I just want to say that our school needs to get more involved with the See you at the pole! Olivia, my niece was the only one that showed up this morning! I am Soooo Proud of her. But what does that say about our school. If you want to see a change in the school to the better, do more for God. Pray. Pray. Pray.

This school is good because it has so many choices for vocational classes. The principal was charismatic and friendly, although rumor has it that J.Z. George has a new female principal this year. There is an excellent gifted program, too, for students of superior intellect. (There are several at J.Z. George.)

Well, J.Z. George was a pretty good school when I attended. I think that they should keep up the good work. Especially, when they built a new gym.

I graduated from George in 2003. Since I have left the school has grown. Everything that we wanted while we were there is happening. There is an atmosphere of family with all the staff, from security to cooks in the kitchen. George gave me the support I needed to grow. With the new principal, James Gant, this school is headed to a bright future. And I believe he will bring many needed programs to the school and area.

J.Z. George was a great school. It taught me the importance of friendship and understanding differences in people. There could be a boost in the variety of extra-activities avaliable for students. Overall I think more schools should be like George!

Jz george is an awesome learning facility that makes all the students feel at 'home' in Carrollton, out in the country. I graduated there in 2003 and am not at ole miss. The students I graduated with are still good friends of mine. I will never forget the teachers and staff that helped me get where I am today. Besides the need for activities, it is a great school and would do it all over again.

J. Z. George is a very nice school. But it just has a lot of misunderstood students. Things that the school needs to become a good school like better books, a gym, a band, and better teachers. It just doesn't have. It is not a bad school to attend but certainly not the best. But it has a great princpal, Dr. Paul Miller.
