Knott County Public Schools Reviews

I would like to see the treatment of student-athletes versus non-student athletes. The student-athletes at Knott County Central High are treated with the utmost resources, respect as well as all around better treatment than students that are not involved in sports. I would say the athletes were put on a pedestal, they do not have to do the academic work that the traditional student is required to do. Along with the opportunities the students that play sports are offered, that others are not. Besides the treatment and work being different the classes most are required to take and have students that play sports do not.

Knott county public schools have been good at times and not so good at other times. Last school year they put students from cordia through a numerous amount of turmoil when they attempted to shut the school down for little to no reason. I would like to see the position of super intendent be changed. The faculty is friendly but sometimes don’t accomplish their job tasks. When you walk into a knott county school it is hardly ever clean. They should really look into hiring some decent janitors. Especially over at Cordia.
