At the time that I attended Coosa High School, my graduating class was still in the older school building. One thing I didn’t like as much was how old the building was. Now since they have a new building, it looks a lot better. The level of education we were getting at the time was really good but from what current students have stated, classes are harder and to me that seems like it’s better. The reason why it is better is because the staff is better preparing students for college! The sports at Coosa were a big deal and we always had great teams! One thing I would like Coosa to change is their food. The food wasn’t terrible but it could’ve been better

I liked how friendly everyone is and how good the academics are. I have been able to achieve many things there academically over the past couple years. Coosa also embellishes a wonderful band program. The band program is lead by very talented instructors who are increasing the numbers each and every year. Coosa has a wonderful building and campus, and it always looks spotless. The lunchroom options are very diverse and it offers choices for anyone of any tastes. The teachers and staff are reliable, friendly, inspirational, and helpful in any way. I wish I could change how the student body treated each other because sometimes we have multiple fights in one day. Stricter discipline needs to be forced so that students will learn how to behave better.
I like the teacher to student ratio because it allows the teachers to teach us students in a way that helps us learn better. If we are having trouble with a subject, the teacher will immediately know and will make sure to work one on one in order to help us understand. I also like the administration. They will get to know each and every student and will make sure they get the education they need. They give us the right balance of freedom and authorization needed in order to keep a good school running and educated while also making it fun for the students.
