My experience at Scott's Branch is very nice. I was here since my 9th grade and it's a very nice school. I love the administration and the safety for our students. Our teachers do a excellent job of covering material and getting us ready for State Test. I would refer this school to anybody living around the area. However, I would change the food. Although some students receive free or reduced lunch, we don't have a wide variety of different foods to eat, and when we do get served food, it's not an adequate amount. All in all, very nice school. Thumbs Up!

My experience at Scott's Branch HighSchool was enjoyable to an extent. Since being in such a small town, this school doesn't offer as much opportunities as a much bigger school would. However, I am thankful for the advice I did receive because there are a few good people in this district that actually care about you and want to see you become successful. What I did not enjoy was the number of teachers we have and the fact that most of them are international and make up most of the of teachers. Also, the teachers here have not been here longer than 3 years. Only to say a few have been here for that long and that still is not something to brag about. Every year we have a new principal, new teachers, athletic directors and other things of that nature.
I feel as if MOST of the 'administration' are only here for the checks. They have these nonchalant attitude with the STUDENTS. I feel like everyone plays a role in the diversity situation . These children are not use to other races. They bully them for being them. As a young African American student here, it's hard for me at times. Our dearly beloved teachers are no better. 'Home Away from Home', they said. Tah, they don't get involved until it's too late. I've tried to speak up about these issues , but it was pushed down. I do not recommend this school to anyone.
