Trigg County High School1

My school serves the exact same lunch menu every two weeks. Not only is is distasteful, but the portions served do not meet up with the required portions according to the National School Lunch Program. Elementary age children get the same portions as do the high school students. The students in high school are required to pay around $2 for a meal at the school, but if they just wait, they could pay the same price at McDonalds for 3x the serving size, providing a more filling meal.
We have a great school here with above average teachers who not only teach but connect with the students. However, what does it matter what color a student's hair is? Hair cuts can be just as distracting. Will they ban that also? What's the point of making a rule that students can't dye their hair unnatural colors? Why put a limit on the individuality of students? Trigg is an excellent school, but like everything it has it's flaws.
The school system is pretty good with a wide variety of after school activities, but now they have started the Freshman Academy which keeps them away from the upper class. This contributes a lot of controversy ranging from the bell schedules to when you go to lunch, but other than that I think that it is a pretty good school.
This school has some great teachers who will offer the students puzzles and challenge the minds of those who are gifted. To name a few: Donna Carter, Robbie Shelby, Coach Burcham. But, do not allow the humble image cast a fake view infront of your eyes. This school deals with great problems with drugs and gangs, racial tensions.
