Cocke County School District Reviews

3 reviews
Cocke County is a good school located in Newport, Tn. Cocke County is in a lower economic county but most of the teachers are very involved with helping students stay on track to graduate and also encourage students to seek higher education after graduation. Cocke County does not have a lot of extra resources so the facilities could be updated.

The school system can best be described as put the kids through and get them out. This district isn't contributing to the academic society. Most of the students in this area won't do much out of contributing to the welfare statistic.
I like Cocke County High School a lot but one thing i would like to see changed is the exceptions for the rules. Some people will get in trouble while others will be doing more obscene things and not.
