The teachers at Lehman have been so great to my exchange student. The only problems we are CONSTANTLY running into is the attendance office. They are not the smartest of the bunch in that office I have come to notice. No matter if you call to report your students sick and not attending or send in a note regarding a doctors appointment these people will ALWAYS have it wrong and that they are not at school!! I have never been more irritated by a school and have it to be nothing to do with the teachers. I wish I could get her into a school that's better than Lehman.

I went to Leham ever since 8th grade and the scool has been amazing ever since they open their doors to anybody. the classes are intersting and the school is open to everything. The activites are anough to fill anybody's day and the teacher interact with the students and become their friend more than a teacher so that people feel safe. They have a great program for the mothers and their children as well as anything else you want to do. Thsi is a amazing school!!!

A well-run school, for the most part, though typical fears of parental lawsuits sometimes trumps common sense. Worse, fear of reprisal stifles risk-taking. That said, the primarily middle-class student body is loaded with wonderful students, the faculty is personable, helpful and accomplished, and the administration supportive. I've workled at several schools. Overall, this is the best, by far. Now, if we can just ger rid of TAKS...

Lehman is very unique in many ways. After having attended a long-established school with a more 'typical' high school setting, I really appreciated what Lehman has to offer. The teachers are energetic, supportive, and eager to go out of their way to help students. The faculty is so helpful, especially the principal. She is extremely visible (MUCH unlike my other school experiences) and is very open to considering student thoughts (a student once suggested that a bike rack was needed in the back of the school, and she ordered one right away). The student body is vastly more accepting than any other high school I've encountered. I also felt very safe at this school. Fights were a rarity, unlike other nearby high schools. Sports are progressing very well, and the arts are outstanding!

Lehman is an awesome school to go to...all students have a lot of school spirit and even the new freshman feel pretty welcome here...LHS is a very cool school!

Life is good at Lehman, that is if you keep ignoring the really bad stuff. The principal thinks that if she doesnt acknowledge what is going on then it really isnt happeninig. Most of the faculty are really great and interested in the kids, then you have the rest of them, who still act like kids themselves.

the teachers here actually CARE about the students attending a high school! that is one thing every one notices above everything else! sports may not be great but they are definately improving! although many students complain about rules, etc. they are neccesary and are what makes this school so structured. overall this school has improved over the years i have attended (8th grade-12th grade).

My Daughter Attends Lehman High and has been since her Sophomore yr. She is a Senior and will be graduating this yr. The School is fairly new and I think Faculty/Staff are doing a tremendous job with the Students. I have always received immediate response from Staff and feel that the School is academically acceptable. In her Freshman Yr that she attended Jack C. Hays High School,it was not about learning, but more about the sportsmanship. I am glad that Lehman opened up the doors for the Students who really want to learn.

The school is definitely run very well and has great leadership behind it, but it lacks common sense on the part of administration. With TAKS not really anything they can take responsibility for it is a sense of misrepresentation on thier part. The teachers are young and attentive, but biased. The school is very safe and is has a comfortable environment, but with any school these days, not one is truly 100% safe, but Lehman really excels in the field of safety. The school is a school to send your children, but only if you intend to stay fully involved with their studies and class organization. The counselors need to be delt with only with the parents, common sense lacking there.
