  • I graduated from East Limestone and i hate this school!! Coach black is holding my diploma from me untill i pay a fee for athletics, which i dont owe. And you can't hold a goverment funded diploma agaisnt a sport. I can't even go to college untill i find money or untill he just comes to his senses. I will never let my children come here. This school is the worst school i have been to, and i moved from texas to here like twice so i know different school. I have one thing to say to this school. Get a new principal and quick.

  • It's called a 'generalization.' West - Athens. East - Sparkman. South - Bob Jones. It's humorous that you have chosen to challenge the geographic location direction I cited rather than the actual substance of my rating. For those moving to the area, however, Athens is nearly due West, Bob Jones is South-East, and Sparkman is North-East.

  • Sparkman is north (not South) of EL. or northeast.

  • DON’T BOTHER MOVING TO EAST LIMESTONE. While the cost of real estate in the area is wonderful, your children will pay the ultimate price with a lousy education, blatant favoritism toward the children of ‘native’ East Limestone residents, and a short-sighted, narrow-minded administration that cannot see past their own athletic program.

    Classes are overcrowded and the school buildings are falling down around the students. Drugs are rampant, teen pregnancy is among the highest in the state and the percentage of students who go on to attend college is pathetic.

    My daughter has had the unfortunate experience of mediocre education and small-town arrogance for the last three years. Under no circumstances will there be a fourth. If you are considering the East Limestone area, do yourself and your child a favor. Drive another 5 miles to the west, east or south toward Athens, Sparkman, or Bob Jones.

  • East Limestone High has a completely broken system of education, over crowded classrooms/lunch rooms, the students buy the teachers teaching supplies every year, there is violence and intimidation that goes without or with inappropriate punishment, the kids do not obey their principal, (whom is ultimately responsible for how well the school operates), the drop out rate is astounding yet not surprising, the school board agrees with the principal's morals and bad decisions on inappropriate punishment for the offenses despite specific children being bullies and consistently violent and so on.

    There is favoritism between the principal and specific female students possibly due to him knowing their parents? and...

    Listen up parents...
    Take charge of your kids' lives! Drop by these schools where you leave your children thinking they're actually learning and are safe there!

    Find teachers speaking on politics and religion in an ART CLASS. My daughter was assaulted and believe it or not, after changing my daughters school schedule several times to accommodate the two bullies, one of the girls that assaulted my daughter ended up in one of her classes- and get this, she was seated BEHIND my daughter and the teacher knew NOTHING about the assault. Do YOU think my daughter is safe at East Limestone High?

    If the teachers slack off due to low pay, or if they are uninformed- where do our kids stand?

    Think About It!
    My daughter is now being home schooled, will complete high school one year early and already has scholarships lined up as well as internships in places you would not believe.

    SAVE YOUR CHILD TODAY!
    Don't rely on a broken system to educate them and keep them in an environment that supports learning.

  • This school is by far the worse I have ever experienced. My daughter was assaulted, her schedule changed several times to convenience the same 2 girls- when asked to change the other girls' schedules as opposed to inconveniencing my daughter again. My daughter left school for one day out of the year for an unavoidable appointment- all teachers confirmed there were no tests that day- her math teacher decided to give a test that day suddenly. The next day my daughter was told by another student the teacher tested them. When my daughter asked her teacher what they did the day prior while she was gone he replied; "Oh Yeah- you missed a test yesterday, and I won't give test this week at all due to 10th grade grad testing that is going on. Your GPA will be low due 2 the '0'
