I'm sorry, I wish I would thought sooner to let you know. It never clicked to tell you. FYI some of them are out Monday too, I know Brookland is. Also, on the apartments, try magic touch, none of them are in bad areas they all have a little patio w privacy fence they are all landscaped nicely have wd hookups and dishwashers. I've lived in three different sets and had good luck at all of them. Did I have any luck w apts today?

As you can see not Nettleton they have a awful school filled with Trouble!! They will be getting smaller and smaller as years go by. Their Sports programs are bad! Starting with Boys Basketball and Student Section! And when the Rams whoop them Tuesday like the punks the are you will see no class and Thugs come out full board!! If you want Good School come to PHS!!

Brookland has always been a good place to live. It's a very tight knit community. Their law enforement does not mess around and keep a close eye on everything there. Good decision

Brookland is the future of the Jonesboro area. All growth will be between Jonesboro and Paragould. You should buy a house if possible instead of renting...interest rates will never be lower and property values in that area will only increase!

You're the one that ends up looking like the punk. You must be either a teenage thug or a middle aged man that is trying to live out his youth through high school athletics.

This parent is looking for a school with a good special needs program.

BTW, Nettleton ranks 70th out of 234 Arkansas schools, while Paragould ranks 187th.

The best what? The best school for people who want to slide their kids by without a thorough education. If that's what you meant, then yes, it's the best.

When you want to start putting facts, you are more than welcome "to go on". You should refer to the letter to the editor from the freshman at U of A who was disgusted with her VV education. She graduated with honors and had NEVER written a term paper EVER! She said she had been done a disservice by the teachers and faculty of VVHS by not being given the proper tools and education to enter college. The scores reported on paper are not a true representation of what VV offers as a school. They are also not the best and newest facilities either. The high school is located in a building that's older than I am and I remember when Elvis died! Just because it has a new facade doesn't make it new. Do not be mislead by these so called state awards that VV receives. If you want a good education, scholarships, top rate sports programs, and award winning teachers and staff......go to Jonesboro!
