Louisa County High School Reviews
Louisa County is a very diverse, multi-opinionated school with students of all backgrounds. The teachers and administration cares for all the students and try to prepare students for college. Our extensive list of electives includes cosmetics, automotive technology, art, theater, chorus, band, small animal care, and so much more. The facility itself was just rebuilt so we have the privilege of many different features, such as an automotive workshop, two gyms, an extensive library, a state-of-the-art auditorium/ theater and publication lab, and fully-furnished science labs. Hard-working custodians keep the school clean and maintenance workers keep all appliances and facilities up and running. Teachers here give you a variety of teaching styles, some complex and some fun. Most importantly, the bullying levels are rated at an all-time low and school safety is taken seriously. A student can express their passions and intelligence here a Louisa County High.
My experience with LCHS has been an interesting one so far. I find that the funding isn’t evenly spread throughout the departments. The fine arts departments get barely anything, whereas football gets most of it. We spend all of our money on pep rallies, tee shirts, and technology and software we don’t use. I love my high school, but we also need to get better at keeping up our promises to the students. School officials need to crack down on the bullying and usage of illegal drugs, alcohol, and smoking/vaping underage. Overall, we have some great programs for CTE and a diverse range of student and sponser run clubs and afterschool activities. LCHS has numerous competitive teams, such as football, soccer, field hockey, track, envirothon, e-sports, speech and debate, forensics, and scholastic bowl.
Seven years after the earthquake that condemned the school (which happened during my senior year of high school), Louisa County High School is back on it's feet with a beautiful and large new school building. The teachers and faculty are what made this school fantastic; they care for their students and provide us with many different resources to prepare us for our next steps in life. Recently, all the teachers, including the superintendent, performed a rap for the teachers and students (super funny, find it on youtube!) as a welcome back to school thing!
