My overall experience with Tallapoosa county schools is that they are decent but the schools could improve tremendously. The schools are good at trying to make all students feel important and excepted. However, some students are favored because they are important members of a sports team or because their parents contribute money to the school.Teachers in Tallapoosa county do not take their job serious and are more focused on fitting in with fellow staff than trying to help the students in their class.
