I will give u a real response. I grew up in Surgoinsville. It is a nice small town, with honest, hardworking people. I went to Surgoinsville Elementary, Middle, and Volunteer High School. I received a great education. I now live in Kingsport and my kids go to Kingsport City Schools, and I can not honestly say I am that impressed or that it is any better than the education I received. Overall I think it is a great place for a family.

If you really want to know the difference there are standardized results based on data. anyone you know who is a teacher would be able to access that information. if you don't know anyone perhaps a faculty member whom you have a good line of communication with would obtain those for you. saying that they're all the same is nothing more than total ignorance. bless you for caring

Crapzzup - the only one here thinking what you're thinking is YOU. But thanks for bringing it back down to the level we all expect Topix to be. Now go back to your XBox.

Mount Carmel Elementary is the best elementary school in Hawkins County. I wasn't impressed with either middle school..Surgoinsville or Church Hill Middle. Volunteer High is a good high school. However, it does depend on what you want out of your child's educational experience. Hawkins County offers a good education, however if your child, or children, are wanting to do extra things like sports, band, etc...Kingsport City offers a lot more in those areas. They have connections with colleges to get exposure for the kids in sports. They also have more money in the schools, so they offer more opportunities as far Advance placement classes and places they take their sports teams, band, choirs, etc.. Hawkins County has great family schools, not as competitive in nature, but close knit. One is not "better" than the other. Kingsport offers more opportunities. Hawkins County is more family oriented. It just depends on what kind of experience you want or don't want for your kids.
