I graduated in 2008 but only went to SCHS for 2 years. Before I went to Signal Mountain schools. The education was just enough to call it that in the states eyes. The teachers do not go above and beyond like I was used to. The materials we learned, books we read, and things we were to be tested on were old news! I had already learned/read it in Middle School. When it was time for my child to start kindergarten I was 100%sure I did NOT want to send him to Sequathie County Schools.

Very amazing school system. I really love our school, being highly educated. I have gone to Sequatchie County Schools all my life and I plan to continue being there. I love Sequatchie.

I couldn't agree more, the extra curricular activities are NECESSARY for success, we left there, it became apparent they are still educating just enough to make some good coal miners.

don't ever expect a snow day because they don't let school out no matter how unsafe it is submitted by a student who believes his life gets put in danger way too much just to make a school look good.

im sorry but as a student i just couldnt agree with this at all. sure the teachers are OK but most of them do not put forth ANY effort to actually challenge us kids. all in all i think the student body cares about one another and if very friendly in general. but a major issue also, is communication between the principal, teachers, students, and parents. i never EVER know whats going on! unless the office announces news over the intercom. and lastly, i dont think they are doing a good jog with getting students ready for college! there needs to be more extracurriculars! especially in the 'arts'.

This school system in very harsh about not letting the kids out for weather or sickness related.

I have been extremely pleased with the quality of education I feel my daughter is receiving at SCHS. Her teachers and the principal know her personally, and care about her not only as a student but as a person. I have two older children who graduated from two other schools, and I believe the environment at Sequatchie is definitely preferable.

The teachers actually care about the students!

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.
