Great school. Fun, but academically challenging.

Great school, in all honesty. So many teachers that care and would do so much to help you succeed. The coaches are also some of the best. LNE believes in living above the line. They believe that family comes first, then grades, then sports. Once a rocket, always a rocket. I'm moving and wont be able to graduate from here, and I'm pretty upset about that. I'm so proud to say that I went here. Never seen a school with so much pride. The music, art, and sports here are some of the best. So many talented and welcoming students.
