Locust Grove High School is one of the many schools in the Henry County School System. At this school, all the teachers and staff is wonderful. You can ask anyone for help and they will not mind helping you. This school has many different opportunities for students to interact with other students. Locust Grove has many clubs that anyone is able to join and all clubs are welcoming and invite people to join them. Having the experience of going to this school and graduating from it is wonderful. This school has many different classes that are offered from regular classes to honors to AP classes and also does dual enrollment classes that are accepted. The front office staff is great and always is there to help any students out. The counseling office is also a great place for students to ask any questions about high school and/or college. I am happy to say that I am graduating from Locust Grove High School!

Great school, fabulous administrators! Sports are very important as well as academics. Never a dull moment - the faculty and staff always try to have fun and have a positive attitude. Many students dual enroll but they miss out on school spirit events.
As a student at Locust Grove HIgh SChool I have been equipped with many opportunities to excel academically and socially. The administration and staff are friendly and committed to the development and success of each student. In order to create the best education environment for students many academic trails and reforms have been made to test the waters of new systems. Although i understand and appreciate the need, I wish the students had more say in the schedule and style of learning.
