Lyons High Ranked 15th Best Public High School in Kansas by Niche Site
According to the Niche website, “Best Public High Schools ranks 14,431 high schools based on dozens of key statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents. Lyons High was awarded a top ranking with As in the areas of Academics Grade, Health & Safety Grade and Student Culture & Diversity Grade. A high ranking indicates that the school is an exceptional academic institution with a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experience very highly.” Founded in 2002 by Carnegie Mellon University students, the site reports it has grown into on the largest content startups in the country. By providing reviews and insight from everyday experts, they make choosing a neighborhood, college, or K-12 school a more transparent process. The organization included Academics, Health & Safety, Student Culture & Diversity, Teachers, Resources & Facilities, Survey Responses, Extracurricular & Activities, Sports & Fitness, Graduation rate, State Assessment Results, etc. for ranking consideration.
Cell Phones Not Permitted During Instructional Time
Unlike many high schools, students at Lyons High School are permitted to carry their cell phones during the day.
Use of their cells phones is restricted to certain times so that it does not interfere with the learning environment of the classroom. Students are allowed to use their cell phones before and after school, during their lunch period and between passing periods.
Cell phones are not to be used during the "instructional time" of class, which starts when the bell rings to begin the class period and ends when the bell rings to end the class period
A Reminder For Guests:
Lyons High began using Access Control doors earlier this school year. These doors are an added safety feature which allows us to monitor who is entering the building.
Doors to the high school will be locked at all times, except between 7:30 a.m. and 8:15 a.m., the front doors of the airlock will be unlocked for students to enter the building.
After 8:15 a.m., the front doors will be locked, entrance to the building will be monitored by a camera and intercom system for the Access Control door. After pushing the button, located by the south front door, visitors will be asked to identify themselves and state the reason for their visit before gaining entrance into the building. All guests must register in the office and wear a visitors badge for the duration of their stay.
Check it out! Presentations from the LHS Video Production Class on our LIONS In Lyons Day with a large contribution from Mrs. Folck and her Art students. Great job students!
