    LHS has been a great school in which to work with caring teachers administration and staff members. After working at LHS I would have no problem with my children attending this high school. Great strides are being made here and the staff expects the growth of students as learners and citizens.

    As a former student at Lewiston High School I feel that the school prepared me for college through challenging class. Teachers for the majority will help students with anything and everything that they need even if it means they will have to work "off the clock." As for the principals I have no input on how it is in regards to the teachers but with students if you are a trouble maker you'll dislike them and if you aren't you'll never even notice they are there.

    the main problem with this school is the staff. they are very disrespectful. change the staff and principle and the school would improve. also I have noticed that there are teachers that don't really know how to teach which the test scores prove that.

    There is very little input from teachers considered. The administration has a "if you don't like it you can leave" attitude. Some teachers have 60 students while others have 140. The principal has been described by some staff members as a tyrant. Unhappy teachers equals poor results.

    it's an okay school. So many things though all at once (rush rush) the teachers there though are welcoming and help you get ready for college!

  • (7 years ago)

    The school has to many changes happening for next year. The principal needs to slow down.

    As a student of Lewiston High I can say that this school is substandard. Don't send your child to this school.
