Alamance-Burlington Schools Reviews
The dedication and care of the teachers at my school is what I love most. I've built great relationships with my teachers and admire the dedication they have to what they do. My major caveat with my school is our low budget. Our buildings are always dirty and there's constant leaks, some bathroom stalls don't have doors anymore, black mold is everywhere, and if things break or get lost, nine times out of ten the teachers pay out of pocket for the expenses. Additionally, like most southern-based schools, money is poured into football and leaves the other sports and the arts with the dregs.
My experience with Alamance-Burlington Schools was average. However, there were a few things that I enjoyed during the time that I was in these schools. Teachers and staff are, mostly, friendly and helping. They delivered the material as well as the could, as provided by the school system. On the other hand, some things need to change. For example, there is no diversity, which creates a slight racist tension. Another thing that needs to change is how well the school delivers the academic material. Many children are not ready for college because students, like me, are not challenged enough. The material we are given is not good enough for the standardized tests.
Both of my children have attended Alamance Burlington schools. Over the past 13 years, the teachers have been nothing but supportive, kind, and have shown plenty of support to both of my children. I am confident that my eighth grader will be up to par with other graduating eighth graders in North Carolina. I would like to see more tasteful and appealing lunch options for the children. The school district makes a great effort to follow recommended nutritional guidelines. However, the food lacks flavor and generally does not entice the children to want to eat their lunch. The options that are provided on the menu every day for the children are extremely well-rounded. I would like to see those well-rounded options be more flavorful moving forward.
