Overall I would rate Locust Grove High School a 4/5 stars. The school culture there is outstanding and students never fail to attend sporting events rocking their blue and white! Students and faculty members alike are respectful, courteous, and willing to do whatever it takes to succeed inside and outside of the classroom. My teachers in particular my senior year of 2018-2019 were phenomenal and the college prep they fought me stick with me to this day and have prepared me to go forward to the University of West Georgia, not only eager and ready but enthusiastic, knowing that my schoop helped me prepare for this moment. I graduated this year in 2019 and during my 4 years at LGHS I made memories that will last a lifetime! Once a wildcat always a wildcat.

Locust Grove High School has great teachers that really care about the students! The sports and coaches are amazing and go above and beyond for the students! The administration is great and the overall school spirit is amazing! I will miss everything about the school. The facilities all around the school are always maintained and clean. The parent involvement is outstanding! The food was alright and they have different choices to choose from. The elective teachers are awesome and will help prepare you for the next chapter. The school rules and regulations are fair. If at anytime you are struggling there is always someone willing to help you. The school colors are great and the spirit wear is decent.
My years at Locust Grove High School we’re very great! Many teachers here value student potential and their ability to succeed. Also, there are many opportunities to grow and find your true interests here at LGHS.
