Poor. This school has some gem teachers, but the administrators are completely out of touch. If I had to choose one word to describe this school, it would be ‘pretentious’. Certain people are more equal than others. The extracurricular programs are managed incompetently and the numbers on equity are indeed concerning. My child has attended LC for 3 years and it has only gotten worse.

I am the parent of an incoming freshman at this school. I also have teens at another Spokane high school as well as at a Spokane Valley high school. Hands down, this school is leaps and bounds ahead of the other local high schools attended by my other kids. I feel a real sense of dedication and enthusiasm by the staff. School counselors return my emails with rapid speed and were more than willing and able to assist us even during their busy times . The vice principal even stepped in and offered to assist us with some registration issues in lieu of the school counselors during summer vacation. My child is taking an almost all pre-AP/ AP schedule and was provided all the info and more that he needs to be prepared for the upcoming year. Also to counteract a rigorous academic schedule, my teen is participating in cross country this Fall. The boys team is a class act and extremely well organized with a great sense of support and camaraderie amongst the guys, coaches, and the parents I've met. The sports programs my other teens enrolled in at their schools were sophomoric by comparison and their interest and enthusiasm quickly subsided.

From the reviews we bought a house in the LC boundaries when we moved to Spokane. I have one son that has done poorly and one that has done well (both in AP and honors classes). The teachers are hit or miss, the math department is poor, major sports pathetic, cross country fantastic. The new principal should make a difference in the coming years.

Fantastic school! High standards with great teachers! All of my children attended top-rated colleges after taking AP courses At LC.

Overall, the school is fine - you get a good education, the staff is more-or-less friendly and helpful, and you'll walk out being aptly prepared to attend your first year of college. However, honors classes here are no more challenging than regular classes, they merely cram in more information in the smallest allowable time, then take a standardized test on the information. AP and Honors courses are more or less given inflated reputations. Students involved in sports, as well, are given priority and are allowed to do poorly, whilst receiving more help than others. In general, it's a good school but puts too much emphasis on AP and Honors courses, that quite honestly are no harder than regular classes (in fact I think you LEARN a whole lot less - you're only taught to remember), and those who attend the over-hyped sports programs - football, soccer, tennis, baseball, basketball - are given priority and special privileges where they shouldn't be. Kind of a shame for a school with good teachers, too.
