Even though most people say that LHS is "bad". They need to get their head out of the clouds because it is my first year here, and I am already enjoying. The teachers are fantastic and the academics are outstanding. Lubbock High is not bad at all in my opinion. It is the best decision I have ever made. I am now able to grow into the person I really am.
The student body at Lubbock High is "rough" at best. If you are raising your child with traditional values, be prepared to have those values challenged. Supervision is inadequate due to the large student body. However, LHS does offer top notch academics. It is the best academic school in the area, although I do not think it measures up to programs in bigger cities. Lubbock as a whole does not offer anything impressive in its schools, but if you need to live here for a job or for some other reason can't leave, LHS is the LISD high school of choice. Just be very aware of with whom your child is spending time. Our family came across several "friends" of questionable character, which can admittedly be found anywhere. However, it is the inner city school in town, it is a title 1 school, and many of the students have less than desirable home lives. Parents beware. There is more to school than AP & IB classes.
Lubbock High School is the best high school in West Texas, turning out well-rounded top notch students all over the country. In my year, both the valedictorian and salutatorian went to Stanford University which was ranked #1 by US News and World Report. Other students to various Ivy league schools and top state public and private schools. My senior year, 10 people made Texas All- State Orchestra, which made us the high school in Texas with the second highest number of students making All-State. The high school in Texas with the most students was Houston School of Performing and Visual Arts, a school dedicated to the arts. If you want your kids to be equipped with the tools to succeed anywhere and be on par with kids from the top high schools around the country, Lubbock High is the place for them to go. It amazes me that not more people take advantage of this superb, free education and would rather shell out money for private school education in town. My word of advice is to save this money for college instead!
Lubbock High is the best Academic high school in Lubbock. This High School offers Pre AP, AP and IB classes. This spring they had 420 students pass the AP exams. That was more than the other three high schools combined!!
I love this school it is the best high school I have gone too. It is so diverse and has really good teachers and AP courses
As a family, we all hated Lubbock. However, Lubbock High School provided our son an excellent education, preparing him extremely well for higher education. He may have had equally good results elsewhere, but to be honest I doubt it. Great AP classes, decent teachers, and good counselors.
We were dissappointed in Lubbock High. The population is so high they are not able to manage the students well. The students have to wait a very long time to talk with counselors who really do not help them in preparing for college. Parents have to guess on how the dual credit works and they do not offer as many dual credit courses some of the other high schools. The diversity is great and they have great electives. The AP classes are good, but, only if your student can learn on their own.
Lubbock High really does offer a truly diverse environment. Different student ethnicities allow students to learn not just about a set curriculum, but also about each others cultures and the world. The Pre-Advanced Placement, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate classes are a challenge to the students who choose to work hard and strive to excel to their maximum potential. The teachers are well trained and have years of teaching experience. They know their subjects and are ready to help students be the best they can be. LHS is renowned for its academic achievements, and its top performance music program and ROTC, as well as the magnet school's athetic program which includes many different sports including dance and gymnatics, allows students to be well rounded and greatly prepared for college. Lubbock High simply sets students up for success.
I find Lubbock High School to be a diverse, well-rounded place of learning. The level of academic achievement is second to none on the South Plains and across Texas. This is a place where children achieve and thrive.
