I see the growth and support the growth excellent principal and staff a very caring community.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 30, 2006

My children ages 24 to 8 years have attended LJHS. I can see the positive changes in the school over the years. I know in time this will become one of the best schools in Sumter County because of the parental involvement and after school activities. The quality of academics could be better in that more gifted and talented classes should be made available such as foreign languages and theater. More activities such as a junior band team should be added. The after school programs made available to the students has enhanced the overall rating of the school. The k-4 activity center is a plus. Dr. Fred Primm is a plus for the schools also. The establishing of the Church and School Partnership is also a plus plus for the school because it ensures parental involvement remains at a high level for all the schools in Sumter County.
