My son just started his freshman year at LHS. He was very worried about starting high school, but so far the teachers have helped him when needed and he hasn't complained about bullying or any of that nonsense. I think the biggest criticism I have is the lack of air conditioning. They either need to have A/C put in or start hosing down some of these kids with deoderant, because it gets pretty ripe in there during warm weather.

I just started going here for 10th grade this year, and I have to say, the education system is horrendous. They rush too fast and teach 10th graders college level subjects and expect you to be perfect. They also want everyone to be athletic, or else they treat you like your nothing. I have to admit, I am not enjoying it here and wish to return back to homeschooling. One positive thing is Ive made a lot of great friends but honestly Lancaster is a joke. It's just another Groveport Madison.

Lancaster city schools have provided my child with a very good education thus far. My daughter is in honor classes in lancaster high school currently.. The high school is a very old building which is over crowed. The girls basketball program is a joke. The head coach has ran off several very good players because of her attitude and how she acts like the girls owe her something. The girls basketball team have several very talented players, but the coaching staff is very inexperienced to say the least. We are looking for a new school due to how the coaches treat the girls. This is a division 1 school with a very sad record for the girls basketball team. They really need to look for a new head varsity coach.

Lancaster School district has been getting worse and worse every year since my family moved to this city in 1971. my son who went there his freshman and sophmore year came home every day complaining about the mean students, the low class of the school, the horrid teachers and he always talked about how he saw a fight at least 3 times a week. He hated Lancaster because he felt as if he was just another number, and he wasn't important or special in anyways. Lancaster High School itsself is a very out dated building, that was built nearly 50 years ago in 1963. lancaster is a terrible school district and i wish i could go back 18 years and send them to a small, comforable caring school district like Bloom-Carroll.

Lancaster high school is not what it used to be. The teachers do not go above and beyond to assist students. Many fights. The administration needs to take a more active role in being visible in the cafe and halls. Teachers need to be in halls during class changes as well. Extra-curriculars are great, but more kids need to be involved. Athletic director very caring.
