Lyman is rated by US News & World reports in the top 2% of most challenging schools in the U.S. It's rated the best in Central Florida. There are 32 sports available for students and the marching band is rated in the top ten in the state of Florida. Students go on to top universities such as Duke, Columbia, and MIT. Lyman is a safe and friendly school. The prestigious Institute of Engineering is housed in Lyman and freshman take college engineering classes. Seminole County families are very fortunate to have a school like Lyman.

The dean of discipline doesn't do a good job of listening to students about their concerns with teachers, peers, and policies. The way he handles situations is like a first grader. The drama teacher is highly obnoxious and has favorites. She uses excuses to yell at students. This school needs major changes.

Lyman High School is now an "A" school thanks to the hard work and passion of the students, teachers, and faculty. This school is highly underestimated and seems to have a bad reputation, but is actually a very good school that is beginning to show its high academic and athletic standards.

School seems to struggle with a tight budget, but they seem to make it work. Recently transferred here from a school in a different state, and I can tell you that this school is very laid back compared to northern schools.

New principal is making kids hate school. And these are the good kids. The trouble makers should have been weeded out long ago. Now everyone gets to suffer for prior lack of discipline. If you are late to class more than once you have to go to "Wednesday school", missing other classes. If you are late again, you have to miss DAYS of classes! Makes no sense to miss SEVERAL CLASSES because you were late to ONE. That's just stupid. I agree that it is important to show up to class every day, but prison rules are extreme. Only 5 parent notes (excused absenses) are allowed per SEMESTER. So if your child is sick, you need to decide whether they are sick enough to keep home. This of course means that there will be tons of sick kids spreading germs back and forth, instead of just staying home for a day or two. And these new prison policies will make the borderline students who are always 1 or 2 bad grades away from dropping out run for the hills. This will affect the graduation rate and drive the school grade down rapidly. By the way, my child is in mainly AP classes and has to be there every day anyway, and only misses 1-2 days a year. And now hates Lyman. Way to go.

poor leadership, low parental involvement, no consequences for discipline infractions, students liken the school to a prison and teachers walk on egg shells because of administrators who have little to no experience in the classroom.
