I loved being a part of the Phoenix Nation. My graduation was amazing! I was lucky enough to be the first class at SHS to graduate on the football field. There are many issues with administration but the schools pretty much run ok because we have great students and great parents. I took honors classes but most of my honors teachers were not all that great at teaching. My dad was the best teacher I had while I was at SHS.

Our daughter has had a tremendous experience in this district- gifted, performing arts, academics. There are excellent teachers and administrators, and the facilities are well kept, with access to upgraded technology.
Gordon county school system is a great establishment. They put their time and money investing into so many children, and I would not be the person I am today without them.
