Meade County High School is a public High School. I, as a current student, have encountered numerous experiences that have been both good and bad.
My high school offers many AP classes. The wonderful part about the AP classes is that they are offered to students and students have a chance of gaining a college credit! If I had to change one thing about AP classes, it would be giving freshmen and sophomores more AP opportunities.
Meade County High School has amazing teachers. The teachers are greatly appreciated, but they never get to request what they want to teach besides a subject. If I had to change one thing about the teachers, it would be for the teachers to be able to have more freedom with their classes they want to teach.
Overall, Meade County High School is a very nice school and the campus is extremely large. I love Meade County High School, but I would definitely make a few adjustments.

Meade County has many opportunities for students to take hold of. There are many clubs and activities that students can explore. Recently, every student has received a Chromebook 300e and free lunch/breakfast every day to enhance the learning experience. I'd love to see more arts recognition in the school culture. I'd also love to see more Advanced Placement classes being offered and less students being thrown into them. Meade County is centered in a predominantly Caucasian area, so the lack of ethnic diversity is not the school's fault. Overall, however, Meade County High School is always on the cusp of change with technology and making itself the best it can be.
This school is just bout exactly what you would expect from a small rural town. Dip covers the hallways and stairs to a point where the janitors begin to ignore it. The students are either white trash in the aspect of believing they are "ghetto" or extremely "redneck." The school itself has issues with cleanliness and the restrooms are awful. Students with family members as staff also receive extreme favoritism. If i were in charge I would also change our food to be both healthier and actually edible. Some teachers are wonderful people, and others, usually the male teachers, are scary and uncomfortable to their female students. All in all, it is much better than schools out in the bad areas of Louisville, but it isn't the kind of school I would want to send my kids to.
