I am a student of LHS, and very proud to be a student. I am very pleased of my school. We are a huge family. Even though we may not have the best coaches, we still support every athletic team. It should not matter if we win or lose. I have learned so much from all my teachers. Without being in an advanced class they still challenge us every single day. LHS might have a few fights, but you can not say that any other school has not had a fight. The point I'm trying to make is that, many students talk about how great it is at other schools. So they leave, and after a month there they complain how horrible their new school is. Every school will have its problems. But you have to deal with them. I love my school and everyone in it. Once a Raider always Raider!

As a student of Lumberton High school I have to say I am rather disappointed. I was new in February and I hardly learned anything while I was there. Some of the teachers are lazy and let the kids play on their phones instead of do actual work.

As a professional HR Manager let me help by setting the record correctly. My son was told by a teacher that, "he had to deal with it" after asking if he could leave a few mins before class ending so he could find his bus home. Not a big deal if you have been a student attended for years. However, we just moved to Lumberton, tx a few days ago. My son missed the bus. We have seen a lot of schools due to my job relocation, this is far the worst school I have ever since. Students have lockers but not allowed to use them and fights are common. Send your child to private school if you can.

The school has its problems, like anywhere else. But as a public school in this area, it is above average. I had a daughter graduate, and one still attending, and I have few complaints. The best thing going for the school is the principal, John Valastro. The man works his tail off.

I have two kids in the High School. I think the teachers are doing a wonderful job. The education level the kids from lumberton will have when they graduate is excellant. They even offer degrees in some area to get the kids on a head start. So when they graduate they will also have a degree and can go straight to work.

Response to Oct 2008 post. Hopefully you did not graduate from LHS. Reread your paragraph. '...higher teacher...' should be '...hire teachers...' and '...supports there teachers...' should be '...supports their teachers...' You are quite critical considering your own limited intelligence. The fact that teachers will take the lower salary speaks well of the district. We would rather teach here for less pay knowing we have a quality environment and supportive administration. If, as you claim, the coaches 'are only there for a paycheck' wouldn't they be working for a higher paying district? Your comments make no sense.

I have had one student graduate from LHS and two are currently at LHS. We have lived here for 10 years and I have never been happy with the school district. If I could have afforded private school I would have transferred each of them without a doubt. The biggest problem is the fact that they higher teacher that will take the lowest income of any school district in the surrounding area; therefore, you get what you pay for. We finally have a good football coach, but the coaches for other athletic activities are only there for a paycheck. Very disappointing and dissatisfying. I do volunteer and do what I can but the administration supports there teachers no matter what is done. There is never consequences for bad behavior of the teacher. These teachers can do and say anything....from supporting sexual preference to political bias being enforced in the classroom.

As a former student of Lumberton, I can say that is a good school. Take into consideration the vast amount of growth that they have had. People are moving TO Lumberton not away from it. They not only offer a safe environment but the schools also offer a variety of classes and activities. Although they may not have the education level that a private school may have, it still offers an excellent academic program.

I am sure, because of past experience, that only the football players and cheerleaders are known to the faculty and all other students are just a number that needs to pass the qualification exams in order for the school to be rated 'above' other area schools. not my idea of quality education.

We thought it was a great school until we transferred (after 2 yrs)to a private high school in Beaumont and found out the 'advanced classes' our child had been excelling at in Lumberton were on level with their 'basic' curriculum. Our 'honors' child quickly found herself in need of tudoring.LISD is perceived superior mainly because the 2 largest school districts in the surrounding area(BISD & PAISD) have largely sub-performing students. Rather than comparing LISD to the worst districts investigate how they stack up against the better schools.

The school is growing bigger each day. It is doing its best to keep up with its growing demands. Teachers and coaches do their best, but I feel they hire young inexperienced coaches because of lower wages. The lunch program is also doing a good job to comply with government policies and health related safety issues. Instead of parents complaining, maybe it would help if they volunteered at one of the schools. I'm sure they could always use extra help.

Lumberton High School can claim to be technically above average but that is about all. It is a totally unimaginative school district. It probably has more money to spend that most school districts but you can bet they are not spending it on being creative. And someone should investigate their lunches - especially in intermediate school A cold corn dog and an apple are standard fare. Lumberton offers what is necessary to get by. I know...'I have three highly intelligent and terribly bored children in this school district!'
