    Very negative attitudes towards people who are different from the "social norm". My daughter was in the Hamilton High Marching Band and attended an away game two years ago there and her band was booed off the field and the students threw water bottles at the band. Not respectful at all.

    I started attending Lakota in Kindergarten. I left in my freshman year due to personal reasons and went to school up north. I chose to come back to East; I had always heard it was such a great school. I hadn't heard that it's only great if you fit into a specific mold. Most of the kids haven't experienced much making their views on things seem very shallow. There are many academically 'gifted' kids there but that isn't all that a person needs to succeed in life. The administration is very incompetent to say the least. No one knows who is supposed to do what sending you around in circles trying to accomplish things. The teachers themselves are pretty cool. I like most of them; they all have different personalities. ) I will do whatever it takes to not return to East after this year. I know I'm only wanted for my scores.

    Lakota East still teaches relavent subjects that get the students ready for college or a number of trades.

    East was a fantastic school and it does have clocks digital clocks in fact everywhere. Yes it is cold but that is the same with every school I've been to usually the heat isn't controlled in that building so nobody in the building can change that. If you are looking for a place with great academics and extracurriculars for everybody East is for you.

    My school doesn't have clocks. Why would i want to attend a school that doesn't teach me time management? No one understands that you need to budget your time while taking tests or else you won't finish and it's impossible to do that without a clock. I would use my cellphone but those are banned as well but that is understandable. Also no one seems to know how to turn on the heat here. I freeze my butt of everyday. Some may say that keeping the school cold would keep the students awake but i know from experience that it makes it impossible to concentrate on anything but how cold you are. No one comes to school anymore because we have no incentive like our exam exemptions. I just think that clocks and heat should be a given in any high school but hey thats just one students opinion.

    As a former educator with 35 years experience in 5 different districts I would rate Lakota East at the very top in regards to the staff and their desire to work with the students to insure they receive a great education. In fact most go over and above to help struggling students (as well as those who are more academically gifted).

    Lakota East was awesome man! The place came with everything! It even had an electronic owl that kept those pesky birds from coming in! Top of the line place man. What's up Jeremy.

    East is a great school. They were the best four years of my life! Mr.Duff is a great teacher. People like Justin won't like lakota because they don't put up with things such as yelling curse words at teachers and threatining other students with death. They kick people like that out of their main schools and move them to smaller places that will help them make it threw high school and helping them fix their life. It is a not a place full of snobby people. For the most part everyone may not get along with everyone but there is always people like you that you will fit in with. That is how the real world works. East is great!

    Lakota is a great school if you are driving a new car wear fancy expensive clothes and are snobby. However if you cannot afford such clothing and cars be prepared for ridicule! mr. Duff is one of the best teachers lehs has and i wish i could take him to college with me since he knew how to make any topic interesting.

    If you are looking to send your child to a great school for academics athletics and a safe environment come to LEHS. Great teachers and a tough curriculum make this school one of the best in the area.

    Lakota is a good place if your child is into sports and has great academic and social skills. The school it's self though is homophobic and even a GSA hasn't made much of a difference.
