Offer a plethora of sports and extra curricular activities. Some testing scores have been low, but are improving. Bus is primary source of transportation. Kids seem to be unhappy with meals.

After attending school in the Harlan County Public School district for the entire course of my education I feel like out school are wonderful. They are however a few things I would change but for the most part the experiences that I have had while growing here have been amazing.
I love the atmosphere of Harlan county high school. I also love the sports. I would like to improve the food that is served there and maybe the variety of classes. I would love to have a bigger variety of classes.
