Graves County Public Schools Reviews

I loved the teachers and the ability to choose classes that interest you. The fine arts department is beyond great expectations for high school students. Teachers are there to help. There are many sports opportunities to choose from. It was an overall wonderful experience. I would like to see the focus on certain extra circulars change. The most popular sports are more focused on than any other extra activities. Other sports and activities should be equally focused on. They do wonderful things just like the popular activities.

I like the environment and available classes. But the facilities are falling apart and money is going to sports that already have too much funding. Programs such as choir and cross country have lost thousands of dollars due to programs such as football and basketball. The school bought everyone Chromebooks when in reality they should have spent the money on repairing the roof and parking lot. The teachers are amazing but clearly underpaid.
The junior and senior guidance counselors have been outstanding in communicating what parents and students need to do in order to become college ready. I think my children have received a quality education while at Graves County High School. There are many opportunities for students to discover what they are interested in. This helps them determine what major and career field they want to enter prior to graduating. At Graves County my children have many teachers who care about not only their grades but them ad individuals as well.
