I think Lee County school district could be better, there is always room for improvement. Most of our teachers do there job, but there is still too much free time from bell to bell. I want to be challenged in class while learning the things I need for college.

I liked many of the teachers in the school itself, however, the administration changes so frequent at Saltillo High School that it hardly ever remains stable. It seems as if they make the rules as they go and a procedure is something unheard of. However, many of the teachers have significantly excelled me as a student and the change is obvious.
I was a part of the Lee County School System for most of my life. Overall I had excellent teachers. My complaint is that the school that I went to had many issues with faculty relationships. These relationships would flow into the classroom and effect the learning atmosphere. Overall though, the school system is great and I will cherish my time there greatly.
