    i think amory high school does a great job. most of the teachers are very qualified and despite the comments of another parent most of the teachers do well in helping to mold our children. the academics at the school are above par for most schools in the area and the sports programs are always very competitive with football baseball soccer basketball softball tennis swim team band and golf always vying for region or state championships.

    I have two in this school and I don't believe they get challenged enough. Many of the teachers try to act like they are teenagers again and befriend the students rather than lead them in a mature fashion. It has been a disappointment.

    I think this school is very good. It offers a variety of AP programs. It offers wonderful teachers.
