This school can do things only if they communicated better and get the parents involved by letting us know things. Stop limiting our kids to what they can do
This school is clearly in the dark ages. They do not communicate very well, they are still stuck on sending generic letters via US Post and using a Phone tree to call and leave automated messages on your answering machine when your out. Email is not utilized to communicate with parents and it is difficult to get a live person on the phone. The teachers and staff I have dealt with do not appear to be helpful or concerned about the parents or students needs. They seem to only take direction from the student hand book. I have had issues with two teachers not returning my calls but I'm expected to drop everything to run to the schools beck and call when they need something. Also, I have never been notified about programs or events in a timely manner and have yet to be contacted about opportunities or summer programs that would assist my child with advancing in his future education. I would send my child to a private school if I had the option.
As a student of LCHS I think that the school is o.kay. I cant understand why people try to blame the whole school on the fact that their child or children they know aren't doing good.The school cant help the fact that people are going to drop out maybe those as parents should look less to teachers to educate and try to do a little their self. The school does not have alot of violence what school does not have a fight from time to time. The school has alot of programs for students to join. LCHS CLASS OF 2010
I am enrolled currently there and there are good things and bad things about the school. The problems lie mostly with the students who, for the most part, share a lack of concern for their education. There are many good teachers, but they are limited due to the lack of funding that the school has.
I recently attended Lake City High School and I believe that it is a very good school. The teachers are great and help you when they can. Mr. Yarabourgh has been great and he really shows when he is proud of his students. He lets them know and thats makes us feel like we are appreciated. The activities are great and really show the talents of many of Lake City's students. I truly believe that Lake City is a great school and should not be put down. It should not be held against the school, faculty, or other students for the couple of students who choose not to do their part in making Lake City high better. ~Jessica Cooper (junior)~
The students appear to focus on everything but thier education. It appears that the teachers are trying to be their buddy and less of an educator. The leaders beginning from the superintendent to the school's pricipal appear to be unconcern and less supportive of the lack of education the students are receiving. The drop out rate is very high and it appears the superintendent really doesn't care and does not have a plan to control the dropout rates and the lack of school spirit. The school is lacking because the district is lacking. They don't have a leader that supports Lake City in any way. Parents are involving themselve in their child(ren's)education more than ever; but they need guidance themselves and more positive energy.
I'm enrolled at Lake City High. I think this school is great they are very strict and have a lot of great teachers. The school is very safe and has improved academically a lot this last couple of years.
Lake City High School certainly has the potentional to be a good school, but there is a lot to be done. I think that the school's lack of funds puts the most strain on everything else. There are some good teachers out there however, Mrs. Wanda Fulmore, Mrs. Jessica Spurell, and Ms. Kay Sellers just to name a few.
I think this is a great school. My child is in the marching band at this school and since he met Mr.Ainsworth he inproved a whole lot. I will also like to thank his teachers for all of there support. This is a great school and a great experience for me and my child. Special thanks to Mr.Ainsworth.
Unsure of my child's safety. Very violent children. Lock out rules are crazy, too many kids missing important class time because of it. It appears that the leaders are scared of the followers. They need a back bone. Excellent acadamics. I do like the the extra activities that keeps my child involved in something they enjoy and is a part of their future as an adult.
My son has been given a second chance to get an education, he has a learning disability and I thought that he was not going to get out the ninth grade last year, but with the help of the florence co. exceptional children dept, Mrs. Lisa Levaga and Ms.Renee Madden, my son would not have been given the second chance he so well deserved.
