Minor Hill School, I like that the teachers really have concerns about every child they come in contact with. The welfare of the children seems to be in all of the teachers best interest. Thank you Minor Hill School for being so good to my grandchildren, L. Smith

I think Minor Hill School is wonderful. My son is the only one of my three kids in school right now, but I will gladly register my other two and look forward to years to come at MHS.

I attended and thought it was a great small towen school with lots of one-on-one attention and teachers not afraid to discipline the students when they get outta line. No thug attitude exists there which makes the environment easier to learn in.


Posted November 1, 2004

This school is an excellent school for children.Our small school has some of the sweetest and caring teachers I have ever met.They honestly teach our children more than just the fundamentals. They teach our children that caring and understanding is first.I attended Minor Hill School and my children will attend as well.You can't find a better school in all of Giles County.
