Lugoff-Elgin High School is committed to providing students to are willing to learn an opportunity to not only finish high school, but to give those who have the determination/workrate a chance to obtain a higher education. The teachers are always quick to help anybody who does not grasp a particular subject through free tutoring which is available after school, Monday through Thursday. For our safety, we have deputies stationed throughout the school to make sure the students feel comfortable in a learning environment, as well as to answer any questions that a student may have. Also, if a student is having a hard time in school from an emotional standpoint, there is always somebody present in the student counseling office.

As a 2019 graduate of LE, I can honestly say that I miss this place. Most of the teachers I had were really great and cared a lot about their students. However, I would like to see improvement in the overall atmosphere surrounding the school; we need more demon spirit!
My four years at Lugoff-Elgin High School was great. It was fulfilled with joy and heartbreak. I was very involved with my high school. I played baritone for the marching band for three years. I also ran track and field during my junior and senior years. The school offered so many opportunities for the students to get involved. They wanted students to be involved with clubs and activities around campus. The teachers around the school were amazing. They really do care about how the students perform academically. The administration was superb as well. During my senior year, I had a chance to work in the front office as an aid to the workers in there. It really opened my eyes to see how the school was ran in terms of organization and how the teachers got their information. It helped me mature a little bit more as a young adult.
