I would like to see Horseshoe Bend High School prepare their students for college by offering ACT/SAT prep courses. Other schools in the State of Alabama prepare their students for success with these prep courses. Other than that, Horseshoe Bend is a great school. We have teacher and parent support above all others. Our small community is able to accomplish great things with their support. I have opportunities larger schools can't offer by having one on one interaction with my teachers, an abundance of after school activities, and community service involvement. I love my school and I'm eager to see how my school will continue to grow and provide even more service to my community.

Horseshoe Bend is a small K-12 school in the rural town of Newsite, Al. The faculty is great with having 101 time with the students and provide a great learning experience. My connection with the teachers and students felt more like family than just being in a regular school system. Because Horseshoe Bend is in a smaller location, everyone knows each other and will support each other whenever there is trouble. However, there are some minor errors in communication and acknowledgement of upcoming events. Scheduling and planning for school events can be complicated due to busy schedules for the teachers and club organizations. Students fall behind in class and risk in having lower grades.
Horseshoe Bend is a great school that involves the community through many clubs. The only thing I would love to see change is an equal amount of funds for all clubs, sports, cheer, band, and adding new clubs within the school. Horseshoe Bend High School has great faculty and safety for the protection of the students, visitors, teachers and staff. The teachers there go out of their way to insure a child who might not get what goes on in class gets it. The teachers have after school help, in class help , and they try their best to always be available for any student or parent who has questions.
