Every student is considered his child, and he goes well beyond normal expectations of parents to help everyone receive the Tennessee diploma with great joy and pride.

Mrs. LuEmma McWilliams, Dean of Students


Mrs. Jo Huffman, Science first and then whatever you need

Mrs. Huffman is a fighter for the students. She is ready to help students in any way that she can, even if it means she must drag out the other subject books and learn so she can teach it to needful students. You will not find a teacher anywhere that pushes harder for student success.

KellyMrs. Kelly Neal Riley, English, Social Studies, and TNPromise Counselor      

Mrs. Riley accepts the challenges of teaching students to glean from their reading and then mesh thoughts, historical facts, and writing purposes on paper. She also walks every student through the process of applying for the TNPromise, FASFA, and applying to colleges. No one gets by her without having a definite purpose for the future.

Mr. Bill Riley, Math

Mr. Bill Riley knows his math—all levels! Whatever math question that anyone has, he can answer it or he will work until he finds the answer!
