compared to the schools i have gone to in the past it is pretty good. the teachers are nice but the principles are a pain. they could be a lot better if they actually listen to the students rather than always just listening to what the teachers say. the teachers are not always right.

Searcy High School is the best school I've ever been to! The staff is great, the student body is okay, and I get a really good education tere.

Academic programs are good, extracurricular activities-could be better, parent involvement is good. I don't think the dress codes and other rules are dominated like they should be. The girls athletics don't get enough recognition as the boys sports. The money for the sports activities need to be distributed more evenly.They need head coaches for each sport not someone that is tied up with another sport and can't do the other until the first one is over. Fall ball for baseball and softball would be nice. Tryouts for all sports the first of the year would be nice so everyone could try out at one time. College Prep. is very good for the students. we will definitely miss Mr. Crow.

I'm a '05 Senior from SHS. I have gone to Searcy my whole life and I think even though the school does have some downfalls, overall, it's a great school. Of all my four years attending SHS, I've seen MAYBE two fights. We have a great resource officer who has befriended many, teachers who actually care about their students, and students who out-of-the blue will say 'hi' just because. If I had the choice in picking any school or Searcy, I would pick Searcy in a heart beat.

Though Searcy prides itself for being one of the top schools of the state, it is far from the best. I attended the school last year and it was a major let down. The teachers pick their favorites and really don't seem to care (not all of them, but most.) It's quite hard to make friends with anoyone too if you just move there, because you did not grow up there with them they don't welcome you.

Searcy High School has an excellent academic program and also excellent extracurricular programs. Since Searcy is a college town, most of the parents are education oriented; there fore, there is a lot of parental involvement. This always helps a school distict. The honors classes at Searcy High School are top notch. They are some of the best in the state.

I attended Searcy High school and graduated in 1987. As every school has its ups and downs, however, Searcy High seemed to be open and accepting to the students. I was certainly not one of the kids from the wealthy families, but that did not seem to have an impact. The faculty were all approachable, meaning that they were there if you needed them. The principal did seem distant from the students though. I would be happy to enroll my children in Searcy High School and would feel safe in their education and performance.

I'm not a parent but I do currently attend SHS, and I'm going into 12th grade, and I think Searcy High School is an excellent school. The teachers not only teach us things but they support us and push us to do our best. We're disciplined but they're not really really really strict. There's no reason to feel scared or uncomfortable at this school. Many great students have left SHS and become really successful people, not only in academics, but sports, because we have a great athletic program. This school is a wonderful school for all 9th-12th graders to attend.

This school is honestly a descrase to Searcy. Many families come here for the school district but Searcy High School is a major let down. I am more afraid at this school than any other school I have ever attended. Teachers play on their favoritism and the prinicples could care less. In my opinion SHS is a major two thumbs way down.
