Great school district to raise kids! This is an over all great area but they do need to work on college readiness. They are on the road to working towards that goal. Staff all seem to care about the kids and making the school environment a comfortable one.
I attended Cumberland Gap High School, in Harrogate Tennessee. My experience there was as good as it could have been for a liberal student in an all-conservative town. The administration tried to make school as interesting as possible, but had this noose around their necks with dress code, and student conduct. The majority of the teachers, (excluding two or three) all did their utmost best to help you if you were struggling. The rules regarding tardiness were ridiculous, somehow showing up late was a hideous crime, opposed to not showing up at all...CGHS did not help get me ready for college at all. In such a small town, there is little diversity. In the next few years I would like to see more ethnicity in my old school, and perhaps, for the school system to realize that visible female shoulders and legs are not a valid reason to send someone home.
