    "I like most of my teachers and staff. Most of the staff really seem to care about the students. I really like the cheer coach and team. I do not like the uniform policy."

    "Lake Wales Senior high school provide an absolutely incredible experience for my four years. It opened me up to so many different opportunities both in the community and on a larger scale. After graduating in the year 2017 I felt completely prepared for college life. The high school really works to make sure you re ready for the real world after you graduate."

    "Contrary to general orchestration of high school education, Lake Wales High features a retake system that enables students to fix their grades, as to ensure they satisfy preferentially admission offices. Overall, this system is the creation of our benevolent principal. She fervently pushes the extent of her mental faculties to make certain that each student optimizes their mind, as within a scholastic setting. On many occasions, I hear from teachers that champion her efforts, which typically comprises of her aiding impoverished students by financially supporting them. However, there remains a principal issue. The school acknowledges the FCA, a Christ-Oriented Club, while failing to acknowledge an atheist club of equal prominence. In essence, this absence permits one religious faith to predominate over secular thought, rather than allowing equality to prevail amid the student body."

    "My experience at Lake Wales High School was great. Throughout all my 4 years of going there, I've had the opportunity to work with some of the best staff and teachers out there. These teachers actually do care about you and work hard behind the scenes, where sometimes they don't get the credit they deserve. For them, its more than just passing you on to the next grade or having you graduate. They want to set you up for the long run and have you on a nice track for the "adult world". In addition, our principal, Donna Dunson, implemented a unique system that not all regular high school students get to experience. The system is called H2H, which is basically an hour block lunch period. During this time, students can eat lunch at their convenience and use the rest of the time to see a teacher. This allowed me to do make-up work, ask for help, or just homework in general. It was a really beneficial system that's unique to our high school."
