I enjoy attending Lathrop High School. I am an engineering student and enjoy all of my classes in engineering. The engineering room (One of, if not the best in the state) contains it's own computer lab and 2 smartboards. (each computer has an i7 intel with SSD) The engineering room also has a workshop space with three 3D printers, a laser engraver, a CNC plasma cutter, a CNC router, and many other machines and workshop tools. Finaly, There is a separate room that is part of the engineering complex. This is the robotics room. It has tons of materials and parts for building robots. Lathrop High School participates in the regional robotics tournament and sent several teams to the state competition last year. Beyond engineering, Lathrop also has an excellent Japanese program. Lathrop has a Japanese sister school, Hashimoto Highschool and every year, either students from lathrop visit hashimoto, or students from hashimoto visit Lathrop. I could go on and on about Lathrop's Music program, their off campus lunches, the superb sports teams and friendly teachers at Lathrop. I enjoy attending Lathrop and encourage anyone looking for a school to go there.
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 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.
