I have had an amazing Highschool experience here. My favorite opportunity that I have recieved was the chance to travel to the Ohio State campus for a leadership conference. It’s called the Ibelieve foundation. I made many friends and learned new ways to become a better leader in the Appalachian States. The school itself is small, so you get to know all of your fellow students and the teachers personally. I feel safe in my school and issues are solved easily with help of office officials.

Meigs County High School is a typical small town school. This means the teachers are very involved with the students, people who have specific last names are treated significantly better than other students, student drama is everywhere, everyone knows everyone else, and the students grew up together. Aside from that, the Acedemics are exceptional. The English department is through the roof. All of the English teachers are extraordinary and care deeply about their students. The math department is not so good. The range of classes available are improving, and the sports teams are surprisingly very successful. The choir and handbells are incredible and Host two concerts per year thanks to an incredible instructor. The band has room to improve. There are a wide range of teachers on the good to bad scale but this is unavoidable. Meigs High does everything it can to get the students ready for college. It is all-around a pretty good school.
Meigs County High School is a small town high school with a lot of focus on education and sports. Staff members truly put their all in when it comes to teaching and support for the students and parents. The teachers treat the kids with respect. They do what they can to make sure each and every student is felt welcomed, not left out, has the supplies and materials needed for a successful school year. In my opinion, they have the best teachers and staff around.
