1 review for Scottsburg High School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 29, 2010
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Not very good, at least when I was there. Most of the faculty get their positions simply because they attended the school when they were teens (having been a jock during that time helps you earn a teaching job at SHS later on). It doesn't help that the school board consists of barely-literate, fundamentalist (...) who, for fun, like to come down (...) the students for perceived miscreants. Avoid this school; indeed, avoid living in this grim, white trash pitstop off of I-65 north of "Luhll-vull, Kentucky."
