    I enjoy school here. the 7/8th grade teacher is excellent. Her name is Mrs. Jo Howell. She is so kind. The sixth grade teachers are o.k. The sixth/7th grade History teacher Coach Derek Hutchins is funny and will make you love history. Some of the tachers use corproal punishment as descipline. There are many activities to participate in. The most popular are Football and Cheerleading. There is no High School Clique and no pressure to fit in. This is a very good school. 7 out of 10 stars! GO CATS!!
