My son went to school the last half of his senior year here and it was very friendly...He had a much better time here...

I have attended Blevins High School since seventh grade and I am currently in tenth grade. Everyone is friendly there and the teachers really care about their students. All of the students treat each other as a family and have open arms for new students. The school is really focused on education and the teacher's have a lot of one on one time with the students. Recently gaining new staff has greatly improved our school's test scores and allow a greater range of studies for students. I could never dream of attending a better high school.

This school is in a poverty stricken area, full of backward and ignorant hicks. As the statistics prove they are failing every subject, far below the national and state average, with test scores in the 20's. Is is a very cliquish and clannish school where they "don't cotton much" to strangers or outsiders. The few families that have heat and running water in their homes fancy themselves to be "rich" and put on airs. These students feel superior to the other children who are living well below the poverty line. Anyone with two nickels to rub together is a god.

I attended Blevins School from 1st to 12th grade. I was fortunate to work and retire from the school after 25 years. My children graduated from blevins and now my grand-children are attending there. I would not have it any other way. The faculty is top-notch. They care about each and every student.

I have one child that attends Blevins High School and he would have it no other way. The staff is always there to help when I need it. If I have a question about grades, all I do is call. I will have an answer as soon as possible. The teachers are there to guide these young people into becoming wonderful adults. My son knows that in order to play ball he has to make the grades. Basketball is a big part of the high school life, (for boys and girls). I am looking forward to the day when my daughter can join my son. The principle is AWSOME!

I attended Blevins High School from 7th grade to my senior year. The schools academic programs were excellent and the staff excell in their teaching and nurturing abilities. The teachers take the time to get to know their students, therefore allowing them to be at ease in a classroom setting. The parent involvment is definetly obvious. If and a student's grades seem to be slipping past their potential, the parents are notified by mail and if all else fails a phone call. They have tutoring sessions for most subjects, and if a student needs a one-on-one to understand something better the staff will stop at nothing to help out. 'Striving for Excellence' is not only their moto, it's a guideline that they live by. A definite A+ school all around.C
