My son is very happy at this school. He has good grades and I haven't heard a bad thing about it yet. This is school of choice for us and it's a good one. My other three kids will be going here too.

It's my third year of high school.I 'm very happy with the education i have received. I have had all of the opportunities available to me to be successful. I have had some of the best teachers, ever. There are a few bad ones, of course, but you're going to see that everywhere. The principals are very strict. They don't like to take chances.They deal with kids appropriately. I'm a student (very weak), and i feel completely safe in the school. Additionally, the academic programs are of high rigor. I am enrolled in three AP Classes this year, and have been successful in everyone of them. I'm taking five next year. I already know my teachers and i know they're going to do the best to help me out and help me be the most successful i can be by challenging me. The opportunity to succeed is at this school!

I just graduated LCHS this year and loved it. The education is excellent and the teachers are great teachers and they spend a large amount of their extra time trying to help students learn and pass their classes. The school is always clean, there are many sports and clubs to choose from, and we have a great student leadership program to help freshmen called Links Crew. However, school spirit is amongst the lowest I have ever seen. The faculty began a new discipline regime this year that is strict but not antagonistic and very effective! Attendance is high, drugs, cigarettes and violence are not tolerated. Cliques are lower than a normal high school but still exist, of course. I recomend this school for high achieving students, parents with a disciplinary challenged child, and everyone in between!

I am a student a LCHS and I absolutely love being there. The school is always kept clean. It is also a great environment to be taught in. The teachers are great and the classes are awesome. We have classes from regular level, college preperation classes and advanced placement classes. The administration does an excellent job when it comes to security and the safety of the students. Also, LCHS has very good extracurricular activities. Discipline may seem tough at first, sweeps primarily, but they want to maintain order of the school and have people in class on time.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME 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 state standard.

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 MME 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.
