Locust Valley Central School District Reviews

I liked that there were opportunities for me to take college courses while in high school. There were also many different types of courses to choose from. I played sports throughout high school, and liked the coaches as well. My guidance counselor was always available to help me with anything I needed, and played a big part in choosing Texas Christian University as my college. My brother is also in the school district, and needs some extra help in certain areas. I am grateful that the district has given him the resources he needs in order to not struggle and get through school with as much as ease as possible. The majority of the teachers have been wonderful, and teach the material in a way that is easy to understand. All in all, in June, I am going to be a happy graduate of Locusts Valley High School.

My experience at Locust Valley Central School District is one I could only say good things about. I have never felt more at home than walking through the halls of these schools. Looking back, I would proudly say my experience is very different from many of those I know at different schools. The teachers are more than caring, their objective is to have you meet your full potential. While life seemed pretty easy at LVCSD, we learned to our full potentials and were constantly being positively challenged by everyone around us. There is a special sense of belonging at LVCSD, a type where everyone is friends with everyone. It is the most amazing feeling seeing classmates and faculty in and out of school and striking up easy conversation. The sports are fun, the food is fine and the resources available thanks to community parents and the administration is superb.
The Locust Valley Central School District was a great school system for the years that I attended. From kindergarten to fifth grade, I was given second to none schooling by educated, enthusiastic teachers. All of my teachers were attentive and caring in every way. Although I no longer attend any of the Locust Valley Central School District schools, the district does provide me the textbooks and workbooks that are needed for my school. The district is very organized and has rarely made a mistake on anything. Overall, Locust Valley Central School District has done a great service to my family over the past 14 years.
