As an IB student, I feel I am very prepared for college. They IB faculty does an amazing job from a teaching perspective but I feel that the rigor of the program has unfortunately given some teachers a bad reputation. If you are planning on taking IB and are aware of the complexities of the program, this is a great school faculty wise. If you stick with the program, this school overall is fairly good.
I am currently a student and its not a great school. I am also a part of the IB program and it is worth being in. The band is insanely good and is worth going to this school for. But if not don't go.
ParentOverall experienceOur oldest son graduated from the IB program at LHS last year. The IB program felt on par with a basic honors program at most other public schools, so that was very disappointing. Some teachers at school were good, but others went above and beyond to destroy opportunities for kids in everything from sports to academics. After hearing about the students assembling to protest against some of the teachers at the end of the school year, I think it was a good thing. Part of me thinks they went too far by making AP Meyers cry, but she shouldn't have treated those students like that. Then there was the news that LHS was unranked in Newsweek's 2016 list of top high schools in Texas! How a school that has an IB program that's supposedly up to standards but still can't get ranked it beyond understanding. Every sports program at LHS struggles with finishing the season with at least 1 win, but some of the sports seasons end with 0 wins and all losses. The campus looks nice, but that's not enough to persuade me to enroll our other children there.
The football coach shows favoritism toward children whose parents donate more money. The more money your parents have the more you get coddled and babied by the head coach. These football players bully and threaten other children, coach looks away. The athletics department is a joke here. They discriminate against children who aren't as fortunate enough as others.
