Bad lunches an overall bad school. Kids here only know how to get pregnant. An how to bully other kids for what they dont know.

Small town which makes it very difficult for kids to fit in if they were not born in the town. Bullying is a big issue in the school system and some administrators/teachers are quick to look the other way.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

Do no communicate with parents, school teaching standards are subpar. New administration this year, hoping for the best but we moved out of the district and into a district with more opportunities.

The 9th grade teachers at LCHS are amazing. As a parent, I stay involved with my kid's academics. The teachers are really concerned and focused on helping their students achieve and attain their goals necessary for graduating. They are always kind and courteous. Along with them, the staff creates a wonderful learning environment. When you walk through the doors, you get a warm welcoming feeling, that I know is comforting to me, as well as my kids. Thank you LCHS!

This school has gotten a little better over the years, however there are many kids that bully. The teachers nor the administrators ever do anything about it and it should change. Bullying causes a lot of things including depression so being bullied everyday could lead to someone committing suicide. This is a REAL problem that NEEDS to be addressed.

This school rates a zero. My oldest son went to Lanier County High for his freshman year in 2006. Luckily, we were able to move out of the area for the rest of his high school time. Three problems I had with this school: 1. The counselor gave the parents and students a visual demonstration on freshman orientation night describing why the children didn't need to go to college. She described statistics that showed that 70% of them would get jobs that didn't require college degree, and then that of the 30% that attended college, only 10% would ever graduate. 2. The tech prep diploma is not accepted at any college except Valdosta Tech or GA Military College. The diploma isn't worth the paper it's printed on. 3. Expectations for the children are low, and therefore no effort is made to improve the school curriculum.

Lanier Co High has made progress in the last year and has really become a school that parents want to send their kids to due to the hard work or the new administration and team effort! Kudos! Keep up the hard work!

This school uses its size as an excuse not to present a challenging curriculum. If students ask for a harder class we are told that there 'isnt money for it' and dismissed. The teachers constantly complain about being unable to teach because classes are 'integrated' (which basically means that people who should be taking honors and AP classes are thrown in with the general populace as are slower kids who need special help). Rules are not enforced across the board and racial tensions are high. I wish I could say I learned anything academic in high school but all I've gotten out of the last four years is that I need to save to send my children to private school because (so we've been told) all public schools are run as if monkeys in khakis and polo shirts are in charge. That is to say, very very poorly.

Our school is alright but has some issues with actually challenging students. i get so bored in school not because i just don't choose to do anything,but because e don't do anything! i really hope that someone from my school reads this and does something about our curriculum. I go to school to learn and am prepared to do so! some one out there please teach me something!!
