Very high amount of drugs!!!! My daughter stayed here for 1 semester until we switched. Basketball practice every morning at 5:30 cause there is no other gym time. Also with cross country its not after school. They want the kids to come home for 45 minutes than have to go back up to the school to be there between 5:30 and 7:00. That's stupid. Also no textbooks because the school doesn't have enough money for them. (Their words not mine) good luck with getting homework help you have no book to take home and if you take the boss you have no other time to talk to teachers because they only stay for a little bit after school. Now I drive my kids to smyer where all these issues plus more are resolved.

LHS is a great school. I have had two children go through this school. Faculty and staff are great and work well with all students. This is a very safe campus and I am impressed with the safety precautions and practices that have been implemented by the administration. A positive learning environment and great start for life.

This is my son's first year at this school. This school is so much better than Levelland Jr High that we are very pleased. I have had two more go through this campus. Each has had different individual results. Each has excelled in different subjects and activities. I feel anyone can excel in whatever they like the most, in most any high school, especially one of this size.

My son has been going to this High school for 2 1/2 years. I don't feel my child is very safe at this school. Also, the teachers are not very concerned if the kids learn or not. When my child has asked for help they tell him to go set down, that he should know that by now.
