    Smoke & mirrors. Collge prep is a joke. Only 4 AP classes and in 3 of those 4 a student wouldn't be able to pass the AP exam after the class. Teachers give lackluster effort. They don't demand enough of the students. They keep touting their test scores but they don't mean anything. Those tests are incredibly easy and they don't measure a student's ability to reason think or do well in the future.

    Kosciusko continues to have great schools from K-12 under the guidance of Superintendent Dr. David Sistrunk. KHS provides particularly good college prep courses along with a structured environment that students need.
