Both my daughter and son have attended LCHS and they have received excellent educations. Extracurricular activities are in abundance with the opportunity of participation open to anyone willing to work. All in all, LCHS is an excellent school with superb teachers. One most outstanding is Mike Wilkins, the band instructor. He genuinely cares for the kids and it is obvious. Go Jackets!!

I am now homeschooled but while I was attending lee senior I thought it was a really good school. I think that most of the teachers are really welcoming and warm. I believe that sometimes disapline can be harsh in some areas but mostly it's top notch.

I attended Lee County High School and had no problems. Most of the teachers were great. There was a different pricipal for every year I was there, but I dont think that made a difference. I think the kids that attend Lee Coutny High should consider themselves lucky. But I'm sure now that there is a new high school things will get competitive.

The previous remark about this school was an absolute lie. I've just graduated and I'm happy because I was worried about my safety in this environment. As far as principal quality goes, we had a new principal for each one of my years in this school and I still don't know if they've found a respectable principal.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
