As a whole, Etowah City Schools tries its hardest to provide high quality education by hiring dedicated teachers and inspiring students to strive for success both inside and outside the classroom; however, the student culture is negative at times and the safety protocols in the gyms and bandroom are dangerously lacking.
Great place to go to school! Great community to live in! Many wonderful teachers to help guide us along our way to becoming adults in the real world.
