I go to horseshoe bend school and it's a pretty nice school. Kids are normally pretty nice and it's good that you can just have your school career in one school. Although the dress code is something I would like to address (excuse the pun). Now I would say the dress code is pretty decent. But they just have so much small stuff especially the fact that they make the boys tuck their shirts in which doesn't make sense. If a boy has his shirt not tucked in nobody really cares. It's not effecting our learning. Coming from a girl I have never heard another girl say Look at Jay he doesn't have his shirt tucked in that's so cute. Like come on who would say that. Now something in the lunchroom. I asked the lunch lady's, and they said it was government issued food so I guess it's not really their fault but their sweet potato fries are HORRIBLE. The normal fries are awesome don't get me wrong they are just so bad. That's the end of this really long review I'm sorry it was so long but thanks for reading.

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.
