the school is the best. Hi ! from the Ukraine. I will remember this school evtry my life


Posted December 19, 2009

I love this school, I am involved in all of the extracurricular activities and I spend all my free time there doing something after school. If you want to go to a school that has the best teacher, the most caring staff, the best students with on almost zero crime rate, then I reccomend sending your kids to the school I go to and that is Couch High school/ elementry school. Mr.Bull, Mrs.Woods, and Mr.Deckard are the best principals and superintendents the world has ever seen and they truly do care how you are doing in school! I love couch High school and if you send your kids there I think you will to. I am Charles Abbott and I am a student of couch high school that wil graduate in 2011 and believe me couch is the only school I want to go to!
