It's fairly small school, and you get to know almost everyone! The teachers are usually willing to sit down with you, all you have to do is ask. The grading system is a little odd though. It shows you colors usually for your grade, and they are a 4,3,2,1 grading system, but most of the time you can work out with a teacher pretty easily what your actual grade is.

My daughter attends high school here. There is a good academic curriculum offered. My only concern is too much emphasis is on sports related notarariety. My daughter has won several art awards with no mention from the administration. These include state and national level by scholastic. She even attended Columbus college of arts and design with no recognition going into her sophomore year. As my husband said she did not make the winning point or the game saving play. So if you have an athletic child by all means a great school. Academic child decent school. Elsewise that's all I see going for students.
Licking Valley High School has an amazing staff of caring teachers who are determined to shape the future of their students. The students are also all very connected and kind, forming a small community. My only complaint is that often, sports are more of a concern than academics.
