The entire fine arts hall is underfunded and it's hard for us as students to raise money to do things. I am not fond of all the rules, especially on dress code and the lack of leniency on certain tardy policies. Just today I saw a guy walking around the halls throughout the day with his shirt completely un buttoned and his chest bare. However if a girl wears a tank top, she can get written up for indecency. A boy's bare chest is decent for school but a girl's shoulders are not? And the lack of leniency on certain things for tardiness/absences to school on what is or is not excused. If someone's car breaks down, that should be excused. If someone is sick, that should be excused without a doctor's note because some 9 times out of 10, a doctor is not needed and over the counter medications will do. Traffic, storms, power outages, family troubles. With a signed note from a parent, these things should be excused.

Cordova High School has the best choir worldwide and I am a part of it! Mr. Maclin is an excellent choir teacher and he is able to get the very best out of students who do not know their full potential. I have been in the choir since 10th grade and the choir room is the place to be! Everyone congregates their to sing before school, during lunch, and even after school.
Cordova is a decent school that has plenty of potential. It's a school that grows each year in numbers and in heart. Like every school, it's not perfect but it has character that cannot be ignored. Every once in awhile there is a teacher that cares. There is a member of faculty that truly helps. And most of them are eager to talk to you-make a connection. That's not always bad but for those that they don't necessarily connect with, they don't really prioritize. Aspects of the school are excellent- every branch of there fine arts department for example and their football team is making waves ou n the community, but others- such as a true grip on core education- seem to lost. And they excelled in attempting to get better.
