  • Excellent curriculum. My ninth grade son is required to take JROTC and after freshman year can take as an elective. The school uniforms are also great. There are never fights and the school is extremely clean!

  • We love the school. The students are required to wear school uniforms and my children get individual attention from the teachers. I think LHS is one of the better schools in the area.

  • The School Needs more help there never is any toilet paper in the bathrooms there is BIG roaches running around and taking over our school. There are people talking about hurting other people and people taking drugs and smoking in the school and on school grounds there is nothing that is being done about the smell of old nasty baby dippers in the hall way (which the teachers say it is the bug spray ha then way aren't they dieng)! There some teachers that don't really know how to teach right.
