It is great to have small schools! I love my school. Teachers are teaching multiple subjects, which may cause stress, which is not good mixed with a bunch of loud highschoolers. The books are very old and teachers are teaching the same thing each year.
My experience in the Marshall County School System is alright could have been better with the teachings, sports, and the transportation for the kids and i to get on the bus. For example at one of the schools i had to attend to you would get an A for a grade and then understand the lessons; why would you want a grade for something you don't understand. We could have other sports in the elementary and middle beside the ones we alright have. The transportation not to be pack on the bus when you don't have other drivers for the bus and cameras too.
Can improve the school by teaching the students, making sure they learned something, and not just give them a grade just for not learning anything. Sports will be useful to younger generations in the schools can them things to do and stay out of trouble. The transportation situation can be resolved by getting more drivers, give the buses to the school that needs them, and cameras to prevent things from happening on the bus like bullying.
