Lew Wallace High School Reviews
Lew Wallace is a good school and I hate that the bad over shines the good. I am proud to call my self a lew wallace hornet! Lew Wallace has great teachers, an excellent athletic program, and very bright students that Ii believe will become something great in life. I am currenty a feshman at lew wallace at the top of my class. Just 2 weeks ago in my health science class, we went to visit purdue unvirsity to see the cadavers there. We were so well behaved, that they asked us to come back! They were also surprised that we knew so much. Anybody who has any thing bad to say about my schol should think again.
I was at the 35th and Grant St McDonalds on 12/1/2010 when a bus load of Lew Wallace students arrived, and because of the medias representation of what Gary students conduct is, panic set in. To my pleasent suprise, the students were well dressed with no sagging pants, neat hair, no load talking and no profanity and all that with teacher outside. That group surely made me proud that day, but it's just sad that well behaved young people are never the focus of the local media, it's just the idiots that get all of the attention.
A very sorry school, that worry about the color of student shoes over education! Every yr they come up with new reasons to suspend kids, instead of new way to keep kids in school! They need 2 be closed!
