This is a great school. Both my children graduated from here and they are both successful, have Masters' Degrees and are doing great. The life's experiences and learning they received from this school were a good part of their success.

I would not recommend this school to anyone with any sense. The quality of academic programs is poor. No AP classes are offered here and honors classes are lacking. Availability of sports is plentiful as sports are held in high regard at LHS. Sports is the only thing holding the school together (even though we lost every single football game in 07-08). Mental skills lag behind in every subject. The facility is old and the county probably won't have the funds to replace it until a large portion of the cement gives way in 20 years. The staff is either old, mad at the world, or should be/have been arrested for inappropriate student-teacher behavior. Parent involvement is basically limited to them coming to their son/daughter's sporting event to watch them lose. Overall, I would rather be home-schooled by an abusive-father, crack-mother, screwed all your best friends-sister, prissy pants-grandpa, and Hitler.
