Guntersville City Schools Reviews

I moved here in middle school and I have met more people here than any other school. I love it! The teachers are all really good at what they do. You can actually have that connection with most of the teachers here. They always help with one on one help and make sure you understand everything before moving on. There are so many different activities you can be involved in and the sport teams here are great.
Review Guntersville City Schools
I enjoyed my experience at Guntersville City Schools. The elementary schools and the high school are older and need of replacement with newer facilities. The teachers are fantastic for such a small school system and able to develop a repor with students. School safety is handled very adequately by Guntersville Police. Sports teams are held in very high regard at Guntersville and many in the student body are involved.
Sports were often put before a lot of things in the school system. Also, when it mattered the most, we discovered that for the most part, the reputation of the school system and what they put their money into was far more important than promises made to students or the students needs in general. Great experience up until the last two years of high school.
