I have been a parent at LHS for 5 years and putting my 3rd child through LHS right now. It is a wonderful school. It offers my kids great academics as well as athletics. I have kids playing sports, participating in clubs and excelling in academics. Go Knights!

Lahser High is a great school! My son was having a difficult time adjusting from his prior school (Novi High) and the faculty helped assist in his comfort level. They offered him opportunities academically and socially that provided him a well-rounded environment and opportunity. Not only did the counselor meet with my son, but the principal. My son was not just a new number in Lahser, he was a part of the family and the objective for all students that attend Lahser High. Go Lahser High! Keep up the good work! Great Points about Laher High: - Academically Challenging - Diverse - Promotes Leadership - Offers great opportunities that will create successfully young women and men in the future.

Lahser High School is now under the exceptionally competent leadership of a new principal. Under his leadership, tangible goals have been set, methods to achieve them outlined, and steps taken to implement them have begun. All is not perfect at Lahser, but under the leadership of the new principal, I look for it to get there quickly. Honors classes have proven rigorous and highly educational. I feel that my child will be extremely well prepared for college academics anywhere. Math might be a relative weakness, but is not a weakness overall. I do wish for more exciting science curricula. There is more education in this building than any child takes advantage of. If there is a weakness, it is that the complacent student can slide through. A student who goes after an education will not find better. If your student is complacent, the staff will work with you.

I absolutely loved this school. We moved last march and all of us miss it a lot, more than any of would ever think. This school has changed my life and my siblings life in more ways than I can count. From the wonderful staff to the great acedemics. This schools sports, in particular, were deeply loved by my family and I. I played football for them for a season and even wrestled. I havent gotten the same enjoyment from sports anywhere else that I got from LHS. My sister graduated from LHS in 2004 and she deeply loved the school and misses it. I was there for only a year and loved it so much we make regular trips up to visit. This school changed our lives and we love it. GO KNIGHTS.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
