Cocke County High School was unique compared to a lot of other high schools I've been to. Many students there excelled in vocational and agricultural classes due to the school being located in a rural area, and placed in many CTE state competitions. The school has even won first place multiple times in state ROTC competitions. What I loved the most about this school is being in their choir. To me it was one of the best choirs around. Some of the teachers at this school have helped me grow and become the person I am now. This is truly a great school.
At Cocke County High School, the community there is very connected and takes part in a large amount of service projects to aid the community outside of school. However, many things about the school is very poor, including but not limited to: teachers and their ability, administration leadership and involvement, school building quality and cleanliness, and outdated resources. I would love to see these and many other factors to improve, but the school district is in a very improvised county (80% of population is under the poverty line), and therefore is very difficult for the school to gain improvements. I would recommended Cocke County High School to those who want a very connected and caring school community but not to those increased in college preparedness.
