Scott County School District Reviews

Scott High is a very diverse school. The principle is very understanding, and is willing to help all students succeed. The student councilors work with students to find the best fit for them in the classes that they need for their future. The student body is full of racially diverse students who are willing to accept people from different social classes.

The Scott County School District is quite possibly the worst school district in the state of Tennessee. It is a predominantly poor area, and the school system coaches kids to keep the cycle of poverty going. The students are held to surprisingly low expectations from almost all the faculty, with the exception of some. It is made clear that any student with actual aspirations are foolish and they are instead coached toward the local community college, which all students are forced to apply to, or they are pushed towards the workforce or the military. This is a school system that squanders pupil's potential instead of nurturing it, and it will always be this way because no one cares to change it.
