My grandson attends SLEHS and he likes it and is thriving there. He likes the teching staff; he's involved in the sports programs; he has a very nice group of friends that have equally healthy interests. And, the school itself, and the property it sits on are beautiful. This is a relatively new school with state of the art equipment. What a great place and environment for a high school student.

I graduated from South Lyon East High School.Don't listen to the angry parents. An exaggerated review when a parent doesn't get their way isn't an honest review. I couldn't possibly write a good enough review for this high school. I am now a Physics student at the University of Michigan and realize just how much SLEHS prepared me for college. The teaching staff at this high school went above and beyond whenever it was needed. I was able to stay after school for extra help with my teachers sometimes until 6 pm if I needed it. The staff was more than willing if it meant helping me learn the material. They were nothing but caring and would do anything to help their students. Help was available to anyone that asked for it. I can't even fathom that people are complaining about the lunches on this website. If you want your kid to eat gourmet food send them somewhere else. If the drug sniffing dog searches every once in a while whilst your child is still in class upsets you, send your child elsewhere. But if you want a safe environment for your child and if you want your kid to get a quality education from teachers that care, then you should send them to SLEHS. I'm glad I graduated there.

Amazing school. Design is great, teachers are awesome, and there are great academic opportunities. Definitely send your child to this school.

Our daughter just graduated from SLEHS this past June, and I am so happy that when taking her placement tests for her new university, she scored extremely well. SLEHS did a spectacular job preparing her for her future. She is going on to study mechanical engineering, and I have to praise SLEHS for making that possible. Their Robotics team helped her to find what she loves, gain her confidence, and bloom into the intelligent young woman she is. SLEHS has a lot more to offer students than most schools. It is one of the top public high schools in the state of Michigan, and their teachers are top notch. I think the best thing to remember when evaluating a school is that an education is what you put into it, and if a student performs poorly at SLEHS, it is not because of the teaching. I wish more parents would be more involved with their child's education, as we noticed how few of the Robotics parents actually participated in their child's activities. The school can only provide so much... It is up to parents to provide additional support and guidance for their children.

My opinion, after sending my freshman to SLEHS for one year, is that this school needs new administration. The assistant principal is unbelievable, and not in a good way. My son is by no means perfect and we ve had our ups and downs over the past few years. This vice principal lady is a nightmare, to say the least. My son made a mistake at lunch and landed in this woman s office. This woman called me and while we were talking proceeded to start arguing with my son while we were on the phone. This was just one issue in a long line of issues with her. I attempted to get assistance with her behavior and how she treated me, by the principal. HAH, now that s a joke. He s as useless as the vice principal. I have since withdrawn my son from the South Lyon School District. I would advise against EVER sending your child to this school. It s unfortunate that they do not allow school of choice at the high school level in South Lyon. I will end with saying that the teaching staff was very helpful, as much as they could be as staff. If you need more than they are able to give you, good luck.

The current principal is perhaps the worst school administrator I have ever experienced. This is very unfortunate because the previous principal was a wonderful man and was a great leader and role model to the students and community. The current principal refused to return emails and messages that pertained to an official school event that my son attended which was an embarrassment to the school district, administration, and students. A good leader and would do the right thing for the school and resign after failing so miserably to perform basic and customary job functions.

The administration is absolutely terrible and fails to comply with any needs of their students. The new principle is the worst principle in human kind he 100%fails to complete duties for his students and neglects his duties as a principle( minding you that his duties are not difficult at all) he just fails to have anything completed in time. Do not send your children here they will be absolutely miserable. Let alone this.year.my daughter has turned from a happy young girl to being completely depressed about her future. as a parent please do the right thing and not send your children here. all of the other reviews are correct and the cough hour is a time wasting hour

my reason is this school doesnt care at all the teachers do but the staff doesn't care when a child needs help and they can not detect it it is sad for this to happens at this school here and when a child has to be home schooled for 2 yrs at home on medical they don't even call to even see how the child is feeling or keep in touch this is sad too here the best principal was Mr Weber he was the best of the best we want him back in south Lyon he always took the right care with at least my son and always was there for him whenever he needed time in any matter he had in school always took care of things there is no other principal like him if Mr Weber was the principal of east what a wonderful school that would be too many kids i hear are having problems over there and it is very sad to hear and alot is not being addressed too from what i hear from the kids! sad but true its a beautiful school yes but there is wrong people running it i feel!

