Need to focus on helping our children not critisizing them, put some postivity into their minds not a bunch of negative things... Maybe they need to convert to the military.. And if they are going to make young women and men out of them maybe they should do it the right way and have them cut thier hair and act like that

I rate this school a 2 star. It is a good school but the Principal needs to retire. The Principal is the reason the school cannot keep good teachers. Also, the graduation passing rate was 66%. This falls back on the Principal. He needs to put qualified Teachers in the subjects that they are qualified to teach. This is the main reason Geneva County High School only had a 66% graduation rate. Get rid of the old Regime.

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.
