I am transfering to Alabama A&M University with plans of majoring in Political Science in the Fall 05-06 semester.Barbour County High School has definitely played an important roll in my decisions to continue my education.

    I went to this school when it was Louisville High School. It is horrible and really needs to improve on education. There is too much violence in this school. I finally got smart and transferred schools when I was in the 11th grade. I would have gone nowhere staying in this school.
