  • I think that Summerville out ranks the other schools in the tri-county area. It has a well diversed curriculum for the area. The only thing that I don't like is that politics plays an important role in baseball. There is a student that is there right now. He plays football and basketball for Summerville but the baseball coaches do not give the basket ball players a chance to get on the baseball team because they already have their teams picked before basketball is over. That is not fair to the players of the sport that just want to play. The person I am talking about is a very good ball player all around and a great student.
