Overall, Coosa High School is a really clean and safe environment for young students. I feel encouraged to an extent, but it's really just the people that lower my rating for it. A lot of the teachers are really just not compatible with certain students, especially the math teachers. I know they're pushing me to achieve the best of myself, but I genuinely feel like once your in a place that they're okay with, they don't really care anymore. A lot of the students in my grade are really talented education-wise, and there's really no information were being given for our future. They expect us to go to city universities nearby instead of listening to what we want.

Coosa High School is a good school. The building is only a few years old and looks great. The administrators are very friendly and helpful. If I ever need something I know who to go to. There are some areas for improvement, however. The school needs newer supplies and materials. A lot of books and materials are over a decade old and outdated. The school also needs to remodel the football stadium. The concession stands and press box need to be torn down and rebuilt. The school also needs to build a new track. Right now its just asphalt which can be detrimental to runners. I am a member of the band and love it but we are severely underfunded. We need new instruments and can't afford them. Our tubas were made in the late 1940s. They probably were made from world war II scrap metal.
My overall experience at this school would have to be an above average for the overall school-life. The flow of academics and safety is at a high standard at this school when students show willingness to learn. However, the school pride and connections with nontraditional school clubs lack in connection with the students. This may not be to blame on the institution itself but rather the very toxic and dull students that commonly attend.
