Great school, prepared me exceptionally well for a top ten nationally ranked college. I will argue that you get what you put into it, if a student isn't willing to work hard and put forth the effort, then they are not going to learn. Easy as that.

Sand Rock High School is probably the strongest high school academically in Cherokee County, but that's not saying much. Like the other high schools in Cherokee County, Sand Rock allows students the opportunity to pursue technical career interests, but has virtually nothing in the way of the arts--no choir, no band, no drawing or drafting classes, and the most minimal foreign languages and theater programs you could possibly imagine. (A very small senior class play hardly qualifies as a drama program, and they don't even have a Spanish teacher anymore this year.) During the years we've been there, there has been bullying and sexual misconduct, some of which has been addressed by the teachers. A lot has not. Despite some good teachers who care about their students, it's not very good. If you live in Cherokee County, it's better than the other options, though. Just don't move here.

Both of my children attend Sand Rock School. I truly believe it is the best school around. Student acheivement is high and teacher expectations are high. It is a small school, but it is growing and expanding every year. I think the teachers do a great job preparing students for the future.

I think Sand Rock is amazing. I am currently attending this school. It as really good involvement including a wonderful tutoring program, and extracurricular activities. The students are very well behaved. The teachers are very nice and enthusiastic, which keeps us involved very well during class.

I am a graduate of Sand Rock High School and I can tell you this is the BEST school in North Alabama! The teachers and the students are great. The other people that had issues with this school on this site should rethink the problem. It was not the school or teachers maybe it was just you and your children. Sand Rock is the best!

I have two kids. They both have went to Sand Rock. It is a wonderful school. I have had no problems with the teachers. When ever I have complianed it was handled. and I have found it very useful if you are active in your kids school. Get to know the teachers and other memebers of the school. I would not send my kids to any other school. I love the school and my kids do to.
