    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!

    Teachers: The teachers in general are friendly educators who provide a great environment in the classroom for students. Despite that, some teachers aren't quite efficient in their teaching techniques. Students who are taught by these educators usually pass due to their own initiative. However, struggling students may be doomed under the teaching of these teachers. While there are some present educators who do provide a great education, some only see their position as a chore and treat it as such. Luckily, there are only a small amount of teachers who fit that description. Most teachers are caring and put great effort into their teaching.
