Not impressed, moved here 4 years ago from Bartlett Tn right outside of Memphis and i would have to say that the schools here are no better than there. Im not sure why teachers here have such attitudes and like tointimidate the children. And i can see why children are home schooled. Things really need to change with the staff and curriculum.
