Kentucky End of Course Assessments (EOC)

    I think that it is a good school for the most part but some teachers should be watched.....

  • (5 years ago)

    This school is pretty cool. Most of the teachers are great but there is a few I wouldn't want near certain people. I cried one morning afraid that something may happen. I'm not the only one who feels that way. Some other people also think that. It is terrible. I just wish I could feel more safe and secure at school. I am one of the top students in my class so I have a good amount of friends. There is one student who sometimes gets on my nerves. They think they are just God's gift to mankind. They tell someone to do something the 'right way.' I would love to have a school that wasn't so caught up in cliques and sports. This school is a good choice to an extent.

    Corbin High School has the best teachers!

    I attended Corbin High School and received a wonderful education and felt prepared for college with the exception of the Math department. I felt that the Math department didn't prepare me for the college entry level. I am a good math student but just wasn't taught the proper material my junior-senior years. I even took a higher level math at Corbin but still wasn't prepared. CHS prides itself in its sports which they do very well (as they should considering the large staff they hire JUST for sports activities) but the kids aren't interested in arts writing music and such. I also thought that Corbin is the town where their parents live their lives through their children that to me is very sad. CHS has without a doubt the best sports programs in the area but when compared ot the state as a whole its really not that great.

    Both of my children attended Corbin and graduated with honors. They had no probelms getting in to their respective colleges and have excelled there as well. Both were active athletically and academically. Corbin has a highly sports motivated program yet they do not lose sight of why they are there to learn. They are ranked 3rd overall in the state at this time academically and have maintained a top 20 status since these rankings began.

    Great education great social environment great sports. Corbin truly is a great school. There is a family feel to every Redhound in the school. When I say Redhound it's not just the athletes. It's every student.

    I graduated from Corbin High just three years ago. I strongly feel that Corbin is the best school in the area. I now attend a University and due to my eduactiona at Corbin I have been able to attain very high goals in college. Corbin taught wiht a high level of academics. Moreover while sprots are important at Corbin and help teach leadership skills there is aslo a GPA level that must be met in order to play. I will soon be teaching at Corbin myself and I will also send my own children to Corbin as well.

    I attended Corbin High for two terriable years before leaving and going to another high school. The education here isn't all that great no matter how much they sugar coat it.Spots comes first even before education and everyone knows that!

    I have been a student in the corbin city schools and I'm now a parent. I can't help but notice that there is such a strong push for children to be athletic but a lack of effort in pushing them to do better in school. The coaches are so worried about tradition that they forget why kids are sent to school to begin with. Also even the teachers seem to make differences between the kids based on who their parents are and how much money they make. Its bad enough that children have to face those problems from their classmates let alone their teacher. Don't get me wrong i do want my child to be involved in sports but school comes first. I feel that corbin city schools should start gearing themselves towards education first.

    One of the better schools in the area but several teachers lack interest in teaching the students and leave it to the students to teach themselves. Sports outshine academics.
