    My child is a student at Bankhead. The teachers are caring and eager to help all students. They are top notch. I am happy that my child has the opportunity to learn in such a friendly environment. The principal Mrs. Freeman and the assistant principal Mr. Claborn are always friendly and helpful to everyone.

    My two children transfered to this school last year from nearby Jasper City System. Compared with their former school's this school lags way behind educational. Technology is way behind. No internet access as of this day....stone-age Lives!
