I am a student at Lennard High right now. A senior for the class of 2015 to be exact. This was the only high school I attended and I enjoyed it overall. Some of the rules are pretty ridiculous like the no passes during class but, there is a reason to their madness! And for that...I encourage it. I feel comfortable in this school. Nothing bad has really happened here. Most of the teachers are great. There are a handful of clubs to join. The drama department is cool! Our football team is getting better! I am proud to call myself a longhorn. And something we need to improve with is our school spirit. That's pretty much the only thing I don't like about the school body.

This school is better than I though it would be. However, we have the same issue, the students can only use the bathroom between classes. The bathrooms are all locked during class time. If you get three tardies you get detention. I don't understand this. If this is such a problem then they need to have bathrooms in the classroom. My child has classes that are not close to each other and has to hold it until the bell rings Teachers will not allow the students to go to the bathroom during class. This is quite ridiculous and it definitely needs to be addressed.

Lennard High School is a very good school. But there's an issue,students cannot use the restroom during class. They can only use it between classes ,which is 6 minutes in between each class. And restrooms get real packed and students have to wait in line. My son has gotten a couple tardies,and had to do after school detention. I don't think this is right to prohibit students to use the restroom. Because when u got to go ,u got to go. They can get a UTI for holding it to long. I also e-mailed da school board about this issue and they haven't done anything about this matter. Because my son has to do after school detention once again. Just for using da restroom and being late to class. It's not fair!!!!

My third child will be graduating soon from Lennard, and all in all we have been very happy with the school. The Dual Enrollment program is allowing my daughter to graduate college in 3 years, saving us a lot of money and allowing her to start her career a year sooner. Those FREE credit hours from dual enrollment were accepted out of state as well. Mr Johnson is an awesome counselor and has help us many times. If you don't take advantage of all the school offers or you are not involved in trying to make it better, you have no right to complain.

My son is a 9th grader at Lennard. We are zoned for East Bay but selected Lennard because it is smaller and seems to have fewer problems with violence. My son swims on the swim team and is doing exceptionally well. We are 100% confident that we made the right decision!

I attend LHS and I'm going into the 11th grade, I don't really think the APs do a good job, seeing as from experience they went with what one side said because the person brought in a parent. Not to mention, you're not supposed to know who gives them information, I guess so you can't harm the person, but they questioned their witness with the door open so I could hear everything they said, they walked her right past me so I knew who said talked to them. If I was one of those bad kids, they could of put that girl in jeopardy by doing that. I'd say some of the teachers are good, and I'd give the school an 8.5 just because of the great friends I made. Their lunch sucks! It's a very cheap school all the activities they plan look cheap -____- Thank gosh I'll be leaving it soon, and I can wash my hands with the drama.

I love this school. I have 2 kids there. They are both in Honors and AP classes. I think if you child works hard they can get in the good classes and away from the kids that just don't care. My children's teachers are very caring. They are available when ever I need to speak to them. You have to be your child's' advocate. If anything is wrong get them help if needed there are some great programs at Lennard.

i am a 9th grader and i think this school is terrible already because of everything there. the teachers do not teach you anything really because they are on their cell phones or on the internent. the students want to fight you for no reason. there are also alot of racial comments . the lunch room line is horrible and there are never any room to sit at a lunch room table in the cafeteria. and kids do innapropiate things everywhere . as a student here , i do not approve this school.

My daughter just started 9th grade at Lennard. The teachers have been wonderful in helping her to find her way. She has always been Honor and Gifted so I was careful when I looked for a High School, but I know I made the right choice. She is happy and doing great!!

I am a student at Lennard high and I think it is a great school. The football team wasn't that great but the school just opened three years ago, and we will get better. The softball, track and cross country team are amazing. This school has a great atmosphere and everyone is very friendly. More importantly the teachers will do anything to help you succeed in your classes. The new principal is making a big effort to fullfill the big shoes our last pricipal left behind. Overall it is a great school! -Alexis

I graduated Lennard last year. Class of 2008. And i agree with the post of Oct. 5. I had attended 5 other high schools, and overall Lennard was the best. The teachers were amazing and the staff great too. It really irritates me when people do trash talk the school because it really isnt a bad school. It is the type of school that i will want my kids to attend if i ever have any, and i hope that my younger sister and brother will be able to attend there too. As far as only being a 'D' school, it is still new and for it only being open for 3 years, it is excellent. in fact the state shouldnt have even graded us the first year to begin with.

I disagree, I feel as if you exaggerated a LOT, and blew things out of porportion. Fights don't happen everyday, just occasinolly, and it is clear that the student's safety is a big priority to the staff. Also, I too, am a junior and have attended Lennard both 9th and 10th grade and from my prior expereiences your statement, ' teachers would rather play on the internet than actually teach,' shows how oblivious you really are. Every teacher I've ever had always offers some kind of help after school or durring their confrence period, and it is very clear that a majority of the teachers care about their students and helping them succseed. There is plenty of teacher- parent envolvement, such as confrence night, confrence periods,emails,home phone calls, weekly progress reports, ect. I guess if your defanition of , 'trasy education' is honnors, AP classes, and soon to be duel enrollment, then your ideal school must be superior. Yes, were an 'F' school, and are currently a 'D' school, but we are gradually progressing, and you also have to take into consideration that we are a fairly new school, and it is almost normal for a new school to start out at a lower point then a school who's been around for 20 yrs, and has taken the FCAT numerous times. Lennard IS a great school, and I personly like the school, the devotion of the staff, and the enthusasium of the kids. My only complaint would be the crowed lunch lines... but all in all Lennard is an excellent scholl to attend!

Terrible, terrible school. Fights almost everyday, teachers would rather play on the internet than actually teach, no parent-teacher involvement whatsoever, etc. I am a junior now, and since this school opened my freshman year, the past 2 years have been nothing but trashy education. Last year, we had a racially charged fight and the assistant principal ended up getting hurt while trying to break it up. I would not go to this school, if there were any other decent schools in the area. Last year we recieved an 'F' rating on our school report card, this year we have a 'D' but that is not much better. The day I leave Lennard will be the best day of my life.

So far, so good. I have 2 kids attending Lennard HS, 9th and 10th grade. They are both doing great academically and are involved in football and cheer. Other than one complaint my daughter had with a foreign language teacher not being very aggressive with her teaching, the teachers are great. I think the diversity in this school is great for all that attend. The guidance counselors have been great, informative, and very helpful. The new HCC campus next door will make it very convenient for dual enrollment.

My son just started in the 9th grade at Lennard HS. I think is a great school so far; moving into a new state, I was a little apprehensive but it turned out all my fears were un call for. The teachers are excellent, they are very responsive, I think my son will have a great time there and for the rest of his school years.
