Bulls Gap School has some of the best teachers in the county. There is a huge lack of dicipline. The principal seems to ignore the hawkins County Board of Education policy. Instances of fighting and bullying go unnoticed or unpunished. their solution to everyting is to send a student to inschool for a day to sit.
