Petal is a star school district. They have an amazing JROTC program at the highschool, the number of teams is amazingly high, and the education is awesome. However, some teachers employed there need to expand their horizons in teaching, learn to be more flexible.
I love how many different classes and educational opportunities Petal has. The CTE classes are extremely helpful in deciding what career path a student wants to take, and the learning environment in all the classes is welcoming and inviting.
