Lawrenceville high school has dedicated teachers and staff wanting to assist the students of this great school. A Lack of parental involvement seems to be apparent.

Students lack the direction of parental involvement within the community. Technology is improving throughout the school. Many opportunities for students to take advanced courses, and dual credit courses, as well as vocational.

This school is not as up-to-date with their technology as other schools are, nor do they offer as rich an academic experience.

this school is excellent it focuses on both sports and education, the classes are challenging, and there are many different levels of classes. The teachers treat you all equally and spend as much time is needed to help you understand your homework. The students treat everyone equal and nice. The only way you could possibly not get the right amount of education out this place is if you wern't motivated to try or something. I love it here.

That school is nothing but a joke. The classes aren't challenging. I am currently attending a private four year university and have been struggling to keep up with the school work. I don't know nearly the amount that other students know. This is not due to my lack of motivation it's due to my lack of education before college. The school district also allowed me to graduate high school a semester early.

Not the greatest school in the world... seem to focus more on sports than academics, although neither are particularly up to par.

this school was the most fun i could have had at a school. its an allaround great place to be it is unlike anyother the school the teavchers are somewhat strict at times but the students are incredable. i wouldnt want to be anywhere else. the atmosphere is great and the spirit is un belivable. i went there two years ago and now my sister goes there and we are both from large cities oringanlay(denver) it is undiscribable the envirment is small but seams like a family. in stead of dreding school in the morning i looked forward to it. i do not even know what words to use ot desccribe the love i have forLHS it truly is one of a kind. everthing abou it. the outside look might not be so appealing, but from the inside it is the greatest high school experiance you could ever have! GO THERE!!!!!!!!!!NDNs

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
