Yazoo County School District Reviews

I feel like the school would have been much better if everyone was on one accord. It's too much going on. We barely have teachers, some of our teachers aren't qualified. Students are dropping out and they don't know the root cause. If they made school enjoyable, there would be much more participation than we have. Instead of making pep rallies boring, allow more student interaction. Serve better lunch. Lunch is the only meal that some of my peers get every day and it's a shame that the only meal they get is tasteless slop.

I must recognize the excellence administration of Yazoo County School District. Yazoo County staff and faculty pursue so much effort into making the district a well safe community and establishing great learning abilities. In addition, attending Yazoo County has been a great success and I wouldn’t change anything about it.
The school is a very fun school, but i feel that it does not provide enough information to get us prepared for college. I feel like we don’t learn as much as we should and we are not going to be prepared for college
