  • I was a teacher at Scotland. They asked the community, students AND teachers about the change to smaller learning communities. We all said it was wrong for our school they did it anyway. Because they got grant money. .I am still asking where that money went because it did not show up in classrooms. I finally got fed up and left. No they do not always listen to the teachers.

  • i attend scotland high school now! there are a few positive things there, but the negatives weigh the positives out! the staff does not know what they are doing, and thats a reason we are not passing now and they want to put the blame on us! they always accuse us of doing stuff we dont even do! they always listen to the teachers, its never their fault!

  • I went to the high school for my entire high school period. I managed to graduate with a high GPA, unlike many students. From the outside the school appears to be simply extremely underfunded. However the school has money, just no one is sure where it goes. probably to the football department. During the year of 2008-2009 the school was unable to make copies for students due to the fact that the school could not afford to by paper or ink for the copy machines. The school is unable to afford new books or replace the teachers who retire. Students are forced to take online classes because the school does not have teachers to teach classes. Students are forced to take precal and Calculus without having Trigonometry. Therefore a larger homework load must be assigned to students inorder to keep up with the state standards(which the school is barely meeting if they are at all).Their are many students who are unable to get the reccommended classes in high school needed for going into a major in a college or university. In fact many students from Scotland High school spend their first year of college improving their GPA or getting classes that they should have been able to take in high school. I would not reccomend this school for anyones children.

  • scotland high has alot of problems that they try to keep hidden from the public.. for example where is all the money going to? i can answer that, not where it should be which is too the classroom and teachers. Scotland county ask the people what they should change but yet when we voice our opion nothing gets done about it.. i wonder why that it. there is alot of good that the high school is trying to do but its like when they take 10 steps forward they also take 8 steps backward. What good is that doing? i was just up there this week and had to take an eoc but the teacher didnt have enough calculators for every student. with all the money that we pay in taxes we should have enough to afford one for every student from 9-12 grade.. This is from a worried senior.
