Cleburne County High School Reviews

71 reviews
All Categories
Too much emphasis and focus on Football versus other sports. Football team (positions, playing time, etc.) appears to be controlled by outside sources instead of from head coach. Maybe he has been there too long and doesn't care anymore. May be time for a complete re-haul of coaching staff. Huge lack of sports to participate in. It is a 4a-5a school and only has Football, Basketball, Wrestling, Track and Baseball for male students to participate in. Other smaller area schools offer Golf and Fishing teams. Not all students are athletically inclined. Again this falls back on the Athletic Director (head Football coach). Not a place I would want my children to attend if athletically talented. Coaching staff will keep him down in order to prevent recruiters from looking at them. Have seen it personally year after year after year. The Alumni talk.

I attend Cleburne County HIgh, and I think it is an excellent school overall. Some problems here and there, (like teacher/student drama, etc) . But overall, I think I want my future children to attend this school. It's small, and there is a lot of one on one student/teacher time.
Cleburne County is a pretty good school. There is a lot of emphasis on football, and not many other sports. There is a very good special-ed department, but not for the gifted students. Most student who were "gifted" in elementary school are just left at the normal level instead of getting work that is on their level.
