    Overall Experience: From interning this school as a freshman I enjoyed the school mostly. GREAT student section, caring and understanding teachers, but most of all I personally believe I'm receiving a great education from head to help me move forward in life.

    Overall Experience: Overall it is a decent public education. I wish there was less focus on things like sports and more focus on academic success, which would entail stronger clubs and better counselors.

    Overall Experience: The overall experience has been great. Attending Tuscaloosa County High School has given me a great sense of who I am and what I want to achieve in life. If I could do it all over again, I would choose to work harder to make my experience even greater.

    Sports & Fitness: The athletics are the best! The student involvement, spirit, and support is absolutely stunning. The only thing I would change would be for the athletics department to improve, but even with that, the athletics are still great as it is!
