Compared to the other schools Mitchell Co has to offer, the education is unbeatable; the other schools are sub-par in general, & Baconton is the best choice. However, that doesn't make up for the catty, gossipy, judgmental atmosphere that clings to teachers & staff. Kids/teens are synonymous with bullying, but it is inexcusable that the teachers & office staff partake in judging students, relaying rumors, & gossiping relentlessly. I graduated in 2011 & have attended since it opened in 2001. Over the years, the catty, gossiping is one of the few things that have stayed the same since the school opened. On several, several occasions (more than I can count), I personally have had teachers or staff bad-mouth other students in front of me & other students. For the school to preach character, majority of the people on payroll have none whatsoever. There is a handful of people left who truly care about each individual student, such as the principal, vice principal, and a few teachers. Unfortunately, most of the people your child will have to see every single day (esp. office ladies)have the mindset of a snotty teenage girl,& seem inconvenienced & annoyed at your child's presence.
