AMAZING high school. Best kept secret in the county. It's sad because this school gets put down when being compared to other parts of the county, but the teachers work so hard to help the students. My son loves it and wouldn't go anywhere else. The principal is rough and needs to respect the teachers more, but they carry on and that's why this school has become an amazing place to be. Do not be afraid to send your child here. It's the best and they will love it.

LHS is a great school. I love the dual enrollment program and the new Bible class they have started this semester. My child has grown so much and created wonderful relationships with students and staff.

I am a student at Lavergne High currently and I witnessed the change in administration as that seems to be a big topic here. It really wasn't that bad. It all has to do with how well your child or yourself deals with change. The new administration has done wonders for Lavergne high. The school has been refreshed with a new coat of paint and new decor as well as a new faculty. If you look at recent scores in testing of the school, you would see that they have improved rather dramatically. I have learned more in the last year than i have in the previous two. As for the new staff i give it at least an A minus. As for the new Principal and his administration.. they tried their best their first year. They had to try different things to see what would work best. This year they are more organized and everything seems to be running like clock work. I personally am in extra-curricular activities (band) and those also are getting better. Mr. Freytag and Mr. Crumley do an excellent job with the band. All of the coaches and club presidents also do an outstanding job at Lavergne. This school really gets worse critic than it deserves and that is coming from someone who is on the inside.

Though it's not the best high school in terms of parental involvement, that alone should not determine the success or failure of a student (though there are strong correlations between high parental involvement and high grades achieved by a student). The teachers are phenomenal, and are some of the best I've ever had. The teachers in the LHS English Dept., in particular, demand a lot from their students, and helped me hone my critical thinking skills, which prepared me greatly as an undergrad. However, the Math department could definitely use some improvement as far as its faculty is concerned (some of the teachers give grades out as opposed to making the students earn their grades). Overall, great teachers, great extra-curriculars, and great learning environment (especially with the old principal gone now)

Some students and teachers have demonstrated such an incapacity to change that they are willing to condemn anything that is unfamiliar. The new administration has made both good and bad contributions, and as they are relatively new to the school, some leniency should be allowed as they edit and make changes. The messy orientation is no reason to slander the people. It was a very good idea that crumbled under an influx of unexpected people. The error won't be made again.

I am new to the Lavergne. My home is in Smyrna but we are zoned for Laverge because (in my opinion) to lower the number of children that are economically disadvantaged in Lavergne. My son seems to like the school thus far but I do see a problem with parental involvement. The community must support a school for it to be a good school. I can't rate this school yet since this is my son's first year but I do give the parents in Lavergne an "F" for poor support of their school.

The new principal is useless! Whoever said he made improvements must not be paying attention. ALOT of great teachers have left because of him. Orientation was a horrible mess, that he organized (more like unorganized), and some students aren't even getting time to eat lunch. If I had known he was going to be taking over as principal I would have moved. Maybe the previous principal wasn't perfect, but at least he cared about the students...this principal doesn't care about anything but making life more difficult for the students and the teachers!

The new principal has made a lot of improvements. I have two kids that go here and they both love it.

This was a terrible high school if you want to go to a good college. Though I had a handful of superb teachers, the principal ran the school into the ground. If anyone looks at how many honors/AP teachers have left to go to other schools in the past few years then they would be shocked. The best teachers that school has had are now gone, Mrs. Rhonda Smith (Calculus) and Philip Simpson (Band). My first year of college was more difficult than it should have been.
