  • Reviewed by Former Student on March 10, 2008
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Towns County is a school of excellence. My entire life was spent in Towns County. The teachers were strong yet understanding and were always personable to the students. This is the main reason that I decided to become a teacher. Now that I'm teaching my own classes in a different part of the state I can really see just how good the school really was. I always thought it was good, but that's because I never knew better. I've observed and taught in other schools, none of which compared to this great school. I really wish they were hiring in my field, because I would definitely love to work there.
