Baldwin County Schools Reviews

Alabama is no breadwinner when it comes to the education system unless you attend a private school, or one of the big-wig schools, such as Thompson High School or any Birminhgam-metro area schools. However, the Baldwin County School System is considered one of the best counties for education in the state. There are schools that tend to rank higher socially and acedemically such as Fairhope and Daphne High School. These schools have a higher percentage of wealthy residents who push for certain acedemic programs, etc. Resulting in a higher acedemic expectation for their students. I attend Foley High School which is a 7A school and is considered the melting pot of the county. One thing that I will give our school credit for is it's diversity. Foley has a handful of every type of person and overall, we do pretty good at coersing together. Sometimes we all get frustrated at how things are ran, or not ran at all, and we get frustrated often, but atleast we get frustrated together.

I have had a wonderful experience in the Baldwin County School System. I attended Robertsdale Elementary, then on to Central Baldwin Middle School, and will finish at Robertsdale High School. During my school experiences, I have been able to establish numerous positive relationships with peers and teachers. I have enjoyed my whole experience. I have refrained from behaviors that get students in trouble and have maintained a healthy GPA. I play basketball, football, and tennis. I am the President of the Key Club and a member of the National Honor Society.
I have attended four schools in Baldwin County, including one elementary, one middle, and two high schools. One of the high schools I did not have a good experience with. Administration failed to accommodate students. The second high school I attended was much better. The councilor did everything she could to help prepare me for college, for that I am forever grateful.
