Cullman City Schools Reviews

I have gone to Cullman ever since I started at the Cullman City Primary School when I was 5. I have honestly loved every minute of it. Granted, when I got to high school, there were some bumps along the way, but don't all high school students have some? Regardless of the struggles I have faced, the friends that I have grown up with and the amazing teachers that have helped me along the way have easily made up for those minor bumps. I love Cullman and always will. Go Bearcats!

Cullman City Schools is run much like a monopoly, meaning they have no competition so they can do whatever they want with minimal lash-back from the community around them. The quality of education is extremely high in the school system. However, the quality of the buildings is sub-par. The brand new high school has presented many problems (cracked floors, technology problems, etc.) that should be consistent with a $26 million dollar project. The school system has poured all of its money into the "betterment" of the high school. The other schools in the system have been left in shambles and there are no funds to improve them. Kids come home sick from West Elementary because of mold and mildew. The middle school is falling to pieces. The Cullman City Schools system is irresponsible with its money. Its officials believe "bigger is better" but they go "bigger" at the cheapest cost they can, simultaneously sacrificing the safety of their students.
Cullman High School has wonderful teachers and many activities to involve students. The counselors are great at keeping up with students and helping with college information and keeping everyone up to date. The facility is wonderful and has a lot of useful resources. The environment is friendly and welcoming and I am very proud to be attending Cullman High School.
