Grainger County School District Reviews

I feel that The Grainger County School District is mediocre at best. The extracurricular classes are either dedicated to farming, cosmetology, or teaching. It is very frustrating as an aspiring artist, and art student, to be able to excel in their talents when the school dedicates everything to one of the three classes I have listed. Even going as far to cut the art budget by $300. My art teacher has to struggle with bake sales and even using money out of her own pocket to provide for her art students.

Grainger County schools, especially Grainger High School worships sports above all else, including academics. If a coach is also a teacher, they are absent 80% of the time because of "coaching duties." We have had four low grade bomb threats in two months, and in the summer months GHS, a ten year old building, smells of raw sewage. The small county is ran by politics, and many teachers who should not qualify are still in the classroom due to their last name and social stance. Seniors receive little college readiness, and many graduates fail in college. Clubs are looked over, even though they bring home gold year after year, while the girls' basketball team receive tshirts from the board of education for making it to a tournament, only to get their butts handed to them. Diversity is very poor. A small percentage of Grainger Schools is Latino, the rest Caucasian or mixed race. I would not send my child through Grainger County School Systems.
My experience in Grainger county high school, so far is like any sophomores experience. Every semester I meet new people,have new classes, and new teachers. My high school has a variety of things it offers. Some of the things I would like to change about the school would be the dress code, and change how many times you can take a class (electives). Parking passes, buy one from the time you start driving to you graduate,instead of every year. To be able to have our phones out at all times.
