As a former student, I can atest that this is one of the finest educational institutes this side of the mississippi. When i left claiborne I joined the TN National Guard, and I honestly believe that my teachers while at this school were the reason i was able to pass all the required tests' to become an armed forces memeber. So in liue of this I would suggest enrolling your children in such a wonderfull institution, If you want there full educational capabilities to blossom.

I recently graduated from this school and now currently I am attending college. I must say that this school is a joke in comparison to the other high schools in Tennessee. Academics are not valued and that is why the state is going to take it over in 2 years. Something needs to be done because all the focuses on graduation rate instead of on offering college courses. I must say that my tenure at this school was a complete disappointment.

As a parent of two high schoolers, I am glad that our children have a nice school like this to attend.

Not only is this a model school on the blueprints, several teachers I work with are awesome. They come early and leave late. The caring doesn't stop at the classroom door...If you work here you know it's not perfect, but then where is? I have learned a lot from the faculty and staff here and hope to welcomed here for the rest of my career.

this school has many problems, doesn't consider the students education to be prioity, athletes in this school are considered to be 'over' the normal students, in my opinion, they are trying but not hard enough, if you are considering sending your child here, i would advise a different school for the time-being.

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.
