I agree with the spirit of the review below, but it's totally not representative of our school. We don't have fights or drug issues, and are a pretty "sheltered" community compared to 90% of high schools. We've got a much more tight-knit community than AHS or HHS and our school is slightly more diverse, less judgmental, and more accepting... But that doesn't mean we're a complacent student body of druggies and 'gangstas' like the person below makes it sound. For the most part, we're a student body of dedicated, motivated and intellectual kids. We have a faculty of dedicated, caring and consummate professionals. Sure we have people who don't care, who don't try, and who are disadvantaged, but that's not nearly the majority. Most of us are in AP or IB, and working to get in the best colleges we can. As a senior, I'm honored to be in an environment surrounded by people so dedicated to their education. And I'm glad I choose to go to such an open, accepting school.
I'm a junior at this school, and i think its an amazing place to spend my four years, ive been here since my freshmen yearm and i believe that even though we are considered the "lousy" one of the 3 littleton high schools, we are extremely close as one. Every school has drug issues, and fights, and all the negative things we are an IB WORLD SCHOOL . diversity is extremely important to us at LHS we dont judge kids because there not white --- cough Arapahoe cough Heritage cough.. our school is one amazing place.. some teachers are mean, and really tough .. but most are really caring and will actually remember you years after you have them.. it is a great school to be in .. haters can hate LHS LION PRIDEEEEEEEE!!!!!
I couldn't disagree more with the negative review below. I'm in my junior year at LHS and have yet to have any struggles with my teachers. Of the ~22 or so I've had so far, 18 have been absolutely excellent, and the others okay. They've all been ready, willing and eager to help me. They've also all willing to listen to their student's feedback. I don't understand how the reviewer below - a sophomore - could write about IB teachers. IB starts junior year, and the IB teachers teach all IB classes (for the most part), so how they would have any experience with IB Teachers, I don't know. Maybe they had one teacher who taught an IB class as well, but it's impossible that they'd have multiple as a sophomore. And I've heard nothing but good things about my IB Teachers that I have this year. Littleton's community (including staff) are predominately nice, supporting, inclusive and wiling to help. It's a great school, and I don't, for one second, regret choosing LHS. P.S. Students who take honors, AP or IB classes do have a lot of homework. If you don't want a lot, then don't choose those classes. And if you're up until 2am, start your homework earlier and not at 11 o'clock at night.
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.
