I have two teenagers in Louisa County HS. Both are getting As and Bs. Both are in advanced classes. I cannot say enough good things about this school. Have a problem and they work with you regarding same. I feel it is up to the children and parents to get as much from a school as possible. I feel my children are getting a very good education from the teachers and staff at LCHS. I would not move anywhere else.

How is Louisa HS today in 2013 & what should I expect it to offer my 17yr old daughter? We're relocating to Louisa in October 2013. Sincerely, Future Parent.

After the Earthquake here in Louisa, the community has grown in ways I otherwise thought impossible. When we found out that our High School was not deemed fit to attend, we students paniced at the thought of being split into other schools. The Superintendent and staff did an EXCELLENT job on creating a game plan and executing that game plan. The teachers at LCHS are fabulous as well. They all create comfortable teaching enviornements and help their students at any means possible. I have learned so much at LCHS and I very proud to consider myself a lion! :)

I can't fathom why LCHS is rated a mere 6. The leadership of Principal Doug Straley and Superintendent Deborah Pettit is excellent. Test scores have gone up (all SOL subject areas at or over 90% passing in 2009-2010) and course offerings have diversified. More than half of the Class of 2010 was college-bound. Meanwhile, faculty attrition, drop-outs, and student fights have plummeted. Our faculty is committed to professional development and integrating technology into our instruction. More than half of our students participate in sports and our arts programs are robust as well. LCHS is a spirited, caring, and achievement-focused environment and I'm proud to teach there.

Being a parent Of three children attending Louisa schools I have seen the high school grow by leaps and bounds in recent years. They have added 6 more AP classes and the Governors School program is evolving and adding new classes. The athletic director, Doug Straley, has really improved the scools public image and has the community highly involved in LCHS athletics and made it one of the best in the region. He is still working on getting the best coaches he can for all the sports. The counselors are very attentive and will give personalized care to each student, they really care how they are doing! All in all one of the best rural school districts in the state and a great tool for myself to use to help educate my children.

I am not a parent either, rather a junior at LCHS. I feel that overall LCHS is a fantastic learning environment. Dedicated to excellence in education, Louisa is personal; everyone is on a first name basis. Our principal (the fabulous Mr. Jeck) makes it his personal mission to ensure that the entire student body succeeds. It is also the goal of many of our educators to see each and every student succeed in life. At Louisa, not only do you leave every day having learned something, you leave knowing that each and every one of your teachers and administrators truly care about you and your future. Casey Neeley

I am not a parent but, I am a Junior at this school and it is awesome. I enjoy going to school everyday and seeing all of the teachers and students. Louisa is small enough that everyone knows eachother and I love that. I honestly wouldn't go to any other high school in the district if I had a choice. I've always lived in Louisa and i've had no problems with the amount of education I receive. I also believe we have the best educators of all of the high school in the district. They really know what they're doing and great participation in clubs and sports. Fully accredited? Good job Dr. Melton.
