    Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school is great. When I think back I see how much I have grew in knowledge and experience. The teachers at this school do not allow you just to come to school and not work. As a student I am very grateful that I have attended this school. My favorite experience at this school would have to be marching band. Marching band has made a big impact on me and my behavior. Marching band helped me to stay focus in school because if I wasnt making good grades I wouldn't be able to participate in events the band went on. I would choose again if I could do it all over. The school is a perfect learning environment. I would love to experience everything once again if I could.

    Teachers: The teachers at Tifton County High School does their best when teaching the class. The overall quality of the teachers are very professional and well mannered. The teachers use different styles to engage the class in the lesson. Also, the teachers some times change their teaching style to fit the class. The teachers are very knowledgeable in what they are teaching. They use their knowledge to teach the students in a interesting way.The teachers effectively communicate with the students. Whether it is it by e-mail or face to face. The teachers try their best with grading. Although they can get tied up with teaching four classes the teachers still effectively put their grades in on time.
