Lockport Township HS teachers, guidance, and administration should be ashamed at the disrepect the have shown to parents and students alike! The LTHS motto is "Students should be allowed to fail". Nice, real nice? Very poor communication with parents and many requests to assist my child were unanswered. LTHS on NCLB probation for two years in a row! Has to offer students school choice, yeah right! Hasn't found a school to take us - What about LWay new school? I've got a house I'll sell you, please someone buy my house!

They need the money because they are overcrowded and can't pass a referendum to build another school.

LTHS offers a wide variety of athletics, clubs and after school organizations for students to participate in. My children are currently going there and I feel they are receiving a very good education even thou they are experiencing overcrowding. I'm an LTHS alum and I'm proud to say that all my children will be as well.

LTHS continually updates their technology and increases students' access to it. They are also a leader in athletics, and have many clubs and student organizations for students to become involved in. LTHS offers a wide array of Advanced Placement and Honors classes, as well as trade-centered curriculum. As a LTHS alum, I am very grateful for my experience and hope to teach there soon.

It is a great school. But it is becoming way to crowded.

I feel this is one of the better schools around this area.

As a parent of a LTHS student I can say that I am completely comfortable sending my child to school there evry day. The staff seem to really care about the students. There are extra-curricular activities to fit every student and the sports teams are well coached.

Lockport Township High School both East Campus and Central Campus are both wonderful places to be. Much is expected of you as a student and respect of everyone is the number one goal of staff and faculty. Lockport's schools house state of the art technology, which other disticts don't have and offer a large amount of different activities and events for the students and faculty. I would highly consider sending a child to this school.

I had some wonderful teachers here but the school needs to move into the new age. There are many issues here that need to be addressed by students and teachers alike.

I was a student at Lockport from 1993-97. I highly recommend this school to any parent looking to give their a child the foundations required to be a hardworking, knowlegeable, and responsible citizen. The teachers, coaches, and staff at LTHS have high expectations for students and settle for nothing less than 'your best effort'. I attribute much of my current successes in life to them and I am forever grateful.

As a graduate of LTHS, I would like add to the words that have already been stated. LTHS is a quality school that provides a well rounded atmosphere for learning and growing into adulthood. In both academics and athletics LTHS stands above the pack in their conference and state as a lighthouse in our community.

I'm not a parent, I'm a student from Lockport. Overall, this is a very good school. The teachers are great, and very helpful, and the school has very strict rules for disipline. I never felt unsafe at Lockport, nor had a reason not to. I got a great education and I loved this school. The resources available are great, and the members of the offices are really nice people. I would recommend sending your child here for school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
