Locust Fork High School, although small, is a loving and thriving community that has always made me feel at home. I am in my senior year at Locust Fork High School and they are the only school in Blount County that offers AP courses! The teachers that teach these courses do an amazing job and have helped many students pass the AP exam earning students college credit, including myself! In my opinion, it is the best school in Blount County Alabama for sports and academics.

At locust fork we have advanced placement courses such as AP lit and Lang, AP US history and government, AP biology as well as AP chemistry. These classes have helped me tremendously and the teachers are the best! All the teachers have been amazing and recommend a lot of study materials to be used to study and pass the AP exam.
There’s a lot of good things about Locust Fork. One of those things that I appreciate the most is how the teachers help you and push you to be your best. When I step into a classroom those teachers try their best to teach us at their best performance. On the other hand, Locust Fork does not have a lot of funding which makes learning in a new century very difficult. I would enjoy my time there more if we had opportunities for a more diverse choice of academics.
