What I liked about Bledsoe County High School was everyone knew everyone. However, I didn't like that the teachers were lazy and didn't teach. The counselor doesn't do the job that is assigned and doesn't help with college at all. I feel like the majority of the students and parents would agree that our teachers and staff are very poorly suited for their jobs. Many teachers just give the answers to every test and say keep up with it and you can use it. While other teachers give you pop quizzes on things they didn't teach. Mainly they just sit and put videos on to occupy us. Then when we get to college we won't know how to do any of the things they assign because of the poor teaching system. I've had 2 great teachers my whole time here at Bledsoe County High School. The number should be far more than that. I just feel sorry for the upcoming kids that have to deal with the same issues and won't know how to put up with it, get ready for college, or know how to apply for college.

Bledsoe County High School is a great school. This school has a lot of different clubs and organizations to join. However, I wish this school would gain a Criminal Justice program. My major in college will be Criminal Justice and not having this program has not benefited me and hasn’t provided me with information that I will need to know about this program of study when I go to college. On the other hand, it has many supportive and helpful teachers. They always are there to help and answer questions and know how to make class fun.
Bledsoe County High School wasn’t a terrible experience, but it wasn’t the best either. There are only about 500 students at my school, therefore funding is very low. I feel like I’m prepared for college, but since Bledsoe is a small school, I’m not excited for a big city.
