lathrop is the best school a student can ask for. The students are great, the teachers are great. The classes are amazing. Lathrop was the one of the first schools since the 67' flood but it was named FAIRBANKS H.S. Overall LHS is good 5 stars alll the way

Lathrop Is an Excellent High school to send your Children to. Its friendly and safe atmosphere is an excellent place to learn. Plus this school has many AP classes that are nowhere else in the region.

Lathrop High School has a strong academic program for a range of students from those needing extra help to highly motivated students seeking advanced placement college level courses. Nearby army base provides for a diverse student body.

There are only two concerns that I have about this school. Lack of saftey, and overpacked lunchtime. As far as the saftey goes, it is not that there are not enough people patroling the halls, but the fact that there are so many students and no one can be everywhere at once. As far as the lunch goes, everyone eats at the same time. This allows for no control. Students are allowed to eat pretty much anywhere in the building. There should be at least 4 lunch times. Where the student body is broken down to more managable sizes. While one group is in the cafeteria, the others should be in class.

Great school overall. I thought the teachers were great. The quality of the academic programs were excellent. The teachers would go out of there way to help their students out if they needed it. There are so many opportunities to get involved with extra curricular programs ranging from baseball to basketball and so many clubs they could be involved with.
