I am a student at Lennard High right now. A senior for the class of 2015 to be exact. This was the only high school I attended and I enjoyed it overall. Some of the rules are pretty ridiculous like the no passes during class but there is a reason to their madness! And for that...I encourage it. I feel comfortable in this school. Nothing bad has really happened here. Most of the teachers are great. There are a handful of clubs to join. The drama department is cool! Our football team is getting better! I am proud to call myself a longhorn. And something we need to improve with is our school spirit. That's pretty much the only thing I don't like about the school body.

This school is better than I though it would be. However we have the same issue the students can only use the bathroom between classes. The bathrooms are all locked during class time. If you get three tardies you get detention. I don't understand this. If this is such a problem then they need to have bathrooms in the classroom. My child has classes that are not close to each other and has to hold it until the bell rings Teachers will not allow the students to go to the bathroom during class. This is quite ridiculous and it definitely needs to be addressed.
Lennard High School is a very good school. But there's an issue students cannot use the restroom during class. They can only use it between classes which is 6 minutes in between each class. And restrooms get real packed and students have to wait in line. My son has gotten a couple tardies and had to do after school detention. I don't think this is right to prohibit students to use the restroom. Because when u got to go u got to go. They can get a UTI for holding it to long. I also e-mailed da school board about this issue and they haven't done anything about this matter. Because my son has to do after school detention once again. Just for using da restroom and being late to class. It's not fair!!!!
My third child will be graduating soon from Lennard and all in all we have been very happy with the school. The Dual Enrollment program is allowing my daughter to graduate college in 3 years saving us a lot of money and allowing her to start her career a year sooner. Those FREE credit hours from dual enrollment were accepted out of state as well. Mr Johnson is an awesome counselor and has help us many times. If you don't take advantage of all the school offers or you are not involved in trying to make it better you have no right to complain.
Lennard High School is great my daughter learn a lot. And she has fun too.
My son is a 9th grader at Lennard. We are zoned for East Bay but selected Lennard because it is smaller and seems to have fewer problems with violence. My son swims on the swim team and is doing exceptionally well. We are 100% confident that we made the right decision!
I am a senior at LHS. I have had an amazing high school career. I must say that I WOULD NOT CHOOSE ANY OTHER SCHOOL IN THE NATION. Lennard High School is HOME.
this school is awful the teacher are not teaching well and the lunch sucks the buses are crowded this school is the worst i have ever been to in history
I attend LHS and I'm going into the 11th grade I don't really think the APs do a good job seeing as from experience they went with what one side said because the person brought in a parent. Not to mention you're not supposed to know who gives them information I guess so you can't harm the person but they questioned their witness with the door open so I could hear everything they said they walked her right past me so I knew who said talked to them. If I was one of those bad kids they could of put that girl in jeopardy by doing that. I'd say some of the teachers are good and I'd give the school an 8.5 just because of the great friends I made. Their lunch sucks! It's a very cheap school all the activities they plan look cheap -____- Thank gosh I'll be leaving it soon and I can wash my hands with the drama.
I love this school. I have 2 kids there. They are both in Honors and AP classes. I think if you child works hard they can get in the good classes and away from the kids that just don't care. My children's teachers are very caring. They are available when ever I need to speak to them. You have to be your child's' advocate. If anything is wrong get them help if needed there are some great programs at Lennard.
i am a 9th grader and i think this school is terrible already because of everything there. the teachers do not teach you anything really because they are on their cell phones or on the internent. the students want to fight you for no reason. there are also alot of racial comments . the lunch room line is horrible and there are never any room to sit at a lunch room table in the cafeteria. and kids do innapropiate things everywhere . as a student here i do not approve this school.
I think Lennard is a great school it has great potential it just need a lot of Sponsor and more parent involvement like any new school.
This is an exellent school my child goes here and loves it
My daughter just started 9th grade at Lennard. The teachers have been wonderful in helping her to find her way. She has always been Honor and Gifted so I was careful when I looked for a High School but I know I made the right choice. She is happy and doing great!!
This school is filled with different ethics a nd races but is always somehow able to cooperate together to make a great enviorment for the students here at lennard High School. Go Longhorns !!!
I am a student at Lennard high and I think it is a great school. The football team wasn't that great but the school just opened three years ago and we will get better. The softball track and cross country team are amazing. This school has a great atmosphere and everyone is very friendly. More importantly the teachers will do anything to help you succeed in your classes. The new principal is making a big effort to fullfill the big shoes our last pricipal left behind. Overall it is a great school! -Alexis
The Gratest School ever!!!!!!!!! Best 9th gade teachers mr.shertz mrs.manzella ms.wullfert mrs.marshell mr.goodrick
lennard is over all a great school. education teachers and students are amazing. there are rarley any fights and the percentage of white people is very high. there athletics program is awesome for being a new school. football isnt doing great but their softball and track teams are amazing as well. i am a senior at lennard high school and i wouldnt change schools for anything. my younger sister is looking forward to attend lennard and i will be dissappointed when i leave.
I graduated Lennard last year. Class of 2008. And i agree with the post of Oct. 5. I had attended 5 other high schools and overall Lennard was the best. The teachers were amazing and the staff great too. It really irritates me when people do trash talk the school because it really isnt a bad school. It is the type of school that i will want my kids to attend if i ever have any and i hope that my younger sister and brother will be able to attend there too. As far as only being a 'D' school it is still new and for it only being open for 3 years it is excellent. in fact the state shouldnt have even graded us the first year to begin with.
I disagree I feel as if you exaggerated a LOT and blew things out of porportion. Fights don't happen everyday just occasinolly and it is clear that the student's safety is a big priority to the staff. Also I too am a junior and have attended Lennard both 9th and 10th grade and from my prior expereiences your statement ' teachers would rather play on the internet than actually teach ' shows how oblivious you really are. Every teacher I've ever had always offers some kind of help after school or durring their confrence period and it is very clear that a majority of the teachers care about their students and helping them succseed. There is plenty of teacher- parent envolvement such as confrence night confrence periods emails home phone calls weekly progress reports ect. I guess if your defanition of 'trasy education' is honnors AP classes and soon to be duel enrollment then your ideal school must be superior. Yes were an 'F' school and are currently a 'D' school but we are gradually progressing and you also have to take into consideration that we are a fairly new school and it is almost normal for a new school to start out at a lower point then a school who's been around for 20 yrs and has taken the FCAT numerous times. Lennard IS a great school and I personly like the school the devotion of the staff and the enthusasium of the kids. My only complaint would be the crowed lunch lines... but all in all Lennard is an excellent scholl to attend!
