Breathitt County Public Schools Reviews

I have been a student at Breathitt County High School for the last 4 years, I am a high school senior and my experience in this school district has been pretty great. As I'm reaching the end of my senior year I have started to notice the little things that I'm going to miss the most. Such as the teachers and the relationships that I have built with them. They have all tried to help me in every way possible and for that I am very thankful, because the good Lord knows I needed the help.

It is absolutely amazing. such great teachers and amazing students. They really go out of their way to make you feel loved and appreciated. They have
made me the person I am today
I would like more involvement in terms of drug prevention and such. Also I would like to see the buses be cleaned more often. The condition of some of them are horrid.
