Hattiesburg Public School District Reviews

My first experience at Hattiesburg High School was great, I had good teachers, was taught with the best education, and the best school environment. But, when I enrolled in the 10th and 11th grade, the schools started to struggle when the district income dropped causing teachers to get low payment, and schools having to manage low budget to keep the schools going. We started to lose teachers and administrators since the situation ,and they blame the students but the students are excellent we just need to come to class more over, and school to help improve the school. The students are not the only problem because, most of us wants to learn but can’t because we don’t have a teacher, we have long terms subs.

This school district is really care about their students but they tend to focus on the wrong things. Like the Superintendent worry about what the high school band is doing instead of worrying about fixing the problems in the school district. Sometimes HPSD do things at the last minute. Like waiting until the end of school year to inform the Principal at HHS that it's a claimed an "unsafe school' by the state. I would like to see HPSD focusing on more major issues and not wait till the last minute to do things.
I like the fact my teachers actually cared about me, my grades, and test scores. Not all teachers are good teachers, but I had some very good teachers. What I would like to see change is the consistency of the teachers and principals.
