School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2013 - I am very pleased with the education that my son get at Notasulga High School. My grandson loves the school and the faculty there. He also loves the coaches and the sports they offer to him. I especially thank Coach Lucas for guiding him in the right way and for being that male figure in Aurick's life. He really look up to his coaches. They have been great mentors for him and he really listen to them. When he lost his grandfather-father he was acting out a lot, but since he has been into sports I have seen a great change in him. Thanks to all of the faculty and staff that had a hand in it. Also a special thanks to assistant principal Williams who told me that he refuse to let Aurick slip through the cracks. Thanks. - Posted by Parent

Teachers in 19 States Allowed to Physically Punish Students
As of 2014, nineteen states still allow corporal punishment – spanking and paddling the most common choices – in their public schools. However, some argue that not only are these punishments physically harmful, they also are disproportionately administered to students of color. As a result, House democrats have taken up the issue in a new bill that would ban all forms of corporal punishment nationwide.
