My experience was very good, I felt I learned a lot and made friends along the way. Learning time management and experiences great teachers were two highlights. I have gone to Licking Heights my whole schooling career and am a child of a teacher in the district. Go Hornets!

Licking Heights is a decent school district rich with diversity, sports and school spirit. However, besides that, there’s not that much to offer. It’s in a cornfield with no real places to go within a 5-6 mile radius. This is good because that means that nobody can walk off campus. However, this can become a safety hazard if something were to happen or if a student were to be stuck on campus with nowhere to go. The academics are alright but unless you take honors or AP courses, you probably won’t get challenged and will be constantly learning the same thing over and over again. Most of teachers here are extremely nice, caring and understanding but tend to show favoritism towards the athletes/popular kids. The sports are nice but at times there’s too much focus on them. I never really noticed much parent involvement but there must be some.
Being a senior at Licking Heights High School has been pivotal in my not only my growth as a student but also as a young person making strides in self-amelioration. This past year I have been blessed with the opportunity to attend a college at The Ohio State University at Newark as a full-time student with no student debts or worries thanks to Heights. Junior year I had absolutely no idea that I would get the chance to attend and complete 24 total credit hours of college before even receiving my diploma. This is all owed not to myself but to the great school district, and even better faculty that helped me grow into the person that I am today.