Welcome to South Lyon East Highschool! What a terrible learning environment. Students are incredibly immature, and teachers are unproffessional. Students are searched for drugs without probable cause, the food is terrible, and there are lots of friendly students from Detroit! We should sell some of the plasma TVs and get some administrators and teachers that are not from the bottom of the barrel.

This school for me, has grown since the beginning of the 0'8-0'9 school year, but needs al ot of improvement in extra-curricular activites. Winterfest was poorely populated, because of the lack of adversiment. This school is filled with immaturity, especiall the freshman, and the kids need to learn morality, and self-control. Being a junior, i only have one more year, but i hope this school progresses in years to come.

My daughter attends SLEHS and I have to say that I am impressed with the school. I believe that the staff is more than capable and I do believe that every effort has been made to make the students high school experience the best it can be. I also believe that there are a handful of students that insist on being downers. It is to bad that they dont want to make themselves part of something great instead they complain and whine about what they perceive to be a 'bad' high school experience. There are plenty of students out there that would kill to be in the position the SLEHS students are in. These students are not being forced to go to SLEHS - school of choice - look into it and let the students that do appreciate what they have at SLEHS enjoy their time in high school. Go Cougars!!!

I go to SLEHS and all i have to say about it is I HATE it there. First off there are way too many ridiculous rules. like the 3 tardy rule. Alot of the teachers have no clue what they're doing. The 'Healthy' food choices are ALL they offer & that might sound good but you try eating soggy turkey subs every day for lunch. But the saddest thing about the school, is that the 2010 2011 & 2012 classes dont even get the real high school experience. the schools practically empty and nobody wants to be a 'Country Cougar.' And for parents that want to send their children to a great New school, where all the kids are happy, respectful and kind to eachother- and teachers are wonderful; your not going to find that in any school. teens are teens nomatter where you go. Sorry. :/

This School is amazing! Every thing about this school is well outstanding> The Hallways, bathrooms, classrooms, lunch room, Just every thing is nice! This school also has the lateset and greatest technology! If you ask me this school is much better than the old South Lyon highschool,It is alot more diverse. In a few short years East South Lyon Highschool will be one of the BEST highschools in Michigan! This will be my first year here and i'm soooo excited! If you want your child to have an upstanding education, send them to this school!

I think that our school is amazing. But there are a couple of let downs and the students attitudes are sooooooooooooooooo annoying it bugs the crap outta me. They lack in school spirit and if they think our school is miserable then they should seriously do something about. We are a brand new school, and yeah, it's going to take a lot of time to balance out with the old highschool but we have to form it ourselves to make it what we want it to be. Im on student council and a cheerleader. Im going to do the best i can to make my peers want to go to school hear. It's really not all that bad

This school may look as though this school is all that but being a student here I know that everyone who goes here is miserable. ~Below is a list of things that are bad at SLEH~ ~Everyone treats eachother horribly because the rules arent even enforced. ~ The halls are disgusting just littered with trash. ~ Most of the students disrespect the teachers. ~ Since there is no upper classmen most students are incredibly immature since they have basically no good examples of people who are. ~ At lunch 4 out of 5 days a week pizza is served. Then ontop of all of the money wasted on this school its not even lasting they rushed to make it and now everything is falling apart.

South Lyon East has really nice classrooms, bathrooms, hallways, etc. And the teachers are pretty much all great too... some boring, but what school doesn't have boring teachers? and the grading system is really unfair. we are given checks for hw instead of points which is good for students who dont do their hw, but bad for those who do. and our teams' sportsmanship is really bad. the amount of hw is also very annoying. hw every night and almost every weekend and break... especially in biology and algebra classes. no time off! overall, the foundation of the school is nice, but it has a long way to go before people grow up and decide to become a school instead of a bunch of people pretending not to care.

I rate this school excellent because I attend it and it is absolutely amazing! plasma screen tv's everywhere, new gym, new classrooms, and best of all I will be part of the first FULL graduating class! the teachers and staff and facilities are just absolutely breathtaking. everyone is so nice and I would recommend everyone to stop attending school where they are now and to switch over and become a South Lyon East HighSchool COUGAR! - Jamie
