The education at this school is mediocre at best. There is no push for excellence. There is more of a push for athletics. There are very few teacher who do their job well.
—Submitted by a student

Are you kidding? You're ability to fit in? If that is the case you and your entire family must be from Guntersville. Sucess is determined by your heritage in this school district and it begins in elementary school.

It's a good school and I'm satisfied with my ability to fit in and the academics are satisfactory.
