I am currently a sophomore at Littleton High School and came to Littleton High School from a Jeffco School. I wanted to go to Littleton because I liked their IB program and passing rate. But when I came to Littleton High School, I wasn't prepared for the way they taught me. I tried to ask the teachers for help but they didn't want to help me or had other classmates answer my question for them. I don't feel that the staff is well-trained. Also most of the teachers are mean and some AP and IB teachers curse their students. I have personally experienced this. Take my word, these school is not worth going to. They only focus on their IB students. If you are planning to go to Littleton, either for AP or IB, just realize that this school will give you a butt load of homework. I am usually up doing homework until 2 am. Hope this helps make your decision.
This school has absolutely marvelous teachers who really care about the students and are extremely responsible. The principal Dr. Oaks is a strong and enthusiastic leader. Kids choice into this school from all over Denver, Littleton, and other surrounding areas for the great classes as well as the outstanding IB program. The arts classes at this school are amazing. Students are encouraged to try new things and participate in many different activities. This school is Down-to-Earth and non-pretentious.
Excellent school. Could not ask for a better experience. We have two daughters, one who graduated in 2009, and one to graduate in 2011. We open enfroll from out of district, and felt that this was one of the best options in South Denver. Language Arts, Science, and Performing Arts are all top notch. You will easily find a place here without the snobbery of the nearby Douglas County High Schools. A+ rating, send your kids here, you won't be sorry!
I'm alumni of Littleton High School, and my high school experience was outstanding. Between the teachers, the environment, and everything, it was just a great deal of fun. Go Lions!
Littleton High School is one of Colorado's top high schools for many reasons. First of all, Littleton High School has created an engaging learning environment that encourages students to achieve their full academic potential. Students learn in a collaborative and supportive style that develops lifelong learners. Littleton High School offers regular academic classes, Honors Classes, Advanced Placement, IB Classes and Special Needs Classes. The richness of this broad academic offering is unparallelled. Secondly, Littleton recognizes that diversity is a strength and can better prepare students for life beyond Littleton. Students learn to appreciate differences, collaborate in solving problems and are being prepared to be great global citizens. Third, Littleton offers a broad range of extracurricular programs with the encouragement students to try as many of them as possible. The complete high school experience - excellence in academics, raising social awarenes and broad extracurricular participation makes Littleton High School an extraordinary experience.
As a parent of a sophmore here I think that this school is one of the best in the metro area. There are not many like this one around anymore, all students are encouaged to participate in any and all things that intrest them, and the staff is more than outstanding. Parents are involved to the point that during some functions some have to be turned away from helping because we get in eachothers way...lol Just an AWSOME plsce.
I am currently a student at LHS and I think it is a great school. This school has great teachers and fun classes. Almost everyone is kind and not snobbish at all. There is a lot of different electives to chose from, there are technology, theater, painting and music classes. There are also lots of afterschool programs. Overall, its a very good school.
it is a great school, but here is too many off periods. the classes give too much hw. the schoole has no diversity at all. It is very snobby, cliquey
This is an amazing school and I'd recommend it to anyone. I'm currently a junior at LHS and I love this school very much. There's so much to do in terms of activities and the curriculum's great and challenging. And then there's the fun awesome classes like Painting and Drama. There's also the IB Program, which I'm in, so I don't know that much about it as yet. There's a play and a musical every year that the students put on and so, they've all been great. There a a great musical a few years ago called Urinetown; you had to pay to pee. lol It was pretty funny. There's all different kinds of students here and everyone's nice. It's very easy to make friends too, and I don't talk much either. So if you're out going and social, you'll have no problem at all!
LHS provides a challenging curriculum and a great enviornment to learn in. Littleton High School has prepaired me for better things to come.
The preparation Littleton gave me made college a breeze. I was able to do the IB program, become fluent in Spanish, make All-State Choir, win two Swimming State Championships, and be an All-American. I know Littleton from the perspective of a motivated, talented student, and if your students are driven to succeed, they have more tools at their disposal at Littleton than at Arapahoe and Heritage.
Teachers are very dedicated and interested in the student's success. Drama and music departments are excellent. The faculty focus on the kids who want to learn.
I have a freshman who is PreIB. We as a family have felt warmly welcomed to the school. He is challenged in the upper level classes but the classes that all students are required to take are simplistic.
All three of my children graduated from Littleton High. They found the classes challenging and the teachers accessible and supportive. As a parent I found the teachers communicative with the home and always available to help understand my kids position in the growing world.
Littleton High School has provided an excellent environment for our student. The teachers and staff have taken the time to know our student as an individual. Our student has been specifically, individually invited to participate in school sports and activities, providing great connection to the school.
LHS offers an excellent IB program. It is the most rigorous program a high school can offer. LHS is a small school but it offers a variety of extracurricular activities.
This is a very good high school academically, but as I student I found minimal diversity. The international Bacheloreate Program is a great jump-start for those who are willing to follow a single track program for four years straight through. Send your kids there if they want to do this program. However, the school did not seem to offer as many options for students who did not want to follow this curriculum. It would be nice if more alternatives were offered. Personally, I had more of an interest in art and writing and dropped IB, partly to pursue these interests. The administration is excellent, and a majority of the teachers are very good, although there are a few rotten apples thrown in the batch. The good teachers definitely outnumber the bad, so it is worth dealing with some frustration caused by a handful of losers.
School has a fairly good special ed program. Freshman Academy is not all it claims to be. It is too lax with students. Most students in FA are troubled. Dean of students shows no consistency where problem students are concerned.
LHS has regular classes, AP or advanced placement classes, and the IB program. This draws students from throughout the Denver Area. The student is allowed to excel. Engineers from Lockheed Martin come twice every week from seven to nine p.m. to tutor the AP and IB students in upper level math, chemistry and physics. The teacher's as a group are excellent but are restricted by the administration.
