I am the parent of an incoming freshman at this school. I also have teens at another Spokane high school as well as at a Spokane Valley high school. Hands down, this school is leaps and bounds ahead of the other local high schools attended by my other kids. I feel a real sense of dedication and enthusiasm by the staff. School counselors return my emails with rapid speed and were more than willing and able to assist us even during their busy times . The vice principal even stepped in and offered to assist us with some registration issues in lieu of the school counselors during summer vacation. My child is taking an almost all pre-AP/ AP schedule and was provided all the info and more that he needs to be prepared for the upcoming year. Also to counteract a rigorous academic schedule, my teen is participating in cross country this Fall. The boys team is a class act and extremely well organized with a great sense of support and camaraderie amongst the guys, coaches, and the parents I've met. The sports programs my other teens enrolled in at their schools were sophomoric by comparison and their interest and enthusiasm quickly subsided.

From the reviews we bought a house in the LC boundaries when we moved to Spokane. I have one son that has done poorly and one that has done well (both in AP and honors classes). The teachers are hit or miss, the math department is poor, major sports pathetic, cross country fantastic. The new principal should make a difference in the coming years.

Fantastic school! High standards with great teachers! All of my children attended top-rated colleges after taking AP courses At LC.

Overall, the school is fine - you get a good education, the staff is more-or-less friendly and helpful, and you'll walk out being aptly prepared to attend your first year of college. However, honors classes here are no more challenging than regular classes, they merely cram in more information in the smallest allowable time, then take a standardized test on the information. AP and Honors courses are more or less given inflated reputations. Students involved in sports, as well, are given priority and are allowed to do poorly, whilst receiving more help than others. In general, it's a good school but puts too much emphasis on AP and Honors courses, that quite honestly are no harder than regular classes (in fact I think you LEARN a whole lot less - you're only taught to remember), and those who attend the over-hyped sports programs - football, soccer, tennis, baseball, basketball - are given priority and special privileges where they shouldn't be. Kind of a shame for a school with good teachers, too.

I have a 10th grade daughter who goes here and like the school very much. It is urban and the kids will be prepared to go on to college in large cities if they desire. The support from teachers and staff is outstanding.

My child graduated from LC in 2005 after attending during her junior and senior years. With her excellent education and AP scores earned while attending school at LC she was able to graduate from college in three years.

Lewis and Clark is the only high school i'd take my kids to in the country. The Athletics and Academics combination is what makes it such a great place

This school is the most friendly place that i have ever been and i think that any student is given a chance there and they will be treated as nicely as possible. i also think that they could use a little bit more money to help with all of the students.

Excellent School in all aspects of the word. The teachers care about their students success, and don't simply teach for tests. Students come out of the school and are able to go onto college with a high level of knowledge in both the academic world and the real world. Students moving onto college find they are leaps and bounds ahead of their peers in academics. The extracurricular activities are easy to get to and often involve parents as well as students, and it is simple to begin an extracurricular if the student wants to. Supurb school in all aspects.

My daughter is a senior this year. She transferred to LC as a freshman from a private school. Although there were the typical groupings of students, they were all very welcoming until my daughter found the group that best fit her. I attribute this friendliness to the staff. They work hard to promote respect. I don't even need to speak much to the acedemic quality of the school. It is exceptional.

I am also a former Tiger. I have one son who graduated in 1999 and one who will graduate in 2005. L.C. is an excellent school with quality educators, wonderful parents and exceptional kids. Our experience has only been positive.

I am a former LC student and my experience there was wonderful. Their AP program is exceptional, and all the teachers are extremely well qualified for their positions. I felt welcome at LC from the day I stepped through the doors, and I know everyone else could say the same. I would never take back my wonderful academic and social experience that I could have only received as an LC tiger!


Posted August 19, 2003

I am a former student at LC. It's a wonderful high school. My last semester I need 8.25 cedit to graduate and I did by the help from all the staff iand they never gave up on me. when I gave up they were right there to help me. I can never pay them back for what they did for me.
