School Reviews

My review on the yazoo county high school district is as follows. Its academic programs are okay.The availiability of music is okay. Its sports on the other hand are getting out of control. The high school focuses more on sports than they do on students and they let the students that participate in the sports slide by on d's and f's. Now their extracurricular activities could be better. Their parent involvement is low.
