Poor academic curriculum and poor teaching skills. This school, like most in Lewis county is ran by what some refer to as the "good ole boys club" and if you are not in the club you or your children do not benefit! Many misdeeds from teachers and students alike go unpunished and the scales are not set level for all students. It is a shame when the majority of residents are aware of how things are ran in this town but changes are rarely made for the better. The state of Tennessee needs to take an inside look into what goes on in their schools!
