Augusta Public Schools was very well for my education. I had a good friend group that kept me in track my whole school years. The only problems I had with the school was that it did not stay up to date with today's themes. With the internet changing items or changing criteria for classes. The teachers taught the same items every year and got very good at that, but when the tests needed changed then the teachers didn't know how to teach differently. All teachers need to know how to adapt to change and their teaching styles. All students are different in every grade level and change will be needed in the upcoming years.

I loved having my children go through Augusta Public Schools! There is a rigorous curriculum, talented staff, and incredible opportunities! I highly recommend this school department
School councilors were very welcoming. Helped me to figure out what classes I needed left to take to graduate. Getting ready for graduation, the school was thorough in getting the graduates ready.
