I'm an educator and a parent. I also attended Aiken County Public Schools during my high school years. I went to college, and came back to teach special education. Now my daughter will be graduating from one of the schools I taught at. Aiken is a beautiful city and county and the public school system has produced two successes - myself and my daughter!

My experience with Aiken County Public Schools has been quite amazing. Every year they had something new to offer with their academic curriculum which many students seemed to love. Although, I will say some Aiken County Public School work so hard to be the best it upsets students like myself. Teachers continue to give hours and hours of homework that some can not even do most of it because it can be so overwhelming. Most student participate in extra curricular activities which causes even more stress to keep up with both. One thing I would like to see change before I graduate this year from Silver Bluff High School is teachers and students working together to help each other from becoming stressed. If students and teachers can work together to work out schedule of when and how much homework to give, I think students will be able to keep up with their grades, extra curricular activities, and social life.
I attend RSMHS and have attended since Middle School. For me although the school has always been underated with not many students and my school not having a lot of money the education level is still high. We have had many successful students come out of the high school. The teachers are all very well known and so is everyone else with each other as we do not have many students. This gives teachers and administrators to give love to each and one of the students. Attending since middle school has impacted me as the people in this school are my community and they have made me push myself even harder to continue my education.
