    I graduated from LOLHS two years ago. If I had attended any other school that would not have happened. I messed up BAD my ninth grade year and spent the next three years doing online and after school courses to catch up. All of my teachers and my guidance counselor really helped me. Sad thing is I know quite a few of the best teachers there recently retired. There are flaws in any school but I think it is most definitely the best public school in Pasco.

    The principal is a dictator not a Leader. No sense into appealing student punishments. Parent - principal conferences are not worth it.

    Amazing teachers who really want to help students succeed. I would highly recommend this school to anyone else!

    I have went to both sunlake and land o lakes Land o is a much better school. I have actually learned my 11th grade year. I went to sunlake for 2 years and hardly learned a thing. There are some good teacher like ms. Williams history teacher was one of my best teachers. I highly Recoomend land o lakes over sunlake. Land o also has an ffa team and a better environment.

    Despite my son having a bad teacher here he also had very good teachers. He was not IB or even AP but was accepted at FSU (first year). He is now a junior 3rd year student with close to a 3.9 GPA in Biology. He doesn't study much. I don't know what makes a student become an academic. I think intelligence is a factor. You can't always blame the teachers or the school.

    Known to be one of the best schools in Pasco County. Dynasty type of sports program. Pretty good teachers. Some small room for improvement but overall it's a good school!

    I'm sure every teacher does their very best. This school has a great staff great leadership great sports program. I'm sure everyone tries to do their very best for the students. But I am not happy with this school or the teachers.

    The staff isn't helpful. The kids at this school are not nice to new comers.It is so overcrowded that not much learning is going on.

  • (7 years ago)

    Our son graduated from this school and he wasn't prepared for college at all. The main reason this school is an 'A' school is because the IB program is in this school. The regular students are treated badly but the IB kids get all the good teachers.

    LOLHS is overcrowded. The teachers were average at least but they don't communicate at all. The staff is somewhat helpful but they'd rather avoid soving problems than trying to help you.

  • (7 years ago)

    This school is extremely overcrowded and is still growing. On several occasions when I have visited the school I have seen loitering students and students 'hanging around' in the parking lots during class time. Based on my experience as a parent there are too many students and not enough personnel to control them.

  • (8 years ago)

    Outstanding educational opportunities. Superior drama music art and athletic programs. Experienced qualified caring teachers. A full spectrum of challenging courses for all interest areas.

  • (9 years ago)

    School is overcrowded and there are no plans to build another High School in the area at this time.

  • (11 years ago)

    My daughter was placed in the school's drop out prevention program in her 10th grade year. Not only did she graduate high school she is now attending Pasco/Hernando Community College. This program's counselor was the key to her success. For this reason I consider this school a strong asset to the community. LOL High knows it's student body - their needs and their ambitions. From Drop Out Prevention to the International Baccalaurate Program students are enrolled in the curriculms that encourages them to achieve.

    They are a very smart school and the kids that go to LOLHS are very kind and a great group of nice kids.
