Whoever wrote the good review about this school must not see between the lines. If you do not belong to the in croud, most of the teachers do not pay attention to you. What does this say to the kids of the future. As far as the comment about the drugs. I know for a fact that drug deals happen on that campus everyday. And no one sees it or they choose not to see it. Wake up. Why do we have so many kids that choose to go to other schools if Lake Dallas has such a good school District?

Lake Dallas is a great school. Many advanced courses are available, and the teachers are very excellent. If your child is involved in drugs, that is his or her own fault, not the school's. The school encourages students to be drug free, with red-ribbon week and other weeks dedicated to staying away from illegal drug practice. The school offers many extracurricular classes as well. With student IDs and good campus security, the school focuses on student safety 100%. As for only carring about sports, this is false. The Lake Dallas football team isn't very good at all... but the number of students graduating with scholarships and a great education is.

I agree with the other reviews. Basically, dont attend lake dallas! home schooling is a thought for those who live in the area!

Posted February 20, 2004

Lake Dallas High School has had too many problems to be a great or even good school. There are drug and alcohol problems that people refuse to take note of. The administration, especially the principal, doesn't listen to what the students or parents have to say about any issues regarding the curriculum. These students are the future of our world, their education and well-being are too valuable to mess with. However, they don't seem to notice that or care. They have also had problems with certain teachers that they've hired. And instead of admitting to their mistakes, they sweep it under the rug. They also seem to have a nasty habbit of putting more emphasis on sports than education. They would rather have awards for their football talent than their genius.
