As a former student of Locust Grove, I will say that Locust Grove is one of the best schools I have ever attended. Excellent teachers and administrators! I even achieved a prefect score on the SOL. Locust Grove has many different electives to offer, and all of the teachers are experienced and know how to teach.The students are very respectful of each other. An excellent school.

i love locust grove!!!! it is awesome and filled with wonderal students and teachers! So far it has been a great year although last year...2012-2013...alot has going on such as a teacher beating other students and one of the male teachers ....arrested!! hopefully, we are back on track. as far as im concerned, this school is very clean and the principal takes alot of pride in her work to keep us students succeeding in great excellence. if you dont have anything nice to say about our school..then dont say anything. keep hating and teachers, keep GRADING!! :) GREAT WORK LGMS"! lets have another great year for 2013-2014!

This school has a terrible principal and only a few nice teachers. I will be moving to a new state and starting 8th grade, but I would like to recommend a great 7th grade teacher at LGMS, Mr. Stewart. I've learned more from him than any other teacher. He is a social studies teacher who really loves his job. He's great!!!

It is our first year at LGMS . My concern is the choice of electives. Specifically Foreign Language options, drama, home economics, etc. With the block schedule my daughter ended up with PE both semesters because Spanish was full and there were no other choices. She already has Chorus but really wanted a foreign lanaguage before entering high school which will not happen. Seems like they are really trying but perhaps do not have the resources available.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
