I think Lebanon Highschool fantastic They have great teachers that care about the school and the kids. The principal is very good in his leadership skills. I would tell any parent that this school Is one of the best here in missiouri.

The teachers here are below the adequate level required to teach their respective subjects. However, in rural Southwest Missouri the schools are not known for excelling in academia. There were some teachers - who despite the pressures to abandon academia for other matters (sports, popularity, recreational activities) - who were able to invoke a desire to strive further in education. Knowing the school environment would never be sufficient to propel students into more esteemed universities they spent time with students outside of school to teach extraneously the subjects not sufficiently covered. The people are good people, but their misguided focus leaves much to be desired as an institute for educating students.

They need to service the lower economic class more. They need better trained people than what they have. The concentrate on fancying up the place and not enough on caring for ALL students.

Mr. Kevin G. Lowery is the worst principal in America. He is close-minded, rude to students, self absorbed, and offensive. He has made snide remarks towards foreign exchange students on the morning announcements (which are entirely too long) boasting that our country is "better" than theirs. If he would open his eyes for one day and see what is going on outside of his snug office he would see that not only the students are causing a problem, but also the unfair and discriminatory teachers and administration.

Had some great memories from this school, but they focus way to much on things that don't matter. Rather than trying to be, "The best high school in America.", they need to be focusing on more activities for kids that are not involved in sports or band. Also, the way they present things sometimes seems sarcastic and/or unenthusiastic as if some of the people that are helping with the events don't really seem to want to be there. Another thing is they feel like they need to be rough and tough on kids that "wander the halls", for a senior who has worked their tail off the first three years of high school so they could enjoy an easy senior year, what would you expect? A lot of seniors that worked hard and got most of their credits out of the way freshmen through junior year, deserve a little down time, especially since most of us (college or not) are leading successful, fulfilling lives. Were kids, not learning machines, ease up there guys, remember that everyone has to learn who they are by freedom of expression. What I would like to see from LHS is a little more creative freedom than there has been, and the teachers being slightly more involved rather than picking favorites.

"Lebanon High School Promotes and Emphasizes PBS, Positive Behavior Support. As a Student at Lebanon High School, I am Safe, Responsible, Respectful, and a Learner."... As a student at Lebanon, I don't believe that 3/4 of the students follow any of these rules, let alone all of them. Most of the teenagers walking the halls are fighting, going to class unprepared, telling their teachers that their jobs aren't any more than a full time daycare, and that they cant learn anything new till April when the teachers are cramming information that's going to be on the test in 1 month. And these students aren't learning of that agenda, because its just getting thrown at them in the form of a packet or 12 page study guide. The instructors don't explain the unknown test material, and then wonder why the test grades are so low. "The best High School ever? Not happening!

Best school around! Great teachers and administrators! Safe and friendly atmosphere where everyone is treated fairly. Good sports programs and the best coaches in the state.

I loved this school and i still do. It was big enough to have good programs and small enough where you still knew everyone or close to everyone that you were going to graduate with. This school helped me so much and offered me thousands of choices. I was accepted into the school as an outsider because most had grown up together. I was accepted and I grea very found of all of the teachers I had had in one way or another. There was not a single moment that i can look back on and say that i didn't enjoy to the fullest. I love the people and the teachers. Mr. Lowrey [principal] makes the school day fun and interesting. With the warning music to make sure you get to class on time he has cut back on the number of tardies and had made school fun!

This isn't really that great of a school. As you can see, grammar wasn't tought every well to the former student. The only thing good about Lebanon is the band and choir. Students always roam through the halls during class. Some of the teachers seem to not care about you what so ever. To agree with the teacher, the school and town are very closed minded.

This is a great school most of the time. Although most of the sports are lacking, the arts programs are exceedingly wonderful, particularly the drama department, which is accepted as one of the top in the state (it is led by Mr. Randall K. Sproat.) The band program also boasts one of the most artistic and inviting records around. The academics here are above average, and the principal and staff are exceptional.

I went to school here from 5th grade on and also came back as a teacher here for 3 years. I did not like the school when we moved here because we came from a much better one in Iowa. Besides the lower academic standards, it was hard to be accepted here as an outsider and still is to this day. The school lacks diversity, both in race and thought patterns. Heaven help you if you should choose to think outside the box in this school or town. As a teacher, I found it a better place than when I went there, but most of the same lack of acceptance of outsiders and their thoughts. Lebanon offers many great programs, this is true, particularly the band and choir. Sadly, they are losing the current (awesome) principal at the end of this year, so it will be a different place next year.
