School Reviews

Horseshoe Bend is a great school as in academics,sports,enviroment, and dicipline wise. The student dress code is just outragous, I mean you put in the student hand book that you may wear a jacket or a pull over of your choice, and then 3 and a half months later you all decide to change the fact that we can wear a pull over of our choice.Also, my opinion of the dress code is that it changes our individuality and who we are, beside it doesn't effect our course of study and how we learn it's just another thing that you all have to worry about, like (Does all the boys have their shirts tucked in , is everyone within the dress code) and just little things like that, besides if ya'll would worry more about our education than what step you need to take to make sure that the student body dresses the way you all want us to ,I think Horseshoe Bend would be a more better school. Personally, I didn't see anything worrg with the way students were dressing before except the boys were slacking a little and if you ask me Coach Boyd made sure he took good care of that. Please, don't get me worng it's a great school it's just that school is getting a little rediculous than ever before.

Horseshoe Bend is a great school. I reccommend this school. And I attend this school. The school is a great school to attend for academics. The sports are good too. The band is good. There is only one problem and that is the dress code.
