Sardis is a great school for any student. We have an excellent sport and band programs, but these are inproving every year also. There is also a lot of new students coming to Sardis all the time. We are also getting a new school very soon that will help improve Sardis in thier academics with the new computers and new labs. The new school will as include a new gym, so that the girls and boys can both practice during our P.E. class. That will let students have more time at home to study because we won't have to stay after school as much. Sardis also has a girls athletic P.E. so that the volley ball and basket ball players can practice during. In conclusion Sardis is the best! Better than all the rest.

I think we should be allowed to use cell phones for emergency calls only.

I transfered mid-year to this school and was treated very well. All of the teachers that were teaching there were very nice and did a wonderful job. I now have two kids and would gladly send them to Sardis.

I would rate this school as very poor. The teachers (most of them) rude and don't care at all about the students feelings or their individual needs. Their attitudes toward students who register mid-year are especially poor. They expect them to be on the same level as the rest of the students. What they don't understand is diffeent schools teach different things at different times.
