My high school focused more on fire works for the football team then giving kids the right education. They did have some good teachers like Mrs.White who really wanted the best for her students but then there were some teachers who were really biased. Teachers would allow some students to get away with some stuff like bullying but if the other students said something back to the bully the bully would get away with it but the victim would get in trouble just be cause of who they were. Much could be changed about this school and the way that they go about thing.

My experience at the high school was okay. I got a good education and went to college. Playing football for the school is where I got the most of my experience. I had won awards for being the most motivated player on the team. The team is good but there are some areas they need to improve on as well as the classrooms. The teachers needs to give our homework and let the students read alot more. I have never had any homework or read much in high school.
In my four years at Smith County High School, I have had a wonderful experience. It is a wonderful learning environment, and the teachers are the best of the best.
