School Reviews

I currently moved here to Tishomingo County High School and I have really enjoyed it. The teachers and staff are very kind and helpful. The students are nice and funny. The teachers here actually care and want to help you and help keep your grades up. I love this school and its better than the school i went to up to my ninth grade year second semester.
