After several attempts to view the curriculum from K-12 communicating directly to the staff, administration, school board and the Department of Education Office in Augusta, one year later a curriculum was provided by the Superintendent for our review. The curriculum provided was incomplete and out dated. After becoming a School Board member 2014 both School Board Policies and Curriculum are now available online. There are 13 School Board members that make up the School Board yet three School Board members and the Superintendent meet each week and discuss business without involving the other members of the School Board and meet without public notice or agenda. The School Board has not followed Policy ADA which requires them to set annual goals in cooperation with the staff, administration and citizens of the community. Setting annual goals per policy ADA have not been complied with for many years. The School Board as a body has publicly stated they are not required to hear public comments or concerns. When suggesting to have goals established and a schedule set to meet those goals and review progress, the School Board refused to adopt this basic practice of success.

Being a Senior at LHS in a few weeks, I strongly feel that there is a bullying problem, some of the teachers do not care, and if I had to say anything good, it would be that the food is WAY BETTER than the food served at Benton Elementary School.

i think the school needs to work on how it uses its money. everytime football season starts thats where all the money goes. and when its other seasons money goes there. the money should go to the teaching not the extra things. in my opinion the school is going to be closed in the next few years at the rate their going. the faculty keeps alot of things "under the rug" when things happen. They push their kids to finish high school and completely rip them off of their education.

As a student at Lawrence I feel there is a big bullying issue. i feel that faculty needs to hunker down on the bullying. many of our students are being bullied and there is nothing being done. All they get is a slap on the wrist and then they are suspended for 10 days and then get to come back and do it again. as far as the teachers, I think they are great. They take alot of time time to teach the students the best they can and push the student to achieve their goals. i think this school is a great school but bullying needs to stop.

Lawrence offers a wide range of co-curricular activities which connect students with the community in both athletic and non-athletic activities. The school has superior technological resources in comparision with other area schools and the level of connection which students feel to the school is much higher than most area high schools. Teachers care about their kids and often go out of the way to work with students beyond the class room.

Like anything, you get out of it what you put into it.... With that said, I am extremely pleased with the education my children are receiving at Lawrence High School. They are being challenged, yet are receiving such great support from all teachers. It has been a wonderful experience for both children. They look forward to going to school each and every day. They feel safe and comfortable. We feel fortunate and proud that Lawrence High School is our alma mater.

The school has great sports level of parent involvement is limited and the teachers do not seem to care about the child if they are in the middle of the road unless they are failing then and only then is the parent notified that there is a problem.
