they don't want to be bothered by us. I make above average grades, so if a teacher's method doesn't help me, I do research on my own and I'll just accept making a B or a low A. There are definitely a few stand out teachers though. Ask the students and they'll point them out. That single digit amount of teachers that love their work and try their hardest to educate us are the ones that make school worth going to. You're lucky if you meet any of those few. The rest are unremarkable. I'm sure they worked hard for their degrees, but don't go to LCHS expecting to get a top notch education.

    Student Culture & Diversity: There isn't much to say about the diversity. Due to our schedules, cliques don't form and I'm able to meet a decent amount of different people. We're a predominantly black school, but still pretty welcoming to other races and religions. However, if you're openly not straight, your chances of making friends are now limited to the more quirky, awkward people which you may or may not like. We don't get many chances to be involved in what happens in the school though. Rules have gotten stricter and even with clubs like student council, we don't get much of a say in anything.

    Extracurriculars: There aren't many clubs offered, but that's mainly because there isn't a lot done to promote them. Most people don't know about anything other than art club or sports, even though we have Future Farmers of America and Future Business Leaders of America. Clubs also don't get a lot of funding. I'm in Reading Bowl, which I love and it's probably the only club I seriously wanted to join when I heard about it.

    Overall Experience: It wasn't the curriculum or even the teachers that made my experience less than satisfactory. It was the students. They disrupt class, they scream and fight on the buses, and they're just loud and obnoxious. The worst part of this is that this doesn't make up all the students. It's actually a pretty small group but every year and every grade has a significant amount of horrible students. They're out of control, in and out of ISS and whatever other punishments they get have no effect on their behavior. This isn't the fault of the school, but I definitely wouldn't go back.

    Teachers: For the most part, my teachers have been unmemorable and not particularly helpful. This is mainly because I usually don't need much help with my studies but for the students who do need extra help, there isn't much that's done for them. Tutoring is offered, but it's usually just a review of notes then you're sent home. They're normally quick to reply to emails but often slow in updating their grades on Powerschool. Our school's teachers have a wide range of teaching styles. This is both good and bad. A few are fun, lively, and genuinely interested in students learning. Others are no-nonsense types, which isn't necessarily bad, but not helpful when you can clearly tell that teacher doesn't want to be bothered with your concerns. Collectively, they're good teachers, nothing remarkable or overly negative to say about them.
