Autauga County Schools Reviews
My high school, Prattville High School, is often lacking in proper funding for the most important thing in the school, education. While spending hundreds of dollars on things like the football team and redecorating the restrooms, lunchroom, and hallways, they do not seem to care about providing money for soap and paper towels in the restrooms, fixing or getting better projectors for watching school related videos needed for assignments, or class sets or newer textbooks. My freshman year of high school, for the first few weeks of the school year, I was assigned a biology book that was completely missing the front and back cover, with the seam holding the pages together starting to come undone. Although the high school has its faults, it certainly does not lack in school spirit for the faculty or the students. The school gets very riled up during the pep rallies and very much enjoys attending and decorating for them.
Autauga County Schools are filled with people who want to see you succeed. Every teacher I had seemed genuinely excited to be teaching and making sure I did my best. The high school was the recipient of the AP College grant, and while the courses were difficult, they were so much fun and helped me prepare for college level courses. I even received college credit for passing the exams! It's not the most funded school, but it does the best it can with what it has and aims to provide a safe and fun learning environment. The only thing I would want to change is that every student wanted to be at school as much as I did and that more funding was available so that more teachers could be hired to minimize students per class.
From what I've seen of the Autuaga County Schools and from talking with friends that have children enrolled in the Autuaga County School System, they have a good academic and sports education program. The school system gives the students a variety of options to choose from and hands on skills toward adult preparedness. The school system seems to care about the students and the way they experience learning for the future.
