There are a couple of really good instructors. The rest punch the clock and really do more harm than good. There are a lot of really good kids in the community but they are totally unmotivated by the school and the teachers.

I am a single father, 49 and I have 8 children in this school. Every single one of them is failing all their classes. The teachers are rudementary. I am ashamed to say that my children even attend this school and deny it if possible.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) to test high school students in reading, math, language, biology and social studies. High school students must pass the AHSGE in order to graduate. The AHSGE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to pass the test.
