I love this school. When Mr.Smitherman came in last year it made things better. It is awesome. I would never think about going to another school. Many people in my grade complain about the school because they don't have anything else to do. We also have very strong community support. Many people have amazing pride in the school. The student section is always awesome. The band makes it even better.
Worst school ever.They have the most unprofessional staff.It is like having children in -charge of the school.They are not people you can count on to be on top of things, and I don't know about anyone else,but when it comes to my kids,I want the job done right.You want get that from Locust Fork.DON,T SEND YOUR KIDS TO THAT SCHOOL.

I have attented Locust Fork for almost 13 years now. I hate to be rude, but most people who are unhappy with our school will be unhappy anywhere, because they just like to complain. The teachers I have met throughout the years have made a lasting impression on my life, and have not only gave me a sufficent education, but have helped me in any way they can outside of the classroom. This school is full of loving and caring individuals who won't nothing more than for us to succed. I am beyond proud of my community and my school; Locust Fork will forever hold a special place in my heart. People tend to be very judgemental and harsh on our school, but I can honestly say there is no other school that I would want my child to attend. I plan to reside here, and hopefully teach at Locust Fork Elementary one day soon. I feel that my teachers have given me a great education, just as well as those of other schools from different states. Any parent who has something bad to say about their childs education probably does not see the way their child attends in class. I would suggest Locust Fork High School to anyone who loves living in a small, tight knit town. I love LFHS! (:
I have to "re-teach" my child a lot of material that is taught to him at school. I give my child most of the home work that he has because he comes home on most days without any. If you have a full time job and don't have the spare time to be a second teacher to your child, then please, do not send them here. Yes, there are a lot of well-meaning folks in the community; but niceness does not an education make. Sorry......
I am a senior at Locust Fork and have been there since my 4th grade year. I feel we have a wonderful school, in a good environment. Yes, it is true that we may be some-what behind other schools, but all in all we do learn plenty. And as for Mr. Hughes being the only person who cares for us students, that is most definately not true. We have amazing teachers who care for us and treat us as their own. In fact, during my Sophmore year I had continuously had C's as well as D's, a new teacher named Ms. Matson took her planning period to tutor me, as well as other students. Since that year I have become a straight A student, and I owe it all to her. She isn't the only one either, our principals are incredible and so are all of the faculty at Locust Fork!
I am a parent of three childreen one that currently attends the high school and two that are in the elementary. My opinion is that it is a great school and a wonderful community to be a part of. My children take great pride in their school. What some parents don't realize is the opportunity is there for all students. It is your job as a parent to help your child acheive to his or her full potential. I have never had an issue that was not resolved in a timely proffessional manner. I think the school has improved over the last 5 years and the assistant principle does a great job with disipline and keeping control of the school. I am very proud that my children are a part of this school and look forward to the remaining years to come!
In response to this parent's review of Locust Fork, I would like to disagree with how LF is 2 years below Tennessee. LF is a great school with good teachers. The state board of education and the Blount County Board of Eductaion don't adequately fund LF.
Well i am astudent at locust fork high school and im a senior i wont say who i am. Yes it is true that the standards are a bit lower but not much. Ive been to other schools like well i wont say that will give me away but, lets just say it was another 1 in alabama and it was the same in the other state we were at the same place in every subject. The problem does not lie with the teachers they are all great except for lowery the problem is with the students./
