22 Parent Reviews for Lake Highlands High School

The positive reviews are from people who attended a long time ago. I doubt if it is similar now to what it was then. Teachers don't care and don't stay too long. Everyone passes their classes then fails on the state tests, or quits school. I can't see how this school prepares a person for college ...  Read more

This school is a complete joke. They teachers don't teach and they clearly only provide for the male sport teams, their wranglers, and the cheerleader; which none of these organizations are even close to award winning.

Lake Highlands High School offers a diverse student body with highly committed parents and perhaps one of the highest rates of 'legacy' students (who attend the same school as at least one of their parents did).

It's a great school in a great neighborhood filled with great kids!

Living in Lake Highlands, we chose to send our child to public as opposed to private because of the great RISD system. We have never regretted our decision. Our son attended RISD in LHHS for all of his education. He achieved National Merit status and top 10% at this school. He took advantage of everything ...  Read more
