The high school offers enormous amounts of opportunities for Dual Enrollment and certifying students for real-world jobs if college is not an option. Personally, I received a certification in Nurse's Assisting and now work at an assisted living facility. There is underfunding in some areas, however, and faculty are constantly changing from year to year. This makes for instability in the atmosphere.

Putnam County Schools provide opportunities for many students. There's a yes program, which teaches students welding, healthcare and more. There's also opportunities for dual enrollment so students can get college credit while in high school. There's not many clubs; however, we can start a club with a teacher sponsor. I like the teachers here. All of mine have been kind and interested in the success of their students. The food is better than my previous school, but everything is still very school lunch tasting. The school is pretty diverse with mostly black and white students; however, there are some Hispanic/ Latino students and a few Asian students. I am not a fan of sports, but our school does okay competition-wise in them. All in all, Putnam is a good school system with opportunities for all students.
It’s a nice school the administration is very friendly and helpful. It is somewhat diverse. Everyone knows everyone. It’s a small town school.
