Since they are lacking in available courses, by 12th grade you can count on your child to be put into worthless elective classes such as a 2 hour auto shop class, or an extra gym class. While your child could be taking a few elective courses, allowed to leave school early to work at their job to help save up money for college in the fall, sorry to say that at LHS they are stuck there until graduation or they choose to drop out. Better to send your child to Flambeau. At Flambeau H.S. students are allowed to leave at 11:30 am in order to go to work their senior year. This school is marginally smaller than LHS so one could assume that is why they allow their students this option.
The high school is very limited in available courses, especially by the time your child reaches their senior year. Most kids have completed all graduation requirements by the end of the 1st semester in 12th grade. They will not allow students who have jobs who have reached required credits to leave school to go to work until 2:30 pm, school ends @ 3:30 pm. In order for your child to graduate early (in January) you need to apply for this & go in front of the school board for them to decide. Most kids are DENIED this, most likely due to the fact that the district doesn't want to lose the funding that they get for this student. Even if your child turns 18 in the 1st semester & has met all credit requirements, they still won't approve an early graduation or release to go to work early.
Ladysmith High School is awesome. Please review what this school has to offer, not any other high school in the midwest offers what Ladysmith High and the Ladysmith Health Care Academy provides for their students. The classes, programs, and dual course offerings are amazing. As for test results please review the 2009-2010 WKCE. This high school is amazing.
