I went to a tiny school in Dekalb County called Valley Head. I enjoyed my time at Valley Head and enjoyed the small community we had! Everyone knows everyone! My graduating class contained 41 people and we were all pretty close!

I loved that the teachers were so willing to help me understand the subject matter in their class; however, I did have a few teachers that didn't care and didn't go that extra step to help me understand fully what they were trying to 'teach' me.
I love that my school is found in a closely knitted community. Although we could use more money to have more academic opportunities, everything goes with ease.
