This school is a joke! DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD HERE! Very bad place and very poor.

I can't put in words how bad this place is. This school is so bad that other kids moved to better schools.

Worst school ever! I went here last year. We moved to Dothan for a better school. Thank God! Rude place and very nasty!

I have had a great opportunity to experience a school system that works not for some but for all of the students. Both the high school and the middle schools in Geneva take education seriously. Every child receives the same education, regardless of their status or economic background. These two schools should be used as models of what every school can do to create a unique learning environment for all. Coming from New Orleans Metro area, I was quite pleased to see that there was a smaller class ratio over teacher and students. I was also very surprised to see that there was so much involvement between the teachers and the students. Everything from a child failing a class to the teachers and the students seating and having lunch together. The subjects that are covered have been in areas in which many kids in others schools do not cover until they are much older. It is a great thing to see teachers who not just there to teach the students, but they are concerned about their future.One example is the computer class, the teacher in this class not only covers the basic for computer theory. He also teaches them the proper maintenance of computers. There is also a class in the high school that teaches in depth money management.
