I have been attending Aiken County Public Schools since I began school. I started off in elementary at Jefferson. I later went on to go to Aiken Elementary. I formed very strong bonds with many of my teachers. They pushed me to do my best and achieve great things. I went to Schofield Middle after elementary. This is where I was introduced to many different cultures. I expanded my friend group tremendously, and gained knowledge on all types of different races. I was also introduced to cheerleading. I had a coach who made us work to our full potential. I saw how much hard work paid off! I completed Schofield, and went on to start high school at Aiken High School. I am currently enrolled at this school as a senior. Aiken High has a beautiful new campus and I am more than honored to have be among the first students to study in our new school! Aiken High has great staff that will make sure you do what is needed to graduate. They are very motivational and they love to see students succeed.

Personally, I go to North Augusta high school within the Aiken County school district. North Augusta High School is an AP (advanced placement) school that is great for college readiness, academics, clubs, and sports. It is a dream high school! However, some things, like training of staff against harassment, bullying, and gun threats, could be better. (On behalf of the whole district).
I feel like Aiken County is just like any other average school system. One that looks out for its students but also does things that don't make much sense. I hate missing days that we could have made up because, in the end, we get out of school later than other schools. I know good teachers are hard to come by now of days and I feel like we have an equal amount of good and bad teachers at North Augusta High School. It's obvious which teachers care about you and want to increase your education on the subject they are teaching you. Some of the kids can be disrespectful to teachers but others treat them with respect. Our system and students aren't perfect, however, we all work together to make school an inviting setting rather than a deflecting one.
