During my 12 years at Licking R-VIII School District, I learned so much. In each grade, the teachers prepared us for the next grade. Each and every one of the faculty members were so caring and understanding. They did everything they could do to help each student, no matter what the problem may be. I really enjoyed my experience at Licking R-VIII School District, and I would recommend this school to anyone.

Poor leadership. Sub-par teaching staff. Above average language arts teachers. Considers sports funding more important than new textbooks. Good counseling staff.
I really appreciated all of the hard work the teachers put into your education at Licking and the amount of trust I find myself putting in them. The tree or four years I attended Licking I never was disappointed in my education. The staff are something special, and really care about your future.
