I had kidney stones at the beginning of the year and the teachers were more concerned with making sure I was ok but then in my second block I was asked if I could be assigned a Saturday school to get work made up which was fine at the time but then I got the stomach flu twice and strep once due to the unsanitary condition of the school there is rarely soap and toilet paper and never paper towels most of the administrators are concerned about their pay check but there a several that are actually VERY caring for the students and will take time to help the students and also if you get a Saturday school make sure you get there before 8:00 because if not your locked out and counted absent for the four hours of Saturday school there was a teacher that even got locked out and he was there before 8:00

This school has declined greatly in the last 2 years. New school administrators that love to abuse their authority. No concern for student interests in more than one area. Can not handle unruly students with a reasonable punishment. Teachers with no love to teach students in a fun, yet serious manner. If you are a parent in the area and are considering sending your students to this school,I'd suggest Cosby High School instead.

Classes are a joke. There is no emphasis on education. Too much on football even though the program is "Less than spectacular". No leadership in place. Only a few teachers encourage excellence.

Easy to be an honor student. Came from the Midwest, and was not challeged at all. Teachers are nice, but the students who enter High School are so unprepared that they give up. Getting A grades was so easy here. I don't feel ready for college. If you're not interested in a college education, this school is fine.

This like most schools has its weaknesses. I suppose some of the teachers try their best but for some it is just a paycheck. Some students are unruly though so I guess it kind of offsets.

It is a great school. Our county has a small tax base and doesn't offer the greatest salary in the state. However the teachers here stive to do their best to educate the students to the best of their ability. As with any public school you will find those who choose not to work for their education. But this is one school that will provide an enriching education if you are willing to work hard to obtain it. Excellent work.

It's a great school. The principal, and vice-principal, are both very involved and discipline students in a way that teaches a lesson, but is not very harsh. No one is paddled or punished physically in any way by a teacher.
