    Excellent school. Very good Teachers who really care! Sports teams are mostly good and they offer a lot of activities!

    great school that really helps everyone and the academics offered at this school are ones that no others have this school beat most schools in SJ

    My son just graduated in 2010. The academics were good; but the school administration needs to work of inclusion of all minorities so they don't feel "left out".

    Good school but the teachers (especially the administration) needs to focus more on education the children and stay off Facebook. Numerous times in my child's tenure there teachers have referred to Facebok postings. I feel sorry for those teachers and administrators who sit at home evenings perusing Facebook in attempts to 'catch' the kids. Perhaps now that the budget has been voted down and they have to cut headcount they'll have less time and teachers to do this. Pitiful when grown adults behave this way and 'sell' it as they care.

    I love Lenape because the staff is great. I also love Lenape because its in the middle of getting redone and so far it looks amazing. Everyone is so friendly when youre walking through the halls. Last school year we also won Boys Basketball State Championships 2nd year Girls Soccer State Championships and our Marching Band won a state title also. We have a ton a school spirit which makes everything so much fun

    Lenape High School is such an outstanding school. I actually ENJOY being at school when most kids from other schools may not have the same opinion. Lenape and its incredible staff have helped me learn so much just from my first year there. The sports teams and academic teams are excellent and some even national champions. Lenape is a great learning environment and I wish that every student out there could have a school like it.

    Lenape High School hires a wonderful faculty. All of the teachers care about the students. They recognize that high school is not about learning but it is also about growing. Teachers are there to help students even after the class period ends. Lenape has a wonderful secretarial staff as well. Mary Jane is one of the most kind-hearted person you could ever meet or have the pleasure of knowing. She will know every students name by the end of their four years.

    Many different clubs and great teachers plus an awesome marching band.

    Lenape is a great school for me as a student with a great academic record as well as a range of academic and athletic oppurtunities for me to explore.

  • (6 years ago)

    Admin. only concern is sports. They have no rapport with student body. Moral is low. One dominate group of kids runs the show and admin. allows them to do so. The majority of students go unnoticed. Atmosphere is not inviting or encouraging.

  • (8 years ago)

    guidance counselors really vary from one to another they need to be more personalized to the child's needs. academics are good but again need more attention to what each child requires.

  • (8 years ago)

    Was a very difficult experience for my son because he is special needs. The school could not identify with my son and therefore he was not treated well.

  • (9 years ago)

    The music and art programs are very good. My daughter participated in Girls Ensemble and was very please with these programs. There does seem to be too much emphasis on sports. Lenape is ahead of the curve on wellness programs.

  • (9 years ago)

    Outstanding academic programs; many extracurricular activites; average parent involvement.

  • (10 years ago)

    Not a great experience for my child would look for other options if I had to. My child has ADD and they did not take very good care of him.

  • (10 years ago)

    My daugther attended Lenape High School in 2001 and I had to take her out of the school due to problems with Teachers not understanding her ADHD I would not reccommend Lenape High School to anyone that has a child with Special Needs.

  • (10 years ago)

    Lenape High School provided my two children with an excellent education. The school is particularly strong in Math and Science. There are outstanding teachers that challenge students and provide them with college level education. Smaller classes in the more advanced levels also allowed strong personal relationships to develop among the students.
