Hancock County School System needs an entirely new direction. The curriculum that is emplemented prepares the students in no way possible. As an alumni, I was woefuly unprepared and struggled throughout my college experience.

Hancock County is a very small area with a lot of potential. Very frequently it is not met. My experience there was not the greatest. Though the schools were very welcoming when we applied, the way that the staff handled issues was very displeasing. My little brother was bullied very heavily and they refused to intervene. There were a lot of issues with students that seemed to go ignored and I feel as though it creates a lot of worse situations which could be resolved before they got worse. The school's focus is on sports and academics are second to that. It creates a culture within the school which I found very troublesome. Though The people are very nice, I would not recommend these schools.
I personally graduated top of my class and it was an okay school, with very intelligent teachers. We had some of the most educated teachers in the world. We were very low on resources because we are a poor district, but it was nice going to school knowing everybody.
