As far as I am concerned this is by far the best school to send your child to if you want them fully prepared for college. My daughter who is in the Class of 2011 graduated early and is now attending college 6 months ahead of her classmates. While at SHHS she was always treated with respect and kindness. Mr. Norton and Ms. Ivey are excellent leaders and the teachers are always there to help your child. A special thanks to Ms. Belinda and Ms. Sandy in the Ayers Foundation office for all of their hard work, the amount of scholarships and grants that they helped my daughter find and apply for got her into college early and at very little expense to me. ONE A LION ALWAYS A LION, Thank you SHHS!!

I am a SHHS student , and I wouldn't go to any other high school besides Scotts Hill High School. The classes are great , and we have AMAZING teachers!! The school is very safe and secure. Mr. Norton and Ms. Ivy are very nice and will help you if you need it. "Once a Lion always a Lion" Class of 2014

I graduated from this school in 2003. I went there from 2nd grade on. I sure missed Mr. Crews when he left but it is an excellent school. Mrs. hart is the best teacher in the entire world! Mrs. Landry is so sweet and fun and helped me so much. The only problem I know of with the school is last I was aware of they did not offer Spanish classes anymore. I mean the students dont need to know French, they need Spanish especially considering the local population of different languages.

I graduated from SHHS in 2007, I attended Scotts Hill School since the 3rd grade and loved every minute I was there. There are some pretty awesome teachers that will be there to help you no matter what. Mrs.Hart is one of the best teachers in the USA! This school gets a bad rep because of the location. Scotts Hill isn't exactly known for its diversity, but all in all the town along with the school is awesome. I am due in July with a baby and my children will for sure be going to Scotts Hill Schools.

This is a very good school. I graduated from Scotts Hill sveral years ago. One of my children graduated in 2007 and I have a son that is a Freshman there now. The school went htrough some tough times, but thanks to Mr. Norton and staff we are doing great now. Everyone is treated fairly and the rules apply to everyone, no matter who you are. I do agree that we get 'left out' if your sport is not basketball, but education is my first priority.

I have no bias toward Scotts Hill as both My daughters have graduated,so take to heart that I firmly belive there is no better place to have a child educated on earth.The school is small enough that the entire staff can call every student by name,and recognize each ones individual needs and problems.Funding is a problem as far as having a great diversity of non required subjects, as well as some sports offered by other area schools,but I feel that they do the best that can be done with limited resources.The Principal is a stern disciplinarian with good christian values,and is the foundation on which the quality of the school stands.The facilities are second to none as they were built only a short time ago and are very well maintained.Congratulations, Mr. Norton & staff on taking'the stepchild' of area schools, in a few years, to the example everyone shoots for.

I have attended Scotts Hill High School since Kindergarten, and I have thoroughly enjoyed all eleven years. Our school has a great selection of sports and extra curricular activities. In my junior high years I was a part of the dance team, cheerleading squad, beta club, and yearbook staff. Now, in high school, I have recently joined cross country. Our teachers are top of the line educators. Scotts Hill High School helps students to want to achieve high goals. We are perhaps a smaller school, but none the less, we are a great school.

To be honest, Scotts Hill High School used to be an unstable school. Since we have gotten our new principle, Mr. Norton, our school has improved and has excellent programs. Thank you, Mr. Norton for improving Scotts Hill High School.

I am a Scotts Hill High School student and I think that the school is an excellent example of a high standard of what a school is suppose to be. This now marks it s fifth year in the new building. All faculty are highly qualified to be able to teach and educate all students that attend the school.. In therefore saying, Scotts Hill High School is an excellent place for any student who wants to learn and ready themselves for the future.

I have had a child in this school system and believe it to be a great system. They lack in some of the programs that are offered to prepare children for college.Some teachers are very helpful while others sit back and do nothing to help a student to acheive the best that they can. The major problem I see, is if your child ever gets into any trouble or is with the wrong group they become stereotyped as a 'bad child' and to some extent become harrassed by being watched all the time or followed by the assitant princpal. This can be very demeaning to the child to the point of the child never wanting to return to the school.

I graduated from this school. I loved sports, but the only sport worth playing was basketball because that is where all the funding went. Every other sport had to raise their own money to buy their uniforms or equipment. What about the fields? Softball had a ratty field while the boys had a good one... why? Because the boys would get to leave class to work on their field, but the girls had to stay in class. I was totally not prepared for college. I did well in school and did my homework, but this was a huge slap in the face. Oh! and if you weren't a teacher's pet, you could kiss your education good-bye!

This school is the newest built high school in the area. It does not have the technical support as some of the other school my children have been in but is overall good. It offers only french as a foriegn language, which is not what the majority of the students or parents want, but our opinion was not asked for. The school devotes its activity maoneies toward basketball and baseball even though there is a soccer team and softball, but they recieve no help from the school. Classes I believe are taught well and the teachers and counselors all are willing to talk to the parents. They teach advanced courses but not any AP courses for college credits.
