Great small town school to raise and educate your children in a safe environment and a close community. There are limited choices in classes, but the school does offer advanced and dual credit (Palo Alto) core classes. The staff doesn't always seem to know what's going on and there's some politicking at the board level, but the teachers know what they are doing, are likeable, and best of all, respond to calls/emails. Like any other school, children do best when there is parental involvement. My daughter loved being in the band, and the director is well known (one of the best) in the BMA area.

Lytle High School is a great school. It's in a small community, which is very caring about the youth & athletics. The academic programs are wonderful. They are very strong in UIL competitions, in particular Speech, Spelling, Debate & Drama. I have a particular fondness for the Math, Chemistry, English, Journalism, and Spanish teachers at Lytle High. They were all very encouraging and helpful to my child while she attended Lytle High. They have a strong band & football is attended with passion. I feel they could & should have stronger art programs. I feel they lack in this area however, the US is getting more & more away from art. Save the Arts! Parents are very involved with most of the kids activities here at Lytle High. Since, it is a small community they have a hand in what goes on. The PTA is active. Go Pirates!
