I sent two kids through this school and regret every day of it. My kids did very well but the exposure to drugs, sex, smoking and harrassment by the hispanic groups was ridiculous. My last son is now going to private school at a healthy cost and I'm still stuck paying the LISD taxes to the tune of about $3k per year. What a waste of taxpayer money. I don't know what to say about the teachers because they have to deal with the bad students also. I think it has to do with the population of Lewisville where the quality of life is going down and crime rate is going up. The parents don't seem to care what their kids are doing or how they dress.
We moved to Texas from Ohio and my daughter is not happy at this school. It seems that the school is so big that they don't care about the ordinary students who are not seniors or honor roll students. I am happy about the elementary school my younger children are enrolled in but we will move out this district before they are old enough for this school.
It's a great school. My daughter loves it there. The teachers truly care about the students and their success.
As of Monday night, both of my students have gradulated from LHS. The school and it's staff are always there for the students and parents. With pride I can say that both of my kids will always remain Fighting Farmers!
My daughter received a very good education that resulted in a fabulous scholarship to a top ten university. She not only gained academic skills but received mentoring than translated into positive leadership skills that are serving her well now in the university setting. We appreciate all the time and effort she received from her teachers.
I feel that Lewisville High School is a great school for academics and extra-curricular activities. The race and economic diversity is a great preparation tool for the real world for our young people.
This is school is way to strict with their clothes code! There are so little things kids cant do in that school with out it been gang related. I understand why they put some of them but they are taking over the top because they don't even ask the person to take of change their clothes they just put them in pass!
Although Lewisville has changed over the past years it is just like any other school. You Learn. Lewisville has a great learning enviroment and has many ways you can get involved with the school. Either if your a student or even a PTA mom. Lewisville is right for just about any kid. It has a mixture of races which makes it a better school. The teachers are amazing!
Lewisville High is a great learning atmosphere for the youth of the city. I would reccommend LHS to any parent the is considering placing or moving their children to the district. My children have benefited greatly from the attention and caring teachers at Lewisville High School.
LHS has a long standing tradition of providing quality graduates. LISD offers many career eduaction oportunities for their students to better prepare them to be viable citizens and family members.
There is an expansive amount of extracurricular activities. Plenty of school spirt and support of programs. They have National Honor Socity, NJROTC, band, spanish club, mulitple state champship football team, softball, cross country, golf, great staff.
I feel that both my daughters have recieved not only the education they need to continue on to college but the leadership skills as well. There are so many opportunities at LHS. The diversity of races and economic levels is such an asset. Both girls had teachers that really cared about them. I can't think of a better place to send your children.
My son was in the middle of his senior year, planning to go to college for an Ag degree, and had all his classes planned for the year. About 3 days before semester break, they 'discovered' that the computer class he had taken in 9th grade did not qualify for his computer credit. The same class with no changes, however, did qualify for credit if taken after the 96-97 school year. In order to graduate with his class, he had to drop all his Ag classes and take a qualifying computer class. With no prior computer knowledge except the class he had in 9th grade, he was put in a Webmastering class learning how to create web pages for half of each day with computer students who were practically a part of their computers. The principal and counselor were sorry, but there was nothing they could do--the state wouldn't let them grandfather credit for the students who had taken the class prior to 1997. It took 3 years for them to discover their error, but my son is the one who paid for their mistake.
I feel my kids have gotten a great education at Lewisville High School. My oldest daughter is in college now and has been very well prepared for it. Any problems we've had, has been acknowledged and quickly addressed. The Principal is always willing to listen to the parents and try to resolve any issues. Many of the teachers are inspiring and help the kids get the education they need. The school has a great mixture of races and economic levels that teach my kids how to be part of a larger community. I think with any school, you get out of it what you put into it and I think Lewisville High School has done a great job in teaching it's students to work hard and be successful.
