    Overall Experience: While I was in enrolled at Natchez High, I had a nice experience overall. The only downfall the school had was the low funding and not having enough books/materials to go around to everyone.

    Sports & Fitness: At Natchez High School, sports are very important. The basketball team's performance led them to be state champions two times in a row. Fans of our sports team travel far and wide with the teams to support them. The summer fitness programs are also great, and they prepare the students for the year ahead.

    Health & Safety: The school is an open school. If a student want to leave school, it wouldn't be hard for them to. The nurse was only on campus 3 days a week, and all she would do was look at you and tell you that you weren't sick unless you were puking your guts up. The schools medical supplies is very low. One of my friends cut their ankle open three day before school was over for summer and the supplies was very low and the nurse toke forever to arrive at the scene.
