Posted April 13, 2004

I am the youngest of six children - the last of 3 that graduated from Corner. One of us has been in the Air National Guard for 20 something years, the next an x-ray technician, and I am in my sophomore year at UAB planning to follow in the footsteps of everyone's favorite teacher from Corner (Mr. Michael Lane Putman) and become an actress/ writer. The teachers at Corner always leave a lasting impression on their students. The nostalgia from the elderly buildings give it an air of its own. Yet, at the same time, the kids have a lot to learn from new technology. Lack of funding (and a little bit of neglect from the county) is the only thing keeping Corner behind. I don't have any bad memories from learning and growing at Corner High School! Go Jackets! Linda Roberts

The teachers and their committment to education is second to none. Every coach, band director, sponsor take their job very seriously, and expect nothing less from the students. I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else. The only downfall the school has is that the building is very old, the students have nothing state of the art as the schools do in our system, but our SAT scores just go to show that you don't have to have state of the art equipment, just committment, determination and hardwork from both students and faculty.

I have two chidren enrolled at this school, I am very pleased with things here. It is a small community with small community qualities.The building itself could use some upgrading.

This school is a great place to learn, but the facilities are poor. The school is very old and needs new improvements.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
