I really like the school the teachers are great. They work really hard to help each student and even if it means one on one after school to make sure they pass.


Posted May 9, 2008

The school provides a safe and family oriented environment. The staff and administration truly care about kids. It may not have all of the bells and whistles of a 'city' school, but we all live here for the 'country' atmosphere and that is what you get at SCHS.

Excellent school. Teachers are caring and involved.

This school has not done much to better help the community. They don't take word from the students when something needs to be done. This school is unreliable.

SCHS is one of the better schools in the district. The teachers really care about the students and provide every opportunity for the students to succeed. Yes, guidance is lacking but this is where the parents must step in to help their child.

I highly recommend Stewart County High School. If you are truly looking at this area I would rely more on test scores than personal reviews since people tend to be biased.

I would have to say this school could be better like Houston County which is right down the road. HC has a great school with great athletics like cheerleading, basketball, baseball and softball if you want my advice go to Houston County High School!

I would say that in overall terms of schools in the US, this school leaves much to be desired, however it is certainly better than some other schools that I have experienced in the area. The clubs are properly funded, although I'd have to say that this is in large part a nod to the teachers that run them as opposed to the system. The school itself does not have many modern amenities that better schools have, although one could argue that this has to do with the area and lack of available funds. If you're looking for a small town to live in, this school is certainly better than, say...Houston County, which is right down the road.

This school does very little to prepare the students for college. Guidance is severly lacking and the caliber of instruction is not keeping up with the times. If you are considering moving to Stewart County and you have children that will be attending the county schools - you owe it to your children to obtain as much information as possible about Stewart County schools before making the decision to move.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
