Cullman County schools are very involved with sports and a lot of the focus and attention is on that. They recognize sports accomplishments more than academic or club accomplishments. There are hardly any involved clubs or extracurriculars not involving sports. Nearly all the schools do not have a theater or drama program. Most do not have any art programs. I would like to see that change.

My experience at Cold Springs High School has been something I can brag about. Cold Springs High is a small 2A school near Smith Lake, Alabama that holds only 250+ students. Going to school here has been a blessing because not only do I feel like I have another family, I feel like I have a home away from home.

I know it sounds crazy, but coming to school isn't something I dread. I like being surrounded by all my friends and classmates. The teachers are very helpful and I feel like they care where I will go after high school, and they have always made me feel safe. We may be the "small school" of Cullman County, but this title has it's benefits. Our school is so small, that I have never felt threatened by a classmate or teacher. I feel like I've known everyone my whole life and I feel safe here because I know mostly everyone has my back.

I've loved being at Cold Springs High, and I'm sad to have to graduate in May.
