Lamar County Reviews
I lived in the country rather than in town, which meant a 15 minute drive to get anywhere. Poor variety of places to shop and had to use Alabama services for everything, although I was closer to MS. The worst part was my son had a learning disability and had previously always had tutoring and teacher support team (TST), but in the Millport school, he didn't get either and ended up in their alternative school (not for behavior, mind you) with busy work. He also had to sit separately from the other kids on the bus. It still infuriates me he was treated this way. I yanked him out of public school and began homeschooling him, but it derailed his entire education. I wouldn't recommend anyone not from the area placing an elementary age child into their system if they have any issues at all, and probably not even then. An awful, life-changing experience.
