Review Tift County High School
Tift County did make a positive impact in my education. The school offers so many education options and chances, and it really benefitted me. Through Tift County High School, I was able to prepare for the future a great deal. I was able to gain college credits through Move On When Ready, AP Courses, and completing pathways. Also, the pathway and career classes helped prepare me for the future by allowing me to explore career options, and finding what I really wanted to do after high school.
My experience at TIFT County high school was so incredible. If I had to go back to high school I totally would because they (as in the staff) made my years so much fun! 10/10 recommended school for academics, sports, and community.
