Education is a hotbed subject these days. I think this school is about average. Could it do better and have better accolades? Sure it could if we were in a county with excess cash like gwinnett. In reality, the school does fairly well, the teachers are good and the classes are ok. They have cut a lot due to funding as have all schools. I wish they had more hope eligible electives and I wish they were more forthcoming on those things with parents, but, I asked and they were more than happy to explain. Are there issues? Yes, as with ANY school out there. I am happy to see them being very consistent with discipline. That is a good thing and keeps the kids in line and respectful which will serve them well later in life.

We moved from out of state and choose this area because of the ease and close proximity to both Atlanta and Athens. The school is rated a 9 and I think that is a fair description and rating. Most of the teachers are helpful and push the kids to learn. I agree with another review in that I wish there were more Hope eligible electives and I wish the school would partner with one of the colleges for dual enrollment online, so that our student could take his college level class while at Loganville with no need to travel to another location. The administration seems to be on top of EVERYTHING at the school so no complaints. I think it is a hidden gem so far as schools go. I also wish the school would do a tad bit better seeking out AP students. I wish there was more advanced classes for the students so that you had a tiered system of regular, advanced and AP. Possibly they could partner with one of the state online systems to expand those classes while adding the technology factor into it automatically. Overall good school and good group of professionals. Good Job Guys!

LHS is an excellent school hands down!! I have two children who have attended the school and we are not from GA so we are sort of outsiders, never any issues with the staff or Principals, everyone is always nice, helpful, understanding and more than willing to assist in any way they can. The teachers really care about the students. The only thing I wish they did was give parents a recorded phone call if a student does not show up for school, I personally have never had any issues with this but the other High School that my children attended did offer this and I though it was a great feature safty feature. Compaired to all the other High Schools in the surrounding areas LHS is the best and I wouldn't send my kids any place else.

It's very hard to believe that LHS has gotten any good reviews. The system this school is run by, (assistance principals and counselors) is extremely poor. My child was bullied at that school over and over again by one student. The assist.princ. was made aware of it by my daughter, my husband and myself on many occassions and did nothing. My daughter ended up with an in school suspension because she complained about this other child. I ended up pulling my daughter out of that school because of the politics of the administration in that school. I rate Loganville High School one of the worse school my child has ever attended due to the lack of compassion by the Principals, etc.

I think LHS is an excellent school to attend. I am a 2007 alumni and I had the best four years of my life at this school.

Loganville High School is a great school. My child started just last semester and he loves it and getting good grades. The administration.. teachers .. students and parents are all the key to this success. Keep it up LHS.

This was a very good HighSchool. Now it is more of a disciplinary school. They do not seemed to concerned about the amount of students that are failing. These are good students but the enviroment is reppresive to say the least. Also entirely sports oriented. If your child is not into band, football, basketball, cheerleading, etc., there are very little extra activities for them. They also have what is called the 9th Grade Academy. This is located at Loganville Middle School and there are no resources for the students. They have to go to the High School for research, library and any other activity, yet they are still going to school with the Middle School students and it is the Middle School that is the priority .

I graduated from loganville high school and never regretted a moment there. The school has a wonderful administration and lots of activities for each of the students to be involved in. The principle is so great and was very involved with the students as well. The parent involvement was even better. They give great moral support. The one thing i can say that could use a little work is the organization of the counselors. I just felt like they did not completely prepare us for college in time. The applications and paperwork came a little fast and the counselors were so busy and did not have much time for us. Other than that i loved loganville so much and would not change anything about my experience.

As a rising senior, I am very pleased with the environment throughout the school. Every teacher I've encountered has been more than willing to assist me with afterschool help or just repeat a problem. As a officer of the Key club and member of the Drama Department I would say LHS's after school activities are among the best in the state! As for the councilors, they work week after week doing backflipps for the students. Overall LHS has felt like home to me!

My daughter is a junior and overall has had a good experience at LHS. The office staff is great and for the most part the teaching staff is great as well. A couple of teachers just need to go! The counselors seem to take on a pessimistic view with the students future rather than optimistic view. The sports aspect of LHS has been wonderful and the parent involvement in this area is superb.

I am a Junior at Loganville High School and although we are focused on sports, the academia also excels. The range of available AP classes is mind boggling and I am currently enrolled in 3 AP classes. Most of the teachers are professional, especially as you get up into the harder classes. The Marching Band is great and the range of clubs allows students multiple opportunities to impress colleges.Individuality is not suppressed. You can find that by simply walking down the hall in the morning, or the lunch room, or even going to the recent talent show. Parent involvement is low (thankfully). High school is trying to prepare us for college and survival not being constantly monitored and threatened with parental presence.

Loganville High school does not care about the children attending the school just about there overall scores and sports. If a child is a little different they start pushing them (the teachers are doing the pushing)out. Individuality is schunned upon at Loganville, and having an opinion is considered disobedient. I want my children to excell in life and experience all that life has to offer. I also want my children to be themselves and be okay with that.

Very good school. The best school I've been to in a while. I like the high school good enviroment as well as good people. I'm part of the peer leadership program and we help people if they request it and its a great program. Lots of care in this school.

I came to LHS as new incoming senior and had the best senior year ever. My experience at Loganville was the complete opposite of what's posted below. Everyone (especially the faculty and staff) assisted me with open arms in anything I needed. It had a much different atmosphere than my 2 previous HS and was definitely conducive to my learning.

Loganville high school does an above average job for its students. Having moved here from knoxville, tn area, where i thought the public schools that my son attended were excellent, i don't feel we are missing out on anything. My son was in the gifted program, an a student, and he has every opportunity for higher enrichment at this school as well. I am a realtor in the area and from speaking with other people in many different school districts, I feel very good about our schools in loganville, even compared to some of the 'preferred' schools.

As for myself, all of the schools in loganville are great. Yes, we do have problems at all of the different levels, but show me a system in the state of georgia that does not. One thing that really bothers me is all the talk about the seperation of church and state, let me explain, #1 this all came about to keep the state out of the curch not the church out of the state. During sessions of congress prayer is the first thing that happens. When everyone got their 'feelings hurt' about god our scools have begin to slowly decline. Our country laws and all are based on the biblical ten commandments. So put on your big kid undies and get over it.

We have found that there is no place for the individual child here. Teachers don't return phone calls. Counslers are unavailable. My child was a new incoming senior who loved school and loved life. She is now very unhappy, hates the school and just wants to leave. Loganville needs to pay attention to the child not just treat them like a number. These are precious human beings. The school never offered to show her around as a new student, never offered any help at all. I am so very sorry that we moved here.

LHS is a wonderful school. My son has gotten involded in Key Clob (WONDERFUL ADVISORS) and he has had no problems with any of the teachers--OR STUDENTS. Which to me says a LOT for the school. He has never felt as though he didn't belong--I credit this to administration, teachers, parental support, and the students. I have been pleased with the academic programs, and the levels of academics. We came from a different county, and I feel that Loganville (Walton) is well above other standards. I am very pleased with Loganville High School. The administration and staff should feel great about a job well done!

I feel Loganville High School has some major issues. At times my children have been treated like a number, rather than a human. The discipline system is unbalanced- if you are tardy you get the same punishment as a child who has been violent- where's the logic in that? There was a fanatical religious display in the lunchroom by a student last year and no action was taken nor were the parents informed. The school walks the fine line of separation of church and state on many levels. The situation with the counselors is positvely the biggest problem. My daughter is a senior and needs help urgently in regards to college applications and financial aid- she put in a request weeks ago and the counselors have ignored her and will not see her with out an appointment. Bureaucracy gets in the way of education at Loganville High School far too often.
