My child has attended this school for 4 yrs and I want to thank the principal, Brian Terry and coach Woody Green for caring and taking a personal interest in my child. It is comforting to know your child is safe and secure in your care and that he / she is encouraged in every aspect of their life. I would recommend this school to anyone, as I feel the staff is involved with the students on a personal level in academics as well as sports. Mr. Terry takes the time to know his students and their parents and to be involved. Also, it is a beautiful and well kept school in spite of the fact that education is so underfunded in Alabama. I believe this is possible because the staff and students respect their school.
