  • Just to let everyone reading this know...It's high school. Drama Happens. It doesn't matter where you go, it's who you talk to. Drama is not something that happens around you, you have some part in it for it to actually affect you. This is my third high school, and the drama here is no different than the drama anywhere else. Hate to be the one to break it to you, but that's just what high school is. It can be a great place if you actually want to try and go somewhere with your life, otherwise of course you think its going to suck.

  • LHS has some amazeing teachers. i started there my jr. year and was pretty well welcomed in. every one is either nice or they ignore you. compared to the last lake county high school i attended lhs has thier business very well put together. every school has thier flaws but i have never seen a hateful racist act. and the only ones i heard of were controlled or addresses by the staff as usual. i feel pretty safe there after witnessing the actions staff took when a student fainted in class, and how quickly they are to act in bomb threats and breaking up fights. thier pretty well on top of things. theres alot of kids from diffrent back grounds so theres bound to be tension and problems it's a school. so of course kids arnt gonna like it. but i happen to think its pretty okay and theres some rough teachers and people but you have to learn to deal with it.

  • its really funny because if you were to look at all of the following peoples grades, with the last two being an exception, i woulb bet almost anything to say that those peoples grades wuold really reflect their intelligence and their inability to critisize something to which they are completely oblivious to what the good things that go on aroud here actually are!!!!!!!!
