  • Reviewed by Former Student on March 05, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Overall Tift County High School is a great school system and challenges their students. But as an alumni I wish that that they'd prepared the students more for post secondary schools, not educational wise they were great for that, but for talking more and giving more advice and help for what to schools to choose and what careers may be an interest for those that are lost.
