I recently graduated Craig County High School. Although the education at other school districts is more challenging, the teachers care very much about the well-being and success of every student due to the small numbers. Most of the people there are very friendly and will make life long friends. The teachers in particular were very accomodating in giving out references for colleges and jobs and really push students to apply for scholarships and schools.

Craig County is a very close knit school, it gives a family feel all around. Excellent faculty and staff. Everybody knows everybody and helps when anyone is in need.
Great school with great program that help you prepare yourself for college. Teachers are very active in helping students learn and always go out of their way to help those who struggle. Food is great and affordable. The clubs and activities are fun and easy and anyone can join! Players are very active and competitive in the sports they play and always try their hardest while juggling with their academics.
