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.

There is no need for school dress code, which consists of khaki pants and collared shirt. We live in a rural, farming community and not all students can afford to buy additional clothing for school. Most farmers wear jeans, therefore the scho district should change the dress code, especially for those needy students.
It is a small school, which means everyone knows everyone. It's very close-knit. Sports are a very big thing here. Teachers, parents, students, the whole community are very much into high school sports.
