Licking Valley Local School District Reviews

I've always loved my school and the people here. I've been going to this school since kindergarten and I'm very close with my classmates. The climate is very positive, especially during this time of year since it's football season. Additionally, I've had amazing teachers that I'm pretty devastated to leave behind. I am currently taking AP Physics which is a very hard course and I often dread sitting through it at 8:30 am, but I really love my teacher. He's very energetic and kind. He knows to slow down when we don't understand the content. I feel that my teachers have prepared me enough for college. We actually have a scheduled class for those students wanting to go to college where we peer-edit scholarship applications and essays, we apply to colleges, and we go on college visits. It's very helpful.

Licking Valley High School does a numerous amount of things to prepare you for college or the future. For example, in your freshman year, you are required to take the class entitled "Freshman Foundations." Freshman Foundations is a class where you learn how to shake another person's hand to exploring majors and colleges. It is a very basic class yet one of the most beneficial classes I've taken. You learn the little things that can go a long way. You learn how to shake another person's hand for when you get a job interview, you learn how to tie a tie if you do not already know-how, you learn how to write a proper email for when you are an adult, you learn the difference between different types of colleges like private and public, etc.
I have attended Licking Valley Local Schools since kindergarten. One of the things I have always loved about Licking Valley is the strong community. We are a big family, the love and support is unreal. The one thing I believe is the greatest thing about this school is the willingness to help others. Also our traditions we continued for all the years I attended. As well as the huge love for football. Overall, it is a well-rounded school with great staff and students.
