  • The principals Bill Monroe & Coach Kirby do not care about anybody at that school if they are not a sports figure. The teachers are the same except for Sandra Hulgan Linsey Freeman & Ana Murphrey. I as a parent feel as if Pamlyn Wooten should not have been fired and should be rehired. she truly cared about the kids school work. While Coach Britt sat in his chair on the computer or in the field house leaving the kids for pam to tend 2. So i advise parents to not send there children to valley head high school unless they do some serious changing.
